prospie, is it pop-ups or pop-unders coming from the bottom of the browser?

May 10, 2012

Nope. Mac user if it helps in any way.

The HBS guys have MAD SWAGGER. They frequently wear their class jackets to boston bars, strutting and acting like they own the joint. They just ooze success, confidence, swagger, basically attributes of alpha males.

I have on my phone. Annoying.

May 10, 2012

I'm on a iPad right now, and I got a popup when I logged in

May 10, 2012

I received a popup as well...i guess it would be classified as pop-under, same annoying shit though.

Phone & pc

May 10, 2012

No pop-ups at work or at home.

May 10, 2012

Pop-unders. Kind of a drag because it blocks your bottom bar including the clock (which is what I guess it's supposed to do because it requires your attention to fix it).

May 10, 2012

No pop-anythings here. Running Chrome w/ AdBlock on a Mac.

I got a pop up when i clicked on this post from the forum topics on the right. Never gotten a pop up other than now. It was for Trader X or something.

May 10, 2012

What browser are you using? I've noticed Firefox has the same popup on a lot of sites.

May 10, 2012

I got them on firefox but not on chrome.
Trader X and a torrent download kind of thing.

May 10, 2012

Actually I did see that Trader X thing too. Forgot about that.

May 10, 2012

I got the same pop up recently a few times but closed out and didnt pay attention to what it was.

May 10, 2012

On my end, it was happening all last night but not anymore.

May 10, 2012

Got a pop up last night, and again this morning.

May 10, 2012

i got popups in the past few days... specifically, i think it was triggered when i clicked on the "followers" icon. i don't notice it happening today.

Just got a popup for Trader XP when clicking on a thread from the "Forum Topics" list on the right side, using Chrome on a PC.

May 10, 2012

Got the same pop-up as before. Last time it was on a PC using Chrome from work, this time from a Mac using Chrome. I clicked on a post last time and on my messages this time.

What's the deal with these things? I don't know much about computer pop-ups and whatnot, is this advertiser related, spam related, or WSO related?

Hey guys, this is an ad format we decided to give a try since we thought it would be less intrusive. Are the pop-ups opening in new windows for you or sliding up from the bottom of your browsers?

May 11, 2012

My pop-ups are all in new windows

May 11, 2012

They're in new windows, or if I'm on my iPhone then they open up in new tabs which is especially annoying.

May 11, 2012

New windows on both PC and Mac.

May 11, 2012

New windows on my iPad

May 11, 2012

Got popup all over the place. Even after I install Adblock Plus, it still doesn't help.

May 11, 2012

Not gonna lie, I like banner ad's better.

May 12, 2012

I like no ads better. I'll make up the ad revenue difference if you want.

May 12, 2012

I never had this happen as I got the AdBlock Plus extension (free) for Firefox and it has worked wonders for me. All the shows and movies I watch are hosted online on sites bombarded with all kinds of crazy ads and it has made a huge difference. I accidentally uninstalled it the other day and only noticed when I wanted to catch the latest episodes of The Office.

I know the intended purpose of these is to bring extra revenue so I apologize if I shouldn't have brought that up Patrick.

May 14, 2012

guys, this will be gone by tomorrow. Sorry, I did not realize they were pop-ups into new windows which is SUPER annoying.

Apologies.

May 14, 2012

I click on all of them, repeatedly. Just a way to give back to Patrick.

May 14, 2012

Patrick found out he has a kid in Thailand. Please click the ads, the money goes straight to child support.

I am having this issue too but I figured out that if you hover your mouse over it again they should do away.
