No pop-ups for me yet. I'm assuming you're at work on IE?

BrettW
12-22-2007, 11:56 PM
yep, ie6, i cant turn on the popup blocker because i can enable/disable it but i dont have enough access to add/remove sites so it would cause issues all day

BrettW
12-23-2007, 04:22 PM
yea not me either, because the PC im on now @ work can handle firefox my other pc has too little ram so if i use firefox for my personal browsing it freezes the PC, where this one has more ram so it can handle it

but ill be back on that pc on thursday so hopefully ill be able to provide a screenshot then,

Matt
12-23-2007, 04:31 PM
I haven't seen any pop ups using IE yet.

Lee

If you can get a screen shot, I will get it fixed. Sorry for the frustration.

BrettW
12-23-2007, 04:37 PM
if it happens again i will, im starting to think i may just be tripping but 90% of the time im on FF with adblock, it just happens @ work on my primary computer im on IE6 with no popup protection the only sites i had open was my timesheet, my schedual, bankofamerica.com (which i know it didnt come from as it was just the homepage), and sprintusers which i was navigating, and i kept getting this same popup asking me to take a survey (it wasnt one of thoes professional survey popups, just one of an image you click that re-directs you to a spam site to signup)

No pop ups for mr

hope i didnt just jinx myself

BrettW
12-23-2007, 07:02 PM
yea the fact that no one else is getting it, i think it may of either been A) me tripping or B) delayed popups from reading news articles from news.google.com and fark.com which i had done about 10minutes earlier or C) it really did happen and only to me, im learning towards a or b unless someone else sees the popup too

I get that HP full screen ad everytime I use SU at work on IE
again im referring to the popup, the fullscreen ad is more annoying regardless i havent gotten the popup since i got it 3 times the other day, but then again im on my alternate work pc using firefox + no script + firefox + filterset g + fasterfox :-)

BrettW
12-23-2007, 08:27 PM
from what i saw there is 3 variants of the HP ad, if theres another ad now geeze thats getting excessive, i may have to retire from SU and pickup my membership over at ppcgeeks or xda-developers

Lee
12-26-2007, 08:27 PM
Are you still seeing the HP ads?

BrettW
12-26-2007, 10:28 PM

Using Firefox at home I get no ads or pop-ups ever. :headbang2

Using IE at work (during break) I get the full page pop ups that take awhile to load and then at the bottom you get a countdown (15, 14, 13, etc) that tells you how much longer the ad will display. You can then click it to get rid of it.

The pop ups don't happen right away, but usually by the time I click on the 3rd thread, I will see them.

Still getting that freaking HP full page ad. There's a RadioShack one too. Getting really fed up. I need to use IE7 for work. Apparently Lee and the powers that be just don't care. Too bad. I don't mind the other ads(never get any popups) and I know that ads help support the site, but if I have to stop viewing the site while I work and exclusively with Firefox otherwise (which blocks EVERY single ad) so be it. I refuse to have full page ads forced down my throat any longer.

Black Ice
01-03-2008, 05:02 PM
No need of taking screen shots of the ads, i know u have to be aware of what is running on the site, including them ads, im getting both again now!

I'm also noticing the full-screen ads.

penuch
01-04-2008, 06:27 PM
Of course they are fully aware of the ads. Maybe not the mods, but certain other people with more power. Im not really complaining cause he deserves to make his money but that still doesn't make the whole full page ad less annoying.

Matt
01-04-2008, 07:04 PM
I am only aware of them because I am tired of seeing them. I understand ad revenue, but sheesh.

Spruce da Bruce
01-04-2008, 07:06 PM
Yes he deserves to make his money, but pissing off his users with obnoxious full page ads is only going to hurt his bottom line in the long run-especially if it forces everyone to either go to other sites or use FireFox, because then NONE of the ads he runs will be seen. I am just disappointed in his lack of communication about the issue.

My work laptop is set somehow so I see NO :clap: ads on SU when I use it to read the forum at home or lunch times. It has IE6 but it is so slow - it would be impossible to read the forum if I had to wait for ads to load.

