And now the real question - is there a way to stop this thing appearing? I have
had it three times already this morning.

Annoying pop-ups turn people off, this is not a good idea.

If you join the mailing list, the pop-up will stop.

That is not good. I'm not signing up to spam by email just to stop spam by

I don't know, I want to see what my customers are seeing, so I joined.

So do I. But I don't need to be told what I already know, and probably long
after I have already learnt it.

That aside, I don't mind that they have a mailing list. But if I say no to
it, why keep trying to force it on me? If need be I can sign up and set a filter
to just send the messages to spam to delete them without them bothering me. That
has the downside that I might end up auto deleting other BL messages, but maybe
that is not a bad thing either.

Where do you see that? Been on since about 7 this morning and not once here.

They seem to be randomly popping up.

Seen it once yesterday looking at a set page.
Not seen it since, though I visited other parts of the catalogue.
Randomly random I’d say

Is it really necessary for Bricklink to advertise the Bricklink website when
I'm already on the Bricklink website? SUPER FREAKING ANNOYING!!!!! I'm
on this website like 10 hours a day, I don't need to join the mailing list.

We feel really isolated - we haven't seen one of these popups since coming
on board at about 7 am. Are you guys all logged in? Do you have pop-ups blocked
in your browser? We don't want the message but it seems silly that some are
seeing it and others are not.

Hah, now I don't feel so left out . Maybe they are picky as to who they want
on their on mailing list - like a customised perfume it will work for some...

Haven't had it so far, fingers crossed..

Doesn't seem the best way to handle a privacy/marketing situation. Why not
just put a box in preferences to say yes or no to the mailing list and point
that out with an announcement. Who actually dreams these things up?

I've only had it once, but I do have pop ups blocked so it's kind of
weird that it got through. I have always thought Bricklink should advertise.
Just not on Bricklink.

I got the message this morning as well.

I know I have been banging on about advertising, but this is insular!

I meant external advertising.

Insular as in advertising only to the existing Bricklink membership.

I didn’t make the link

Outside ads on websites would be nice.

Mean time, this is free or next to it and if they can just get a big portion
of the people who are already members to join the mailing list, the mailing list
may pull customers in more often. It feels weird to those of us who are sellers
and forum regulars because we come every day anyway, but a huge number of people
only come now and then. An email a week or so could do a lot to keep Bricklink
on those people's minds.

Yes.
I thought it could even be useful for us, who have bookmarks or always opened
tabs on BL and never see the frontpage announcements

unfortunately it is only to existing BL users though.

Anybody know where this setting is located? Or is this function only available
though popup (which is a ridiculous idea, but knowing Bricklink, I'm just
open-minded)

I just got one too; on mobile. It is truly pathetic.

To the "management": what you are doing is the brick-and-mortar equivalent of
throwing a bunch of gaudy fliers at customers as they walk through your door.
It's amateurish and reeks of desperation.

What on earth are you thinking? LEGO is a product that, for the most part, sells
itself. Why are you wasting time on this nonsense? Just keep the site running
and make it easy for buyers to buy and sellers to sell. Advertise externally
if you must, but for Pete's sake keep the site free of this crass, pointless
clutter!

Why is the Sky always falling on this Forum, just list & sell more bricks! Easy
formula...

Do you realise that this mailing list pop-up slows the process down (very slightly)?
