    Embracing with clothes on in a nonsexual manner is a perfectly normal and innocent scene.
    Firstly, please don't insult me.

    Secondly, you may note that I described what was offensive in gender neutral terms when asked for clarification and only described the Ad itself in the required description of my first post. You are reading intent into what I said that isn't there.

    Lastly, I would have the same problem if it were a guy grinning or blushing while holding a female and both were clothed. Kissing is a public display of affection, but this Ad looks very much like either at or one step after the point where the forum rules require the roleplaying section to "draw the curtains and fade to black". It's suggestive content.

    To quote United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart: I'll know it when I see it.

    I am not attempting to read any hidden intent. There is NO offensive nature to the ad. The pose and ones similar has appeared in countless media in a non-sexual context without controversy, and even by outdated standards the girls are very well covered up.
    I was not insulting you. Simply stating how your reaction was coming off. Using "gender neutral" terms when explaining your reasoning also does not change anything. My point stands that you seem to be vastly over reacting to this ad and situation.

    I don't remember where, but I recall the Giant saying that kids visit these forums and they try to keep them kid friendly. There are some areas where it's a bit less so, but if they go looking let the user beware. However, if a kid comes on these forums to discuss computer game strategies and they see the Ad at the top of the screen, they didn't go looking for it.

This is to both a) abide by the forum rules and b) to keep things relatively family friendly.

    Mods have had to remind people in the past to pull the curtain early and not often, and this is possibly the issue that has caused the most mod interventions in this subforum. Remember, there are other roleplaying forums on the internet that are rated R (or X ), but this is not one of them. Keep it clean, and remember we don't need to know where everyone's hands and lips are at all times.

    Safe: "Romeo pulls Juliet into a kiss and the curtain falls."
    Potentially Problematic: "Romeo kisses Juliet passionately, his hands reaching under her bodice and..." (foreplay goes on for numerous posts before the curtain falls)
    Quote Originally Posted by Roland St. Jude View Post

    Ultimately, whether or not this is innocent enough to allow on top of the forums will be a decision for the Giant to make. I have posted about it to bring attention to it because I'm not convinced that it is, but if he says that it is, then it is.

    It does seem best to leave this until Rich can make a decision, aye.
    In my personal opinion, I've seen far less "kid friendly" ads in more "kid friendly" places, to say nothing of television ads, billboards, and all-ages movies with more sexual scenes than just two people being near each other.

    1.) Date and time ad was visible: 5/15/17, 4:30PM Central time
    2.) Region (Pick one: USA, Canada, Europe, or Rest of the World): USA
    3.) Location of ad (Top box or bottom box): Top Box
    4.) Brief description of objectionable content (including a name or other identifying characteristic):
    I discovered an advertisement that was either deceptive or actually broken. The image for the ad as seen on the forums is this:
    Spoiler
    Show

    However, when I clicked on it, it took me to a very different website with an order form for some muscle drug. ...usually.
    When I first right-clicked the image to copy its location, it produced the location of this image:
    Spoiler
    Show

    For some reason, this was the case for some parts of the image, but not others. It looks like the ad has fixed itself since then, but I'm not sure why or how.

    EDIT: Given that the ad seems to be fixed after a page refresh, the problem was probably in my browser rather than the ad itself. Sorry for the false alarm.

    1.) Date and time: 5/26/17, 2:30PM Eastern time
    2.) Region: USA
    3.) Location: Top Box
    4.) Brief description of objectionable content (including a name or other identifying characteristic):
    The ad was the one for Monster Clash, which while not great is not objectionable in itself.
    I ran into a problem with this ad very similar to the problem in my last post, except that instead of linking to an alternate ad, it linked to one of several pages that were quite obviously hacks and redirects. Also like last time, the ad started leading to its proper place after a few tests and works fine now that I'm here reporting it. I'm going to pave my browser to remove whatever embedded code might be there, but if it does turn out to be a Project Wonderful issue it hopefully won't hurt to have a record of it.

    The ad is directing me to the advertised page, but I'm seconding this report. The first thing you see after clicking through (after a loading page) is a very scantily clad cowgirl. The game seems to be less than safe for work.

    We have a thread exploring reports like this here: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showt...g-on-the-comic

    I can't get it to appear for me personally, but the more and better data we can collect, the more likely we are to figure it out. Best current guess is malware on your machine, but other answers may emerge if we get additional info.

    It looks like in this case it's been taken care of by one of the mods. But going forward, that "report post" button Fri pointed out is the best way to bring something like that to the staff's attention.

    Not an ad, but a spambot named sicantik is posting literal porn as part of some of its posts.

    I also reported in through the usual channels, but I figured you'd like me to stress this a little bit.

    I have got a few notifications from Malwarebytes while browsing the forum, telling me that it had blocked the website users.on.net for phishing. I don't know if it's an ad that is being blocked (I use adblocks), but it seems to only have happened on giantitp, so I'm posting this. From the Europe region, 23:21, 16.4.2018.

    It's not an advert. And please report to Malwarebytes that users.on.net is a false positive. The domain belongs to a major Australian internet service provider.

    The appropriate place is to click on the little grey triangle icon in the bottom left corner any of his posts (it'll turn red when you hover over it). You can also contact the subforum mods for action, listed in the main forum page under the subforum name:
    Ongoing Games (In-Character)
    Play-by-post games are going on in this forum as we speak (well, read). All threads on this board are actual games, so please, only post on a thread if you are a player of that game.

    Deep in the corners of your mind
    Where reality is an intruder
    And myth and legend thrive

    Heh... in all my years I've never noticed that icon. Guess I'm fortunate to have never needed it until now. Thanks, will do.
