In what situation would you be okay with ads on GameFAQs?

The I'm OK with ads as long as they are unobtrusive and I whitelist the sites I frequent

Oh god there's not enough liquor and therapy in the world to undo that.

> I'll blacklist ads on every site, it's nothing personal GameFAQs.

Unless you straight out use images without any kind of Javascript to advertize. I have no issue with that.

I just use adblock and I'm not going out of my way just to allow one site to advertise

No ads please. With a company like CBS backing the site, they're unnecessary.

I don't understand why CBS would fund a website (servers and salary) when the site wouldn't make any money back

I realize that, but there are obviously people who think otherwise. it's the third most popular option.

Polls are all about getting a choice for everybody, which I think I did here

I started blocking ads on gamefaqs when they started using sound.

Simple banner, no flash, no video, no noise, party like it's 1999. Not a half million of them either, we/re talking one in the header and maybe a footer or side bar max.


Primarily that.

Unskippable ads that come in your face, with blaring noises like they're the most important thing in the world, that obstructs your view of whatever you want to view and forces you to view it despite the fact that said ad is stupid in the first place(looking at you, YouTube) are the most annoying ones

only reason cbs owns this site is becuase they bought gamespot and this site is fairly cheap to run and it brings traffic to gamespot its self by article links

But heck even cbs dosent even bother to link its other sites here anymore cause i remeber when youd see tons of money watch and tech site (i forgot the name of the business tech site they used to link to but ti would have funny article board articles on the weekends ie "10 reasons why a real life battlemech would be inefficent )

At least they didnt pull what ign did to game sages (90 percent of igns pre ps2 codes were originally game sages and user send ins to sages ) and take all the faqs and merge them with their site as their own ......

oh and id pay 9.95 a year if they let me keep throwback mode the new look sucks.......
