I am sorry for the horrible quality this question shows up and for all the mobile users that won't have the text fit for there screen. Sadly i can't make a long post on this site because of the annoying limitations so i had to do this trick in order to bypass the limit. In addition the site does not allow posting of high quality images as they wan't to convert and host everything themselves. So if you want the view the original high res image you can go here.
Yes, GaG has gone to far and should change there site. I plan on quitting if they don't.

No, everything is fine as it is / Yes, They have gone to far but i don't care to much.
Those of you who are a higher exper level like me and don't get the ads when you are logged in try to vote based on your experiance when you are logged out. This post is mainly to defend our lower level users.
Thank you for your feedback! We have taken care of the explicit advertisement. The first screenshot you included is not an advertisement though. It's simply a social integration test we're doing to spread the word of GAG through social media. The testing should be done soon :)
well i have an ad block on, so 90% of this isn't really an issue for me. The related articles thing has always been bad, which is why i don't click it. All in all though, what interests me are a select few of the people on gag at this point. What the site owners choose to do with ads doesn't really concern me much. They also frequently dance the line between what kind of sexually explicit material is allowed and which isn't. If it bothers you this much, i probably would leave because its definitely not changing any time soon
Yes I'm kind of pissed I was promised after I reached a certain level adds won't pop up any longer and it hasn't for the longest and yet with this update I keep seeing this stupid "Do you know anyone who would like this?"
I also see all of the other ones of course but I don't really care as much because it isn't really popping up.
I get pissed off with the ads when trying to log in. Just fuck off and let me log in for christ's sake. They make the page jump around.
However, that is what pays for the site sooo... they have always had really bad pop up adverts here, I don't think it is any worse apart from that dumb social media share thing. No, if I wanted to share it I would - stop trying to make me!
when i was still level 8, i only saw ads when i'm on a work computer. the way they were displayed was really annoying.
i understand GaG makes money off ads, but instead of having ads everywhere that just make people get adblock (thus asking us to donate), the ads should be tastefully placed. like some could be placed on the sidebar in place of the "Top Topic Xpers", etc.
i find it really annoying when a random add starts playing or you just get tonnes of adds blocking up your page, i now have adblock active when i use GAG but 5 minutes it asks me to disable adblock or donate..
I am lucky that I am above the ad threshold but I remember when I was getting ads it annoyed me a bit - I have been thinking about the ad for telling friends about GaG is a bit weird because anytime there is a question about knowing anyone on GaG in real life, a lot of people are horrified because they say personal stuff here. I think GaG made mistakes making over level 7 ad free and offering prices for Xper.
I've only been getting the first one frequently so far. its a bit annoying yeah but I don't think it will be this way forever, maybe they're just trying to boost their stats keeping these ads up for maybe... a few weeks.
