Thank you TrunksWD. I wasn’t aware of those things and bronze tier is within my budget when I choose to claim it.

I'm happy to help. I know not everyone knows about the Supporter program or at least knows all three Tiers removes ads.

I'm a paid supporter for two reasons:

1) This site is close to unusable because of ads, so I needed a way around that.

2) The supporter money goes directly to the people that make the site work. So, rather than propping up the bad business practices (among the worst add placement regimes on the internet) of the owner, I'm paying the people that make this place run in spite of the owner.

I'm a business owner myself, and I make a practice of not screwing businesses out of revenue. But, in the case of this site, ownership seems to be trying to make the site as unusable as possible. So, fuck 'em.

Anyway, get yourself bronze supporter status. It's cheap, the site becomes infinitely more usable, and you're helping support the people that support the site.

Thank you for being a Supporter. You are absolutely correct the money goes to the writing team and the admins who help keep the site running. The Supporters make a big difference.

We sadly aren't allowed to mess with the ads. I understand not everyone has the extra income to buy Supporter and how annoying the ads are, which is why people use Adblock. 

if anyone is curious here is the link to the Support page. If you just want to remove the ads and still support the site you only need the Bronze Tier, which is $2.50 for 1 month, $5 for 3 months, and $18 for 12 months.

I remember iirc it was a big issue around the time of the websites latest update with the unmoveable adds blocking the buttons, but it became better when Raven and the staff were finally given  permission to contact the ad supplier to work out any problems and since then i haven't had any problems besides the occasional  sponsored wallpaper ads but I should add I use a laptop for VGChartz.

Well lately on mobile view at least there’s this ad (type) that pops up and literally takes up three quarters of the screen which pretty much keeps you from doing anything, even reading, and is obviously quite ridiculous, but there’s a much bigger window than 0.4 seconds between those. I’ve been meaning to take a screenshot. I can still get to the Post button though, I’m quick-replying this in mobile mode right now.

I took a screenshot, here: https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=9322847

It was posted on the website development thread for suggestions and feedback September 25th and has been completed ignored up until now, tho.

Lol. Yes, exactly. Missed that post. Though mine is about car tires mostly. I don't even need tires.

I have reported lineager’s comment with above link. Brand new account and first comment. Generally people here seem to do a good job of keeping them out so hopefully we get lucky and don’t see too many more of these.
