Ad-Block banner ad's 2009-06-05 20:09:02


For those who have not yet discovered the awesomeness of ad-blocker, or who enjoy being constantly pestered for some sick, sadistic reason, here are the banner ads that Tom put up because he is a total fucking dick (but honestly I'm not going to pay attention to them at all, and the main reason I don't click on ads is because I would prefer not to get a shitload of spyware and buy 9000 things to get a 'free' Wii). Also, Tom, there is still an option to adblock the images and frames from appearing. I could just right click on each image and select that option and your brilliant plan will fail miserably. Also the main purpose of Ad blocker is to filter out annoying ads from OTHER websites. Nobody cares if you promote your own website seeing as we are already using it o_o. Anyways,

Ads are what Newgrounds uses to make money.

If you are blocking the ads, you're killing Newgrounds.

I don't care? If it helps, I didn't use adblocker before I was made aware that I would see super secret shit if I did.

Does NG make money if I only see the ads while browsing the website, or if I click them?

I have adblocker, and it blocked those too.

If you want, you can always right-click the new banners and click "Adblock image".

Of course, I left mine as it was...

You're a complete piece of shit if you do.

We can always buy stuff instead of seeing ads? Just because I have adblock doesn't mean I am a douche out to destroy the site.

No, you need to uninstall Adblock or AT LEAST let Newgrounds show ads. Stop being an asshole about it unless you want to pay $10 a month to post your bullshit on the forums.


I dont even.

I think you are overestimating how much ads generate per user. At most, I'd generate maybe $1-2 a month, which I would have no problem donating on a monthly basis.

Response to Ad-Block banner ad's 2009-06-05 20:24:35


wow the ads really arent a big deal to me, i dont even notice them anymore. I guess you are just living up to your user name

Response to Ad-Block banner ad's 2009-06-05 20:25:27


Yes it does. Newgrounds hardly profit from the store AFAIK. If we assume you watch 5 flash a day at 5MB each and you're a member for one year. That's 25MB a day, mulitplied by 365 that's almost 10GB of data, so Newgrounds pay for 10GB of bandwidth for you to watch flash,

10GB on a dedicated server is only about 15-20 cents. Clearly you have never run a website before. If I spend $20 in the store, that would be enough to pay for the bandwidth I use per year.

Response to Ad-Block banner ad's 2009-06-05 20:33:50


Ohh, I just Adblocked the ads that you put up for Adblock users. WHAT YA GONNA DO NOW, TOMMY BOY?

I love it when people leave gaping holes in their cunning plans.

Response to Ad-Block banner ad's 2009-06-05 20:34:54


Newgrounds makes money through the ads. By blocking them, your pretty much saying, "Fuck you Tom, no money for you." Not to mention the ads arn't even that big and are off to the top or the side of the page, so it's kinda hard to notice them once you have been here awhile. Also, I found one of my favorite sites (MangaFox) through the newgrounds ads, so they arn't all bad. Also also, I think the Ad block banner ads are pretty funny.

Response to Ad-Block banner ad's 2009-06-05 20:37:04


Yeah. I blocked the anti-adblock ads also. It made me laugh.

On a tangent here, assuming anyone with knowledge reads this, does anyone know why there isn't a place on the site to donate directly?

What? The Adblock shame ads are on?!

I was really looking forward to them despite their angry message!

I dont use adblock but those ads are funny.

Also, I spent 40$ on the store, so never, ever, think I havent contributed anything to this site.

I'm ashamed/ embarrassed to admit that I'd never really thought anything of blocking ads from like, everywhere on the entire internet. In the world.

Now that I've been shamed by the empty black box saying "SCRIPTED AD GOES HERE", I'll change my attitude towards the net in general, start giving money to all the penniless hobos I encounter and probably stop stealing charity boxes from poorly monitored stores.

Thank you Tom Fulp, for teaching me the error of my ways. Also, the Castle Crasher figures I bought were totally worth the billion dollars in shipping, handling, taxes, handling, moulding and handling charges I paid.

Seriously, I'd love to stop blocking the ads, but then I'd have to stop blocking the ads from everywhere, and I'm sure you know how much hassle that would entail. I'm only one man! Sure, I could just uninstall the adBlock software, but that would require far more effort than this post did, especially with all this alcohol in me. Cheers much, and I promise the day I win the Lottery, you're somewhere on the list of people I'd donate to.

Of course. Its all fun and games, until someone gets poked in the eye with a dick.

I am almost completely positive that NG gets paid for how much people visit the site and/or click the ads. So they still get paid even if I use ad block.

Response to Ad-Block banner ad's 2009-06-06 02:26:38


You can block those too if by adding a filter for newgrounds.com/promo Those flash ads for lame RPGs are simply distracting and annoying and besides, can't disable it and restart Firefox every time you want to go on newgrounds.

you can just whitelist this to stop the new ad's from showing up.

Also there is a tool to block Iframes and the like, go here.

once installed you can use ctrl+shift+k to select any page element and block it. You can also access adblocks element list by hitting ctrl+shift+v. The more you know.

Hey, if Tom can poke fun at us, we can do the same to him! Since I'm already blocking the real ads, blocking his joke won't make him lose anymore money. ;D

I think they're annoying as fuck. I use adblock for a reason, so I don't have to see that shit.

So I just blocked those images too. It's not like I owe Tom a damn thing.

then quit going to newgrounds. The ads and the people who support them are what's keeping this site alive. Without that, you won't have your 4 year old 6000+ post account and there won't be any flash or audio portals for people to post creative stuff and make a few bucks off of it.
