What are these things called?

Whatever the technical term for them are, I wish they would go away. I find them obtrusive, especially if viewing CB with the darker theme... The blue links that trigger these beasties are almost illegible.

What say you all?

I dont get the popups because I avoid the link, but the blue type is horrible.

Just being honest

Ivan, I know that any avenue to produce revenue from CB is worth exploring. I wouldn't blame anyone for that, but these pop-ups gotta go.

They've turned browsing CB from an entertaining and engaging learning experience with our peers into navigating a virtual mine field. Trying to avoid being "hit" with another advertisement, which most of the time the ads have nothing to do with the triggering-link.

Just my 2 cents worth.

With all these pop-up

With all these pop-up bubbles appearing I feel like I'm trapped in a 1980's music video...

Thanks for the feedback

Thanks for the feedback guys. We will keep testing it for a while and after that we'll reconsider. Please bear with me until than!

Logged in users should not see them

We have implemented a change where logged in users will not see these links. We continue to experiment and see what works best. Hope this is less intrusive.
