AGH! Pop-ups!

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 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.

The popups temporarily infected the rest of the forums.

This has been fixed.

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.)))


What me worry?

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

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.

true... hey can you get me that pic of Jango Fett? I am making an Episode II wallpaper for my brother, and I can't find any good pics.

My e-mail is indianajim716@altavista.com

Thanks

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