Pop-up Ad's

I know about the Ad's at the bottom, but are we supposed to be getting pop up's too?

I thought maybe it was spyware but scanned my home computer and came up dry, now my work cpu is doing it too. FF is blocking them, but just curious.

Thought i noticed it too the other day. Looked like an ad would want to pop up and then would get shut down right away. Just a quick glitch I would see.

Where I have definitely noticed it, is in looking at some people's for sale ads. I get the Firefox has blocked another window from opening thing.

Thats pretty much a kick in the nuts to myself, Daryl and all the moderators here. If you had any idea the amount of work put into this site, along with the hundreds upon hundreds of hours of programming and maintenance associated with gl4x4.

I'm guessing you will not find another website of this size, hell even with 200,000 posts or more that do not have advertisements on them. It doesn't happen, and the reason is NOBODY wants to lose money running a website. I do not need to rely on Gl4x4 for my income, but I do want to cover close to , if not all of the almost $880 (on average) in expenses per month to keep this site up.

Take that bit of information, then remember that the ads are HIDDEN and placed in the bottom of the webpage in order to get a page view count. The ads have been down there for 12 days, and the total income is now $1.47. Hopefully they send an armed guard with the check at the end of the month so nobody steals it from my mailbox.

FYI, as some know, this isn't the only forum I own. I have others, and the others have ads because when I purchased them they were already setup like that. Comparing those websites incomes and the traffic here, it is very safe to say that this website would bring in some major $$$ with ads on the top of the page. There is a reason that "big boards" sell for $50,000 - $100,000 on a regular basis, because the page views associated with them are an advertisers dream. But instead of putting up advertisements, I'm keeping this website ad free for members because I enjoy this site, and I HATE ads. I'm weighing the potential profit vs the annoyance. If you were to logout, you will see gl4x4 has ads, and that is what covers the costs to run the website. Some months I make money, some months I lose money, but its pretty much a wash.

I'm extremely sorry to hear that this website is "horrible" because of a pop up ad that appears to be active even though my contracts with both ad houses on the bottom state no pop-ups are allowed to appear. This has been taken care of, and hopefully you can live 18 more days with two small ads appearing below ANY relevant information that this website delivers to you.

Thanks.

Holy fukc , I only mentioned it because I knew there weren't supposed to be any. I wasn't complaining, and I never said it was horrible. The pop up got through my blocker at home (work caught it)

The only reason I even mentioned it is because I pay $12 not to see ads. You explained the ones at the bottom so you can monitor traffic (I don't see them anyway) but the pop-ups were not mentioned so I thought I would bring it up as those ARE fucking annoying.

Guess I won't try to bring anything else up

I did read that and honestly I did find it funny because if you hadn't read the other posts in the comments section regarding the ads that is exactly what you would think.

However that last part he sounded pissed that the pop-ups were even brought up, which I only did because that didn't sound like something he would want.

Kelly,
I appologize. I was saying it in humor. You of all people are very attentive to layout and the lack of advertising. I regret that I didn't make the fact i was joking clear. As for everyone that runs the site, they all do a great job, thus the expotential growth over the years.

I'd say that most here is attributed to not understanding some replies, or taking them the wrong way. You've posted here since day one, and sometimes I miss-read you. It sometimes frustrates me when people talk bad about this website, especially because of how much work people do here.

jeepfreak, that was not addressed to you, and I appreciate you letting me know that popups were appearing. That will not fly here at all.

Thanks.

Understood Kelly. I should have added a teehee or something so you would have known it was a joke. I have commented on how good the site runs and the work that is appreciated keeping it going before. Hopefully no one got too worked up over my mistake.
