Yea, I saw the Hatsworth one back in the day, too, but not the Boom Blocks. Also, this thread was in reference to the forum ads, not that it matters.

I'm in Australia and all I get ads for is Amazon UK.It costs 8 pounds to ship a 10 pound game to here!

Of course, Hatsworth was indeed worldwide. Silly me. Funnily enough that actually led to us doing the interview with Kyle Gray!
The forum ads are the same as the ones throughout the site, it's only the main channel homepages that get the Boom Blox treatment at the moment.

Honestly I didn't mind the Hatsworth one a single bit. It was the first I'd heard of it, and since I saw the ad every day on the site, I did research on the game, fell in love, eventually bought it, and found my favorite DS game yet.
So the lesson here is: when NL picks an ad, it's worth having. When the adserver picks an ad...well...God knows.

True dat. The adservers were advertising Homebreware and Unlimited Wii Downloads on Wiibrew and Hackmii, it was especially funny because they're being advertised on pages about piracy hurting the industry and Homebreware being a scam. Fail much.

Just like to add that there is a tasty-looking Velveta ad running on my end right now, and it's making me really want some Shells n' Cheese.

I saw the Henry Hatsworth ad. And I really hate the pizza ad.
I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

We've seen some complaints about the Ubisoft Advertisement Banner that's affixed to the top of pages on the site. We'd like to get a bit of feedback on how people feel about this form of advertising and how it reacts to your browser. Any feedback is appreciated.

It doesn't quite move right when I scroll, and it gets in the way when I try to change tabs (i.e. if I instinctively move my cursor straight toward the tab instead of circumnavigating the ad, it will become emboldened and start to grow in size, blocking my screen even more).
If it pays the bills, do what you need to do. It doesn't bother me that much, but I definitely prefer normal ads as a user
33. Posted: Fri 5th Jun 2009 22:45 BST
It's a bit obtrusive and even I've run into trouble trying to add things to the site. We'll see what kind of feedback we get and go from there.

I find it annoying but being honest, I've seen worse. Lke that one on IGN for the NPC release of DK Jungle Beat at the moment, the type that just appears in the middle of the screen suddenly.

As of lateley there are WAY TOO many adds. The annoying ones that move mostly. I used to come here because the add were minimal. Its just getting out of control now.

@CorbieYeah, as much as I like those games that its advertising, I really hate that Ubisoft ad! Whenever I use my Wii or PS3 web browser I just can't escape the darn thing; it just keeps getting in the way and I can't disable it! Ugh, its so obnoxious! I don't always get to use a computer so for now I just have to put up with it.

The Adblock Plus and NoScript combo for Firefox works ever so nicely. While I allow NL to run its scripts any of the ad service sites are completely out of the picture.

I'm not too bothered about the Ubisoft ads, because I like to play a game to see if it can catch up with me when I spin my roller scrolly thing on my mouse.When I'm changing tabs on the 'site though to things such as "Forums", the videos sometimes appear and get in the way.

Agreed. I use my PS3 to access this site fairly often, and that ad has been a HUGE hassle the past few days.
