I have an animated gif version, but for some reason it exports really weird, the alpha tweens don't fade right and the text shows up as 2 black lines. Here's the .swf

http://spamtheweb.com/ul/upload/030609/6 3080_addblock.php

if anyone wants to help me fix the problem, please pm me!

I'm glad you're taking such a lighthearted stance on this contest, Tom. And buying something from the store is a good alternative way to support the site. I would, however, like to contest what you're doing.

I get up and fix something to eat during a commercial break or often change channels. I go to the theater late so I don't have to watch the ads and can just watch the movie. I use callerID to screen strange numbers so I don't have to deal with telemarketers. And, yes, I run adblock for all the websites I visit. Are you not guilty of any one of these things?

The whole reason someone runs adblocker is because they aren't interested in the ads. So by finding ways to get around adblocker, you're targeting an audience who doesn't want your business in the first place. Does that make sense?

I mean, you make a living off two things. Random flash artists submitting expense free content that generates interest for the site, and jamming products into peoples faces. BUT HEY - everybody plugs ads into everything anymore, and it sure beats working two jobs. But I think that whether people want to view those ads is their choice... and why shouldn't it be? Viewing the site is free. If they're not interested, they're not obligated.

===

I presume it's more of a lighthearted joke than anything. But with all these blocker bashers, I think a counter view is in order.

Also, to the bitch whining about ads. The ads generate revenue just by being shown. So turn off your fucking ad blocker or get ready for this shit:

Since only people with ad blocker will see this, we might as well call them out... Something like:

"If you're gonna block the ads, at least buy something from the store!"

I can see it now; "NEWGROUNDS WANTS YOUR MONEY!"


You will bow to me!

While I may not agree to your opinion, I'll fight to the death your right to defend it.

But seriously, what's the big deal with seeing an image that says "Hey, please support the site in another way if you don't want to deal with an advertisement."

In your quest to sound arrogant and obnoxious, you missed the part where Tom said the ad blockers break the wide layout. This is merely a creative way of rectifying the situation.

Since everyone wants to toss their two-cents in, why don't I go ahead and bring the count to what, like $0.40 now? For all of you out there who want to block the ads, you're robbing the site of revenue, which puts cash in the pockets of the staff, and guess what!?! The staff doesn't like having their hard earned money taken! So if you want to continue to use this site, which by the way, is provided free of charge, why the hell not pay those who slave over a keyboard to provide you guys with a fun site to hang out on!?! Hmmmm? It's at no personal cost to you, and these ads aren't HARMFUL in ANY way! So how 'bout you stop complaining about it? If the page takes too long to load, how about paying the cash for a Fiber-Optic or DSL and not a 56K? And the thing that really pisses me off is that Tom mentioned that the Ad Blocker screws up the wide layout, so ya' know, there go the staff, working on a solution caused by those of you out there who are robbing NG of income with your ad-blockers... I mean seriously, it's 2009, not 1989, if you have to complain about a page taking like 2 seconds more to load, but then go and waste the time downloading an Ad Blocker, you seriously need to step back and consider the consequences of your actions...

Now, if you'll all excuse me, I'll go click on some of the ads, because I don't go out of my way to begrudge anybody of their hard earned profits...

I run ad blocker but I always white list newgrounds because it blocks some things I don't want it to. I think the only advantage to having it is to block crap popups and ads on pages your only going to once. I usually have to white list all the sites I visit regularly.

I think that some people fail to understand that using Newgrounds (or any other website for that matter) for free is a privilege not a right. The website is payed for by the advertisements and the Newgrounds store so be grateful that no one forces you to spend money here. By putting on adblock you are stealing from Newgrounds and it is unfair to the staff and the users.

If Newgrounds wants to put up a home ad to be displayed to those who are using an advertisement blocker, then so be it! You aren't FORCED to come here nor are you FORCED to use your blockers, I'm sure they won't miss you because you never really cared about the site anyway.

Of course, ideally, just donating like 1-2 dollars per year to NG would greatly surpass all the money you generate with ads through your visits on the site.

I was an adblocker, (or ad-fag as I hear them called), but it broke the layout, and since BT upgraded our craptastic rural connection to not-shit, I figure why not just see the buggers, you guys gotta earn a living I guess.
Definitely have a pop at this one in a bit!

The NG store accepted paypal before the redesign in 07, but was removed for reasons I do not know.
