    yea, it's getting ridiculous with all the selling, am i at a dealership or a vh website
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Donate more money to run the site and maybe the annoying ads will dissappear!

    Maybe we need a fundraising drive. Or maybe an ultra-premium membership. Or howabout everyone donate a dollar and help Brett out.

    I dont want donations like that. There should be NO pop-ups associated with this web site.

    There was however a pop-under that showed every 12 hours. I didn't think it would be a big deal, turns out it has been so I turned it off. It's just not worth the trouble and I don't want people pissed off over it. But I would never have a pop-up, ever. If something's popping up I don't know what it is, but I am assuming it's the pop-under one that's the issue. So it's gone.

    As for all the advertising, there are NO MORE ads on the site than there ever were. It's just not a VH Store banner at the top anymore, and I moved up the ad on the side of the page.

    But there is nothing more on the forum in terms of advertising than there has ever been. In fact there's less, I removed the banner at the bottom of the page that was always there for my hosting company.

    So beyond the pop-under, it's not like I've put a billion ads all over the pages, it's the same two positions that have been taken for 5 years.

    I don't want donations, I want to have a few ad banners positions up on the site to generate steady revenue so I don't have to worry about maintaining this place financially every month. Times are very tough right now, so that's why I did it. And they're not going away, because I don't believe an ad on the top or on the side should be an issue to anyone. Seriously.

    The pop-under I can see the problem and I dumped it, the other stuff I don't.

    Ok everyone kinda understand my position?

    I'm also heavily leaning towards showing the pop-under thing to people who aren't donators or premium members. So if you're either of those people you won't ever see it. If you aren't, you will. Seems pretty fair to me. But we'll see I haven't decided.

    Everyone is telling me all kinds of weird shit they're getting on the site now and I don't believe that two banners (we've always had advertising on the site BTW) from a huge company would be causing so many problems to people's computers. I mean advertising on the internet isn't a new thing, that's how most people survive on the net. It's not like I'm using a company and programs that no one on the net uses, I'm doing what ALL site owners do to offset their costs. In fact I'm doing less than I should, because I am trying not to make it a burden.

    You go to sites all the time that use this company that I use to serve ads, I'm sure you've been to a bunch today and just don't realize it.

    I just wish you guys wouldn't complain so much. I can't help that this site is 10x the size of the other VH sites, and that the economy sucks right now. This is what I have to do for now. Either you understand it, and accept it, or you don't you won't and you'll leave. I don't want anyone to leave, but the reality is this what the site will be for the forseeable future. You need to make the decision for yourselves whether ads at the top and sides (like we've always had) and a possible pop-under for those that aren't premium members and donors will be an issue for you.

    I've had offers to take over the payment of the site while I run it, and that's not something I want to do. I started this site, I want complete control, that's just the way I am about it. It's my baby.

    So those are my thoughts right now. I'm not trying to be angry about it, I just wish some of you would realize the situation and just cope with it. And I don't want or need donations, I need the advertising on here. It will pay the bill...I think. So far actually it's not if I lose the pop-unders, but I am willing to do that for people who have financially contributed money to the site.

    None of you are getting pop-ups you're getting pop-unders.

    Personally I haven't had a problem with this at all and I hope it helps Brett financially pay for the site.

    This might help some of you http://usa.kaspersky.com/products_se...rsky&HBX_OU=50

    I don't mind the pop-unders, I (like other users) was just concerned they were being generated by mal-ware installed on my computer and triggered by certain sites. I did notice them only appearing when I visited this site so now that I have confirmation they are purposely generated from here they don't concern me all that much. You get what you pay for.

    one of these pop ups sent my anti virus into a fit yesterday.

    blocked all kinds of badies and had pages open I could not close... had to re-boot and do a full scan to be safe.
