    I've been playing for a little while and I just wanted to question the decision to run advertisements on the forums when people already "donate" to keep the server up?

    Seems a little shifty to be honest. I've never seen another server run third party advertisements on their website considering they can lead to scams ect on your users...

    This is why I'm quitting the server.
    The staff just don't care.

    Running ads isn’t exclusive to just this server’s website. Staff are very busy trying to maintain the server and don’t always have time to respond to inquiries like this. If it bothers you that much why not use an adblock?

    Because I often used my phone to view the drugrun site, which I don't have Adblock on.

    Drugrun is literally the only server I have ever played that displays advertisements.

    Both Maxito & Flavour responded to many threads about trivial shit since this post has been up. They have just ignored it because they know that running advertisements is scummy, considering that the server gets donations.

    This is the last time I will bump this thread in an attempt to get a reply.

    EDIT:

    We tried to reply the first day you posted but somehow it is preventing us to do so, neither me (maxito) and Flavour both can't reply on your thread for some odd reason. Yeah I know it sounds like bull but it's actually true, the reply button for me just greys out. But hey this works :)

    Having that said, the ads we have are non intrusive and even though we already receive donations, we invest thousands into advertising and server/development costs so every little bit of funding helps.

    If you don't like the ads, use an adblocker, or simply just don't visit the site :) Locking this thread now.
