Advertisements are overly exaggerated on AG?

But why, because you'll only have it your way? Let's say you report on a thing and now upon good consideration it's found not something the site keepers want to act on. That's not so inconceivable, is it?

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


There are ways and means. And kids don't just use home computers.

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


You came here to play games and make a complain about the ads. I come here to post. If you don't like it, don't post, because that'll get me coming like a moth to fire.

Yes I'm aware of the money. But I guess I got the false impression that Armorgames cares about the players more then the ads and money?

But it can go either way.

AG has to care about both, due to the fact that they have to have money to run this entire website, and keep everything free. Also, that was completely uncalled for. You weren't there in the forums when they hired Ferret for us, when they could have just ignored us and carried on to let the community die.

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?


You have a couple (2-3 I believe) of people complaining, and much more people who don't care about the ads, or are fine with them. Which means you are an minority, and businesses were made to serve the majority no? Those seven pages, they are filled with much more people arguing against it, then people arguing for them to change the ads.

The biggest problem I have with the ads is that they lag up my game

I know about their need to keep things free and the cash flow. I'm curious as to why you think I was here, since your from 2012 and I'm from 2010, but I never did go forums, so your probably right. You may think it was uncalled for, but I've seen two replies from staff, and nothing has yet to happen.

I was making a statement, I meant to provide a example of how AG cares about it's community. Again, we don't have any ads on this section of the site, and we don't make them money but they STILL hired someone to try to fix the inactivity problem just because of a thread on these forums.

Notice that Ferret said:

Report it to this thread or me directly ([email protected]) by taking a screenshot of the ad. We will take it from there. :)


I don't see any screenshots in this thread (I find it interesting that there are none by you even through you are basically now the only person arguing against the ads), except that one by jbond all the way back a few pages.

Let me say this again: You are a minority, most people it seems don't care or are fine with the MMO ads, businesses are made to make money by serving the majority, you are a minority. If businesses changed just because a couple of people got angry about something, then our economy would have tanked a long time ago.

Wflag10 shut up. I have friends who can't play on this site because of those ads. AG you have a filter for curse words , why not ads?

@Eliakith I need examples of these ads. I've seen none so far. This website is PG-13, if you're friends are younger - then there is a good reason they can't play here. This is of course for legal reasons as well.

And please don't tell people to shut up. That's not a correct way to address anybody.
