    There is an ad about selling accounts that shows frequently. Is this supposed to be here? It's account warehouse something.

    Nope, please report it with details requested in the OP.

    Not a Bad Ad issue per se, but I'm noticing this issue on the front page of Mmo-Champion that the links to new threads become misaligned on mobile if I zoom in the web page with Ads loaded. Happens on Google Chrome in mobile mode but not in desktop mode. Doesn't happen in Firefox Focus when scripts are blocked, but happens when they are allowed.

    You've started adding auto play video adds.
    I sure hope that this does not auto play when I'm on mobile connection, because using up my mobile GBs for adds like this will surely make me stop frequenting.

    You call them cinematics.

    I was browsing mmo-champion on my smart phone when an "ad" from backupvpn hijacked the browser window. It tried saying my phone was compromised and forced a redirect to their shady as fuck website.

    Same ad tried hijacking my phone again. Can something be done before I classify this site as unsafe to view on mobile?

    Suggestion..... fix your damn ad policy for mobile. Your website has more mobile screen hijacking adds than I've ever seen on any other site. I'd love to be able to check the forums occasionally from more than just my pc/laptop, but it's seriously like a 80%+ chance to get screen jacked into some bullshit popup add that only closes via closing the browser tab or exiting the browser entirely, and your website is the only one pulling that bullshit outside of clickbait trash sites.

    I don't think there's a checkbox labeled "I'm ok with serving my users malware and redirect ads".
    It's lack of moderation on the ad network's side, and sadly none of the larger ones (as in, large enough to offer appropriate revenue for the traffic popular sites like MMOC or Wowhead generate) care enough about this.
    Wowhead has similar issues because malicious ads are aimed at such high-traffic venues. At least for Wowhead I know that they went through several ad networks to at least reduce the number of bad ads.

    It's their website and they are responsible for the content that goes on it... They don't get to just pass the buck onto the ad network when they are specifically making a choice to use that ad network, and profiting from it at the expense of their own users getting subjected to screen hijacking ads constantly when browsing on mobile devices.

    It's a problem, and it's on their website specifically. From there, they can either work to address the issue and stop pissing people off who use mobile devices to browse their site, or start risking decreased traffic from the largest segment of the people browsing the internet.

    Are Gambling Ads (online casinos) considered bad ads? I've seen a few of them on the site and should I report them whenever possible?

    MMO-C isn't strictly a Mature site so should those ads be not allowed?

    If only Google would show me/others 100% relevant ads like for games or movies instead of this **** but no, non-relevant ads appear every where even after I've set my google ad-settings properly.

    I'm getting this one constantly. It says my phone has been infected by xx (number between 7 and 35) viruses. Only happens on my phone. Here's screenshots from today:

    Every time I load a page, if I attempt to click on a a forum topic on my phone, there's about a 75% chance I'll get an overlay ad that redirects me or it will do it automatically if I don't force the page to stop loading before it pops up. Seriously though, fix this invasive ad garbage.

    Congrats to the 11 fools who made the ignore list, your ignorance knows no bounds, bravo!

    Still not fixed. Have to reload the page multiple times and be super fast until i can use it on the phone.

    They are, but if they don't know the URL of the ad, they can't remove it, since it's a manual blacklist

  17. #1017
    Yup, classic gold selling right smack on the frontpage. I have this one

    Im not sure this website should promote gold selling
    Your problem is that you’re more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.

    Just saw this. Was on desktop (MacOS X, 10.13.6, Safari 13) and got one of those fake Flash upgrade ads.

    Now that I've seen the top post, I'll see about finding the URL and reporting it. Never seen it happen on the desktop. That's new by me. Mobile? yeah.
