How to Turn Off Your Pop Up Blocker

Bardic Web's Instant Messaging System Uses Pop-Ups

Our on-site instant messaging system allows you to talk to staff and other members in real time. You can see that someone is on-line, and send them a message immediately. Having the reply pop up is the easiest way to ensure that you get it.

In order for this system to work, you will need to disable your pop-up blocker. Bardic Web will never use pop-ups for advertising: the instant messenger is the only thing on the site that uses pop-ups. We have no interest in annoying our customers.
