I'll disable my ad-block on this site the moment your ads become less aggressive and stop setting my anti-virus software off. There is no reason video ads should auto start or take up my entire screen, I should not get a "you will be redirected to Gaia in [insert] seconds" after being directed away from the site, and I should not have to worry about my laptop getting infected. Fix the issues, then we'll talk about my support.
I will disable my ad blocker for gaia when you make the ads less intrusive and annoying. I can't change my shirt without hitting a loud ad.

Either give us an option to monthly disable them via some pay service like buying an MC used to do or maybe purchase 999 GC/mo or deal with the fact that I will not be viewing ads on your site.

I'm not whitelisting anything from Gaia, and if I could block announcements I would, too.

This thread has the best replies. rofl

I white-list Gaia for like ten mins for the free Gaia cash and then c**k block their ads again with adblock~

I don't think you understand how ANNOYING the roll over ads are.
Or the ones that just randomly talk/make sounds.

nope!

Are y'all serious? Why on Gallifrey would I whitelist ads for a site that's done nothing but go down the tubes in terms of quality, as well as wanting a whole lot of something for a whole bunch of nothing?

I realize running a site/company isn't cheap, but there are better ways to go about it.

And for the love of everything unholy, stop spamming us with Announcements.

Gold generators need to find a fire to jump into as well.
I'll whitelist the day the adds aren't obnoxious and the day that this doesn't mean I also have to allow 20 different scripts to run in the background and thus slow down my page loading time never mind what sort of sneaky malware any of those twenty scripts may have. Because whitelisting doesn't just allow ads, you also have loads of trackers.

Also, it would be really nice if blocking scripts didn't also make the site glitch out and constantly double-reload for me. The site's running shouldn't be dependent on you guys selling space to pixel trackers :c.

I can say that even as I type this response adblock has three things blocked and ghostery is blocking two ads, two analytics, and the facebook widget (which also tracks your internet activity and reports it to FB so they can show you curated ads).

I have some places whitelisted even if that does open things up to trackers, because I want to support the creators. The fact that when I tried unblocking ads here suddenly we were in the double digits of various scripts/trackers/beacons/pixels/video ads all running... Not cool.
