    Sorry if this is the wrong place, please move if it is. How do you stop the damm Silverado ad from popping up. I click the x but the thing keeps coming back after I read any posts. I am really getting fed up here.

    Make sure of two things: you are logged-in (check the top-right corner of each page you are on for the "Welcome, username." message), and that your browser has cookies enabled. If you are not logged-in, the board thinks you are a new visitor every time you move forward (or back) to another page; if you do not have cookies enabled, the board cannot track you from page-to-page and the same thing happens. Either way, you will get the ad over and over again. Otherwise, you shouldn't see it more than 2 or 3 total times per visit/day.

    Adblocker. Or the people running this place could see how many people it pushes away and do away with it. Do we really need to be like a porn site from the 90's???

    This. Get rid of it please mods/site owner!

    ETA: Just installed the Adblocker in Firefox. Seems to work ok. Still,
    get rid of the d@#m pop up. No other forum I hang out on has any.

    Why don't you put your attitude in check and take OUT your wallet.

    Paying members don't have pop-ups to contend with.

    Running this place costs money and yet the freeloaders always have a gripe.

    Simple, I think if buy one, that will stop it. Come on, blow that dust out of your wallet...

  9. Today I haven't seen even one popup.:whistling:

    Yesterday something must have gone wrong, because I saw a popup on each and every screen.:steamed:

    I don't mind the Ruger and Cheaper Than Dirt popups as much as the usual propaganda from Obama's Government Motors; their repeated presence steels my resolve to oppose them at every opportunity, until they go bankrupt as they deserve.:deadhorse:

    Normally I see only two popups per day, and it's not a problem to click twice.:cool:

    When you guys start paying the bills I'm sure Eric will be more than happy to let you pick the ads.

    From another thread about the same subject.

    It could be for a price.....

    You see it costs money to run the site. Money from paying members, and money from the fund-raisers to raise the dough it cost to keep the lights on.

    As it stands now you have three options.

    1. Pack up and leave.
    2. Live with the minor inconvenience of ads that helps keep the forum running.
    3. Become a paying member. As paid members don't see the pop up.

    As a bonus option. I suppose you could run a pop-up blocker.

    The Silverado add never bothered me and I could just click to turn it off and go on. But in the last few days it hangs up my computer for several minutes every time it pops up- when the add pops up something called "flowplay" player also pops up and hangs my computer. I'm using Firefox 12.0

    I donated and still get the Silverado popup all day long...something is amiss! I'm logged in and box checked, cookies enabled.

    Also, I don't like Chevy Trucks :tongueout:
  15. I can't take out my wallet, so I just keep my mouth shut. After I finish my degree, I'll gladly bust out my checkbook. This place is a great resource.

    Now the Chevy popup ads don't have any way of turning them off? Just this morning, the popups came up a few times, but there was no "x" to click to shut them off. Do they stop coming up after a certain amount of times or something? (because it is not on my screen right now...)

    The close button is blocked on the right hand side.

    Also noticed that the banner is much larger now. :dunno:

    Any other site that I have been on if people start talking about something like this a lot it gets changed. Just sayin.

    its changing me forever. everytime i see a chevy truck, it reminds me of this GT ad and reinforces why i will not buy one.

    i understand the need for advertising, but its got to be having a negative effect for chevy trucks. or maybe its just me?

    now where is my wallet to upgrade my membership.
