Additionally, since WarLight displays ads, players must also abide by the rules imposed by the advertisers. The following is not allowed to be submitted or linked to:
pornographic content or links to pornographic content
erotic stories or descriptions of sexual acts
sexual jokes
erotic or sexual forums


Wouldn't Pooncrew/squad/Queefballs (Only clan I can think of with a sexual joke theme) all come under "Sexual jokes?"
If so that would mean Fizzer is going against what the advertisers have put in place... Wouldn't that put the future of Warlight/zone at risk?

Why do the advertisers put in these rules? Is it because they believe under 18s play or for their own benefit?

Discuss.

Yes. But I'd change it in a heartbeat if I could. I don't want this name and would never fight for it.

It was also a stand to show that Fizzer doesn't do enough to enforce the rules around here, i should have been banned multiple times but this is different...

If I'm right then Fizzer would lose his advertising revenue if the advertisers found out. Nobody wants that.

(Name change is only $4, pretty cheap. Guess It'll get changed next pay day).

There was once a thread about the 18+ ads that came up for certain region players! So I am not sure, it is so clear distinctions here. I do not meant exact porn, but 18+ dating sites and other nifty tools-products that will do miracles in your bedroom ads have been here!

Yeah I've had "Adult toy" adverts pop up once in a while. I believe they're targeted on your history.


SO no one cares that Warlight could lose it's advertising revenue if this got out? I'm being serious here. This could affect the future of the game if we don't start to enforce it.

^Don't try and derail this.
It's hard enough to get people to pay attention to the risk of warlight being shut down due to lack of funding because of the sexual jokes that Advertisers do not allow on the websites they advertise on.

While advertisers may claim they don't want these things, all they really want is views and clicks. As long as some keyboard crusader doesn't start petitioning them to stop advertising on Warlight, no amount of clit jokes are going to result in anything. The only things that may cause advertisers to pull ads is outright pornography, and based on some of the ads I see most would be ok with that as well.

If you're concerned about the future of the game I don't think you have anything to worry about. If you just like bitching about other's crude humor then GTFO.

Actually I care about the game which is what my crusade is all about.

This is now two sets of rules that state Pooncrew etc shouldn't be using these jokes/names (At least not in the public forums. I've always said their own forums are their own domain and their own rules.)

It's sad that we don't actually enforce rules here. It will be the downfall of warlight if Fizzer gets his bigger playerbase. They'll just see rule breaking and assume it's OK. We'll then have a big problem.

I've seen it happen in the past and I don't want to see it happen here.

That only works if you're not being yourself. We all know this.

We really need mods with power. Pointless posts in threads like natto just put should be deterred and in a lot of forums they'd get banned for repeated offences of that nature.

The amount of dating ads I get is unbelievable, and I also agree, there should be some limits on what types of ads come through on WL. What if my niece or nephew were sitting next to me and saw one of those ads. Seriously

MrHymen, I agree with you in principal. However, sometimes you need to know when to give up. The Poon Squad has been on Warlight for quite some time now. If Fizzer was ever going to ban them he would of done it by now. You're just going to have to accept them, unless they start posting outright porn I doubt they're going anywhere.

You're a young person and think it's wrong? Why are you on this site that has gambling then?

Learn to read Genghis :)


Eklipse I wasn't only talking about Poonsquad. Once again, learn to read.

I would laugh manically if because of them we lost adverts and this game was shut down though. I'd then create Warlight 2.0 with decent moderator powers and active devs who communicate :D. That really is all this game needs lol. Would sort out 99.9% of the issues.

Forums are not for general conversation unless that is what the thread is about.

I guess that what MrHymen is trying to say is not that he's troubled by the presence of sexual toys ads on his own page, but that he's concerned that the presence on the website of people with names referring to sexual stuff may cause troubles to Fizzer due to the ads; correct me if I got something wrong.

Honestly, I always thought the ads were provided by Google based on the user's own history, but judging from the rule Fizzer wrote, ads may also depend on the website content: in this case, the point brough up by MrHymen makes sense.

The forum spammers obviously didn't understand a thing as usual

Everybody gets where he is coming from. But do you really think the advertisers care if their adverts appear on a website with users who have sexual names for themselves and clan?

Let alone how would they even find out?

Just feels like an attack on pooncrew imo.

Seems like you're the one who needs to learn to read. :)

The entire start of your post was referring to the Poonsquad. While you threw in a few other questions at the end of it this entire thread is obviously about them.

No, I just couldn't think of anyone else at that time. There are plenty of other players who use sexual themes as a basis for their name but they're not in our faces. As such at that time they were first in mind.

Let alone how would they even find out?


With all the rules they're trying to put in on the internet and the looks of someone like Trump getting into the White house, they'll start either fighting or following his/other peoples ways. If they follow (Which they most probably will being american business I'm on about here) we'll see a lot more enforcing of rules that weren't even considered.
Consider me crazy but it's a huge possibility.

Just feels like an attack on pooncrew imo.


I don't attack players or clans. The rules are there for a reason and it's either follow them or change them. Breaking the rules always brings bad tides in the short or long term. They're there for a reason.

@buns: Advertisers just don't like seeing their product associated with certain things. For example, Coke doesn't want their ads displaying next to pictures of domestic violence on /r/beatingwomen2. They want to control their brand. But I don't think they particularly care about Warlight since it's not that big of a demographic and not very egregious, either. And sexuality probably isn't the biggest of their concerns- especially given its prevalent use in advertising.

I gotta say something... I got an identical ad (buy Orphan Black season 3 on dvd now please) on separate websites... including this one. I have watched that show exactly once.
(also when I do my looking at women I do it in incognito mode)
