Anyone else having Wikia problems...?

Recently I tried to visit the Wiki and, although I managed to get there, within seconds the screen was replaced with the following message:

"Something interfered with this website loading

This could be a temporary problem with your network, or due to your adblocker

Try:

Check your internet connection and reload the page
If you are using an adblocker disable it by clicking on the adblock icon in your browser toolbar
If the problem persists, consider leaving a message on the adblock user forums"


I tried other branches of Wikia, and got the same message. I have adblock on as a default with pretty much no exceptions, and upon Google searching, I saw reports of Wikia banning adblock across the entire site in past times, so I'd like to ask: Is anyone else having this problem (just to determine that it's an adblock ban and not something on my machine) and if it is a ban, what should we do about it?

Thanks!

      -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 I can reach it. I don't have Adblock, but I do usually block Javascript, which usually keeps the amount of ads I see to a minimum as a side bonus.... more
      • Hmm. Will consider.twistedwindowpane, Thu Dec 7 7:17pm
        I'm still having the same problems I did yesterday, so I have a feeling it's the ad blocker I'm using (a triple-threat combo of Flashblock, BetterPrivacy and Leechblock.) I'll look into that soon.... more
