    Didn’t happen till kellen disappeared. Maybe he sold the site to some big web management company? When I click on something’s I get a cookies warning that I never got back in the day.

    I don't get any pop-ups. Have you tried turning on your browser's pop up blocker?

    I don't get any pop-ups either. So there must be some settings for your browser's pop up blocker that you can adjust to keep them from appearing.

    The cookies warning is due to European Union privacy laws. The hosts of the websites I manage put the in automatically for me.

    I don’t see the pop up ads on my computer browsers but do see them sometimes On my phone and tablet. Small price to pay for the forums here

    Just got my first popup ad just now.
    Notification that it was blocked.
    Still had click out of the notification.
    I get the regular ads, I have no problem with them.
