The following dialogue took place in a recent HTF thread:

Speaking of ads I have been getting pop-up ads for Best Buy.

 

 

Dave Upton, on 27 Nov 2013 - 11:40 AM, said:
Tony - this was actually a bug. It should only be popping up once a day, and only for people not logged in. If you see it, please let us know.

 

I have been seeing this pop-up ad for a week or so.  But I have also been having issues with getting logged out on a regular basis (often more than daily).  So I didn't say anything about the ads.

 

But I have been logged in for the past couple of days and have been seeing this ad whenever I first sign in:

I don't see the pop-up on the computer much.

 

Where I do see it is on my phone everytime I have to restart the app.

 

When on 4G I can remain on the app indefinitely. On 2G I drop off quite a bit. Might be my network...but still annoying.

Are you all still seeing this multiple times when logged in? It's supposed to be very limited, as stated before - so we certainly don't want to be inconveniencing you.

Not recently no, but I too was seeing them when logged in a few days ago. Looks solved thanks!

I lost my signature and all I got was this Nutter t-shirt

No, Dave, they stopped for me, too.

 

But I AM finding myself having to log back in nearly every day...and sometimes more than once a day onto the forum.

 

It goes back to a recent password change for me (facilitated by Adam) when I was traveling recently and couldn't sign in--using my "go to" password.  This situation has been prevalent for me since that day. 

 

When I click the "Sign In" button, I go to a screen that has my screen name and password pre-typed for me (both at home and work)--so it's not a HUGE inconvenience...but I'm not used to things being this way.

Mike - I think it's probably a browser issue, but i'll check your account out to be sure.

Never mind.  It WAS a browser issue.  After checking my Firefox options a number of times, I finally found a "hidden" panel within the options section that somehow got changed and I was losing my log-in information every time I shut down Firefox.  speechless-smiley-034.gif

 

I don't know how these things happen.   But they do.  I just changed it and now figure I should be back in business.

Using the mobile app on the iPhone 5, I would have to say the pop ups are annoying.

Just now, on my iPad, loading HTF caused the App Store to launch and bring up a game app, Dragon City Mobile

Sorry I missed this.  Logged out users should be getting takeover/popup ads once a session, logged in users never should are you still seeing these?

I keep getting "sorry HTF has stopped". Then I restart the app still logged in...but the new session causes the popup on the phone. The app only dies if I click out to something else.

My laptop (no matter what browser, even Opera) never sees pop ups. I can restart the computer and I'm still logged in and pop up free.

As a side note, HTF updated a bit ago so maybe the "sorry the app died" Will stop.

Get used to it ppl.  Give HTF owners a break.  These guys bust their balls to put this site online FOR FREE and everyone bitches when a measly ad pops up?  ;)  Just give them a break and click it for them, then come back as business as usual. 

 

Free forums like this need to pay their bills somehow. 

 

Good job HTF!  Love you guys.  :wub:
