    Steroid.com pop up!! make it stop...

    First guys I have to say I love this forum. I have learned so much here. But can they change the pop up screen that is promoting Steroids .com so that guy doesn't immediatly pop up and start talking about steroids. Shoot I always log in which keeps that screen from poping up, however today sitting im my office I accidently clicked some link and up pops Mr. Promoter blurting out "welcome to steroids.com" for my whole office to hear, FML. I always have my computer on mute but forget to turn it back off after my kids were using it this weekend..

    Ok rant over...

    My wife knows I frequent this site and doesn't really care but it's popped up on me before and she's made some nasty comments. Maybe if you could have it pop up but only play if you click the play button. I can def. see this causing lots of conflict and problems for people. It is a great video though.

    Thanks, I'd appreciate it. I have added a fail safe routine to turning on my computer so this won't happen again. Another habit to add to my list of OCD behaviors. Lol

    Oh man if was my gf that would have been no problem! She's cool with this site. I keep telling her to join. She wants to run a cycle. I've told her I no nothing about women and steroids and to come on here and learn. I support her 100%.

    I pretty much keep my volume down or off also but ill be damned if the other morning at work my computer also said quite loudly, "welcome to steroids .com" and of course it was behind another window so I couldn't close or stop it right away. And for those who want to say why are you surfing the net at work? some of us are allowed to because our job does not require hand on a lot of the time.

    Agreed. I REALLY hate that pop up video.
    Honestly, it probably costs us traffic and members (the opposite of its intended effect), by instantly running off first-time visitors who stumble onto the site around polite company.

    At least redtube could be open to interpretation because it doesn't have a taboo word in it.

    OK no guarantee this will work but you may want to give it a try. Ill report back if my comes up again.

    This is what I just did tonight as a test. This is using Firefox.


    When the banner pops up pause the video. Do a right click near the top and choose This Frame and then choose View Frame info.


    When the other window opens click the permissions tab. Set open Pop up windows to block. Go down to Active Plugins and set Adobe Flash to block.

    Since it's a flash video and these settings will only take effect for this site it should/may work.

    If you are logged in, as a registered user, we have made a change to limit the popup to 1 time per month ( per computer you visit from ) as it uses cookies.

    Hopefully this helps to ease the "pain"

    The problems is if you have your system to clear cookies each time your shut down the browser it still pops up. My just did and I know it did the last time I was on the is computer 3 days ago.

    My heart rate jumped up when I saw it because I know my volume was not turned down. Luckily my above fix still worked and it was blank, only a black window.

    Annoying when it pops up on your phone too. Takes me forever to click the X with my fat fingers.

    This is very true. It comes up every time for me. I am not a fan either. Can we make it go away? I am not a firebox user :/

    The pop up should only come up if you are a new viewer. If you have your cookies cleared regularly then you may have a problem. that banner keeps the lights on so I want to help, but I also want to keep this place alive. double edge sword for sure guys and I do apologize. I will keep working on it and tweaking it

    Wow I haven't been on in awhile. Looks like I'm not the only one that dislikes the pop up.
