Well played tom, well played...

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

...but enough is enough. I have finally found out how to get rid of those ugly empty ad spaces and top bar links. I just used µBlock's element picker to create custom rules to hide those. Now the site feels a bit more clean. Maybe you can with AdBlock too. I haven't tested. Now I must find out how to customize the CSS... EDIT: Oh, I've just noticed. Threads are only giving 10 points now. It was about time.

    You can do it with Adblock. yep Also the mobile advertisements are terrible, they do the whole "YOU HAVE A PHONE VIRUS CLICK OKAY FOR FREE SCREENING" dialogue box... Why?

    I don't know if it still does, but back when I first registered there were a lot of ads that would hijack my browser and this continued until I discovered ABP. I'm talking full-on redirect-your-whole-browser-and-close-all-tabs hijacks going on. I'm not risking my computer getting viruses with an ad history like that. I love the site and I always have, but if giving you guys ad revenue means I'm at risk for getting malware, I'll have to abstain.

That's part of the reason for a lot of people using adblocking extensions in their browsers these days. There are so many ads out there that behave in a malicious nature, and a lot of people would rather not have to deal with whatever problems might end up happening because of some shitty ad that's loaded with some form of malware. I understand that there's an unlock for the site that allows users to disable ads by purchasing it, but let's be fucking realistic here; who the hell is going to actually buy that when they could easily do the same thing by installing something like the AdBlock/AdBlock Plus extensions in their browser? I'm not against using ads for site revenue, but when it comes to some of the shit that comes with various ads anymore these days, I'd rather just stick to using a browser extension that covers every site I go to instead of having to work for a site-specific unlock that would honestly be of no use outside of GameBanana.

There are so many ads out there that behave in a malicious nature, and a lot of people would rather not have to deal with whatever problems might end up happening because of some shitty ad that's loaded with some form of malware. That reminds me. Did you know that once upon a time, the Rule 34 Paheal site was blocked for being malicious? Google detected something that contained malware on the page, and it was... an ad. gg no re Even having adblockers didn't prevent that since it was your browser who was blocking you.

    That's the advantage of having Ripe before it turns into Unlocks. I got all the Unlocks (when they first came) since I was a Ripe member so no reason to use the Ad Blocker.
