No ads right by the game... it is distracting!

I think that ads should be at the bottom of the screen instead of right there in the way of the game.Sometimes I click on it when I am in an intense part of my game and I have to start the level again or something. Also, many people, including me, have trouble concentrating on the game when they are there!

Does anyone agree?

Yeah, I agree. There are lots of times I would have beaten certain levels of games, especially the shooting games, if it weren't for those ads, I mean, I know that those people just want to make money like everyone else, but do they really have to distract the people who don't give a dam* about what they're advertising; like when they advertise stuff like cars and real estate and insurance on websites that are meant for kids. I really hate those, but I guess keeping them away is what Pop-up Blockers are for.

i totally understand. I have had the problem as well, though it hasnt been as deadly to me...
my advice:
USE FIREFOX that way it opens the ad in a new tab rather than taking your current window elsewhere. then you just have to frantically close the new tab and resume whatever it was you were doing.

probably killing things. lots of blood and guts.

yeh it is quite hard to concentrate say on a game that requires quick reactions when there is 2 flashing ads either side of the game

Isn't the idea of ads you notice them?

I don't think moving ads to a place where they do not distract -> are not on your screen does great things for the ad-clicks

yeah... it's so easy to click on the ads by accident... at least don't put the ads right next to the game, maybe on the side of it (not touching the game area)

Well, I don't think they will be taken down, because, doesn't the site get paid for putting these advertisement? I wouldn't put them down, if that takes away the income of the site.

I see where you are going, but there are already ads at the top (that one that says DO SOMETHING! WHAT?" so there isn't really any room, and I actually don't have problems with actually clicking on the ads.

We don't want to get rid of the ads, just move them so that they aren't right next to the game.
