    Hmm, you shouldn't be - we don't advertise anywhere I don't think!

    You will sometimes get popups for surveys and stuff, and those are usually surveys that we're running ourselves to get your insights and feedback. :)
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    Might be something to do with you’re computer/phone , as I’ve never had anything like that pop up before 🤔
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    Do you have an adblocker installed on your browser @Morgyn007? If so it's that.

    If you don't and you don't recognise the name, I'm not sure where it's coming from but it wouldn't be from The Mix. Might be good to do a virus scan or something. :)

    Do you have something called anti-virus software @Morgyn007? If so, if you click on that, there should be an option to scan it. Also, just out of interest, what kind of things do these ads look like? :)

    This is unusual @Morgyn007 (though not saying you don't experience this!) and we wouldn't recommend clicking on links to download anything you don't purposefully wish to download!! <3

    Okay @Morgyn007. Hopefully the staff team can help - this is not something I have seen previously :p

    It's most likely the cookie pop up that the discussion boards asks you to confirm which your ad-blocker might be blocking. If you're comfortable disabling it and accepting cookies, it should hopefully resolve this for you. If you'd like to find out a bit more info about cookies (not the yummy cookies!), you can do so here - https://www.themix.org.uk/about-us/cookies-policy

    Let us know how you get on @Morgyn007 :)
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
