I agree and have contacted the other mods and admin stating the same thing. I just want it to open on the forums page like it did before.I have for some time defended the changes that were necessary for this to continue as a viable site. At this point I too think the "crap" is gathering. It's not pop ups but I assume well intended content that is getting in my way.
I have no interest in all those informational articles that appear when you bring the site up. I think they are just getting in the way of the true intent and are not meant to sell nor generate any income for the owner. In my environment I am forced to wait until they all are displayed before I can select "Today's Posts" and get on with what I came to do. Communicate with and learn from my peers.....maybe even buy or sell a dog or two..
Increase your rabbit kills
Curbing Canine Aggression
Braised Rabbit; Fried or Unfried
etc, etc, etc,......
That old lady waving her finger at me reminds me of a school teacher I didn't like....oh sorry I guess that is an ad or a pop-up....
I go through "Top 100" to get a hit for rabbitdogs.net to keep it near the top of the list so that web surfers find their way to what we are posting..... but I may take your advise...ThanksYou could always do what I did and just bookmark the forum page, but hey, I'm just a dumb ol' southern boy, whadda I know, right?
The difference i would see going to walmart is i expect to see a store full of stuff that I don't need;I love the site and the adds don't bother me at all. Heck if you go to Wal-Mart to buy a shirt you have to walk through the aisles that sell other things you don't want to buy, so what's the difference.
Look at it this way, when you put up a Christmas tree you usually decorate it with lights and all the bells and whistles, but gifts are under the tree, right ? So the board is decorated with adds but there is goodies and gifts in each selected forum.The difference i would see going to walmart is i expect to see a store full of stuff that I don't need;
and on this site i expect to see only Rabbit Dog stuff because of the name "RabbitDogs.net" not a "AnythingStore.net"
