Advertisement block now looks borked

Postby Tinhampton » Tue Jun 30, 2020 6:03 pm

About ten minutes ago, advertisements started to appear to load but not display (intentionally on my end - ABP enabled on Firefox). There are two clear signs of this - the forumside privacy notice in the first spoiler, and the big gameside gap between "ADVERTISEMENT" and "Remove ads" in the second spoiler.

Why is this happening and is there any way for this to be unborked (beyond becoming a Site Supporter)?

Not sure what the problem is here...

The game has ads, which pay to keep the servers running. Site supporter removes those, but you do not have that.
So, expect ads. You then set in your browser to have the ads not displayed, and so they don't display.

With some ad blockers you can right click those elements saying "advertisement" and block them too. That's what I've been doing on my end for years, so it's at the point where there is absolutely no indication there are ads at all, and there is no longer any indication they are missing either.

Like so:

The borking was with ABP itself, not with NationStates - thanks

One question about "We Value your Privacy", haven't you Visited a Sketchy Site? It is Possbile that you Visited a Sketchy or Malicious Site. If you think it's not, Maybe your Ad Blocker.

Most of my web browsing is now limited to NS/Discord (and related websites), the BBC, and a handful of other semi-respectable news websites. This notice started appearing to non-adblocking/supporter forum users at the start of this year - so yes, probably the adblocker. Enough about adblockers.

I don't see anything like that using Adblock Pro. Are you sure it's not just a problem with the program you're using?

Edit: Ah, nevermind. Scrolled up, lol.
