    Advertisement Issues Thread

    I know that there's nothing up there just yet, but might as well get to this thread before it's an issue.

    Basically if you have issues with a displayed advertisement, post it here. We'll do our best to try and keep them clean, but the inevitable one or two will sneak by every once in a while. So if one does, either alert one of the staff via private message or post here on what the issue is.

    We've tried making them about as non-invasive as possible, so bear with us as things get moved around a bit here and there.

    SNF EDIT: Please post the URL any bad advertisements link to. It makes it easier to find the bad sites.

    Will this thread have as much whining about ads people just don't like, or will you be cutting down on this?

    I suppose this is where we moan about advertisements?

    Maybe the cancer joke in this add is not that suitable, but I'd say judge for yourself.

    Holy ****.

    I've contacted TB and 58 about that ad, they'll fix it later.

    Unfortunately the forum staff doesn't have any power over the main site, so it's up to TB and 58.

    I'm not daring to click on that link above, but if it's any different, there are pornographic ads on the site currently. Please fix that.

    The issue's been fixed - fortunately, it wasn't up for too long. Obviously, we did not approve that ad - one of our approved advertisers switched their approved ad to that thing. They're now banned from our adspace. I'll make a blog post about it tonight.

    How wretched, there's an ad of women with odd hair stripping. Can the webmasters be notified?

    The weird thing is that the site it's an ad for doesn't look that bad at all.

    A bit of profanity but that's all I noticed with a quick look at it.

    This ad was for a cute comic, actually. The ad's been cancelled, because it was a bit inappropriate - we had approved a tamer ad from the same advertiser in the past. Hopefully they can resubmit a more appropriate ad for the comic.

    There's an ad of two Street fighter girls and it is kinda nsfw ( mouse over caption is sexy so it's most likely nsfw ).
    I don't have a pic but does anyone else get this?

    Yeah, that sounds like the ad we cancelled. It wasn't nsfw at all - it was for a comic site. I dunno why he decided to change his ad to that suggestive pose of the two girls, though.

    This is a young human forum, right?

    It would help to point out which ad needs the boot.

    Screenshots or links would help.

    Are you referring to that Nicky510 one? I'm not sure how to deal with it either.
