    Recently there has been reports about inappropriate ads on the forums. It is important to understand that these ads are not controlled by any of the administrators of the Naruto Forums (including myself), none of the ads are approved by us, nor are we given the opportunity to accept or deny them. However, with that said, the ad agency in charge of supplying the ads has been given strict ground rules of what is, and what is not allowed.

    Occasionally, and unfortunately, for whatever reason, certain things slip by them. It is important to us that we preserve an all age friendly, clean, forum. Ads for anything inappropriate can not, and will not be tolerated, at all, and we encourage our members to report them immediately (in this thread, from now on) if they are seen, and then we will do our best to have that particular ad removed as soon as possible. These ads are an unfortunate necessity, and can not be simply removed altogether, or this forum would quickly be removed from the internet as the monthly bills are in the thousands.

    To make things easy, there are a few things that we have to know before reporting the ads. First, we need an image of the ad, the best method would be to take a screenshot of what you saw, as that can not be changed, but the company responsible for the ad can always change it if it is left on their end. Secondly, we must know the URL the ad links to, without the information for what website is being advertised, we can not have them removed. Both of these things are a must, and only if they are provided can the ad be removed in a timely manner. Thanks for your understanding.

    Is it crucial that we have audio advertisements?!

    There is an ad on here advertising nasal congestion or some rather and it sneezed repeatedly while I was listening to a song; I thought it was part of the song :arg

    There is a new one, also by the same company (aspirin), when you hover over it, it drops down and blocks all the links so they aren't accesible. D:

    Are you sure you're doing it right? It got adblocked just fine for me. Did you adblock all data from that website or did you just adblock that particular one?

    AD COMPLAINT:

    Every time my mouse land on it, it gets big. That's not the problem. When it gets small again, I can click on my User CP or the other things that the add covered.

    I doubt you'll be active anyway...

    An ad for Yellow Strom or something is covering half the page when it pops up. I'd take a screenshot but I haven't personally encountered it yet.

    This ad seems to be causing severe problems, clicking anywhere on the page leads to http://www.grippostad.de/grippostad/home.asp. Even if you don't click anywhere near the banner.

    Reporting an ad that seems to only exist in the last page of the Cute Asian Girls FC.

    Here is the picture:

    Spoiler:




    It leads to: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kick-ass-destroy-the-web/id436623109?mt=8&ls=1

    I can't click on anything in the thread until I press ESC, that will take away the fireworks at the top left and the facebook stuff at the bottom right. The App Store link at the top right will still remain however.

    Link to the FC.

    There are 12 year olds might be innocent kids on this website.

    They might be cheering, but I doubt their parents are.

    I'm still getting that ad a week later.

    I'm also getting this:

    Ever since we started getting 2 ads, they've been getting trashy.
