Do you think that advertisements are overly exaggerated? "Roll over" adds are so annoying, how are we supposed to play if every time we move our mouse, there's a popping advertisement in your screen? And the adds on the sides of the home page are, how should I say... Inappropriate? I mean, I know you want your game to get all the attention, but here's a tip: You don't necessarily need half nude people on your add to attract gamers. Duh.
Let me know what you guys think about that!

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 (Ferret@ArmorGames.com) 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.

1) If you are going to argue for something..don't ignore what people say.

2) Print screen.

Yes, you can hit the "Print Screen" button, then cut/paste it into MSpaint. Save it as a JPG or BMP file, then upload it to Imgur.com, post the link here.

Or press Start+PrntScr until the screen goes dark and it will automatically save it under screenshots on your computer.

Well, close. Your files are on your harddrive, not the internet. You need to upload them to imgur.com, and then post the URLs.

I'm afraid print screen doesn't work for me.

And before you ask, no, the button works perfectly, it isn't sticky, and I didn't drop any radioactive waste on it. It doesn't copy to clipboard, right click + paste does nothing. Ctrl + V does nothing either.

If you are using windows print screen should work. You need to ctrl-v inside a paint program though, like mspaint.

If you are using a Mac you can do shift-command-4 and then click-drag your mouse around what you want to screen cap. It saves to the desktop.

LOL

Meed, I've had it (often) that I couldn't get the printscreen key to work. There's free software out there that allows you to make screenshots, just do a web search on screenshot or "screen capture" or so. I currently have no program to recommend to you over another.

Okay I never actually wrote in the forum here... although i've been playing a long time on this site... nonetheless this was, is and probably always will be my favourite site...
but seriously this new advertisement is getting on my nerves...

C'mon... really? I have to wait 45!!!! seconds just to start loading a game?

I mean I don't mind 15 seconds or so... but 45 seconds for a stupid world of tanks advertisement you can't even skip... thats just plain bs

45 seconds is the exception to the rule, we promise. I rarely get a very long ad, and when I do... I usually can skip. We've been working hard on making this a better experience.

Not sure why these kind of ads are needed. Are these forced ads or based on the users surfing?
