as the title says, ever since yesterday this site and Erogedownloads has been making popups pop up with everything I click, and I mean everything. also the damn things won't let me close them til they are fully loaded which is a bad thing if they got malware in them. this just started happening yesterday and its annoying as hell. Is this only happpening to me? and yes my pop up blocker is on.

Haven't had anything of the sort myself, I've seen the page down a few times since the new look (and server change?) but thats about it.

yeah this started happening to me about a week ago on erogedownloads site. Hasn't happened here though so I'm not sure why thats happening to you on this site. My operating system is win7 64 if that has any relation to the problem.

Using NoScript aswell, you might wanna look into it aswell since it's a nice piece of added security for your browser.

that would also prevents pop-ups on other sites

It's not another site, or my IP address, All the other places I go to are fine, they aren't having the same problem. and like I said before, non of this started happening on this site with me until 3 days ago, before that I didn't have all the things. and it's not another site cause I only have one tab open and that is this one.

I am also using win 7 64. but I am using IE8.

Ads are served to non-registered "leechers". Everyone who's logged in, doesn't get any ads, hence "lolwut?" replies from regular active members that OP is seeing.
I'll prepare official statement in couple of minutes.

Seem to be getting different stories here. I personally don't care if Ivan puts ads on the site or not, he's the admin and he can do what he feels is best in my opinion. Could someone please explain a bit more about those addons for chrome though. I would like to see if they can solve my problem.

As you might've noticed, past few days, I've been on upload-spree. I want to get every game that was ever released in English posted on site.
Since I'm very far away from home, and i don't have access to my DVDs with burned oldschool stuff on it, I've been visiting other sites, trying to collect odd game here and there. There are quite a few sites sites with this kind of content ( 98% of them just leeches stuff from me and posts as their own, but let's not get into that subject again... ), and I know only two that doesn't feature any ads, one of which is hosted ghetto-style on home pc of site owner and takes 2-3 minutes to load.
What really made me feel like a sucker was henarchive... that site has 19 (sic!) ad-units on every page, yet they still have the nerve to ask for donations "to keep site running". I've checked their alexa rankings and they seem to be even more popular than ED... feels bad when shit like that is higher ranked than site that you spent literally thousands of $s to keep ad-free for best user experience, isn't it?
I belive that currently EG and ED are the best sites available in this niche in terms of quality - fastest releases, no dead links, best seeded torrents, but after seeing shit that gets passed as "quality site", I've decided to stop funding ED/EG sites out of my own pocket - users are going to get 100% of what they've put in. 99% gets ad-block? fine, enjoy site being hosted on some crappy 5$/month shared server that times out 9 out of 10 times when you refresh page.

Yes, i know pop-ups suck, but i've been working with those networks for years - i simply don't know good banner networks that will:
-accept this kind of traffic
-don't pay shit like 0,01$ CPM
-install no malware on user's PCs
I'll be looking into some banners, CPC or stuff that'll replace popups, but it takes time...

On related note - if you're willing to fund server that is able to handle 2952004 pageviews/month - feel free to contact me, and I'll gladly remove all ads. I'll also need seedbox with SSH access, 1TB+ HDD and unlimited 1Gbit uplink. Estimated cost for both is 450-500$.

You can also just check "keep me logged in" and you'll get no ads on EG, without needing to install any add-ons to your browser.

Had not found noticed this feature yet but now I know for the future. Thank you for your response.

The ads seemed to have stopped now while I'm logged in. It wasn't before but now it has. Ah so you did change the stuff over. alright. As long as I'm logged in it doesn't happen.

I always feel bad when I read issues from hosts of websites that require ad views to keep going. The nature of how ads are able to disrupt, infect, and just ruin your computer for no good reason makes Adblock a vital thing to me. I don't have the money to support directly, nor do I have the money to get a good virus protection and malware removing software on my computer(or the ability to replace said computer) to deal with the side effects of openly viewing ads.

So I for one, am very thankful for the registered user ad free mode, and if it's any worth, I really do appreciate all the work and money you put in for us Ivan.

A bit off-topic, but Microsoft Security Essentials is one of the best antivirus and malware protection programs and it's free (if you have Windows)

just put up the donation box and give donator some benefit like a forum for donator only,and colour name or something,and about not taking money from member i't can't be helped when u don't have enough money to support the site by yourself thus i don't see anything wrong by just putting up the donation box if someone want to donate they will.

IVAN can support both site by his own >.>
he's been doing that for years..
its just that there have been a discussion going on
and most of us agreed to have more ads to help funding both sites..
and plus..
we have given up hopes on relying on donations..
but certainly...
ivan can put it up and felt sad again~~

Three issues with donations:
-I've had donation button on ED some time ago. There were 3 donations in total in span of 2 months, for total ammount 11,47$.
-Legal issues. It's kinda of gray area, since by accepting donations it'd kinda be like "selling" someone's else copyrighted work, kinda depends how judge would look at it. Contary to popular belief, this website is completely legal as it is now.
-(most important one) With current, ad-supported model, people who don't care much about site ( hit-and-run leechers who just grab the games and don't even bother registering/saying thanks ) carry the burden of sponsoring content for people who care ( registered members don't see any ads). If i remove ads and ask for donations, it'll be other way around. I can bet any money, that leechers who don't even bother registering, which takes 15 seconds, won't donate any money... of course it'd be regular members who'd foot the bill for leechers to benefit.

there are few other alternative as making ED/EG for member only,using these will make sure anyone who want to view ur site need to register thus increasing the member online and more activity on the site itself,and about leechers there are few alternative that i can suggest but the only way to chase off leechers is to make the website a closed comunity.

anyway if you doesn't want to put up a donation box i guest pops add the only way.

The usual register if you want to download eh? Do we really wanna go that path? I don't think that's a good idea.

Remind me why do we need to chase away those leechers.

Donation box is a bit risky imo.

No,no,no. I don't want this site to turn into some secret english-eroge circlejerk closed club. Main reason i started the sites is to make them more available in western markets. I'm not going to force people to register just to see download links or something like that.
Leechers are natural occurence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1%25_rule_(Internet_culture)), and trying to fight that is like pissing upwind... Instead of that, wouldn't it be better to use them to foot the bills by seeing ads, so that the other people who care/contribute can enjoy the best quality website instead?
