Default Pop Blocker Bypassing Examples

We're getting feedback on examples of our bypass solutions from a handful of providers. Before we publish the page live, I'd like to get some feedback from the peanut gallery as well.

http://www.adoutput.com/page.cfm?max_examples

Feedback definition : Ideas and constructive comments; not various ways I can hurt myself. Thank you.

Well now, my right level security seems to work well. Sorry, page is now viewable without access.

$25 for a single domain . We also have a lot of provider interest, which is regretfully slowing us down quite a bit. We're still hoping we'll be ready by monday, but we may have to push it off another week.

Hey! My google toolbar did not block your pops, your script really works well if it bypasses google toolbar in my opinion. I allready blocked 30073 pops with the google toolbar

i agree...

but just curious, does it alter the ad code in a way that sponsors may object too?

It doesn't physically alter the provider's code in any way, however It modifies browser functions that are often used in popups. We've been very careful with how ads are displayed, and so far have had no provider's object. If you are going to convert a provider's popup as a layer ad, you should ask permission first. We'll have a list of providers that have pre-agreed.

is it possible to change the look of the layer ad? can we make it look like a regular IE window?

can you make the layer draggable like a real window?

is there going to be a bulk discount for multiple domains?

can providers add the code to their own so they are basically paying on our behalf? (I imagine that would benefit them massively)

As you host the frame graphics, you can modify it to whatever you'd like. They need to be the same dimensions though.

The #1 question I get from everyone. We had the code in there, but we were trying to make the solution as lean as possible. Maybe we'll make it an option.

$60 for multiple domains owned by the same individual or company.

I'm not at liberty to say whom, but we've been talking to a couple of provider's about this. The solution would be them either placing the code in their distribution system or purchasing a bulk license where their users get a free copy (that only works with their ads).

I definately think that the option should be there to make the layer draggable, and possibly minimisable if you can get that working nicely. I think that a non movable layer may confuse / scare some people away.

$60 is an excellent price..put me down for a copy on march 1st

If a rotator for interstitial type ads could be created that would be nice too. Notice you already have a popup rotator.

Excellent work Scott.

You've provided a great service/product to the webmasters and hopefully you will be financially rewarded for your effort.

Great job!