IE7 on my personal computer, I get the annoying :mad: HP ad with the counter, even though I have popups blocked. I can read SU really fast using open in new tab except when that ad pops up. I have not figured how to reset my IE7 settings to block the popups on SU.

I have my IE7 set to block pop ups and it does, but those stupid full page ads get through anyway. Click on Tools and scroll down to Pop-up Blocker to configure the settings.

Well Lee has been ignoring this thread so I guess we are stuck with them. I'm going to have to go to Firefox which blocks ALL the ads on this site. I hate to do that because the banner ads and such don't bother me and I know they help support the site, but I refuse to put up with the full page garbage any longer. I'm disappointed that Lee refuses to address the issue, but apparently he wants them to stay, and he's the boss.

I've been having these full page ads for what must be months...

Not sure it means much, but it's definitely caused me to browse other sites instead... gotta keep that in mind guys.

I'd rather have a pop-up than a full-screen takeover

BrettW
01-07-2008, 11:08 PM
im starting to agree with others which is lee just doesnt care, this sucks because this is what i do in between calls when im bored at work, i guess i have to find another outlet, fark and ppcgeeks and hofo and xda-devs will have to work, it just seems this site is much more lifely then ppcgeeks/hofo/xda-devs but im slowly being left with no choice.... and firefox isnt an option these machines have 512mb of ram, which firefox is a bit of a ram hog if you have about 3-4 open windows in it, it sure uses alot more then ie6 does with this same in this situation, at home its not a problem but here @ work it just cannot be done.

Lee
01-08-2008, 09:16 AM
I am not ignoring the thread and have been out of pocket for the holidays. I have once again done some homework with the ad networks and blocked the HP full page ads. Let me know if they are gone and any others you see. I will be doing my best to track them down and get rid of them.

EDIT: give the ad network a few hours to remove the ad from the rotation.

fatboy
01-08-2008, 09:23 AM
yanno im not a Lee fanboy by any means but yanno the guy does have a life and it takes times to adjust stuff on the site. All them cool PDAs you have Brett and you cant view the site without ads for whilst it gets worked out?

I need to know what ads you are seeing in order to remove them.
If you have to remove them one at a time, then I'm afraid it's a losing battle. I just got another full page one at work...something called Workapolis or something like that. You remove one ad and another takes it's place.

Lee
01-09-2008, 09:20 AM
No, it isn't a losing battle and I will continue doing it until the problem is solved.

Great, due to the weird design of the popup it didn't help me though. :(

I need someone to click on the popup when they see it and try to follow the link as it opens in the window. I am looking for the URL it points you too before it hits Verizon's site.

Quill
01-17-2008, 09:03 PM
It goes through ads.doubleclick.net Lee. Hope that helps.

I think he might need the whole URL since it probably has some sort of ID in it. I'm surprised I haven't gotten it again.

There was nothing else behind the URL you posted after you clicked on the ad? If that's the case then that is super odd. :confused:

Do I stutter? Yes, that was the URL that came up before going to the verizon b2b site. I stared at it for a good five seconds.

I just got it again. The ad blockers don't catch it because it's Adobe Flash based ad. After about 10 seconds it disappears.

Got the same pop-up just now, but it ran through a series of at least 5 or 6 (more?) url's before ending up at: http://b2b.vzw.com/promotions/um150.html

They displayed too quick to make a mental note of what they were.

I just clicked to get into a thread, and instead of the thread, I got a full page "Congratulations, you are the lucky visitor" page. It didn't have a timer like the old ads, but after about 10 seconds, it went away and loaded the thread I clicked on. Anyone else see this, or is it just me??

It is absolutely the most ridiculous thing I have seen, a SPRINT user site advertising Verizon on not only the sidebar, but now with popups.

Site owner, seriously, I understand advertising money is what drives this site, but you need to draw the line somewhere. ENOUGH with the Verizon ads, please.

**EDIT**
Now I'm getting AUDIO ads too??? :laughing: :td:

I just clicked on one of the threads and some woman's voice interjects "Congratulations! You have Won..." I stopped it at that point.

