This mobile ad is the last straw. I literally cannot use this site on mobile anymore

Funny thing were people warning about mods banning people because of mentions of ad blocker and then we have not only moderators but even site admins admitting the usage of it.

And funny that even with ioi away we get new ad formats showing in the site.

Get Opera mini, which has a built in adblocker, or get Dolphin and DL the adblock extension. The other alternative is to pay to get rid of ads, but tbh i wouldn't support a site like vgchartz in your position.

I am conflicted. Is this a good or a bad thing?

Its probably good. It drives users away from this site, and thus ever meeting you. ;)



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Tried Opera mini and it didn't work. Using Seven AdClear which works perfectly and keeps track of how many ads it has blocked. 

 

The adverts before I was able to close or hide, but the new ones can't be closed or hidden.

Life is more like a game of bumper cars. At every turn there is a possibility you will get screwed.

After seeing VGC with ads for the first time on mobile, I have not used this site other than on a PC with ABP :p

Did you enable adblock on Opera mini? Because I think that default is off.

If you mean the pop up option, yes it's active. The problem is the ad isn't a pop up which is why chrome can't stop it either.

I downloaded the adblock browser because of the annoyance of this website and its ads. I really wish they would create a mobile version of it. Then the ads would be better controlled and wouldn't have to bitch about it.

Were the ads as bad back in the day as they are now?

Can't tell, I remember ads making sounds even when my vgchartz tab was not open but the amount of virus attacks were crazy.

So, it seems like Chartz has always had some issues with ads. Damn it, ioi!

The horrible ads is one of the reason i dont look at this site very often.
