I don't think it's you. I've noticed some annoyance in the ads as well.

I think they are referring to the width of the ad bar on top

It looks like we're not using a fixed style Google ad anymore, I dun know if this is something we can fix?

It's getting... stranger... :confused:


1) Imagine the site was being visited by Google Bots and Shlup's Yahoo Spiders, how would you combat this threat?

Oh my God, it's happening! Why didn't they listen? We tried to warn them!

*boom!*

They're coming... They're coming!

*shotgun clicks empty*

Oh no... no! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

These are absolutely messed up. I can't ad-block them and even worse, they're sticking out of the rest!:crying: Oh well, as long as you keep the boards alive.

We are currently addressing this issue. Does anyone have any other feedback about the advertisements that they would like to point out?

Please let me know of anymore advertisement discrepancies.

The top EoFF logo is suddenly centred now, instead of aligned to the left, and that's bad. The "find your game" ads are also breaking up the forum style. Furthermore, I think they're getting over the top now, with both flash ads and graphics. I absolutely hate flash ads, so I indiscriminately block all of them.

Even more so, there's a textfield that can't be blocked.

Okay, I got this Adblock Plus thing that Cid mentioned....and nothing happened. Still all the same ads that were there before. Yes I have restarted Firefox.

You need to subscribe to an area where it can block ads you see. Click on Tools > Addons > and click on options on Adblock Plus and fool around with it. I subscribed to USA easylist.

Then if you see any, right click the image and choose 'adblock'. It's most effective if you remove the filename and maybe some folders from the url and add a * as a wildcard if you know the site is only going ot be serving advertising images.
