So now it is orbitz?

So now it is orbitz gum?? Guess we just need to accept that we can no longer scroll through HPA without a pop up ad in the middle of our screens. At least this one disappears as you scroll, then pops back up when you stop....

I heard that https://adblockplus.org/ works to resolve that sort of problem. Give it a try.

Re: So now it is orbitz?

Take this for what it is worth.

Many regular members will probably put up with the pop ups or possibly download software to prevent them, because they like it here. Even though many of them find the pop ups very annoying which takes away from the sight.

Most members here do not post much and don't visit very often. Most people use mobile devices these days as well. When they check in and our greeted with pop ups, they are more likely to reduce their visits even more instead of downloading software to eliminate the pop ups. Few are going to download software just to view the site when they are not here that very often to begin with.

Then you have new folks that find this place or are told about it. Pretty sure there are new visitors every day checking it out with mobile devices. When they are greeted with pop ups, I don't think that is going to entice them to stick around, join and visit often.

So the bottom line is downloading software is an option. But, keep in mind, the members that visit every day and post are a fraction of the total visitors and members. Pop ups on mobile devices will slow down the growth of the site, IMO. The door in should be easy to open and the room welcoming.

At the risk of sounding like a former mod that can't just melt into the crowd, that is my opinion on the pop up blocker solution.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

As a mod using his phone for most duties I agree but I haven't had a problem with the newly mentioned one.

Orbitz one is weird. It only pops up when I am around Elmira or Binghamton. Don't happen here at home.

Welcome to the internet , it is not 1999 anymore, invent something new.

I remember when TV was free too.
