I had no idea people actually used more than 1 popup/under! I even took the popunder off of NoviceAmateurs because I thought my users would get pissed off as I thought it was an annoyance!

1 pop-up is acceptable, 2 is madness, 3 or more is just insane. :)

Oli? "no more than four popunders"? Are you nuts?? :dude:

This has nothing to do with middle ground... More than 2 popunders is just crazy!!

Remember that these are fucking image galleries, can you imagine a poor guy without firefox trying to get 20-30 pics from any of these crazy image hosts? He'll have to go through 50 popunders... INSANE! :diediedie:

Remember Oliver, you are sending YOUR traffic to these hell holes, this shit does not affect them (they are making money from it) but rather YOUR own visitors :roll:

Re-read me, Coop : if I were to go for a middle ground, that would have been that.

BTW.
Doing testing myself,
editing now and then.
OK, edits done.

Modus operandi : click a thumbnail in a gallery-dump gallery page, wait patiently for the page to load fully, click (if needed) to "view the image" in (if there is one) the intermission page, and, once the image page is loaded, click the image to (possibly) view it in full-size.
Do the test on 4 images from the same host in a row, more images if there are doubts.
Test ran with firefox with adblock turned off.

Quote:
DamImage : 11 popunders first, 8 popunders every following image
Gallerynova : 6 popunders first, 6 popunders every following image
ImagEarn : 2 popunders first, 0 popunders every following image
ImageDecode : 11 popunders first, 7-8 popunders every following following image
ImageFolks : 5 popunders first, 3 popunders every following image
ImageTeam : with firefox, 8 popunders first, 8 popunders every following image.
With IE : 2 popunders first, 2 popunder every following image.
ImageTwist : 0 popunders first, 0 popunders every following image
ImgBabes : 5 popunders, 0 popunders every new following mage
It's worth mentioning that when I tried again hours later (forgetting I had already tried imgbabes), I only had two popunders to start and that was all.
ImgBar : 2 popunders, 1 popunder on second image, 0 popunders every following image
ImgCandy : 6 popunders first, 4 popunders evey following image
ImgChili : 1 popunder first, 0 popunders every following image
ImgClick : 5 popunders first, 3-4 popunders every following image
ImgDetop : 7 popunders first, 4 popunders every following image
ImgFlare : 3 popunders, 1 popunder on second image, 0 popunders every following image
ImgMaster : 9 popunders, and then 6, 4, 2 and 1 popunder. But I must highlight my browser has managed to shut down at least 1 other popunder window several seconds after it had opened, and I didn't include them in the count. That looked weird, so I re-tested in IE : page stopped responding after clicking to view the image. And tested in Safari : 4 popunders, and then 1-2 popunders every following image, although sometimes Safari managed to close by itself the popunder windows after a few seconds.
ImgMega : 4 popunders, 2 popunders every following image
ImgPaying : 4 popunders first, 3-4 popunders every following image, and also the forced start of the download of an .exe
ImgRock : 7 popunders first, 4 popunders every following image
ImgSpice : 1 popunder first, 0 popunders every following image
ImgTiger : 1 popunder first, 1-2 popunders for a minute, and then zero popunders every following image
ImgTube : 6 popunders first, 4 popunders during 30 seconds, 3 popunders every following image
ImgServe : 2 popunders first, 1 popunder on second image, 0 popunders every following image
ImgSwift : 1 popunder first, 0 popunders every following image
ImgWet : 3 popunders first, between 2 popunders every following image
PicExposed.com : 6 popunders (only after clicking in case it shows a fuller-res image, zero before it)


-- FINAL EDIT TO THIS POST

Now I have a usable list.

I am tempted to ban all image hosts with more than two popunders, but that would make a crazy short list.

And, on top of all, there's a risk the uploaders would just go away from the site, it's got to be considered, will they switch, or give up.

I would then consider allowing image hosts that throw up to 3 popunders.
From this list, this would mean that the allowed ones would be :
- ImagEarn
- ImageTwist
- ImgBar
- ImgChili
- ImgFlare
- ImgSpice
- ImgTiger
- ImgServe
- ImgSwift

What would be your thoughts on this, guys ?

Also, ImgFlare didn't throw me 5 popups like Gd has. On the other hand, I had many more popunders with ImgFlare, compared to Gd.
Sooo...
I would also really appreciate if you guys could do some testing on your side :)

Imgflare is ran by the same people that run Imgbabes.

All I can say is,your visitors deserve the best browsing opportunities they can have.If banning a few extra popup nightmare hosts will chase a few members off,so be it.You have an obligation to those that visit your site daily to give them the best possible browsing experience they can have

Just my 2 cents :)

+1 for banning the imagehosts with excessive popups on main site and forum.
They should consider if they want more traffic from gallery-dump or keep the popup farm.

Please, is there a chance I could convince someone else, other than our dear Gd, to also run this test, and count, with adblock off, how many popunders you are showered with ?

I would appreciate the output, as the results may vary from one person to another.

Also, side note, check it out, now on gallery-dump, I started banning the "undoubtedly worst" image hosts. If I were a visitor and was showered with popunders like that, I would never come back to gallery-dump, so good riddance.

(click to enlarge and get 20 popunders right when you open it.)

Updates : woops, I forgot the glorious ImgDecode, and others. The image is *already* obsolete, sigh.
