Try Not to Click an Ad in Anger

Post by Darkwing on 2010-11-10, 10:52

So some of you may remember this battle from last year (exact same stunt, no communication, nothing)

But yeah, we now got big old ugly ads on the top of every page. Send your angry regards to FM once again

You do know that in the admin panel there is a thing that you can shut off ads.

Well, Typlo says it's just a test ATM, but I know they really wanna have ads on all the time (that and it's apparently in their contract with google) and then we have to pay to remove ads. Now you know what, I can understand, we get a lot of good stuff for free with FM, however, they don't communicate this with us. They don't give us any notice that ads will be appearing, they just do. And not only that, we can't control where the ads are placed. Cause I don't mind have ads at the bottom or something, but on top just makes us look like some cheap porno site or something

Yeah.........

In other news about the ads.

Justin Bieber does not have a crush on me, thats a lie, if he did he would be gay (not saying thats wrong, or anything, but yeah, that would end alot of little girls dreams, lol)

Cian did not send me a messenge, i never signed up for that sight.

I do not want a blow up sex doll, WTF do they think this site is putting ads on this site like that.

Edward is never going to be my lover he is Bella's lover, and i am not gay (again thats not wrong to be gay, i am not though) why does this site think i am a girl......

I am not the lucky visitor, i have gotten that on like 5 other sites, and also, there have been more than 100 visitors to this site, i am not the 100th

Shall i go on?

Come on FM, WTF does FM need to be so stupid.

With adblock, you can get it down to just a small line. No biggies, apart from forumotion being unnice people.

And don't worry guys, I'm helping in the matter some. As I said to the FM guys, I understand ads, we get a lot of good stuff for free here, but the adds need to be more subtle, appropriate and we should be allowed to decide where on the page they go. And FM should communicate with us when they plan to do things like implement ads

Yeah I know and I went through this a year ago too seeing everyone attack Forumotion over this. The thing I been trying to get the members there to understand is that until they stop attacking like children, forumotion won't even listen to legit suggestions about it

I think Fm has so many strongly worded letters currently that you would be lumped into the ignore list of immature children

I personally am fighting for more appropriate ads that don't interfere with the place making it look junky or anything and for the ads to be more subtle and for us to have the options to put it at say the bottom of the forum or something

Well so far there has been no official announcement about it and nobody seems to be able to get a hold of Typlo and even the Forumotion site staff have no idea what's going on. The only thing that is known is that three versions of what's going on has been said and Typlo briefly said yesterday to hang tight as it's just a test. But that's still nothing cause they did a "test" last year and yeah, ultimately no one knows what's going on at all.

Typlo is the only actual Forumotion staff member that is also on the forum to my knowledge. I'm not entirely sure what his position in forumotion is, but I believe he is fairly high up in their ranks
