    No, I'm fairly sure that he's referring to the confabulation one. Which seems to be stalking me as well.

    He were not hanged. He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they'd hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm. It is the law, for he could not be con-demned a wizard without he answer the indictment, aye or nay... Great stones they lay upon his chest until he plead aye or nay. They say he give them but two words. "More weight," he says. And died.

    Yeah, I'm seeing that too. It does have a negative vibe to it.

    Get rid of this thing already

    Also, aren't the things that are advertised supposed to be, I dunno, quality tested? It doesn't appear that they have been.

    Wow, sorry about the Confabulation one, guys! We did not approve that ad. We've now changed our ad settings to require us to approve every bid, rather than auto-approve past ads, so things like this shouldn't slip by us. I've been on the road for a month so I left before I saw any posts regarding the topic, and I apologize for its display. We don't approve ads (or the sites they link to) with swear words or inappropriate content.

    The ad shows two people kissing, and I think it's more of a romantic than erotic depiction. It's a charming comic, and I didn't see anything inappropriate on the site. It's more or less centered around a fanciful romance between a knight-dude and an elf-chick. If it seems inappropriate to others I will cancel it, but I'm not sure that a kiss (even a somewhat passionate-looking one) is crossing a line.

    I don't like the ad but that's because I don't like gif ads usually
    it isn't inappropriate but I had a similar thought as SSBBrawler regardless and wouldn't mind it being gone yes

    then like Peasley said about the quality tested thing
    lots of these comics are really really stupid, originally I thought you guys checked that

    but hey source of income

    The sites who advertise on the main page are consistently good - I will certainly defend the quality of all of those ads (I can't recall any we approved that were for some crummy site, and we've turned down a lot of bids for bad sites).

    The quality of forum ads is indeed lower because the traffic and therefore advertising price is much lower on that adspace. I agree with you about these ads: I'm not happy with the quality of the ads on the forum banner, so we may end up just getting rid of it. We want the ads we run to be worth looking at, and the forum ads haven't always lived up to this standard. I'll talk to Matthew about it.

    I'll second what Kirbster said. So long as they have clothes on, I'm fine with those sorts of ads.

    Personally, I don't like the ad.
    But I can't really see any harm in it, so you can keep it if you want.

    This Confabulation is back, again
    And the Pokefarm ads too, I guess those are bad because someone else complained about them

    This is definitely not an error on the mod's side, I know that much

    Yeah, the ads are TB and 58's responsibility.

    The mods (and even Jry) have no control over the ads, since the ads are done through project wonderful, not the forum.

    Confabulation is back once again. Perhaps Matt and Chris need to cut off all Confabulation ads, even if the initial presented ad is something else.

    I had this too; it was also on the top and part of the side.
    It's disturbing to see it right next to these comics that for so long have seemed almost childish at heart, not something that would be endorsing this kind of adult ad.

    Did anyone get a screencap of this ad?

    Edit: Was it similar to this?

    I'll screencap it the next time I see it, but this laptop doesn't have that ability.
    Also, it was exactly like that, except with Texas instead of Florida, and probably different females.
    There were multiple ads advertising it, though.

    Re: Advertisement Issues Thread

    When I loaded the site minutes earlier, I heard this sound that started sounding like an advert for a film, but I could not see the advert anywhere. Then it changed to discussion about the Premier league, and again I couldn't see where it was coming from. It stopped as soon as I closed the site.

    What's with the Texas Singles ad on the bottom-right? Boobs McSkank doesn't seem relevant to BitF. :/

    If there's a button on the laptop(usually on the top right) that says something like "PRTSCRN", then YES it has that ability.

    Tap that button.
    Open an image editor program, like Paint.
    Paste(Ctrl+V). Edit from there if necessary.

    Pictures of these ads would be nice, either way, to help pinpoint their source.
