Angry Something needs to go - either the popups or me.

Well, I logged onto user cp and to my horror my popup blocker clicked.

Turned popups off and a popup(originating from this site ) came up.
What are you thinking David? Are you going mad?

I know that you need the money to keep the site alive and i fully understand that - that's why I don't mind the banners.


But popups are one thing i hate , right next to spam
Maybe instead you should put in a donations system.

But please, get rid of the popups or I shall make myself scarse.

I don't seem to have any pop up problems with IE when I log on to user cp. THen again, I have Norton Personal Firewall that has built in web ad blocker and it does an excellent job. Almost never had a pop up since installation. A couple slipped by, but I've been using this for almost a year now so that's pretty impressive.

Maybe something is up with that ads. I will take a look. What browser are you running?

Well, rest assured people. We would never run pops over the forum.

If the need arised to run pops to cover hosting, they would be either frequency capped to 1 per 24 hours or on less used pages, such as the member list for example.
