Re: My thread was locked about the pop ups

I don't get popups on two of my computers but I do (every time...even when I'm logged in) on the third. I'm pretty sure it's DS though because I don't have any problems with any other sites.

As for why the post was locked, I saw it the day it was posted and there were two or three threads started within just a few minutes of each other that were basically identical. So when I saw that two of them were locked with a redirect to the other one, I figured the mods/admins just didn't want to be saying the same thing three times. I clicked on the link that day and it worked. In the thread you were redirected to, Lee explained that if you come to DS without being logged in, you see a lot more ads (including some popunders) and a message that says something along the lines of "Register as a member and see fewer ads". He said that he did that in order to minimize the number of ads that members see while still maximizing the number of "views" for the advertisers. I haven't tried to go back to that thread since then so I have no idea why it would have been moved or deleted. Hope this helps...

Re: My thread was locked about the pop ups



Just wanted to let the powers that be know that I am looking for the answers too. I don't have a problem with pop-ups, but have another un-resolved issue in another thread......

Re: My thread was locked about the pop ups

Yea, I'm always logged in and come straight to the forums, and I still get pop ups.

When I started my "first" thread on the subject, it was after I read the only other one, started 2 days earlier than when I started mine, and Lee locked that one, and directed us to a "dead" link, I started my own. I don't see several threads started on it at the same time, just that one from 2 days before..

and, it isn't very hard for Lee to just TELL me what is going on, but instead, he sends everyone to a dead link, and then when I even took it off board and PM'd for answers, the only response was "oh, my bad" with no answers. I didn't see the other thread, so I had no idea what was going on until you just said, but that still doesn't seem plausible, because I've been a registered member of DS for almost 2 years, and I haven't ever gotten treated this way, gotten pop ups, or had any problems with ds at all. I am always logged in, and I come straight to the forums, so that doesn't seem to be a solution for me....

and, I see he answered in a post BELOW, but has yet to actually answer me...or us, because I know there are more people having this problem. A lot of people who have been here for a LONG time, too...

Re: My thread was locked about the pop ups

I'm new here and have a great popup blocker but I still got one with Anna Kornikova (sp?) with he butt in the air and in a bikini. It would be great if popups like this don't show on a parenting board. I was logged in at the time. I'm sure the moderators will take care of it as soon as they can. This is a big board!

As I have said before, these ads are only shown to guests and I will work to get these undesirable ads removed. In order to do that I need you guys to take screenshots of these ads so I can report them. Thanks!

I have been a member (not a guest) for years now but I still get these pop ups. I will get a screen shot next time I see one.
Being a guest is not the problem though, it is members that are seeing them!

Re: My thread was locked about the pop ups

I have pop up blockers on my computer and this is the ONLY site I go to that I get bombarded with them and it is getting annoying. Every other site I get a mini screen that comes up letting me know that all the pop ups have been blocked for my safety. Ive been finding myself coming here less and less.
