    In the past few days I've been getting "you have won" things pop up on BYC and automatically take me to another tab. I'm sure it's only BYC that's doing this because all the other websites that I visit are fine. I was ok with it to start with but it's beginning to drive me nuts.

    It's fake for sure, but why is it happening? And is anyone else having this problem?

    Thank you
    ~Jet

    forum. I’ll find it and link it if I can

    wink.gif Also by joining the ranks of PFM.
    stock_right1.png Removes all advertisements. Speeds up the loading of the pages 10 fold as well.

    So many many other perks as well.
    smiley_emoticons_bier.gif Tons of Americans spend $20 on a single case of beer, but that would be better spent on a membership that gives you 3 months of Ad free and uninterrupted quality BYC time.
    stock_right1.png It costs money to run a website. Advertisers pay those bills & programmers, staff and other operation costs. But having a PFM membership, not only helps the site prosper, but will also spoil you with all the ADD-ON perks you will have upon entering the ranks of being a PFM.
