You may have noticed some new ads on EQ2i. Before you go off on a rant fest, we would like to remind you of a couple things:
- We (eq2i) did not choose for them to be here
- it is just the way of the internet. Things cost money, and ads turn into money. They are what keeps EQ2i free for you to use.
- We (eq2i) do not choose the placement of ads
- that was Wikia's choice based on the sales environment in the advertising world. Whatever complaint you have, we're pretty sure someone else has raised it by now. See wikia:Forum:Wikia's New Style
- We (eq2i) do not control which ads appear
- We do not pick the ads, nor does Wikia. The ads come from various sources. Some are auto-detected based on the contents of the page(s), some are direct-marketed. Wikia does not even have full control over them. However, Wikia can pull certain ones from the rotation for various reasons. See Bad advertisements on Help.wikia for the procedure on how to report a "bad" advertisement. Please do not report them to us. There is nothing we can do other than forward it onto Wikia Staff.
If you see an ad for plat selling sites, botting programs, powerleveling services, or anything that is against the EQ2 EULA, please use the Bad advertisements page to report it to Wikia.
If you see an ad that may possibly be the source of a virus or trojan, first, report it to Wikia. Second, log in so you don't see ads.
We would like to remind people, that if you are a registered user, and logged in, you will NOT see any ads, other than on the main page.
