Hello all admins,
This is really becoming a problem, and it's irritating the hell out of me. I really should use an ad blocker, I know, but I don't. Anyway, why the hell does the site have ads that absolutely no one is going to click on? For instance:
<frame><frame><frame>aclk sa=L&ai=Cja0kTzUoWeODNdac…</frame></frame></frame>
I put those HTML tags in there just to show you that there were three frames inside one another. Here's what I'm wondering though -- why are there frames anyway? Ads? This site is supposed to promote games and accessibility, yet we put ads on here that constantly update and make navigation sometimes impossible because it's moving your cursor all over the place. If this site is truly dedicated to accessibility then these ads really, really need to go and never come back.

I don't disagree that ads are annoying. Yes, get and use an ad blocker. It's what I do and it works well.

In the meantime, while people are viewing the ads and not everyone has an ad blocker installed, ads are how this site, which you enjoy for free, is sponsored. How else do you imagine this should be done without ads?

Just myself, as usual.

Or, disable javascript; that's what I do.  If you're using IE, seriously consider using something else.

Oh, I'm using Seamonkey.

Personally I don't find the adds as much of an issue since I can just wiz past them by using heading navigation, though this is one area  Supernova is superior to Nvda, since Nvda has a habbit of getting stuck on add panels where as supernova didn't.

If anyone can suggest a decent add blocker that works with Ie I'd be glad to try one.

I use Adblock Plus. It's pretty decent. It can be found at adblockplus.org.

Thanks for that one Draq, Addblockplus seems to be doing the job rather nicely.

When you get in to a frame with ads, press comma if you use NVDA to get past it. This is a command to get past any container, list, table, frame or whatever else.

If you are going to use addblock plus, please read about the companies business practices before you do: in short, they are blocking all adds except when publishers / advertisers pay them, as the article puts it: they are the gatekeaper of there own gate.

If you want nearly all adds to be blocked, you might want to take a look at ublock origin instead.

Sebi, one way could be to take a page out of Youtube's book, and offer a premium service for  $5 a month that gets rid of ads and so forth, it'd obviously go tward costs and such, I've been on sites with such a program and I personally wouldn't mind paying a few bucks a month ot support the site.

That being said, I personally don't like the ads that are intrusive as hell really, and given again Youtube's own issues with ads...yeah, I'd happily pay for the site to remove ads, This site, not YT, though I'd happily pay for that too really...