I just got the talking ipod one just now in my control panel. I didn't see what banner it was coming from though so I couldn't do a screen shot. I also had the floating VZW popup go through my screen again.

These things aren't really bothering me, I'm just keeping you guys updated since this looks as if you're working on these particular ones.

I also just got the talking one; not sure what it was as I quickly closed the browser (I'm at the office), but it was loud and very annoying. To be honest, I'd rather deal with the silent Verizon ad than this obnoxious talking one. :mad: I absolutely hate websites with any type of audio/sound effects turned on by default.

Well, looks like the Verizon pop-up is still here; I just got it again a few minutes ago.

Verizon add is still here. Almost every time I go to the top of the page, there is is, waiting for me :mad:

And the iPod one is at the bottom for me too. That is almost as bad as the smiley going "OMG!! NO WAY!!!!!!!!!"

Working on this now...sorry guys...I can't stand those talking ads either.

EDIT: UGh, sorry guys. I had been searching for ipod but these ads were labeled NANO. I have found them and killed them. They should be gone in a few hours. :bang:

That Verizon add is at the top of EVER page when I go to the top. And usually when I click the "X" it makes that add white and it doesn't go away and I have to refresh the page like 3 times to get the page to show up without the ad.

For me, the VZW popup's seem to vary on when I'll get them. It's completely random. I didn't get any in 2 days and yeterday I got 5 of the Verizon ones. I haven't heard the talking iPod ad since they last time I mentioned that one.

I have a theory on the VZW popup. I have a feeling that there's a cookie that might be causing the floater to keep reappearing. I might try clearing my cookie cache and see if that does the trick on my end.

I only saw it once yesterday. HOWEVER, that can be deceiving, because the only time I will see it is during the day, when I visit the site from work, because at work, I don't have an ad-blocker running(I do have one running, at home). Since I'm at work, I also don't visit the site all that much(about once or twice a day, at most). So keep that in mind, when considering how often I am seeing it.

The network told me the delivery per user should be capped at 1 per day. I am hoping this means they have their part working.

Here is a new one. Pops up, covers part of the screen, and if you accidently moust over it, it expands, covering more of the screen and plays some annoying voice stuff.

For Nevada tourism.

Check out my browser history, as other are reporting, the 2 sites under current site always show while I'm on SU and the back button on the browser does not work.

When you highlight the Page back button, it shows the last page as either ww w.toontowncentral.com/forums/........ or ww w.h4ck3rz.com/.......And if you click on the page back button, it doesn't go back......you have to click on it twice really fast in order for it to work. I thought it was just my computer, so I formatted my hard drive and did a fresh install of windows, but it was still happening. Then I noticed it was only doing it with Sprintusers.com, so I looked in here, and sure enough, everyone else is having the same problem.

EDIT: The screenshot that Johnny Hotsauce posted at the top of the page shows the full links to the sites that are showing up in the history.

Lee, check out my screenshot a couple post up, it shows what bcaroo is describing.

I'm having the same problem as well, if I hit the back button on my browser while on SU, it won't go backward and just keeps me on the current page. If I drop the browser history tab down, it will show the toontowncentral and hackers.net as the last 2 sites visited.

Here is the whois for the hackers.net net that stays in my browser history in case you need it.

My server guy has requested that one of you send me the source for a page where your back button won't work. "view source (the doc will open) -> File -> Save". You can upload it as an attachment on the forum I think.

Ahh...figured it out. Here is the attachment. If you scroll all the way towards the bottom, you will see the h4ck3rz link in there.


EDIT: It won't let me attach it. Says the file is too big. Is there anything I can cut out, or do you need the whole file?

some18mybrain

Oh my........that was a lot of work. You have guts - I won't touch my Windows setup unless I am positive I really really have to do it - then I cringe all the way while I do it.

My "Back" button always used to work until yesterday night - now I seem to always get that toontown and the h4ckrz in between the actual last SU page. This is the only site this is happening on.

I am using IE7
