    Ever since the reset I am getting pop up ads constantly, they are very very annoying. Is there Any way for me to stop getting them? I am tired of x'ing them out so I can read posts towards the bottom.

    Not sure what Browser you use, but I use Firefox and have what's called 'Ublock and Yes Script' added to it. I have no pop ups at all.

    I'm on Windows 10 with the Browser and add ons spoken of in the previous message. I don't have any pop ups at all.

    Oh and for those that might say I don't have pop ups due to being a forum contributor, I never had pop ups even before I became a contributor

    I had been getting them too, but the last couple days are much better.

    How do I do either or both of those? I get an ad for Michigan hunting about every 20 seconds.

    If you're using Firefox, click on the browser menu in the upper right hand corner. Then click on 'add ons'
    When that comes up enter 'ad blockers' in the search section. It will bring up about 120 something blockers. scroll through and look for 'U block' and 'yes script'.
    They are what I use and I have absolutely no pop ups.

    This has been corrected if you are supporting member you will not see advertisements.
    Some of the dashboard ad units should only be seen by guests.

    However if you do run an ad blocker for G&G and are not a contributor, I ask you not to.

    I once asked the site owner on the original G&G about the ads. He told me that every time somebody clicked on an ad G&G got paid for it. So I clicked on them all the time. Is this the case today?
