Your 11.14.18 Playpen

Sounds like I whetted some appetites with yesterday’s Gundy post, so have at it in the comments.

Only thing I’ll add here is that, after seeing some of the terms of Georgia’s Amazon proposal, boy, am I glad it wasn’t successful. Talk about giving the store away…

I’m not even going to try to pretend y’all want to talk about anything other than the midterms.

Instead, I’m gonna let this dude lead things off today.

Go Dawgs!

Well played, LagwagonDawg78.

As for the seasonal race, it’s starting to look like Ant123 is running away with things.

A seven-point lead with three weeks to go will be pretty tough to overcome. But that’s why they play the games, says the cliché.

Housekeeping note: pop-up ads

As I’ve told many of you, I’ve had WordPress digging into the problem many of you have had with obnoxious pop-up ads ruining your time at the site.

According to Glenn at WP, the problem isn’t with GTP.  When I asked him to elaborate, given that many of you have registered the problem with me in the past couple of days, here’s how he responded:

This can also happen if you share your site link on other services. If the visitor is coming to your site from another page on a different service, then the pop ups could be coming from those. If you share a link to another site or a Twitter post from someone that has a link in the post and the visitor clicks on the link from your post, the site they are taken to can have pop ups as well. The ads on your site are not pop up ads. WordAds and WordPress.com do not allow for pop up ads on any screen, especially, mobile since this can damage your search engine results.

A way to test this is to ask the user to go directly to your site via the site address blutarsky.wordpress.com in a new browser tab on their device browser like Safari or Chrome. See if they get a pop up then and ask them to screenshot the ad and give the exact link they are on when they see the ad.

Those of you fighting with this, please follow his instructions and post your experience in the comments so I can forward them to him.

Sorry for the inconvenience.  I know it’s gotta suck.

************************************************************************

UPDATE:  Your responses have helped.  One more request from Glenn:

Is it possible to get at least one of your visitors IP addresses so we can narrow this down a bit. 🙂

Have them visit this link and send a screenshot of the results to you so you can send it to us.

No doubt after yesterday’s scintillating racism discussion, we’re all fresh out of political outrage, right?  So, talk about movies, books, music or whatever tickles your fancy today in the comments.  Or racism, I suppose.
