Ok not to break out the stir stick, create chaos, or start sh-t...... But logging on today I see a ad at the top of the page, a free online game "World of War Planes"? Of course that's usually a header reserved for Anime/Drama or Site News and now I'm seeing this?

Please don't tell me we are already going to start seeing ad's on all the pages? It's on the right window bar also. I loved the sales ad's for anime related collectibles and such but now this? Tell me I'm just over reacting and it's not a normal thing? I see the same thing on Facebook and other sites too BUT........... I pay for the service here and have so for almost a year now. I know I'm still considered a newbie here compared to many of you.

More curious then anything.

Sorry to tell you but there have been game ads, among others, there before. It isn't new. Of course I only see ads when Adblock isn't working.

Websites need money in order to run properly, ads give them the necessary funds to do so, CR does a really good job of not over doing ads, so some ads are ok, but when a website gets infested then its not fun.

I'll admit I wasn't expecting to see it logging in today... but I have also seen the banner be for games before, though usually Anime or Japanese related. I have also been on CR for only this year so it's not like its completely uncommon to see.

As for ads I have always been a member so I never see them.

Those ads that take up the white space on the home page have been around for some time. Even back when the Kingdom Hearts remake came out there was an ad for it in that space. They were probably around before then, but that's the only thing I can name with a date I know of.

Pretty negligible though, it never bothered me anyways. I can always tell when I'm randomly logged out because it has some info about a show I should see when I register, or something of that nature.

If you are seeing ads on websites such as facebook or crunchyroll with a paid membership, it means that you probably downloaded something which included enabling ads on almost every website... I had the same problem, seeing ads on facebook in home when facebook is supposed to be ad free and stuff...

unless it's flash because I flash block, I find flash to be too intrusive

I haven't seen them but as long as it does not affect watching anime I don't mind there being ads like that if it means they can get more shows.
