Maybe this should be in feedback, but what the hell is with the popup ads I am getting here on the forums the last couple days?!

Ads, R9. I know about the immature little brats & their java hacking. I'm talking about popup ads, those things that annoy the hell out of me. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif

Ah! Now I see what you mean! I've gotten about 3 ads for a credit card offer in the last 5 min. AARRRGGGHHH! That's annoying. First the banner ads, now this. Looks like our hosts have some bills to pay.

Yes, the popup ads that keep appearing... that's what I hate, they are the most annoying form of ads that can be used. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/mad.gif

Tycho, you problably got them filtered out. There are some web servers that do that I think.

Whats going on is that there are advertizements appearing randomly when members go to different pages. (Example: I had a VISA advertizement suddenly appear.)

XWA is now on EFront servers. EFront is the ass-end of the internet. That means XWA + EFront = popup ads. Hope that answers all your questions.<font size=1>

I guess there are worse servers then this like Geocities...

At least I hope so.
