Getting Rid Of Advertisements
 
Alright, so I'm totally aware of how the advertisements help make WI easier to pay for, but I don't like how they have fake RPG games, and innapropriate advertisements all around the site.
A lot of the RPG games are actually Trojan Viruses, which follow your keystrokes to hack whatever site you go on. I know a Pokemon RPG I've seen on here have that.
Another advertisement is a Vampire/Werewolf RPG game, which shows disgusting images of Vampires and Werewolfs, and not suited for younger kids on this site.
I believe the advertisements should be taken off, or controlled for the safety of everyone on WI. Please post what you think.

Just provide them with a link (if you feel comfortable) date & time... which banner ad it was on. And a screen shot is most helpful. :)

If you see an inappropriate ad, please simply pm a staff member per Miss Gnomie's post. Thank you. Different ads pop up at different times. If the staff is not made aware, we can't do anything about it. smitchell

I totally agree! However, I never click those ads. Justin can't controll them, though. He can only suggest for Google to take away that specific ad. At least, I'm pretty sure.

I never click them either, but I'm sure people on the forum have done it before. ;)

Yeah... I'm sure it has happened. I can only trust the WI Gear ad. :2funny:

I think WI can remove specific ads ... but they do need some to help pay for the site.

I know that, and I support having WI get help to stay up and running, but I don't like how site advertisements with Viruses or Scams can show up (or the Vampire/Werewolf RPG) with so many younger users on the site. (I am young, I just want to look out for the way younger crowd. xP)
