Ads keep us online. Without them, we wouldn't exist. We don't have paywalls or sell mods - we never will. But every month we have large bills and running ads is our only way to cover them. Please consider unblocking us. Thank you from GameBanana <3

Go nuts. I approve - Zakk
For me, I would probably ensure that the advertisements in Gamebanana would not cause the site to be marked as a malware provider. Edit: This thread is starting to get out of hand. I didn't expect it to receive so much attention and hate at the same time. 2nd edit: This is possibly the craziest thread I have ever created so far. I'm not sure if this is a good or a bad thing...

    If I were an admin...I would try to spend more hours in the site, for the better... But what you would do can be only done by Tom, also the sites are live because of ads I think.

Yeah I suppose. I have always asked myself, does anyone ever click on advertisements? For me, I don't since their products don't seem to interest me at all :/

Yep, I installed that program not too long ago and it rocks! It sure beats that "No Ads" unlock! xD Edit: Wow, this is the only post that had a bad stamp regarding Adblock while there are other similar comments and they didn't receive that much negativity -.-

    Add an age restriction to certain areas of the site that involve violent games. And add a flag reason along the lines of point whoring or effortless skin for the sake of points.

But aren't most of the games here in Gamebanana are violent and if an age restriction is implemented, won't the popularity rate go down?

Cats everywhere! http://lovemeow.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Tashirojima-Cat-Island2-550x396.jpg Every default icon would become cat related, every background would have a cat in it! The site would be invaded with cats! The site shall be renamed.... **CatBanana**!

Well, I remember some Gamebanana users have suggested a limit on the amount of submissions being added per day although those ideas were not popular. The only method I can come up with is to have a "friendly" customizable interface that allows you to filter certain types of submissions. However, this may not work for everyone though.

Just add a flag reason for "MSPaint/GIMP colorflood". Just make sure it doesn't get use on recolors, some of them are pretty well made (such as the recolored BMS HEV hands by shelby)

    > **Posted by birjolaxew** > Oh, and dicks who use AdBlock. Exactly how does using AdBlock/Adblock Plus make someone a dick? The NoAds unlock is was pretty unnecessary if you think about it, and most people are going to nab the AdBlock/AdBlock Plus plugin for their browser(s) of choice BEFORE actually unlocking the NoAds unlock for this site. Having to pay 5k+ points to unlock something like that isn't really worth it if you can get something else that does exactly the same thing in just a few seconds/minutes.

    > **Posted by Judo** > Fix the licenses in the tools section and offer to program some "sort by" options into searches if tom would let me. What's the issue with licenses in the tools section? Could you submit a bug report? Also advanced search filters is on the list of things to-do. :)

The NoAds unlock is was pretty unnecessary if you think about it, and most people are going to nab the AdBlock/AdBlock Plus plugin for their browser(s) of choice BEFORE actually unlocking the NoAds unlock for this site. Having to pay 5k+ points to unlock something like that isn't really worth it if you can get something else that does exactly the same thing in just a few seconds/minutes. Ads is how the site is making a revenue just like Youtube and Facebook. Without ads, most websites wouldn't exists.

I'm aware of that, but having the NoAds unlock essentially does the same thing as AdBlock/AdBlock Plus installed through the browser (from my understanding, at least). Even still, the unlock itself is still overly priced, and a good majority of users probably won't bother getting it when they can just grab a plugin for their browser that doesn't require anything but a couple clicks instead of earning up a bunch of points over x-amount of time.

    As an admin, I'd lock this tgread, LOL and gag all users flaming here. Nah, I'd just have a forum Mod do it. Ok seriously, I'd 1st change the layout. The site is much too long. It at least stands to reason to use frames more. The main page kinda sucks, I'd add a cleaner main page. And the site needs a bigger banner than the current one. Plus I'd appoint more Mods to reduce workload on current ones. I know it is difficult to find deservant Mods but if a newly appointed Mod doesn't do his job well, it ain't difficult to remove him either.

All I wanted was to have a good discussion but this section is starting to remind me of Youtube now. Some of the moderators think they're better than the average users here and contributed to a lot of "flaming".

The main point he was trying to get across is that GB is set up to use ads as a source of funding the site, which the NoAds unlock and AdBlock/AdBlock Plus pretty much go around and render as moot.

    > **Posted by Ganryu** > I'm aware of that, but having the NoAds unlock essentially does the same thing as AdBlock/AdBlock Plus installed through the browser (from my understanding, at least). Even still, the unlock itself is still overly priced, and a good majority of users probably won't bother getting it when they can just grab a plugin for their browser that doesn't require anything but a couple clicks instead of earning up a bunch of points over x-amount of time. We appear to be arguing about wildly different things. My point was that anyone using the AdBlock (Plus) plugins are essentially robbing tom of revenue, revenue that could be used for new projects (such as the up-and-coming gameservers). In other words, if you use AdBlock, you are robbing the community of a better experience on the site. That is what makes you a dick. When it comes to the NoAds unlock, I very much so disagree with the fact that it's unnecessary; imagine this scenario: AdBlock doesn't exist. The NoAds unlock is the only way to remove ads on the site. The site gets ~10K visitors a day, ~200 of which are returning, registered members. Given the high price of the NoAds plugin, only around 100 of those members have it unlocked. This means that the site gets revenue from ~9.9K visitors, and are certain to get contributions from the rest (the only way to get that many points is through new submissions, meaning they contribute to the site, and are rewarded for that). Now imagine this scenario: AdBlock does exist, and ~30% of all users (to a tech site like this) have it installed. In addition, we have the NoAds unlock. We get ~10K visitors a day, ~200 of which are returning, registered members. Since the price of the NoAds unlock is high, some of these see no reason to get that many points, and instead simply use AdBlock - this means they aren't pushed to submit new submissions, and only 70 people unlock the NoAds unlock. This means we gets a profit from ~6.9K visitors, and fewer submissions than if AdBlock didn't exist. I think you see what'd happen if we completely removed the NoAds unlock.
    If no one used AdBlock, the site would earn ~$18K a year (given an average of 10 page views pr. user, and a CPM rate of $0.5). With AdBlock, that drops to ~$12.5K. This also does not account for the lacking submissions, which keep the site alive. In other words, the NoAds unlock does not serve as a replacement for AdBlock. It serves to give users a reason to gain points, and reward users who keep the site alive by submitting (and even more so those who submit high-quality submissions). Currently, the unlock system has few of these kind of unlocks, and I do believe that if we got more, the site would be more alive. By using AdBlock, you are not only robbing the site of revenue, you are also giving tom less options to keep the site alive.
