Thread: Pop-Up Ads Now?

    Pop-Up Ads Now?

    I usually browse INGO without logging in. I don't post often, so if I need to post, I just log in at that time. Over the last couple of days of my usual browsing, I've noticed new pop-up ads in nearly every thread. The menus don't have it, but each page of posts does. And WOW is it annoying. It seems to be a video ad embedded in the first and/or last post, but then it pops out and follows your scrolling down on the bottom right of the screen. It can be easily x'ed closed, but then on the next page, it's back again.

    I understand that INGO needs advertisements to exist, and that logging in will get rid of most of them. But for those that use the site without logging in, be they existing members, or non members that get directed to this site (like through a search result), the new pop-up ads are a huge turn-off. The large picture ads that were added to the first post on each page were bad enough, but the invasive video ads are a whole new level.

    If you realize that logging in makes the ads go away, then why not just log in and check the box that says, "keep me logged in?"

    Seems like a pretty simple fix.
    Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong,
    seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
    Once in a while you get shown the light
    in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    I'm sometimes on shared computers, would need to logout each time.


    Here's what your post would look like to a visitor to INGO; is this really putting the best foot forward and giving a positive impression to a non member?



    It just looks trashy (like most other forums). INGO used to be better than that.

    First of all running a test.

    Second that ad was not supposed to show to members and that will be fixed by tomorrow. Eventually no ads in posts will ever show to members so be patient as I fix things. Better or not as you may say, you have no clue what it's like for forums to survive now, not to mention gun forums.

    Stay tuned I will have it all fixed by tomorrow

    Thanks for the heads up and patience on it. Loads of test going on here.

    Out of the blue I'm now getting the ads. Fine this morning. Started about an hour ago. Never had them before
