This board is ruining itself

I'm getting sick lately of all that add-on windows with advertising.

When this wtaboard first appeared it was to have an alternative for all the posters when teh official wtaboard was stopped.

But now the succes of this board has grown. Lots of new users. More broaband needed? So advertising needed to pay broadband space??
The negative side of the story is thus that lately lots of windows with advertising pop up. This is so disturbing that maybe one-day I'll stop to check this site. I love it very much but all those pop-up windows make me wonder....

Allez, Come-on, ...,

I dont like the pop ups either but since this is free then I dont think we have any true right to complain. This is a great website, almost as good as venustennis.com.

Get popip killer.. soon as a window pops up the closes it shut and put the window on a black list.. cant surf the net these days without a popup killer.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

The pop-ups piss me off, but it's a small price to pay to be on such a great site Hopefully the pop-ups will leave soon though.

Why are they so disturbing? They are just a minor nuisance to me. What I find more disturbing is the close-mindedness of some of the posters around here.

How much does it cost? Cos loadsa sites (not tennis, just general ones) are asking for donations to stay alive. I'd rather pay a small amount each for membership or whatever and have a nice quick site but I understand thats not really possible what with the thousands of members already around and all the hassle of paying a teeny bit each etc.

it's a little annoying but not that much.
at least they appear on another site, you also have popups who come on the page and then you have to wait at least two minutes to get site and info you want!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Panicware.com has a 30 day free trial that helps stop pop-ups.

Instead of totally closing the popups, one should simply minimize them. That way when a person leaves this site and returns, the popups will not appear again.

The only thing to point out is that succes can be very negative for persons and things. They are lots of examples of sportspeople that can't cope with succes. This board is getting so huge that it needed to make a choice. It grew with it members and now it needs funds to keep this thing going. It's very annoying all those pop-ups windows. Something that blocks me to check this site more often. A year ago it was more pleasant to read.

They are more tennis boards than this. Not as huge but more user-friendly. So probably I will check those more.

But this is a good thing according to you because I'm too clos-mindedned. So that's one close-mindedned person less. Now the other ones and you have a pure message board!
