I thought they'd gone.

Can I post an image here?

I have a screen shot.

The ones which prevented me from seeing Oct 29, 2011

the headings of the forum post columns on the right hand side, and the detail on this post? And the ones that tell me that "as a member, you have access to this feature" or some such? I would not mind them if I could use my mouse to move them out of the way of what I really want to read.

I've pretty much always had them:( Oct 29, 2011

I sent them a ticket ages ago, but to date Yana&Co. have been unable to do anything about it.
In my case they appear and disappear... could not detect a pattern there.

I don't want to see any ads. The popups disappeared for a while after I first reported them, but now they've come back.

Well te best idea is to submit a support ticket Oct 30, 2011

At least if you see more than translation related advertisements in meantime I would suggest installation of a pop-up blocker or alternative adblocker - they can work miraclesicon_smile.gif

My usual popup blockers don't stop these things, unfortunately.

Have you tried Adblock and Firefox? Oct 30, 2011

I never had any pop-ups on ths site... even when I was not a member... so maybe it's because I use Firefox and a great pop-up blocker, Adblock... try and see, maybe it's your solution!

Not sure what you mean Oct 30, 2011

I get a square pop-up that sits over the top of the far right column on the forums page and blocks out the name of the last poster to the latest thread, which is really annoying, as you can't move it or anything. It says:
"Have you read about any upcoming event for translators?
Share it with the translation community at ProZ.com translation news".

Yes Rachel - that's the one I mean. It should at least have an "X" box that lets you dismiss it. Better still, it shouldn't appear at all.

It's a bug, not a pop-up Oct 30, 2011

Tom, it's a display bug, not a pop-up, which is why it doesn't have an "X" box. This is what it looks like:



I submitted a support request in September and was told that developers were working to fix it.
As you said, it did go away, but it has come back again. It must be hard for the developers to reproduce, because sometimes it appears and sometimes it doesn't...

Whatever Oct 30, 2011

Well. Whatever it is, I don't want it.

I don't see any pop-ups Oct 30, 2011

not even in the screenshot.

I use Adblock Plus. But anyway, I agree, being a member, we shouldn't see any ads at all if we don't want to.

But Oct 31, 2011

since I opted after posting for 'reload the page' I have a slim oblong box bearing the same words that sits above the threads.

Fixing... Nov 1, 2011

Hello all,

I apologize for the delay in my reply.

The issue with the Translation News box at the top of the latest forum posts page has already been reported and developers are working to fix it.

I appreciate your patience.

Kind regards,

Lucia
