I think it is ironic that the managing editor of a website takes zero responsibility for oppressive and annoying ads on this site, then pleads to our conscience to leave them on.

Let me be the first welcome you to this site as a new member! :) j/k

But if the ads back then for Scarlet Blade don't rank as #1 in most obnoxious...

I would disagree-

Its bad form to have flashing ads popping up on me- I still see Ads (been looking at Neverwinter for a few days on the main area) but I am not swamped with them.

Any site that makes me remove my adblocker is a site I will never use. I am here creating content for this forum which is my freely given time which adds to the overall discussion of the site and brings more people. Tose of us who discuss things, debate things and converse (even troll and fanboy like crazy) are doing our part and are the reasonpeople come here as opposed to ads or articles.

 

Let the lurkers be overrun with ads. I am doing my part imho.

Sorry, but that is one batshit crazy of an answer!

Websites are not beholden to the traffic that use the forums, it is a platform which allows us, the community to band together and talk about what we love. As such these features cost money, money that the website gains from ad revenue. So, by all means talk and engage on the forums all you like, you are NOT doing your part to support the channel, in reality you are taking up resources and bandwidth which is harming the site. I mean c'mon, how much of a nusiance is it to you to look at a freaking ad. Its not like IGN who have a 4 min ad in front of a 1 min video or anything.

 

I am producing content for free.

Content that draws other users especially those who disagree with my points.

Absent of content (i.e. Forums) all you have left is reviews, articles and ad. IF thats enough to keep a site like this going that is great-   can discuss things many, many places on the free internet- I choose to use mmorpg.com because of the posters here (not the articles and reviews and ads) and others are the same. Without the posters, I wouldnt be here. 

Batshit Crazy? Dude, I knwow someone who runs a website far smaller this this one and makes plently of money (enough to make it a ful time job) a websiter as popular as this one is doing okay I am sure and mainly this is due to the discussion coming from other posters creating content for free.

 

If intrusive ads were not the norm- I would not use ABP. But I do. If you do not- Good for you. I think YOU are batshit crazy for not running ABP which actually secures your system .

If you wish to truly contribute to this site, BUY something from the ads, your post count won't help to pay any website bills, only the cash in your pocket will do that.

 

I have bought nearly every subscription MMORPG that has come along with only a few exceptions.

The reason this forum can garner so much business from advertisers is due to the very high activity on this forum...Which comes from the forum...Which is generally user created.

Seeing flashing ads and pictures of dragons being slain are not enough (regardless) to even bother clicking on. 100% of every MMO I see advertised outside of F2P I already know about. Most of us in this hobby are never learning of any new games from ads- Most of us also know that ads are totally deceptive regardless (not just with MMOs)-

 

As I also said before- I know someone who makes a living running a website which has no user created content. Its very small and not a nation/worldwide type venture- He does fine and pays writers on top everything else that goes along with operating a website.

I wont buy shit from a F2P game and there are no P2P games advertised that I am already not aware of.

 

Want money from me? See coffee mugs. maybe T-shirts. Until then the best I am giving will be in content I crete for free that adds to discussion and thus more hits .

While we do greatly appreciate everyone who posts on our forums and takes part in our community, if we couldn't pay people to create content on this site, the site wouldn't exist. I can tell you that for a fact. Simply posting on our forums isn't going to keep the lights on for us.

Everyone here works hard every day to produce content for the site and my team (community) and I work hard to keep these forums a decent place to have discussions. None of us work for free and if we didn't have ad revenue, we wouldn't be able to do any of this.

Though you're free to do what you want (we aren't going to try and stop anyone from blocking ads), I would encourage you to think about that for a moment.

Yeah- I appreciate response and also understand the situation...

I know this isnt a suggestion thread but why not open up a 'store' with coffee mugs and other mmoprg.com memorabilia? I really would buy stuff...You would also probably get a better profit margin from me than you would by me simply looking at ads .

I am serious also- And  understand your position as well. I love this site and would support it directly through some sort of online store. I would love an mmorpg.com coffee mug and if it was large enough and made with quality I would pay a pretty nice sum for it.

Give us the option to support you directly without having to turn of ABP-

 

You mean this store?

Yeah =P

 

I didnt even know that existed honestly. BUT you need to carry more than games. If I am missing a section its because I am time crunched and trying to multi-task.

From now on I will buy any MMOs from your store- But since I primarily only play sub games and am not planning on buying eso or ws (Maybe WS...IDK) its kind of a missed opportunity.

Anyhow, thanks for the link- I really had no clue that even existed.

EDIT- Hmmm, looks like you have single player games as well- I  might be using this sooner than I thought.

Perhaps you could put in a subscription model by which people pay x per month for a ad free service ? Of course you will then see threads appearing guaranteeing you will fail within a month and how you should be instead set up a mini transactions shop selling post and browse bundles.

This will cause a spin off group to emerge who will energetically defend the rights of the ads and how not having ads destroys the mmorpg.com immersion. Battle lines will be drawn and the angst will flow.

But still perhaps a small sub model for those who want to avoid the ads.
