I just noticed that everytime I swith to a new page on the website to answer a question I get an annoying popup in the bottom right corner.
I find this annoying and distracting. Does anybody know how to turn this off?
I will stop answering questions if this behaviour is not changed. The losers will be the people who ask questions hoping to get answers in this forum.
If the site want to display popups then display them on the pages when a new question is asked, not when people answer questions.
Just wondering if I'm the only people annoyed with the popups.
No, you're not the only one who's annoyed. This must be a new "feature" from either the forum software or the owner of the forum. I wish there were something I can do other than pass your concerns along. If enough people complain, maybe we'll get rid of this annoyance.

You guys without the popus are lucky. I use IE with the default popup blocker support that doesn't seem to do anything. The popups seems to display for about 15 seconds then slide away for 5 seconds and another popup displays.

I'm annoying on this too. Actually because of this I start to use chrome as well, but it's happen on all FF (up to date), IE 7 and Chrome. No popups works for that.

Man, I + that, it is the most annoying popup I've ever come across. If I wait a few seconds it drops down out of site, but as soon as I start typing or scrolling, it's back.
There's an "X" box to close it, but that only works for the current page. Go to a new page and it's back again.
I agree with camickr, it's annoying enough to leave the forum. I'm not up to the skill level to answer many questions, though I have tried a few times, but it does make one not want to do much with this forum.

You know, I wouldn't mind them so much if they were normal ads (NetFlix, Fandango, etc.), but these all seem to be snake-oil ads. Things you expect to see in the back of the National Enquirer.

I solemnly swear that I've never seen those nasty popups; how come? I never did anything special to my browsers ...

I see them in FF, but not in Safari.

This is happen on any browser, not a specific way. Since it's model pop-up non of the browser cannot block it actually. I'm searching that it use some kind of a cookie to keep information, but it's hard to track since I've hundreds of such in my browser.

I just disabled the ad for registered users. It will only be shown to unregistered users. Sorry, I forgot to place it in this way initially.
I could not test it either because it is only shown to users of some more developed countries such as USA.
Eranga, i am sorry to hear that you changed your browser because of this. Please contact me next time if sth annoying happens on the forum that you can not fix.

By the way is it a pop-up window? It should only be shown like a small layer at the bottom right corner? Is the ad shown in a new window? (I hate popups too)

It's popup (a child window) that appears on top of the parent window. Works in two ways, sometime it appears on top of the parent window and without interact with that you cannot work around in the parent window.
The other way is that use of a floating div element (as in our forum). In that case without interacting popups you can interact with the parent window. It's just an div element, not a window. So that pop-up blockers take it as a part of the main window html.
