    Too old for you?

    Love me a good MILF. It's the thought of her being Hugh Hefner's sloppy seconds that's the bucket of Ice water.


    Also, it's the same tabloid advertising that made me raise uBlock against Taboola. I have zero interest in Celeb culture. I needed to look Barbi Benton up first when you started it... not that I minded.
    Still, get this crap away from me. I've already got videogames to rot my mind with.

    Gonna spend some time figuring out how I can tell uBlock to allow through all of Eurogamer's advertisement, EXCEPT the taboola-esque

    "You wouldn't believe how this celeb looks now! Try not to gasp!"

    bullshit.


    If it takes me more than 15 minutes though, you're going back on the adblock list Eurogamer...



    EDIT: Seems like it's all or nothing. uBlock is back up for Eurogamer. Pity. I really liked the game-related banners. Still sponsoring digital foundry on Patreon.

    Hey Guys - quick update here, I took up the quality issues with the provider in question here and these click-bait units in the ad spaces should be removed, thanks for bringing to my attention :cool:

    @mAc6 No problem at all! I have just blocked all brands under the Aldaniti international network! this should prevent them loading through - apologies for the annoying ads.

    This is my own fault, but I'm getting adverts for a "Female Lady Portable Outdoor Travel Soft Silicone Urination Funnel Urinal Device"

    And not for the reasons you think!

    :D

    @bennyw01 I got this one twice today here in Belgium.

    It says they are looking for beta testers for the iphone 9, so they want to send me an iphone 7. Go figure.



    There's no actual button to click on, but annoying non the less.

    @Fake_Blood I mean, this totally breaks the rules I have in place to protect you guys against such ads - I will have a look for it and get it removed! didn't I block the brand behind this previously?

    Also this is a point worth noting - we had a similar issue on Nintendo Life and it turned out the user has a device based issue with an invasive install causing these requests, could you please try on another device and let me know? ideally I need to isolate the issue so I can get it resolved for you :)

    @Fake_Blood ive had a hunt to no avail and also its possible on iOS to have these issues - I recommend clearing your cache:

    https://appletoolbox.com/2017/07/get-rid-safari-pop-scams/

    (Sorry I know its not the best page)

    If it comes again after following this let me know and I will remove.

    Out of interest is it only on our site that you see this issue?

    @bennyw01 cache is cleared, weíll see how it goes. I suppose I just lost all my stored passwords right?

    And yes this was the only site where I was getting this.

    Being served ads for PUBG Hacks. Not ideal I'd suggest. That might be something you want to blacklist.

    I don't even own PUBG let alone cheat before you all start...

    @bennyw01

    How will the Eurogamer take-over affect the add policy?

    @Skirlasvoud Sorry about the late response mate! I believe it will remain mostly unchanged if not better, we still strive to have a level of ads that don't offend and meet the Better Ads Standard, I can imagine everything is business as usual.
