How to properly configure adblock for this site? When I try it on the main page (I'm using chrome), it either doesn't work, or it blocks the entire page, leaving a grey/black page with nothing visible at all.

I just installed adblock, never been using it before. Seems to work fine on other sites, like blocking ads in youtube vids, etc.

That gets you all the sb adds.   Click on addblock then options then customize and put these in your customer filters and bam no more sb adds.

In marketing any attention is good attention. Making threads like this, regardless of how correct the reason is, is making the marketing a success and can only lengthen the amount of times the ads are up.

Message the admins if you have a problem with the ads. Do that and ad block to get your point across.

I honestly think the OP is a "seed" but if well. Seriously, if they can take a game like SB and get people to actually talk about it I have to tip my hat to them.

I really don't see whats so bad about them. Yeah they a blatantly Sex adds but i don't really see them as children. Maybe i don't see it because im a girl so whatever.

 

I think you should have a sitdown with your girlfriend and explain exactly what shes being offended by. They are ad's, does she get angry when you go to any other site that is showing a woman in a bikini that talks about weight loss. If it really bothers you that much. Bring up the site and show her specifically what site it is, What Game its for, and that No your not browsing kiddie porn.

Because i can.

I doubt that's your reasons. Most people would have no problems communicating why they are there. Maybe you are offended because they turn you on in some way, when they shouldn't.

or the spouses are insecure and angry because their boys watch pretty girls lol.

 

or maybe the spouses is secure and can have a critical discussion with the partner. lol, talk about beeing judgemental just because a person dosent share the same perspective. 

Mymmo... All I have seen you do since the OP posted this is try to justify reasoning behind an obvious problem.

The problem isn't ads though. Here is the fact of the matter on the ads in question.

1. Can you see a nipple, a vagina or a penis?

NO

2. Are the characters in the ads engaged in any type of sexual act?

NO

3. Are these images pornographic in anyway?

NO

 

So what we have here are some anime styled women in skimpy clothing advertising an MMO designed around all classes being women.... that's it. Nothing more, and nothing less.

Now anyone not open minded enough, or mature enough to look past the ads, or find a way to block the ads, has much bigger issues in thier personal lives than a few half naked anime chicks.

As far as the "partners" in question. I would have to 100% agree, if you are a man, and you aren't mature enough to stand up to your GF as a gamer and say look, "This is one of my favorite information sites for gaming, and I apologize for the half clothed female advertisments, these are only temp and for now I just have to deal with it."  Then you have some issues in the relationship, you have an issue with the "partner" and you might have an issue as a man, I would seek out professional assistance in this matter because I am sure it will help.

I would also try to read a book, or at the very least branch out and learn about other cultures. Asian cultures in general do not view sex or sexuality like we do in the west (even euro are more open minded than the west when it comes to sexual depictions), sex to them is not so much of a taboo subject matter as we make it out. They see no issues with the way these women are drawn, to them it is just art.

Step 1 - Mature Up

Step 2- Dump the Partner

Step 3- ???

Step 4- Profit!

May as well get rid of the TV and the movies too. These ads are a joke compared to the stuff on those.

People like to take ridiculous stances on everything online these days just for the sake of doing it.

I remember a bath salt reference in one of the MMORPG.com articles that got one person up in arms about it. I'm not even entirely sure these people are all that offended by it, so much as being bored out of their minds, just grabbing whatever 'cause' the can come across online. That or they are desperately searching for an identity by taking random "stances" on things because they are as deep as a piss puddle

Exactly, this is the internet. This isn't some breaking news, you can go to a million sites today and have REAL porn thrown in your face all over the place.

One of the most highly watched Cable series to date Game of Thrones is full of sex, full nude shots, rape, you name it.

Movies are the same story. This kind of thread just kills me.... really it does. Whenever I read something like this it makes me cry inside for the state of humanity.

Ah yes. I love when someone have done a marthon of Mad men and believe they know anything about advertising.  

You are saying that the ads are not the problem when its in fact what it is. Have you missed it? 

1.  are you suggesting  that without nipple, vagina or penise its ok to do whatever in advertising? ask dr pepper what they think about it. A hint for you,they did exclude one major part of their consumer base. They didnt like it

2. picture+text makes it what? ask nike what they think about it. A hint for you, they did exclude one major part of their consumer base. They didnt like it

3. que? in the text under you are suggesting its pornographic. So whats your take? you cant have both.  

And what books are you reading? Can you find a book about all the americans populations sexuality? And could you please send the reference to the academia because they are wasting a lot of resources to understand just small parts of the population. You seems to sit on a information bomb that will revolutionize the society. Or you are just making straw men when you didnt even have to. 

And what me, the OP and whoever else do in our relationship, it  dosent concern you at all. I dont know on what praesidialis you are sitting on, but man it must be fun to dictate what others are supposed to. I do however believe that must of us are not paying you any attention, because we dont care about your opinoins on how we are gonna do in our daily life. Thank you very much for you.

So for you.

1. dont generalize about a continents behaviour. Its rather strange in this context.

2.  play your game of choice.

3. dont tell strangers what to do, its rather odd.. 

4. profit for you +more game time for you.

did i do this right?

oh a 5th  suggestion. Read Wernicks "Promotional culture Advertising, ideology and symbolic expression". Its profit for sure. If you are into advertising that is.

over exaggerating there OP...

 

Does your girlfriend not listen to words? how about just tell her its a "stupid MMO that is trying to draw a crowd in with sex appeal"?

 

not that hard..

 

if she cant comprehend that then, have a nice life.This site isnt going to let one person hold it for ransom.

Yeah, MMORPG.com keeps whining at me for using an adblocker and then they put up ads that would only drive more people to use an adblocker?  If you want me to look at your ads and make you a couple of pennies, don't put up obnoxious, offensive or ugly ads.

It's not that difficult.  No thanks, I refuse to whitelist you.

I found you can also block that red text saying your using addblocker.  I agree if they want me to quit using addblocker then they should live by their add policies.  Just saying they must be making a ton of cash from sb to ignore their own advertising rules.
