POP UPS!!!

Postby Dog » Sat Aug 02, 2003 5:14 pm

The VERY best way to drive people from a site is those damn annoying popups. Every time I click on a link here now I get them. They SUCK. Are they here to stay? If so I am outta here.

The only popup I get is when I first come to the site and sometimes even that one doesn't come up. Have you got another window open that could be causing it?

Not trying to split hairs but I'd be curious to know who of you is actually getting popUPS at the Cafe. Like Madison said, we exclusively serve ONE popunder per user visit, and I really don't think it's too much to endure. As far as I know, those of you using an AOL browser might see that one as a popUP due to bugs in the browser itself (sorry for that, but it's really not our fault). If your experiences are any different than what I'm describing here, I'd be glad to know!

Try to get Norton Internet Security. You get a firewall, pop-up killer and anti-virus. Only $30, well worth the money. ;-D

To visit this site, I'll endure popups (I only get one when I initially get here anyway), but I don't think it's too much to deal with considering it's a great FREE site! ;-D

I think the greatest way to drive ppl from a site is to change it from free to pay...keep the caf free ;-)

For mac users, try Camino (http://www.mozilla.org/projects/camino/) or Safari. Since switching, I never see PopUps. Cruising the internet has become almost enjoyable... :-)
