Only just notice it but I am getting pop ups on the Forums page for some sort of Internet competition. Bearing in mind I am on DII is anyone else getting this?

You certainly shouldn't be - can you identify any particular ad that is doing it and we will terminate it with extreme prejudice

This the sort of thing you mean.....



maybe not a 'po-up' as such, but the only competition type thing that keeps proffering itself in my direction on the main forum board.

There's usually a couple of them lurking.

Unfortunately without advertising this site would fold, so it's a necessary evil. My aim is to place it, but without interfering with site use, and I don't think those ads do. In fact those 3 ads on the forum index have been there for years now, but just not as obvious as that.

I'll take opinions of course, but I don't see those ads as causing any usability problems and there is a solid argument that if you don't like them, don't click on them.

Actual pop-ups would be a different matter. They are bloody annoying, as are those hyperlink words that have ads in, or advert posts in the middle of threads as some sites do. Therefore we don't do that. I hope we've got the balance right.
