So, how many of you have been the 10,000,000th person to visit this site :rolleyes:

I've seen three pop-ups today alone. Maybe TF should have another talk with our beloved host, TeleFragged.

Is anyone else seeing these or is it just me!??!?

They are tolerable. There is always one or two, but once you are in the forum, it's o.k.

That exact pop-up just appeared while I was reading gonzo's post - how eerie!

I saw that popup... did anyone dial the number? :lol:

So... Does that mean we all clicked the site at the same moment??? :eek:

So yes, I got them as well, though they don't appear so often. But I don't get how they can believe people will actually win something because they are the 10 000 000 th, while people obviously know they aren't :lol:

I got a new one, different from the first... Are they really coming back??? Anything from telefragged on this? I wish we won't have to deal with them once again :(

I got the 10Kth winner one also....hey, I feel lied to!! Can we sue over this? ;)

And I didn't go to the main site, just the forum, and straight here to complain. :D

I got one with an awkward number: 2,325,143,123 (something like that). They're getting desperate! hehe...

I just was selected to take a 5 question survey and get a 115$ package for it or something like that.

This sucks!

I hope we get porn popups!!! Just kidding ;)

I don't mind the popups now, I just got one that'll surely help me find my past classmates. Wow! These are great /tongue in cheek

You bet :p

Maybe this is a consequense of custom avatars... :satan: Telefragged is getting back at us for using their bandwith... :crazyeye:

We can always buy more bandwith if we just get visa cards, platinum in fact. Just got an advertisement for those too.

This is getting a little odd.

Now if they offer some ping pong paddles I won't be so mad.

:D

I'll contact Telefragged about that. I also saw 1 or 2 popups on the forum...

Good thinking TF!!! BTW, did you know Bonds' number isn't 004??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

It's good to hear you all are getting popups (well, in a way), since it means my anti-popup software must be doing its job (I have not seen a popup) :). (I still use the 3 yr old AtGuard 3.22 program).

I thnik I got a popup a while back don't remember but I did get redirected to that vacation site......

I just got the first pop-up I've seen on the forums. I bypass the main page and go directly to the forums from work (shhh - don't tell my boss :satan: ). I've never seen the popups here before, just on the main page.

Crap! I just got another one when I submitted this post! :aargh:

Within the last 15 minutes or so (about the same time the text turned white) I have started receiving popups every time I open a new page in the forums. Very annoying! (I'm getting very tired of the popup for fullsail.com! :aargh3: )

Becka

Here's a picture of it- http://members.lycos.co.uk/delcarmen/odd.jpg

It's related to that Full Sail pop up. I get that pop up EVER SINGLE TIME I click on ANYTHING. EVERYTIME!!!!

Hmmmmmmmmmm seems like it's back once again. How much time have you already told telefragged not to put pop-ups on the fora??? Must be like the 3rd or 4th time. When will they learn? :mad:

And at the bottom of every page, I seem to have a rather large image area (with a broken link - just a red X in the corner). It is actually a link to Telefragged's homepage.

Good observation ainwood. This is really weird. And it keeps getting weirder.

At least I'm now seeing something besides fullsail.com! Woohoo! I can win a trip to Universal Studios, with Gary Coleman as my persoanl guide!

Ahh, and finally a game-related one, at least: I can order Icewind Dale II Collector's Edition, for a limited time only!

:grumble: These things are getting soooo annoying! Every click-thru I make! :grumble:

Gary Coleman was _The_ popup of children's actors.

Padma
Aug 07, 2002, 09:43 AM
Right now, I'm guessing that that big empty box at the bottom of the page is where these "pop-ups" are supposed to go, and somebody f***ed-up the implementation.

First the white, and now pop-ups!

This is unreal today.

Well, our black text is back and the popups have subsided, but I feel it will come back.
