I liked the Thor trailer. I don't have television and was looking forward to the movie, so it was exciting to see it here. It's also nice to know the AG crew also enjoys sharing things like this, it makes them feel more personable.

Honestly, advertisements will be, they're not worth complaining about. Many other flash game sites don't have the strong community support or consistent site-wide structure that AG has. It's much easier to find specific games or sort through lists of new games here than it is anywhere else; sites like Kongregate (as mentioned above) have no problem satling a list of top games with a bunch of slapped-together mess. Ain't nobody got time for that.

On a related note (sorry for the double-post, an Edit button to amend the first would have been better), citing that AG needs the ads for money and then telling people to use ad blocker is counter-intuitive. If you block the ads, they don't get money. If they don't get money, they have to advertise more to the people who don't block ads. If you want the number of ads to decrease (or at least stop increasing), don't block the ads; just accept them and let AG get paid for their efforts.

main fact is they put a add right in with the games on the main page and this is armorsgames not armorgameswithads

up-till now all ads had there own place and games had there own place

all there doing is spamming our game section with ads at this point adding this

if they want to add movie trailers fine then make a section for it just like ads and games have but don't go spamming out games section with this crap.

any one who wants to see movie trailers can easily do so in another section and yes there is plenty out there who wouldn't mind seeing them my self included.

with out considering us they just tossed it in there and waited for the repercussions instead of asking us here on the forums in the first place

The movie trailer is not present in any games category on the website; it's on the main page, where -all- updates of -all- kinds go.

What's your definition of 'spam', exactly? One movie trailer after hundreds, if not thousands, of game updates is 'spam'?

And, um... what repercussions? Making more money so that the site can continue going? If they had of asked, most of us would agree that that's a worthwhile goal.

Plus, it's not like the movie trailers are disguised or tricking you in some way. It didn't show up as a Thor game with ratings and turn out to be a trailer instead; it directly says [MOVIE TRAILER] in nice big capital letters. Saying that's somehow 'spamming' when you can easily ignore it and choose any other game is like saying that every game you choose not to play is also 'spamming', per your logic. It takes up the same amount of space, it's equally clearly defined, and it's equally able to be ignored.

That's not how advertising works, ArmorGames still has to get paid for ads no matter what. If everyone on ArmorGames had ads blocked ArmorGames will still get paid for them.

I'm sure if you had a job you would want to get paid too.
