While I'm not a fan of popups, I do tolerate them when they are reasonable. The current forum popup is not one that is tolerable.

A. I already subscribe to the newsletter. Why does the web site not know this?
B. Why is the popup so frequent? Does NCIX truly believe people will change their minds within thirty seconds?
C. Is NCIX trying to discourage forum use? Or encourage aggressive use of popup blockers?

A previous time that they brought up a popup we had the same problems. It was very frequent and seemed to ignore that we had already seen it or that it was not applicable to our account if logged in.

Not a fan, either. They just motivate me to not use the site. :(

Enough with the popups. I've clicked "No thanks" many times.

I haven't seen a "popup" but just had an overlay show up.

Overlays are the new marketing scourge of the internet, and quite frankly have no place on a commercial retail website since there's currently no way to block them. Definitely something that if I see too many of them I'll stop coming to the site.

edit: Maybe I spoke too soon WRT not being able to block them. Adblock+ appears to recognize them as an element.

Which is why you'd tend to think that they'd find a better way to implement this thing, THIS time!

Seriously, wth is with NCIX? Can they not learn from their own history. Annoying as hell this is.

This popup is very annoying. It continues to "popup" regardless of how many times you dismiss it. It even showed itself while I was tying this!

useless popup, very annoying and only makes people mad.

NCIX, you need to fire whoever thought that would be a good idea

While idling on the site, it just appears every 10min or so.

PISS OFF

I'll get someone to fix it. It seems way to aggressive (popping up way too many times).

yeh....like using a cookie so once it's dismissed, it knows not to pop up again.

or not pop up at all for those who are actually logged into their accounts, as it's obviously unnecessary then.

Thanks Greg. The popup's aggressive behaviour seems to have subsided. It was definitely not need on the forums - maybe okay (one-time) on the sales part of the site.

Still popping up for me. So far it's been 4 times in just a little over 2 minutes signed in. Annoying as hell
