Damnit, it seems those infernal things have progressed to our beloved Lucasforums :(

Thankfully only on the front page for now, but if it spreads.... suicide!

As far as I know, they'll only be on the main page, and they're not permanent. Server costs were very high this month, and they needed to be put in place to cover the charges.

I had Bonzi Buddy once... every 5 minutes the little purple sh*t would ask you to buy the full version of him for like 60 bucks.. so stupid I smashed him off my computer.

I had Gator, which appeared to be useful, but really wasn't. It installed a cute little adserv on my computer upon uninstallation of the main program.

I also had gator
I think it comes with getright

my brother downloaded bb some time ago, I almost strangled him
the actual software is way more annoying than the ads

The popups temporarily infected the rest of the forums.

This has been fixed.

Pop-ups ruin a perfectly good website *tear*... Not this one (hopefully)

Bonzi suxx)))
I had him too, but he was really annoying especially his machine voice. Uhh. The only option I liked was the reading. He read texts if I typed them. It was fun to make him say baaad things about himself. I'm pretty childish, I see.)))

LOL If I had ever take a look at its features, and noticed he did that, bonzy would have insulted himself quite a lot:D

Hmm, this reminds me of my days of abusing the SimpleText program on my middle school's Apple computers.

That's what they said on the Stratics network as well.... now pop-ups are everywhere.

Stratics.... no idea.

Now they addded a huge banner on the right side of the main page, throwing off the centering, and it looks retarded. I'd rather have that gone before the pop-ups.

I don't mind as long as the ads keep this place running.. :D

My e-mail is indianajim716@altavista.com

Sure, but the version I have is barely bigger than the one in my sig. Is that acceptable?

Hmm, they seemed to be dying down, but they're back now. Ph33r.
