    Anyway, I wasn't going to complain, but this is freakin' ridiculous. I can't even use Bulbapedia anymore!



    It... took up... the entire screen ._. And interestingly, it originally had an 'x' button, but it just kept on getting bigger, until finally the 'x' button disappeared. The ad also make my browser lag, but I guess ads do that.
    I saw that one too just 5 minutes ago and had to zoom out to get rid of it

    That doesn't excuse the ad, though =_=

    No. It's never passable, no matter how many people are having problems.

    Having said that, adding "me too" really doesn't help us much. Extra info, like exactly what the link is when you mouseover it or right click and select "Copy Link Location" (or whatever it is in your browser) is a BIG help, since there's no way for us to search for these ads by image alone. That just lets us confirm we've got the right one.

    Right, I apologize.

    With these ads, there's no mouseover. I can only get a link by clicking on them. This is the link for the ad I just complained about.

    Looks like the Disney ads are gone. Thanks Archaic!

    However...I just got on, and ads for Metal Gear Solid and an anime popped up. I wouldn't know for the anime one, the only anime-related things I watch are Pokemon and clips of Axis Powers Hetalia. But given that kids visit the site, the MGS one shouldn't pop up.

    I'm not seeing any problems with the MGS one personally. It's a mature rated game, but there's nothing about the ad itself that's a problem.

    The ad itself isn't bad, but I'm saying some kids (like my little brother) might be tempted to play it.

    The ad itself isn't a problem because it doesn't display anything restricted - just the box cover. If they are tempted to play the game, then they'll still need to buy it from a store, which is where the rating comes in. The ad itself isn't exposing any children to mature content.

    Indeed. It's not like a kid can play it without their parents buying it for them, and we can't make parenting decisions for parents.

    I got this while browsing the wiki. I was signed in and was looking at my edit history when it came up (you can even see the url I was at). Is this considered a bad ad?

    If you were signed in, you shouldn't be getting any ads at all from Bulbapedia. I don't suppose you clicked the "Why did I recieve this survey" link at the bottom of it? My guess would be that it's resulting from a toolbar/add-on you have installed, rather than from Bulbapedia.

    If it is coming from our servers though, then yes. They shouldn't be in the middle of the page like that.

    Assuming you were signed in, then it's impossible for the ad to have been served by our site. Nevertheless, I'll keep an eye on this just in case. We don't have pop-up's or intersitals, so ads shouldn't appear like that even if it was a legitimate ad (say, if you'd been signed out accidentally without you realizing). If anyone else sees it, let me know.
