CurlTalk

That new pop-up ad

SpringcurlSpringcurl Posts: 8,002Registered Users
Is that one really necessary? I'm sorry but it's wicked annoying. We have ads all over and that's fine, but that one is SOO intrusive. It really makes coming her much less enjoyable.You also might consider telling their ad people is is that it makes me LESS likely to buy anything from them.

    Yes, I don't mind ads in general but that one is incredibly annoying.

    Which one?

    I haven't gone on the website from a computer in ages, but I did today and Camilla Alves kept jumping out at me.

    That one?

    I'm never on my computer. Who is that? The ad people I mean.

    It's an ad for Macy's house brand, I.N.C. (she is the current design consultant). Cute clothes but I would rather not have them splashed all over the forums.

    THANK YOU for passing this along Gretchen. IT IS JUST TOO ANNOYING. It loads in front of the forum and then opens a new tab and selects that tab. REALLY? I hope they can remove it or stop it from doing that.

    The new one is even WORSE. It pops up HUGE and takes forever to load so you are trying to select a post and end up clicking on the ad and going to the site. Great for CPC I'm sure but really frustrating for users. It makes me want to stop using the site all together and stick to the mobile app.

    Ugh, and it loads often. It not only makes me hate THEIR site, but makes me like this one less.
  • coilynappcoilynapp Posts: 4,233Registered Users
    It turns out that the new annoyance opens when you ROLL OVER IT. Make it stop please!?

    I know you're on this now, but the new ad, featuring Nicole Ritchie TALKS! It's very annoying as with pop-up ads on other sites there is a small X on the top to close it if you want. Not so with these, they just load and start talking, which if you're browsing during a downtime at school is not good if you forgot to turn off the sound!

    And with the roll-over. I KNOW I do not roll-over. They just pop up when the page has loaded.

    I have ad blockers and didn't realize how many ads are on this site til I used my sister's computer one day. I was astounded at the sheer number of ads. Thank goodness for adblockers or I wouldn't be able to come here anymore.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    The big pop up ads aren't happening because I roll over; I just had the Nicole Ritchie one pop up twice in less than two minutes and I wasn't anywhere near the top of the page. Very annoying.
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

    I heard back from the ad team. Apparently they are working with a third-party company that is placing those pop-up ads, and they are in touch with them to address the issue.

    There was one that was a roll over one. Yesterday the N. Richie one popped up on me. I installed ad blocker because I was sick of all the ads.
