2009-01-25 [Artsieladie]: Ok... I did... both with "Identify as Firefox" and "Mask as Firefox" and I got the exact same thing, both ways:
Internet Explorer 5.0 or Greater Required.
To view this site and enjoy all the great games from RealArcade, please make sure you are using Internet Explorer 5.0 or later. Get Internet Explorer 6 Now!
2009-01-25 [Hedda]: It works for me. Have you really tried to reload?
2009-01-25 [Artsieladie]: Reload the page (link)? If so, then yes, I just went and tried it again, both options, and hit 'reload' on the link with each option.
2009-01-25 [Artsieladie]: Ah, I see this little advice you placed with that Arcade Game Ad:
Try it out! You need a creditcard, and remember to sign off after 30 days unless you want to pay (Tip: Write a reminder with the form at the bottom of your house!). /[Hedda]
2009-01-25 [Dr. Androgynous]: As for visual appeal, the adds are pretty horrible placed as well.
2009-01-25 [allenp]: Where would be the best place?
2009-02-08 [loveguts.]: i think the ads are well placed, they're not in the way and probably couldn't be clicked on accident like most websites have them. they are a bit of an eyesore, but it's not so bad that i'll stop using elftown. though i think some of the ads may be a bit inappropriate for some of our younger members, like i just saw an ad with a link to "kinkytoystogo
2009-02-08 [Hedda]: I checked that site and I doubt you can find one single kid who can become hurt of it. Maybe some parent might get an awkward question, but that's their own fault for not using a condom...
2009-02-08 [loveguts.]: oh good. plus it is the parents fault for giving their child the power of internet.. much worse things out there. no complaints tho. ;D haha.
2009-02-09 [Hedda]: For a kid, Internet is thousands of times safer than the kitchen. It's a great place to learn. I don't think clicking on my ads is the best way, but it's the way I like the most...
2009-02-09 [Artsieladie]: I agree it's a great place to learn WITH COMPETENT ADULT SUPERVISION. It is certainly no place for a child without it. Even if the ads themselves are harmless, it's where a child can get to from these 'ad sites' that can be quite inappropriate and harmful. But.... the true knowledge 'about' being a parent, can only come from 'actually being' a parent.
Maybe some parent might get an awkward question, but that's their own fault for not using a condom...
So it's the parent's fault as well, for wanting a child? It's pretty difficult to have children using condoms, don't you think? So, what, every child is a mistake? There shouldn't be any children born at all? You were once a child yourself or did you simply materialise? I doubt your mum would agree that you just materialised one day.
2009-02-09 [Hedda]: "it's where a child can get to from these 'ad sites' that can be quite inappropriate and harmful. "
Explain exactly how that is "harmful"! Do kids' heads explode if they see a couple fucking? Or do they have nightmares? And would the supposed problems be worse because they encounter this the first time on the Internet? And, seriously, what kind of sick people are believing that the parents should supervise kids' first encounters with "dirty" things? Should the parents be there for the first masturbation or sex too?!? People need privacy, kids too.
"Maybe some parent might get an awkward question, but that's their own fault for not using a condom..."
So it's the parent's fault as well, for wanting a child?
If you become a parent and expect to get no awkward questions, then you need a slap in the face. When the parents do get the awkward questions they mustn't blame the kid, the Internet, the world or anything else, but just accept it.
2009-02-09 [Artsieladie]: Well, [Hedda], if you have to ask these questions... -sigh- It's clear that you don't have a clue about the true meaning of being a parent, but I'm not faulting you for it, because you've never been a parent. Hell, [Hedda], we parents should just be willing to expose our kids to EVERYTHING, whether they be 2 or 10 and most definitely a parent should never interfere in this 'total exposure', because it's so much better for the kids to be left with unanswered questions and then seek those answers from people that can't be trusted. Good thinking, [Hedda]!
I think most parents expect some awkward questions asked from their children. I think parents should be honest when they do answer, however, and not sugar coat that which is not so sweet.
2009-02-19 [Hedda]: Note: The new ads in your messages are showing a lot of herpes ads at the moment, but it will go away after a while. I hope... Unless Elftowners starts clicking on them like mad, but then I guess it's good ads for you, you lucky bastards!
2009-04-25 Shaun Davis: Hey just a heads up, I wanted to let everyone know that Xio Dibin speaks English. I hope I posted in the right location?
2009-04-26 [Hedda]: No, you didn't...
2009-04-27 [Chicken Littlefinger]: Strange...
2009-05-08 Satan229: I only have one main issue with the ads that are popping up when you log out. The blasted thing posp up in the middle of the screen blocking part of the page from view and you can't move it. Fix that problem and they are fine. It doesn't matter which Browser I use same problem and reloading the page doesn't work either.
2011-01-12 [Akayume]: I like how they're supposed to be based off of what's in your house, and all my ads are for sex sites and to rate your sex life. X3 (I am quite the scandal apparently.)
2011-01-12 [Chimes]: Same here. :P
