Scarlet Blade adds

Greymantle4Greymantle4 Posts: 802Member Uncommon

Is anyone here offended by these adds? IMHO they don't belong on this site. When my wife first saw the adds with the four magazine covers as she was walking by she thought I was looking at anima porn.

Maybe I'm just getting old and need to look the other way and or find a new site. Can anyone suggest a good MMO site?

    It's kinda upto the website hosts (Not MMORPG) to put up ads. MMORPG has no control over what ads appear.

    Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

    Why not gently explain to your wife that a company making a game you have no interest in are conducting an ad campaign on a forum about MMOs you frequent and that you have no control over which adverts are shown.

    simple, mature, honest.

    Think my wife has less problems with me watching porn as a healthy man then watching (and playing) games hahahahaha.

    I have no issue with the ads. If someone walks in and thinks that is what you are doing and doesn't allow you to explain that it is just an advertisement on a forum that you visit, then obviously they don't listen to you to begin with.

    My wife is a gamer like me met her in EQ. She for the most part has no problem with the adds other then like me she feels they don't belong here. That is the problem not the adds.

    Though she does not like the use of woman in a sexual way to sell a video game but that has nothing to do with my original post. 

  • MukeMuke BredaPosts: 2,172Member Uncommon

    This is porn?

    Tell me why please?

    I don't see intercourse/sexual acts  or other indecent nudity shown?

     

    Or the OP must live in a country where the government sees showing off anything more then a few women eyes or bare ankles as porn or live sin a country where they are complete hypocrits.

    It is an advert for a game, the game has scantily clad characters and the ad reflects that, this is an MMO website, the advert belongs here, you not liking them is a different matter.

    It seems for the most part no body cares. To the question not answered yet anyone know of a MMO site that would have a higher standard then here (my opinion) and have a lot of the features that MMORPG has?

    There have been umpteen threads about this already with hundreds of posts for and against. I presume other game sites also work on a commercial basis so unless you can find one like ChristianMMO.com I imagine you will find you have the same issue.

    Im nto so much offended but my family thinks I am looking at kiddie porn when I visit this site.....They really should have some standards as to what is acceptable.
  • mikunimanmikuniman Keene, NYPosts: 312Member

    You're adults and you find this offensive? I'd say you two are way to thin skinned and would have to find an site without adds. That would be the only way to lessen the chance you could find anything that would offend you guys. You folks get out much?

    Massively doesn't have full page ads, but it also doesn't have a forum. I haven't seen a single Scarlet Blade ad there. You can comment on the articles, but they don't have the forums that this site does, which is really the only reason to come here.

    I believe this is what is called "The Spotlight Effect".

    Remember back in school when something awkward happened and you couldn't stop thinking about it all class? That everyone will laugh at you forever because of it? That's what this is. These men are ashamed because their wives might have misunderstood the context. When their wives walked away and forgot about it, these men couldn't stop thinking about it.

    Best way to solve this? Like you said explain it and be done with it.

    A voice of reason :) I feel were a dying bread these days but its nice to know others do feel the same way. To the post above it would be nice to know I can come to my gaming news site and not have to worry about kids walking by and being exposed to the adds.

    Maybe you should move to amish country? Your bread is baked, mate. There is full frontal nudity on the telly during lunch hours and partial nudity in just about every film and add there is. Probably more indecent ads on the billboards in your capital city than on this site.

    Are you serious again? Do you walk fucking blindfolded when you walk on the beach ... for real now? Or yuo never get out of your mother's basement and you've never seen a naked woman (although these are NOT naked, they have bikini, believe it or not)

    It's a PR trick of course. You don't seriously believe that the iPhone is the only smartphone there is right?

    Scarlet Blade is a boss! Got some epic adds you cant handle. Throw all the DOTs you want, you will still get -50 DKP when this b*tch lands.

    Oh for the love of... As I've stated in 5 of these threads before, you don't like the ads? Get Adblock Plus and block them permenently. I did it in 30sec, no more SB ads, problem solved, no need for a 6th thread on this.

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

  • IkedaIkeda Largo, FLPosts: 2,204Member Uncommon
    As I stated in the previous forum, just adblock it.  Right click the image scroll down and block them by date.  That way if there becomes a more acceptable group of ads, you'll still see them in the future.  ooooooorrrrrrrrrr if the ads are still offensive you can take the 5-10 seconds to block it.  I highly recommend it and my daughter can now look over my should while I peruse the site.  (she can't read yet or I'd have to explain to her why half of ya'll are trolling this poor guy who has a valid right to his opinion)
