I'm fine with ads but this has gone to far.
When I got on this-morning a huge ad for a mature RPG popped up.
Now, I remember reading that this is designed so anybody of any age can view it, this was mature, adult content I believe.
This only popped up as I clicked my messages, essentially blocking them. I'm fine with these ads but when they block a part of the website it's NOT on.
Also, as I said earlier they only pop up for me when clicking a link, coming up JUST before I follow the link, making me go to some random website I haven't seen the ad for.
I'm only raging as this doesn't really come up as I load the page for me, if it was up all the time for me I'd be fine. Nah, just kidding.
I'm only posting this as a little kid, say a six year old, could go on here and check their messages but then an ad for, say, a mature thing comes up JUST as they click and they go to something they shouldn't see.

If it's just me getting this then ignore it ._.

Those ads popped up on ROBLOX one time. They've been taken down since but geez, ROBLOX is designed for kids!!! (P.S. Yes, I play ROBLOX, deal with it.)

Ad's are only representative of what is searched on your PC. You search mature things, you get mature ads. Also I am told that the half-ad issue is now fixed.

Okay, thank you. I'm fine with ads for random things as long as it doesn't block the website :P

So basically do the same as google chrome's ad blocker but really slow? :P

No, actually, it does better and just as fast. I have both. I prefer firefox for browsing and chrome for screwing around with HTML. Script blocker also blocks malicious scripts or anything that could be dangerous (most ads, some java script, other things...).m You can allow any portion of any site.

Personally, I don't even bother looking at the ads. I do have this issue, where the ad will occasionally block half of the website. This is extremely annoying, and the only way to get rid of it, is to refresh the page. I can't stand the ads that literally block me from viewing the site itself. Otherwise, I could care less about the ads (though I could see why people might not like the more mature-themed content showing up).

Yeah, I did look up adblock though as I actually previously thought it's a program. It seems to be a google-supported google chrome add-on so I put it on. :D

I've used adblock in the past. It's pretty nice. I would install it again, but eh, like I said, I'm not all that worried about the ads until they prevent me from being able to see a webpage in its entirety.

Wow. Such mixed opinions xD
Anyway as I said before I don't really want to waste my computer's data download space stuff on some ad-block. And it came up with Moshi Monsters. I never play in that rubbish - how'd THAT come about? ._.

Well, the ads are based on data search engines collect from your searches, so the ads are tailored to individual people. If that shows up, then we have a problem O.o. lol. Yeah just get an adblock I never have to see an add on this site.

I'm pretty sure PMC doesn't allow popup ads, you might have something on your computer doing it. If it's not your computer, than it might be based on your browsing history, or it's an ad that shouldn't be on here but got around the protections.

Actually, about 15 minutes ago I went to pull up the homepage, only to have half of my browser blocked by an ad the was in a glitched position. Just letting you know.

I previously thought it was my computer as well, however seeing the reactions of others posting here I believe it is an actual problem. I'll test a bit.

Waste of time? It takes less then 5 mins to download chrome and adblock.
You go to the settings section and you make it so it blocks ads on every site you visit.

I know, but I'm not going to waste valuable space on my laptop just to block a few ads.
Anyway, you're missing the point in this whole blog, it's not "Oh I'm getting ads :(" it's more a "a six year old could stumble across something meant for 18 year olds" message.

No, I play RPGs but I have no interest in these stupid 18+ rip offs and Moshi Monsters. How'd that come about xD

Also I'm glad to hear it's not just me being stupid (Imagining the ads I mean, not us being stupid people) :3

Does it say 18+? It might just be trying to hook you in with the pictures. But I don't pay attention to ads, but I hate when it says something, but it is something else.

"Mature RPG" Now, mature usually means around a mature age (Nowardays I doubt there is a mature age...) which I would probably put around 16-18... But I believe it's fixed now. Topic closed! :D
