the add pop up is annoying

11 posts in this topic

every time i go somewhere on this forum, that stupid little floating ad pops up. sure it says i can close it but it never lets me. please get rid of it.

i mean if it were to open once and i could close it, well fine, but over and over and over - it makes me feel like not coming back here.

I like the add that's selling a "glove" that cures any slice! I can only presume it costs $300 and comes with 6 free lessons!

What ad? You have to be more specific.

Additionally, I've never seen an ad you can't close, and they only activate when you hover over them for three seconds (if you're talking about the relatively new interactive ads).

I don't get those, because i run ad-block on Mozilla or Chrome browsers. It kills a ton of ads for me.

I run google chrome and don't get any pop ups here, although a rare popup from different sites will occasionally breach the wall.  Maybe it's malware on your computer, OP.  Do you see the same ad on other websites besides TST?

this is the only site that pops up a hovering ad bar. its on the bottom of the screen shot. it even has a close option but i cant ever close it.

i changed some browser setting and it comes less but it always pops up eventually. sometimes on every single post i look at.

i get the need for ad revenue, because this site needs to be paid for, but its constantly harassing me and becoming an annoyance.

You'll note that you're not logged in. Logged in users don't ever see that floating ad at the bottom of the browser.

To you and any others who run AdBlock, I'd request that you disable it for thesandtrap.com. We feel we provide a LOT of GOOD stuff for free, and we'd appreciate it if you could return the favor of letting us make a penny or two.

How about you get to access a great forum with tons of free advice, in exchange for stuff on the periphery of the page that pays our bills and allows us to keep operating the site for free?

That's a nice reward.

And I recommend you not use any ad blocking software for reasons stated above. Or pay the $29 to become a Supporter and disable the ads if you want. But they're usually relevant, and they pay the bills while you get to enjoy the site for free.

Also, again, the "pop-up" (which isn't a pop-up) ad only appears when you're not logged in.

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
