    Hmm, that is odd to begin with because you're a sub.

    During a site transition/upgrade years ago my account was randomly deleted. Coma created a new one and changed it to give me my rep points, post count, and subscription back. But something odd happened, and my subscription never turned off (it was supposed to end after a few months). I've had it for years and despite telling the staff about it, nothing was (could be?) done. Since I became a moderator the ads came back. I'm not sure if there's some weird conflict there or what.

    The ads on the forums aren't that bad IMO. Home page on the other hand, good God! Those shadow boxes that drop down take up a 1/4 of the late on my tablet. Scroll down then it comes from the bottom up. Usually at&t ad. I've looked for a button to close it but not luck.

    To be completely honest, some of the ads of this site are absolutely unbearable. There are some that would immediately expand upon mouse hover-over and the little "x" that closes the expanded ad is still over the ad itself, and so when you pull the mouse away after clicking that "x", it immediately registers it as a hover-over and re-expands the ad I JUST closed. There are a few like this that made using the site impossible. The ads are just way too intrusive sometimes.

    Top right of those ad boxes there are little black Xs, click em and they go away. Not had any problems with them.

    Look at it this way, you need to get the infected Hookers out there to turn a profit and this is the infection the forum has
    Plato and Aristotle, a detail of The School of Athens, a fresco by Raphael. Aristotle gestures to the earth, representing his belief in knowledge

    That's why you gotta use protection

    The only ad that's really pissing me off is the D3 ad - you have to wait till it's almost over to skip it and it blocks the whole screen.

    Gonna unblock PSU at home if it helps, i've got no adblock here at work anyway

    Although I do agree some of these ads are obnoxious, I do appreciate those who have decided to whitelist the site. :]

    We totally agree. We didn't realise that ad would be like that. It will be complete soon and we won't be getting something like that back any time soon. Even I wanted to install ad blocker for that. Thanks for your patience.

    Please tell me what the ads are like in the US. This is something I can't see most of the time so without your feedback I can't address it.

    Can you take a screenshot?

    I've made a huge change based on feedback on this thread.

    From immediate effect (well about 15 mins) I've taken down some of the obtrusive ads in the US and Canada from the top and the bottom of the screens that were expanding.

    Please let me know that you see that change shortly. I'd like to apologise. I've been through a portal to view these ads in the US and they are unacceptable on the homepage. I regret I didn't do this sooner.

    I'm a subscriber so, er, I'll stick to just keeping my ad-blocker on.

    Loyalty to petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul.

    I don't really mind 'normal' ads, but the ones that play unwanted sound, or cover the screen, or follow your mouse-wheel down the screen blocking the forum text, or make my browser all buggy...except for those types of things, I don't mind ads.


    Shut up and play games

    The ads are ridiculous on this site, a stupid ass Lynx ad that takes up the bottom half of the page and a popup video, both of which happen more often than not. So I'm not removing ad block.

    Please help our Final Fantasy Community get off the ground:
