Ok gamefaqs, stop automatically sending me to your ads'

#1wdfosterPosted 10/25/2013 8:25:33 AM
Off topic, i know but, its getting ****ing annoying. As a user of your website since 1999 (this is my second account) i find this crap intolerable.

What happens is when i visit your site when using my iphone (iphone user herp derp), your ads will automatically send me to some garbage game on the app store against my will.

Please fix.

Too late. The Illuminati have your information and you will forever get ads.

It's the absolute worst. The mobile interface is either so bad that you inevitably click the ad or you automatically get redirected to the AppStore for some ridiculous game. And yet they wonder why no one'll add gamefaqs to their Adblock exceptions list .

You can get adblock on mobile browsers?

Anyways, there's an option to pre reserve ad space somewhere in account options. Really helps out on mobile.

yeah but not from the store. you have to visit their website and download the apk manually. the google play store removed it

but you are using iOS so I have no idea how that works.

I have adblock installed on Firefox on my phone, and GFAQs still occasionally manages to sneak a nearly-full-screen video ad in. I almost never use GFAQs mobile any more because of that. GFAQs is one of the absolute worst offenders of terrible ads I've ever seen. During times I have not had ads blocked for whatever reason, I've seen (just on GFAQs):

Ads that open in a new browser window
Ads that pop up in a floating overlay that stays in the middle of your screen when you scroll
Autoplay video ads
Noisy Flash ads
Porn ads
Banner ads that expand to a full-screen rollout if you touch so much as a single pixel of the banner with your cursor

GFAQs posted a while back asking people to be nice and not block ads here. F*** that, and f*** them for asking. If there is ANY site I can absolutely NOT trust to handle ads properly, it's GFAQs.
