Cog's already handle the official bit of business, but it's also worth noting that it doesn't matter that there is stuff that is worse on the internet. [violet] (that is, the site administrator and second only to Max Barry himself about site policy, in case you weren't aware) has made it quite clear that these ads are unwelcome, and she has requested people report it here. So basically, attacking people who are doing what the admin told them to do? Kinda sorta not a good idea.

Now they have changed it to Click here for a roman empire. Better than before, but the scantly clad woman suggests something other than empire.

May I please ask a question?

I get a lot of advertisements popping up for all sorts of dating sites on here, such as the Cougar one and UniformDating, to name 2 of about 6. Would these be classed as inappropriate as well?

True indeed.

On another note, I have gotten an entirely unique new advertisement on my computer whilst browsing this page a few moments ago.

Every advertisement does this on my computer since my browser displays things differently as I played with the zoom settings, hence the overlapping. However I said "moments", not "minutes." Moments could have been seconds too.

We've got an advert to join the slave register (anyone who knows what that is will know that it is very much inapropriate for this game) on the old (denecaep's) waso thread. I can't see the graphics, but I doubt they are happy and smiley.

No, we don't mind helping people to find love, so long as it's done non-obnoxiously.

I don't get it... what's the problem? Does the text say something I can't read?

That's not coming up as one of our ads, at least based on a text search. I also don't quite understand how you knew it was there if you couldn't see it.

Well you don't understand see, Max Barry the one who owns the site wants this to be a PG-13 site and this ad breaks the rules, and so it must be removed.

But the admins don't want it here, so if you want to complain then complain to them (if you dare). I assume you haven't seen the wrath of admin or have experienced it, haven't you?

Yes, I'm afraid they were necisary. They were pointing out their opinions, exactly as I am doing now. If violet is not max, which she strongly denies, then I'd like to here max's opinion on what is pg-13. It's all well and good saying that everything must be pg-13, but what exactly is pg-13? You can't give a film-style rating, because this isn't a film. You can't give a rating that would be applied to a normal game, because this isn't a game with graphics and realistic blood being shown, unless players have actually posted it, which should be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
So, what is pg-13? We need a well-set out list of things that are inappropriate, and things that are appropriate, otherwise some people will not be satisfied.

No they weren't. It's already been established that a game admin is not happy with the adverts - that's enough.

It's impossible to write an exhaustive list. This is also not the correct thread for this. Have a look in the Moderation forum, where you'll find that this question has been addressed beforehand.

I didn't know that. I assume that this site is for those 13 and older therefore I would assume it isn't inappropriate. And if you want me to know why not put it in your banner in red letters next time. Thanks.
