First off I understand why sidekickbob closed the original thread. I do encourage him to do the same here after answering these simple questions.
1) Why does the site go with out popups for such a long time and then every second click there is a popup (the last week and a half that I have noticed no popups and then wham! In full force.)?
2) Why are the popups ALL geared to PORN? Example: this week has been CUNT WARS. I have a family as allot do and that is not appropriate, Young kids do not need to see that flashed upon a screen.
3)What is stopping the site from posting ads on top of pages or in vertical banners? Possibly by using google ad sense, or using a low profile, low CPU cryptominer? I personally think that if ETTV would poll members they would prefer ads on splash pages or an non-invasive crytominer utilizing almost no cpu power over having to close a window every 2 or so clicks. Magically though on the forum side there is no popups? Why is that???
I only ask these questions and toss out the possible alternatives as I do have young kids and I don't need them seeing these porn popups. Yes I try to be careful around my kids when surfing/ downloading, but currently this site does make it hard to do this with all the CUNT WARS popups. On the flip side I am also logged into the site 24/ 7 like allot of the members so an non-invasive, low cpu cryptominer might be a win.
I understand and appreciate that there are costs associated with running any site, I went through it back in the Sat days, but despite the higher revenue from the porn ads there should be a happy medium to satisfy most members, but no one will ever know if a poll is not done.
BTW every month to generate revenue you could hold an auction, for a higher end hdmi video card or andriod box, etc.. We used to use a 52 card deck, but it can be done many different ways. It always generated revenue, and got the sites community involved. Turned out to be a win win. I would be happy to help if needed, used to do it on a few sat sites way back in the day.
Either way, sidekickbob, if you feel the need to close/ delete this post I hope that you may provide some answers to my questions above in the short term, or if you are inclined (as I hope you are) add a poll to this thread and see what the community feels, it may very well surprise you, and in the end provide a continuous revenue stream month after month to help keep the site alive.
thanks for your feedback
as for the frequency of ads it is set to be around 3 pops every hour nothing more
if you saying you getting more could you help us with a screenshot video of the same..so we can forward it to ad provider because they are insisting it is set to be not more than 3 pop ups every hour
as for adult ads..we have just informed the ad provider to remove such ads as we don't usually keep adult ads
banner ads from google cant be used as they do not support torrents sites,and it is not magically that no ads in forum,we set it that way so that you can post here your issues without hassles to enable us to find a solution for any when arises
we will take a look at the mining solution if it wont hamper users experience in the site we can use it..
once again thanks for your valuable feedback
I will take some screen shots which will show the time on the task bar. Would you prefer I post them here or send them by pm, or just provide links from a storage site?
Well I missed the first popup screen but here are the 2 following
Notice the timestamp on the taskbar also the content. and for some reason this morning, at least so far, I have only gotten the 3. But I will keep an eye on it and will post the links to more screens.
thanks for the screens
the ads are disabled for now since it is weekend and no response from ad provider,we have disabled the ads until they fix it
thanks for the followup screens
they dont give too sh1ts it's all about the $ here
plz advise if you still getting adult ads now and if popups are still too many
I just had 3 in a row, every second click, I had my pop blocker on which was stopping them but turned it off before the last one. At the very least I am happy it doesn't say CUNT WARS in the middle of the screen, but you judge, still anime, still highly suggestive content.
My pop blocker catches allot but the cunt wars was still being displayed, this image (3rd of 3 in a row) was only visible with my blocker off. As all pop blockers it is hit and miss. But I noticed your response before the last one came up, so turned it off to see what was being blocked. I am sure that even though I just went through 3 there is more to come in this hour... I'll keep you posted!
Thnks again for looking into this matter for me. I really appreciate it.
Here are the first 2 of the latest 3 pops.
3rd pop was same caliber as the 2nd pop
Gotta admit, if I gotta see pops, even though I don't mind porn for me personally, just the kidlets always hovering around, the first one is great! the 2nd goes back to suggestive, in the anime/ porn area, but still not as bad as when I first created this thread. I screwed up on the 3rd C&P but you get the idea.
Let me know if you want me to keep an eye on the progression of the pops.
United States of America
ok good was left open its not the pop ups per say but the intrusive ones i keep getting the you have been infected.. the one that locks your explorer firefox whatever up ....
you have to end task and redo when it hits if you would like the link to it ill post it as soon as i get it again ...
logged in i dont get any ....... :)
nice to be back ...
Yeah I also do not like getting popups that say "your computer is locked call our 1800 number to unlock it" Not cool for members who do not know the difference and actually call.
You should keep tabs on what pop ups you allow. Not cool.
What is hte deal now that every click to scroll to next page of Torrents results in a popup before you have to click again?
This is pretty obnoxious.
sorry about that it was add provider fixed now please let us know if it keeps happening
Still happening, every second click of anything gives you a popup.
are you getting 1 pop out?
its set to 1 pop out ever hour
I am getting a pop up every second click of the mouse.
You literally can't navigate the site or do anything without popups.
I've resolved it by entering the offending domain into Hosts file and adding it to ABP.
I don't mind the odd popup and I realise you have to recoup costs, but the rampant behaviour recently is too much.
My AV is blocking them before they get a chance to load a tab, scam site or redirect site!!...
3 times so far and I've only been on for a few mins..
