No pressure.

Every time you get a popup, try to break the habit of closing it instantaneously. Hit PrtScn, open Paint, and go to Edit > Paste. Save the picture as anything except for a BMP because that file size is too big. Then upload to Photobucket and post just a link here. If too many people post pictures, the thread would get too big. Plus, I don't want to look at more popups. I want to see if there'* an underlying theme to these that ties them to the photo ads that pop up. PTD may not know it, but some ads may cause popups. I doubt it since, you know, it'* Google, but you never know.

The Commendable Gentleman has an idea! Please, please let me add a couple links to the top. One will be a Donate link and the other an Advertise link. I'll make some pages, all the proper forms, application.php files, and whatnot. Google isn't needed if we can get people to advertise and pay more. You can do a pay-per-click system.

The benefit of members of BC advertising are too many to name without boring you even more. Mainly, it'* that we trust each other and are more likely to use each others' services than those of some random person with his own side business. E.g., floz.

It'* odd you guys are seeing popups. I've been using my school computers all day (I.E. 6, no popup blocker), and I even tried using internet explorer on my computer... (gah, the horror...). No popups or popunders...

I frequent this site, and I've only had three popups. Probably not too bad. Keep trying.

This would actually be helpful. The ads are absolutely not supposed to be doing popups, if something is amiss as radomir suggests, it would be helpful to see what is happening. I haven't seen any myself.

I have yet to get a pop up either. I have a pop up blocker in my browser, but it tells me when it blocks them. It has remained silent whenever surfing BC.

Firefox? I have that too, and mine has never blocked the BC ads.

you too Paul? Shame on you
No shame on me. I don't get any pop ups and I don't visit bad sites. The ads I speak of are at the bottom of forum threads........so I suppose I'm a little off topic.
