Default A Rise In Graphic/Violent Ads-It needs to be put to an end.

First, I would like to say that I thank the WI staff for keeping the ads family-friendly and appropriate.
However, I have noticed that over the passed couple weeks, there have been many ads for violent & gory game websites. And if it were just one ad, I would have reported it. But it isn't. It's SEVERAL different companies' ads. The ads themselves are too graphic for young kids. I mean, how do 7 year olds NOT get nightmares from seeing these ads that contain bloody, violent, half-dead things in them?

Since I myself cannot report ALL of these, I need the help of the community. Every time you see an ad of this nature, PLEASE report it to a mod or admin.

You should also report ANY ad of any inappropriate nature.
Thanks,
♥Maddi

Thank you for bringing this to attention. I can not because I have the ads turned off, but if you have FireFox, you can right click an ad you don't want to see, and you have the ability to turn it off

Yes, I agree. I have seen people being told "Become an Insider Insider and they are all gone."
I don't think on a family site we should have to pay our money just to avoid these violent/graphic ads. Ads are fine but these are too much.

I agree.
I don't know if the staff has any control over what ads are put onto the website, but if they do, I'd highly suggest they try to get those off.

Ads are perfectly fine. But as you said, the gory ones are AWFUL! I'm not that young, but those still are a bit freaky. This is a kid website and these ads need to be stopped. And as Lily said, I don't want to pay money to get them removed. It shouldn't cost anything.

This is very true. I know WI has limited control over the ads that occur, but shouldn't there be a setting for the types of ads that are allowed in? The site is G-rated, and I've seen ads for gory/violent games that are at LEAST PG-13.
