Advertisements are overly exaggerated on AG?

Previously, some ads were removed, but given that they have always reappeared in one form or another, safest bet is no, they will never go away permanently. Of course, they have the last say, and I'm only speculating based on precedents.


I find this almost amusing. They can go away. Armorgames just isn't getting rid of them. Saying they never go away just makes no logical sense to me. They can ago, and if enough people want them to, they will.

Those ads certainly aren't appropriate for 13-15 year olds.

That's an opinion.

As are all things. But the way they are defined is by opinion. Every movie rating you see is an opinion. If a movie is getting an average rating of 2 stars, you can know the general opinion of people is that they don't like it. If the average rating of a movie is 4.5 stars, you know the general opinion of that movie is high.
If enough people start complaining about how they don't think these Ads are good, then you can tell, the general opinion of people is, that they aren't good and should be removed.

No, my exact reason is not that. My reason is, there have only been singular complaints a couple of times a month at most, hence there is little to action on. My reason isn't that not many people have mentioned this as offensive, then it isn't offensive. It's because there has been a lack of a flood of complains, indicating that people are unoffended due to their taste. The unoffended part does not stem from the fact that there have been less complains, there have been a lack of complains, hence indicating they are unoffended.


This is entirely true, but like I said before, I see no one asking armorgames to keep these Ads, it will do no harm, and only good, to remove them.

Furthermore, if people are offended, but don't make a stir, the onus is not on AG to automatically remove the ads. It's on people to make their complaint first.


Exactly why I'm making my stand here.

They can, but does it mean it should? It's up to AG to decide, and if they keep appearing, despite occasional past complaints, it's not at all amusing. It's AG's decision.

A small minority.

It isn't for people to voice out wanting the ads, if people remain silent about this, that's enough. It's only the people who want them removed who have to take it upon themselves to convince AG. Just because people are silent doesn't mean they don't want the ads, they just can't be arsed enough.

A minority's opinion. And so far, no, there would be little point it seems, to sacrifice revenue for

1) A small group of people.
2) A problem whereby those people can take it upon themselves to solve by themselves via a simple download.

Let's start here, if something offends you or you feel is inappropriate. Report it to this thread or me directly ([email protected]) by taking a screenshot of the ad. We will take it from there.

Dang when I last looked this up it had 3 pages of really short posts. No any more.
Ok a few things:
1. I'm sorry if I offended someone but I think some people enjoy looking at inappropriate ads *cough* nichodemus *cough*. If you want to see half-naked woman, go to the millions of websites that specialize in that stuff.
2.

Lastly, the occasional complains of such a nature are rather irksome. I have never comprehended why people are so repelled of nudity and sex.

We are repelled by it being on this gaming website.
3.
I really don't see a problem with ads unless they are the MMORPGs that show a little too much skin which is inappropriate for kids seeing it and irritates girl gamers

I never thought about what girl gamers thought...................interesting.
4.
Hey, ever here of this cool new thing called ADBLOCK? Seriously, it doesn't cost money. Besides, if ads are sexual, and there ARE under 13s that don't register, their parents can get adblock, or just watch their kids better.

Ad Block? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA........GENIOUS!!!!!
Ok that's all.
Toodaloo Chaps!

Sorry for the double post but I am reporting any of the Rise Of Mythos ads. Sorry for no screenshot I can't get it to work for some reason.

I think that the reactions on those adds are overly exaggerated.

If you took your kid/or if your parents took you to a museum, chances are they see even more skin or even a nipple!

I do. Unabashedly. I come here to play games, not to look at porno. That doesn't mean I'm going to be bothered by them.

Porno is extreme. There has never been pornography on Armor Games.

The only adds that bother me are the ones that pop up in front of the game and make you wait 5 seconds before you close it out.

So I assume it's only a matter of time before I start to see things clear up?
