Default Answered: Inappropriate Ads

Over the past few weeks, I have noticed some ads with inappropriate pictures on them. I don't think they're suitable for younger children on WI. Do you agree? Do you know if Justin is working to get rid of these ads? Please post!

Unfortunately, we don't get to review the advertisements before they appear here on WI. We have a contract with "Google Ad Sense" to provide us with advertising to help off-set the server costs of running WI. They take care of dealing with the advertisers and then they send the advertisements directly to WI.

We are signed up for "Family Friendly" ads, but, as you all know, sometimes ads make it through that we wouldn't classify that way. If you ever see an advertisement that is inappropriate, please notify a member of the staff. As soon as we know about it, we can ask Justin to go in and block that particular ad, so it will never show up on WI again.

Yes someone is working on it . I PMed Lakrose about one of these things and she said she'd add it to the list of ads that need to be removed. I don't know when they'll quit, but I know they will one day.

If you see an inappropriate ad, just flag a post by it and a mod will see if it's inappropriate.

Default Re: Inappropriate Ads

I understand peoples concerns about certain ads . However, inappropriate ads for children are all over the place....billboards, TV, radio etc. I am sometimes shocked by some of the things I see on the disney channel. LOL I know that WI has an option for people that don't want to view the ads. I never pay much attention to the ads but I do understand peoples concerns and I also understand how WI needs those ads to keep the website free for everyone.

Default Re: Inappropriate Ads

I liked to backup lauraanne here. Justin and everyone else on the site hates the ads as much as we do and would get rid of all of them permanetly if they could right now. See, when you get a website from a company it may or may not cost money depending if you get a domain name or not. [A domain name is when the company's name who gave/sold you the sight doesn't appear on address of your site.] Webkinzinsider has a domain name which can cost more money. When you pay for a site it usually costs so much a month. You may or may not have noticed but near some of the ads it use to or still says "Donate to WI and make all these ads go away." To get rid of all the ads permanatly it costs more money so to all the people on WI who donate I liked to say thanks because most of that money is going toward getting rid of the ads most likely. And with the economy the way it is today it is harder for people to give more money toward a website. Just wanted everyone to understand how it works.
