Hello all,
We usually say no to pop-ups on mumsnet because they're irritating but we've been offered a campaign to run for the next two weeks which is capped at one view per user per week. In other words, so long as you've not disabled cookies on your machine, you will only see it twice maximum in it's lifetime.

What thinks the mumsnet jury - can you live with it? How many of you have disabled cookies and will get cross? Can we accept and earn a bean or two or shall we deny and go hungry ?

I can live with it if it helps mumsnet tbh.

Is it for something very annoying? I can live with it I guess.... as long as I don't mess up the cookies again!

Gwenick Wed 11-May-05 15:05:11

Accept it.....

Fine by me, my puter has been set to block pop-ups,.......although I do tend to then allow pop up from sites because I am just downright nosey..defeats the purpose really I should get a grip I really should!!!

WideWebWitch Wed 11-May-05 15:08:21

Oh, my pc will block it too so that's ok!

fastasleep Wed 11-May-05 15:09:28

You should get an Ann Summers pop up I think Justine...

It's for Disneyland fastasleep.

GhostofNatt Wed 11-May-05 15:13:31

Exactly how hungry are you?

fastasleep Wed 11-May-05 15:13:37

Awww boring.

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 11-May-05 15:14:04

Quite - but then I had a salad for lunch.

GhostofNatt Wed 11-May-05 15:15:57

You see, salad is pricey, if you ate cheap carbs wouldn't need popups! ah go on have the popups then..

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 11-May-05 15:17:41

You've got a point GhostofNatt - and salad ingredients from Abel and Cole - pasta no sauce for me tomorrow.

GhostofNatt Wed 11-May-05 15:19:07

Or crisps, if you all ate crisps at Mumsnet HQ would be no need for any advertising at all.

fastasleep Wed 11-May-05 15:19:44

I just thought that maybe the pop-up would get clicked on more if it was Ann Summers.....knowing the dirty lot around here.

I don't have a problem with it ... don't go hungry on our account!

I have disabled my cookies ( sounds very interesting!) and it will truthfully bug the hell out of me having blocked pop ups go "ping" everytime i swap pages on MN but i can happily live with it for 2 weeks if it helps the poor church mice at MN towers. When is it going to start?

hunkermunker Mon 16-May-05 21:51:11

Well, you know how I feel about pop-ups (because I mentioned it once and I'm sure you have nothing better to do than remember anything I say ), but since you asked so nicely, no I have no problem with it. Just don't go making a habit of it

katierocket Mon 16-May-05 21:53:57

was going to say an emphatic NO but if only twice then fine. FEED MN I say

pixiefish Mon 16-May-05 22:10:50

Willow2 Wed 18-May-05 22:30:43

Do it.

wasgoingto Fri 20-May-05 09:20:09

well I have had it twice - yesterday and today - does that mean I won't get it again. Its very annoying.

morningpaper Fri 20-May-05 09:24:02

I'm getting it once a day (yesterday and today) when I first log on, but it's not a problem.

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 20-May-05 09:29:35

yes I got it yesterday and today too, will check that as it is definitely supposed to be capped at once a week.
