Discordia

Postby Aya Democratic Republic » Fri Apr 22, 2022 7:28 pm

I have Postmaster-General, which blocks ads along with previous tiers, but sometimes an ad for Barry’s book Discordia still shows up.

Pretty sure that's supposed to happen, like, it's coded into the website that you see the ad for his book.

I mean, it's coded into the website, it's not like one of those normal ads you see at the bottom or at the sides of the page.

It's not an ad, it's promoting the creator of the website
I am addicted to fruit. Like, it's way to good for what it is. I need serious help. I am high on vitamin C and I can't stop eating fruit. I need help. Seriously, does anyone know where I can get help. I am like 80% fruit by now. Please help me now. This is urgent. If I don't stop eating fruit I will become fruit and someone else will eat me. It has me in its grasps and I can't escape it. What do I do? I just need fruit. Help me stop. I have a family. Fruit is too tasty and I will soon be tasty fruit too. Help

It's an ad for his book, yes.

The whole purpose of the website is to promote Max's books in the first place. Why would they make it so you could hide that ad? I use ad blocker which blocks all of the ads as well, and it still shows up. It's one minor ad.

If you check the Store, for $2.99 you can block ads under Supporter and I have Postmaster-General which includes said Supporter.

Site Supporter blocks the Discordia ad on my non-mod puppet with PMG. Tried it in a browser without any adblockers just to verify.

If you still see it and you have PMG, toggling off No advertisements, saving and then re-enabling it.

The mod/retired mod badges act the same as PMG if you didn’t have it before modding.
