Hmm...
I just got the email today that basically said to remove all ads from pages containing any of the following:

  • erotic stories or descriptions of sexual acts
  • sexual jokes
  • erotic or sexual forums
  • sexual or profane terms in the URL
  • crude language or excessive amounts of profanity

So we're in some deep shit, since I'm not a fan of restricting your language (the nudity will have to go, though, for those of you posting in the thread in The Flood). We have 3 days to resolve the issue or they'll stop serving us ads and leave us up a creek.

I suppose I'll start looking for some alternatives while thinking about how to get out of this jam.

EDIT: Guys, I need everyone to start reporting posts that contain nudity and porn. You won't be banned for the content that is reported, but the images and links need to be taken out.

EDIT: I've disabled thread replies from being viewed by guests. This should help us keep our advertisements; just make sure to make the OP relatively clean, guys.

Nothing. I'll just not serve ads for that forum.

Hmmm I've used AdSense a lot for stuff and I never knew this scenario was possible.

We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty
and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.."
I suppose we all thought that one way or another.

So regular Bungie rules in the forums? Though, with Flood more laxxed than the rest of the site. Anarchy weekend will keep the no rules policy, obvs.

Yeah, I'm looking into it now. Apparently Adsense is known for being picky like this, though this is the first time I've been called out by them.

Geez come to think of it I don't even know a single other ad provider, let alone one that is trustworthy like Google.

The Flood is gonna have a shitstorm if they have to give up profanity and certain innuendo.

I've found an alternative that I think will work. They're harder to get into, as they require 50,000 page views per month to even be considered, but we've got over 700,000 so far this month so I think we're OK.

Adult content and adult content links will have to go outside of Anarchy (which will not have ads), so no more spoilered porn. They're not specific on the language requirements, but they don't like excessively crude or racist language, so that'll probably be something I start looking at.

He'll get over it. We need ads to support the site.

It says "excessive vulgar language" is restricted, so as long as it's not too bad and you're not just throwing them around like a maniac, it should be OK.

That's really silly.
It works a bit differently than Adsense (which also bans bad language). Advertisers bid on us for a slot to put their ad up. Since we're pretty popular in terms of page views, I'd say we should do alright so long as we are accepted and abide by their rules.
