PamsterRe: A complaint about pop-ups
I didn't get any pop ups there Momsheri, but thank you for the source, I don't see any traces of what would lead us to one of the ad networks and that is most likely because it is a Variable board. Have you downloaded and run AdAware? I do that several times a week since I visit a lot of sites that are elsewhere and get all kinds of garbage (spyware) and that removes it. :tongue:
MomsheriRe: A complaint about pop-ups
Here is the source from the pae I just received the never ending pop ups, but like I said I don't think it is from your ads . . . . .

MomsheriRe: A complaint about pop-ups
Well I get the never ending pop ups whenever I vist but I assumed it was from her javascript she has on her board.
BbAdminRe: A complaint about pop-ups
It isn't the pop up ad itself we need source from. It is the page you were on-on the board-that is where it will ID the network the ads came from. I haven't had this happen to me yet so I am unable to provide BbBoy with a source copy of a page where it happened. If anyone can do this we definitely can and WILL remove the network these ads are coming from. We use mutliple networks so getting the source from the board page you are on at the time this occurred will really help us out in tracking and ending this problem for everyone. :smile:
AldarowRe: A complaint about pop-ups
I'm the admin of that board. No JS.
MomsheriRe: A complaint about pop-ups
Also, check with the admins of that board and ask if they have any javascript on their board. I find that those that have a "tag board" installed have constant pop ups that are constantly popping up like you described, where no matter how many times you click on it another pops up.

Pamster, I know from experience that some of those pop up ads, won't allow you to view source when you right click, it just is not an option on some of them. . . which makes it harder to get you the information that you need.
BbAdminRe: A complaint about pop-ups
Also wanted to mention that those who get pop ups that are triggered when you close one, please right click and view source and follow the above instructions so that we can track the ad network that is sending those because we definitely do NOT want people to have more then the two pop ups per IP per 12 hours on fixed boards. We appreciate your help in this matter so that we can find and remove this from our network so that you and your members aren't being bombarded with things that are NOT supposed to be happening. :smile:
BbAdminRe: A complaint about pop-ups
The only way we are going to be able to find the source of this if it is indeed coming from one of our ad networks is to have the source code from a board page that was loaded when this happens. Right click on the board page you are on when this happened, go to 'View Source' and then send it to us either posting it here or putting it in an email to me at with a specific subject line of BbBoard Pop up code and I will make sure BbBoy sees it. This has not happened to BbBoy or myself so until it does we cannot track it. If someone can do copy the source of a page from the board that was loading when the problem pop up loaded that gives us what we need to stop allowing whatever network is sending that out to us and in turn sending it to you.

Please do NOT use pop up blockers on our network as you are stealing revenue from us and that is a big reason of why we are NOT taking any new boards OR allowing free boards to remain. If you use a pop up blocker you're violating our TOU and abusing our service.
AldarowRe: A complaint about pop-ups
No, it's not on a particular board.

I've spoken to a member who uses a pop-up blocker. She says that this ad bypasses the blocker. Which probably means that it's not just a regular graphic ad, it's an intentional spyware-sending pop-up.

Next time I catch it, I'll try to be more specific about its details.
NickdiskRe: A complaint about pop-ups
Is this just on the board's main page or a particular thread or something? :smile:

A BbAdmin will be along shortly to assist you :smile:

It's against BbBoards TOU to use a pop-up blocker on Best Boards :smile:
