Why on earth is thereso many ads on here, makes the place look ugly. I have heard that if an owner has ads on their site they are getting paid for it. So what is the point in donating?

Hi RyanA

 

Just use ublock origin extension in your browser and all the unwanted ads just disappear.

Hi RyanA

 

you are not being rude for stating an opinion

 

Maybe the site owner has to have ads on his site because it's very expensive to host all layouts on a server.

Hey RyanA

 

Most websites do use GoogleAds or similar to help fund their running costs, I have always used Adblocker which as the name suggests blocks them and keeps everything tidy.

 

Deffo worth installing. 

 

:D

Are the ads that much of a problem? Ad revenue goes towards site hosting, it’s just a way to offset the cost. You can’t expect someone to host this amount of layouts for free, someone has to pay the bills to allow the site to exist. I don’t expect that the ads bring in a lot of revenue to be fair.

It is possible to download the hosted layouts completely free of charge. Do you think the site owner should get rid of the ads and pay out of his own pocket for your privilege?

Do you download layouts from here? Do you donate or subscribe?

It's clear who Ryan A is, as I said in the post about the latest slotsrus release. The account was just set up, so they could chime in again on the same old arguments.

 

I'll give you a clue, posted 39 posts in about 3 days. Now I wonder who that could be.

Hi wearecity

 

I have no clue who this member can be so why don't tell everyone who you think he is.

Seriously.   Ha ha, no way.   Name and shame.   It's sad, it just keeps the whole ebay thing current and keeps the negativity fresh, maybe that's the point.

 

If anything has come from the whole ebay saga its that DIF and MFME has been tightened up to hopefully detract from this type of thing happening again.   Though if someone wants to do this type of thing then they will find a way.

 

I won't go on anymore about this, I get on very well with Geddy, he's a top bloke and a massive asset to the fme scene.   It's just my personal view.

I didn’t think it was mate. I only mentioned you to clear up that my view point wasn’t anything personal. ;). But looking at what I posted does sound like I thought it was you. Sorry about that, I didn’t intend that to be the case.

I have a good idea who Ryan A is now... lol.

Every site I visit has ads, hence the adblocker extension in my browser lol.

 

I'm pretty sure everyone has some form of adblocker installed.

 

Get over it and move on, and be thankful that you have so many slot games for free.
