Ok riven... Huh Huh Huh Huh
What ever you attempted to add regarding the pop up 'It seems you're using a Ad-Blocker' is forcing my computer to scroll down automatically, rather annoying mate.

Would be nice if this was removed ASAP, k thnx.
Not going to be using a forum that biffs my web browser/controls it lol, sure other people won't like it.

EDIT: Now it's saying: 'You seem to be using an ad blocker. Please disable it, while we let the webpage scroll by :-)'
Yeah no thanks... Clueless

Just add an exception in your adblocker for java-gaming.org Pointing

It stops when the plugin doesn't mess around with the DOM anymore.

You're going to leave something here that's glitchy and irritating?
It just keeps scrolling rofl, infinite page space? no thanks.

I'm not adding a exception rofl, disable this bogus ass update. Sad

Knowing Riven he will now write code so that we dont see anything with javascript disabled.
However I would rather eat raw eggs than disabling ad blocker - Not going to happen.

What ever happened to adding an exception for specific domains... we only show ads of games of members of JGO. No ad networks are involved.

Lol Riven, if you only show ads from games of JGO members, than what's the point of this new 'update' mate?

Wow my bad XD.

Never even knew all that stuff was down there (Statistics and such), had AdBlocker+ since day one.
Still see no ads though :/

Lolz, when I do disable my AdBlocker+ that guy who managed to hack his 'Music for your game' into the 'Featured Project' section is gone.
Don't tell my that's why you implemented this? D:::

That's why I removed it. I was looking for something more subtle anyway.

It's rather shocking though how entitled some individuals think they are when it comes to free services.

Sending ads, even via automated software connected to the internet, may be a violation of Pickleninja's terms of service. Are you sure that's fair criticism?

Now there's some fishy shit going on? Cry

I automatically get logged out of JGO randomly.
Now I've automatically been logged out FaceBook also?
And it's not because of my AdBlocker+, I just checked.

This is exactly why I didn't want to disable my security LMFAO.

I mainly hate ads because it makes everything hectic and disorganized.
On top of that most ads move and/or blink - its incredibly annoying.
Just go to a mediafire download without ad blocker - thats what I mean. Ads are seldom integrated nicely.

on jgo its alright, but the moving has to stop and it needs more variety... its just 3 puppygames games over and over again

Also, you know, the script doesnt seem to work quite right, because now that I think about it, I do see the jgo ads even with ad block enabled... I guess it only blocks some, depending on the source
shameless plug: titan attacks, with the little annoying thing moving left and right

Well, I don't want this to become a thread to nag on Riven's work / JGO's website ads lol, so this thread could be considered closed I guess.

He's solved the problem temporarily it sound like (Simple if statement, basically just disabled it Lips Sealed), doesn't matter if it was from my asking or not Yawn, at least it's gone.

I wish there were enough developers of games wantingto host their ads for free on JGO. As long as there's a lack of that, the games of Puppygames will be in the majority.

Anyway, to wrap it all up, yeah, I did some nonsensical things, mainly for fun, realizing it was a bit annoying, but not realizing how incredibly annoying it would be. Further I assumed that adding an exception for java-gaming.org wouldn't be much of a big deal, not taking into account corporate environments - I never had such locked down devices in my previous dayjobs.

Why (on earth) I did it:
This all started when I had bug-reports coming in from people that said the JGO layout was screwed up: huge empty spaces (750x750 px) were small banners should be positioned. When I traced it back to AdBlockPlus, I was mildly annoyed that its intrusive code had cost me yet a few hours of my time, so I decided to write some javascript to detect that ad blocker. After the detection was done, I wrote a few lines of dom/css manipulation to focus my frustration. This version was never meant to be permanent, it was more a proof of concept that the detection actually worked. It was stupid to test this code publicly, I admit that.

Once I figured out what triggered AdBlockPlus to ruin my layout, I quickly made some adjustments and the result is currently live. If it breaks something on your machine, or is otherwise undesirable, please unleash your terror in this horrible thread.

'This horrible thread' lol. Emo
So what if they have some Images missing on their computer, that's their issue.
If they don't like it they can disable their ad blocker so they can see them, or go pout. Stare Stare

Better to have some 'blank spaces' here and there than to 'feel' like you're having a website take over your web browser. Cry

Lol, no one knew this was a 'Live Test' to see if it worked or not lol.
By the way you kept replying I was lead to think that you we're insinuating that we'd have to compensate on our end for this update.
If you didn't want this 'Horrible Thread', think ahead next time and make a announcement that what you're doing is a 'Live test'.....

Anyways, thanks for removing it Riven, no need to reply.

It's scary how right you are. People don't want to see ads....at all! As long as ads aren't flashy, big, and intrusive (Youtube, I'm looking at you -___-), I don't mind them. I have Adblock installed and have had this site and many others whitelisted for ages.

Summary of Gabriel this thread:


XD, You're retarded mate.
I don't post images to 'indirectly' insult members on JGO, nor to directly.

Is JGO not the right place for me?
I come here for help, and to show off WIP's.
Seems like there's a bunch of smart asses here who tend to aim at me.
If you don't like the way I talk, there's a 'Back' button on your browser, get more familiar with it when you want to post insults on a programming forum where a thread's been considered answered / closed.

FYI: Picture has no relevance, I didn't give anything / expect anything from Riven.
He programmed something that was out of the ordinary / unneeded, I didn't like the way it interacted with my browser, I made a thread about it.
