Advertisements are overly exaggerated on AG?

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

I would only guess that any reports will then be judged on their merits, not necessarily lead to any action as such... (wistfully whistling smiley here)

Good sir, we have a seven-page thread of complaints with examples provided and we were just given the infinite wisdom to post complaints to solve the problem. That carrot sure is dangling close, isn't it?

We do judge a lot of the skins ourselves and have asked partners for adjustments in the past, but the choices are not always clear.  We have kids of our own and we all have different opinions on the ads.  Community input will be a good variable into our discussions :)

I honestly don't see how the ads here are any worse than what most kids watch on television. I think the whole situation has been blown out of the water.

I think it was suggested to file complaints by providing a screenshot of the offending material. Emphasis again mine:

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

You'd think it was asked for since it would give the keepers something to work with, wouldn't you. I guess it follows you'll then need to be able to deal with the occasional "Sorry, but ArmorGames by their standards doesn't find any harm in this to warrant any action."

You have to understand their stance on the matter. The administrators rely on the advertisements to pay for the free stuff on the site as well as site maintenance and like. If an ad pops up and it doesn't extraordinarily bad (which is a totally subjective matter), it isn't going to be removed. That's how things work and you need to understand that.

Like we can control them much other than user settings that are so easy to get around.

Don't foist it upon them, or even worse, cloister them when they're hitting puberty. Start younger, educate younger, let them mature younger.

You just got 7 pages of it :P

That does indeed worry me.

Just because TV has it bad, doesn't mean we have to have it bad. People always use the excuse "Ain't any worse then anything else." "Ain't as bad as what he's doing." ect ect. Which is totally untrue. Just because it happens elsewhere doesn't mean we have to do it, or it's an excuse we can do it.

Like we can control them much other than user settings that are so easy to get around.

The right user settings are very very impossible to get around.

Don't foist it upon them, or even worse, cloister them when they're hitting puberty. Start younger, educate younger, let them mature younger.

But really here, I come to play games, not to get parenting advice.

Read my other post:

It isn't about excuses. It's about subjectivity and moneh. $$$
