The best thing that has come of this is that I've updated and scanned all my computers for adware/spyware. Sometimes I need a remeinder to do that. This was that reminder.

Default Re: Popups?

I know pop-ups and ads are no ones favorite thing to get, I myself don't enjoy them all that much.

People have been saying for awhile now that "Pop-ups = spyware" - However, I have yet to recieve any spyware in any form from these popups, or popups else where.

Spyware and virus' are hard to track where you got it from, the best defense is to be pro-active in preventing them by installing a good anti-virus/anti-spyware combo.

I would highly recommend AVG anti-virus and AVG anti-spyware found here.

NOTE: please ask your parents or the owner of the computer before downloading ANY program anywhere!

Never go to any suspicious sites or download any program without asking someone who knows about computers first. - and if you do download a program be sure to scan it for virus' and spyware before running it!!

To manage the price of running a 'free' website most have to look at adding ads and popups at some point.

In defense of WI; I think this is the best placement and most manageable area for ads I've ever seen. They don't bother me at all here.

$1200 per month - Yikes! I don't think any of us realized how much this forum costs to maintain!

I have the add on Firefox pop up blocker - I'll disable it and deal with the pop ups if it helps pay for WI! If we click on any of the ads (like Make-a-wish, etc at the top) does WI get more money or is it just having the ad visible that brings in the revenue?

Thanks for such an incredible site!

Exclamation Re: Pop Ups on WI (help! anyone!)

Everyone please stop a take a deep breath. If you will just read Justin's comments on this thread, you will hopefully be assured about what is going on. Take the time to read all of his posts in the thread.
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...t207410p2.html

If you read Justin's comments, you will have learned that:
They are pop unders and do NOT cause spyware or viruses.
You should only get 2 every 12-16 hours.
They are only on the WI home page, not on the forum.
Justin has disabled the undesirable content messages. The remaining ones are quality.
Finally, it costs about $1200 a month to keep WI running. The ads and the donations pay for this. If you don't like the ads, then why don't you consider making a donation (or ask your parents).

I use WI more than WW, so I'm appreciate Justin's efforts in keeping this site free, but at the same time safe.
