They have this annoying pop up turning people off
« on: June 12, 2016, 07:41:46 PM »
I'm not going to add this link to my list of links for people looking to learn about feline nutrition any more.  I didn't realize it until today when I was checking to make sure my link worked, before you even see the home page a pop up asking for donations shows up. 

This pop up probably turns people off, and probably not only from the Feline-Nutrition site but they may be likely to not even bother trying any of the other links after seeing that.

Completely defeating the purpose of the site, doing that.

I have written to them to tell them my opinion.

I just tried it, and, yes, they've completely revamped the whole site--including the annoyance.

I'm not sure I understand the BETA up top in the banner. What are they BETA-testing?

Oh, and it took forever to load. I think they need to change the BETA to something more useful.

That pop-up has been going on for some time.  I also find it annoying.  Even more annoying that AdBlock doesn't block it.   >:D

I didn't notice the word "beta" before.  That is a bit strange.
