Alright, I experienced my first pop-up advertisement from everythingiCafe just now. How annoying is that? I realize that sites have to make money, but not too many other forums that I use have pop-up ads. :(

I don't care about it much, but what I do find interesting is that the only pop up add I get is for verizon wireless.... Kinda seems pointless to advertise on a forum for people with a specific type of phone that doesn't work with verizon...

relax. If you make a friendly request for Chris to look into it, he usually takes care of these kinds of things. It seems that he doesn't have direct control over the ads as a separate company organizes them.

iLounge isn't exactly light on the ads either, btw. At least EIC is ad-free on the iPhone.

I meant to contact them this week about removing the popup. Should be done tomorrow.

LOL! :p

It looks like it worked! Chris is looking into it. ;)
Actually, it was mentioned before. Also, the way to handle things isn't a link to iLounge. It makes me iCringe. :mad:

Either way, it'll be fixed tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest. I don't have direct control over the ads, so it'll take me a day or two.

And you know you cannot leave EIC. It's addicting or so says the upcoming iCafe ad that's expected to hit newstands next month.

I love it here, Chris...in the short time I've been around, I've made quite a few friends. Keep up the good work!

i don't understand why people just don't take it upon themselves to remove popups from their web browsing experience. It's easy to do and VERY effective.
