In the past 2 weeks I've seen armorgame's ads become more spam-like. What used to be only mmorpg's and other gaming website now is "you're the 999,999th vistor, click to claim your prize" Those are really distracting to me snice they flash and bounce around I can't focus on what really matters, the game. It also downgrades the site creditiblity, I think dan should get rid of them

Hey man, no spaming. Im a webmaster too, but I hate those spam ads, they give you spyware and viruses to whoever visits. Besides dan gets paid with the MMORPG site that show here, but those banner ads are none the less, annoying!

I hate the ad for the best buy card, it is always there 'you have been specially chosen to recive this gift!', 'you have 199, 198, 197, 196... seconds to reply!'

that one gets annoying, and I don't make wepages, but i do know why the ads are there, just some(like the smiley face one) could really go(or at least be moved from the top where my mouse usually passes...)

So, the spam ads... aren't armorgames approved? Or are they actually put in because some one paid for the ad space?

Sorry if I sound mentally impaired.

ya some of them are bad, but there is a reason, he needs the funding to keep armorgames up and running, without the funds from those he wouldn't have anytime to work on because he would have to work a whole ton more, so even those are annoying you may have to put up with them if you want this to still be a site

Those few pop-ups are nasty boogs. I mean I've got this laptop locked down and they seem to get through. I'll research this...
