    Hey Brett, I saw your brief discussion in Main about pop up ads appearing in more frequency. I've noticed an increase as well. You suggested killing cookies, is this still your sugestion, or are you looking into another way?

    Diddle, under no circumstances should you get a pop up more than once a day! If you are getting them more often, it means your cookies are messed up, but don't disable them or stuff won't work right for you on the board. I suggest clearing your cookies out of your computer for this site, if you can. That seems to be the problem. That or clear your cache.

    I don't know about paradiddle, but tonight I was getting a new pop up ON EVERY PAGE I VISITED. Ugh...But then I cleaned my cookies out (like you suggested) and thankfully the problem was solved on my end.

    Brett, you gotta get rid of these damn things. I know server costs are expensive, but I'd be glad to donate a little to do away with pop ups.

    Sorry I've been away slamming on a video project for the last week, but YES, I can hardly move without getting a pop up. Each and every page I move to freezes until the pop up loads. It's crazy. This is a work computer, so I'm reluctant to load popup stopper, but I sure have at home.

    I don't know what to tell ya Brett, but these things are worse than ever.

    Ok, don't know if you did anything, but I seem to be having much more luck this afternoon. I only go a pop up when I navigated to the home page, and then when I entered the forums.

    Maybe it's that morning rush kinda thing? Either way, I'm crusin without one since I got into the forums.

    Same here. I got on the Forums earlier today, and the popups (and popunders) appeared like crazy. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] Looks like I'm gonna have to d/l the Popup Stopper.

    Panic Ware's Pop-Up Stopper is a great program, it works perfectly, and it's free!
