Not really rying to do a poll or anything.

I have just noticed lots of pop up ads while browsing through here, starting to get really annoying. Does anyone know how to get rid of them?

Nope.

The adbots are pretty aggravating, though.

You get banned for suggesting that, fyi. Ads is how UG makes their money, and thereby is able to provide us with the wonderful service of tabs and music news, etc. Don't use adblock, if you care about UG.


OT: If you use google chrome, you don't get popups. You just get these little video ads or banners at the top or sides of the page. Or just disable popups.
Also, I don't think UG even has a "donations" section...

I don't always use UG, but when I do I use Adblock.

Hypothetically that is.

Oh shit, deleted my post, but a a ton of people quoted me.


Oh well....

Edit: Isn't disabling popups from the browser just like using ad block? You don't get the ads either way

i think the "value" of internet advertising is blow way out of proportion, i actually have never bought anything due to an internet ad generated impulse and i don't even have adblock.

don't care, and it's on a different server all the time. in other words, even the creators don't know where it is right now.

I have never had a pop-up on UG, and I don't use ad-bloc or anything like that, just Chrome basic. I have the banners if you're just misidentifying them. Even when I've used Internet Explorer and Mozilla I didn't get them.

Ads have never really been a problem for me. They would be annoying at first but I got used to them after about three days.

Usually because there's people (like myself) who got banned for saying, "Use adblock". Then, we come back, realize our mistake, and decide we were wrong.

It would if I didn't "find a way around them".

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

I use Firefox and the NoScript addon. Works perfectly: no ads or popups.

Go ahead, ban me.
