    It is very aggravating... It has pop-up on me several times and covers the entire window.

    Not user friendly at all.

    Getting rid of the ads was plenty worth it for me when I got the premier membership.

      Have a great day!!

    If you hover over the Nikon ad it pops up.

    Hit the "Close"  button in the upper right of the ad

    I had it pop up for me.  I own a Nikon.  I paid the premier membership.

    Go figger.

    If it keeps the site going, I will put up with it.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    So how about Huddler fixes the site and knocks off the pop up BS so anyone can use the site without having to use a special browser like firefox or Chrome.  I am on Chrome right now and got the pop up 4 times in the last 5 minutes

    Its not Huddler. Its the ad site that they get the advertising from. This has been brought up to them to address. You can also use the feedback form at www.smokingmeatforums.com/feedback and that goes to them directly. This way you do not need to wait for one of us to contact them.

    I use Firefox.  I haven't checked for the "Ad Blocker Plus".

    I only had it happen one time.

    This is still a great site.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I must admit -- it was really aggravating. If I were a newbie nosing around the site early on, I would probably move along to somewhere else. Just sayin.....

    I don't mind the ads, except the ones that come up so often in the reply box!  Those are disgusting, and should be stopped!

    You have to back out of the page & come back, and if you're lucky you can get your cursor in before the ad gets there again.

    The only other thing is the ones that get big & cover half of the screen, and play music, just because you accidentally scrolled over their trigger, but like I said, "The ones that really bother me are the ones that beat me to the reply box!"

    My 2 Piasters,

    Huddler was going to contact the ad company today to get those popups removed. Since they use a ad company every now and again they get thru thats why you really need to use the feedback form so they get the notification right away.

    I apologize for starting this thread in the wrong area, I looked through available topics; from what I perceived, this seemed most fitting. My bad.

    Any problems alerting Huddler about this particular thread just to give them a heads up? Reason I ask is you have mentioned twice in this thread that you would like these notifications in the feedback forum...

    You posted in the correct thread.

    As for letting them know you are welcome too. I started a thread on a huddler forum we have access too and they acknowledged that they have asked for it to be taken down.

    This post should be the most important point of the thread; well stated adiochri3.
