Hot, Spicy, Sexy
The Most Downloaded Woman On The Net...

Um, yeah thats the ad on the front page, it is really your decision what you want on the site, but personally I think it is not very suitable for a GW website.

I'd be willing to bet that your computer has become infested with some kind of malware that's blocking the gwonline ads with that one.... Somehow I doubt that gwonline would take advertising from something that's NSFW. :)

Chaotic one

Yeah i just started getting that one today. It's not the first add like that I've seen. I also remember about a month ago there was a thread about the choice of some of the adds and how they say the forums is pg or family...whatever they want t call it but have adds like that on the main page.

I dont know what you guys are talking about.

That seems like a totally appropriate ad for GWO to be running.

Some people are "uptight" about that kinda stuff, probably a number of reasons why they think that way. Honestly ... They need to re-evaluate their opinion on the subject.

I've met some women through stuff like that and 2 of them are on my friends list in GW. :x-snow2:

Well concidering guild wars game is rated teen and not mature that adds targeting an 18 or 21 and older audience I don't think is apropriate for an elite fansite of the game. The rules don't specifically state you must be of a certain age or older to use the site. However I think these ads would fall under the inapropriate images prohibited in the rules. To some people images like those in the mate1 adds are softcore porn. Thus parents who feel this way and see their kid browsing this site might get the wrong impression. Aside from the ads images themselves it could be possible that children could be exposed to pornographic material since the sites are aimed to an adult audience.

I sent a PM to I think it was Chantal with my objection to the mate1 adds not being apropriate.

That girl in the picture I posted certainly looks like shes up for sale. Granted, shes plenty hot, but it is an 'intimate dating' site, and a she is topless... looking up at the camera like the first panel of a group of teaser group of pics from a porn site.

*THATS* my objection to it. I have nothing against porn, or even these dating sites, but one of the sites advertising with something bordering on softcore on GWO, a site with no inherant sexual side, *is* inappropriate.

The top advert I raised issue with when I first saw it and Rush was looking into it. I've not seen it since so I assume the agency removed it.

The one for the ad agency is fine. It's a little suggestive. I'm just pleased to see the general public feel that gamers would be interested in dating.

To the person that thought the ads didn't appeal to gamers:
