    Re: Advertising - Reporting bad ads

    Im having the same problem as Marakara. I use google chrome and im getting those popups that float over the page and cover up text. I cant move them and i cant see the x to close them off. Does anyone know what to do about those other than switching to firefox? I would really prefer to keep using google chrome if possible.

    I have no problem with ads, just as long as they dont make me go into an epileptic shock with the flashing and such. Remember the elementals in wotlk that when they exploded you almost had a seizure? Yeah..thank god they don't anymore.

    Hadn't viewed any of those posts and haven't changed any settings since I registered
    The icon ( ) works perfectly fine on the normal forum pages

    Re: Advertising - Reporting bad ads

    Dear Boubouille,
    recently when i have visited mmo-champ there have been weird Organ Donation adds right over the top headlines. I am in no way against organ donation and don't find the ads it offensive, but the position of the ad does block and/or obscure the latest news. I believe the ads are for a site called recycleme.org so i was wondering if you could look into it.
    Thanks,
    -Heleon

    I use Google Chrome and I have the same organ donation add covering the headline text as this poster does.

    A few minutes ago I came across an ad for Scotch Fur Fighter. It was blocking all the recent forum posts and I couldn't find any way to close the ad, so I had to reload the page.

    ok just ran across this on the main page. It takes up 90 percent of the screen and wants you to install a plugin as well.

    I can't even view the front page because of this "Octoshape" thing, at first I even thought it was a virus. Then i googled it and its a freakin video program or something. None the less its extremely annoying and I'm sure many people want you to prune the source :P

    heres the add in a screenie:

    It's not technically an ad. It's the flash player for the tournament, and MMO-C supports it fully. MLG owns MMO-C. There are already posts about this on the MMO-C Feedback/Suggestion forum.

    Thats kinda ridiculous though Phoenix, I can't even see the front page without downloading that thing and that thing has RIDICULOUS terms and agreements.

    i got rid of it by getting noscript and blocking gamerbattles.com and mlgpro.com

    Are there any reasons, why MMO Champion is not in the US/EU Blizzard Fansite Program?
    Because MMO-champ has frequently violated the fansite agreement by posting unconfirmed patchnotes / leaked information etc. The same reason Boubille didn't get an invite to the fansite invitational at Blizzcon

    Re: Advertising - Reporting bad ads

    Not sure if this really qualifies to be poster here or not but....
    On the twitter feed, There are these "sponsored tweets" that keep being posted that go to random crap. Is that intentional? It's led me to take it off my followed list.

    https://twitter.com/MMOChampionNews It's the top one on that list (currently, until another actual news post gets made I guess) if anyone's curious what I'm talking about.
