Whatever you do, avoid clicking the ads at the top of the page. It has come to my attention one says "Download" "Play Now", that is NOT the game download, the game download is not out yet. I have also seen one where it says "You are the 1.000.000th visitor! Click here to claim your prize!*.

It can affect your PC with spyware, malware, keyloggers, or worse,

Just a public service announcement. Thank you for your consideration.

Just to add on, I made a big mistake when I clicked one of those. Now, I didn't know what they meant, so I thought "hey, I can play (example!!!) GTA 5 for free!" and then clicked it. It infected my computer with a trojan which destroyed every last file, and wrecked my computer. I had to get a new one. Thanks vemrall, for bringing this to our attention. Hopefully nobody will suffer my fate.

Also to add to this, clicing these ad's will/might infect your computer. If it does it will not be the forum admins faults it will be your own.
If this happens to happen I suggest getting someone to get all those viruses out. I wish I lived near all of you so I could help you, but sadly I can't!
But if you gett a virus I can either get someone to help you, take you through steps, or give you advice on what to do.
But please,please,please don't click those ads(they are a destructive weapon)!
If your having any problems Shoot me a PM!

The ones that seem the most innocent (from major companies, or seemingly so) are actually the most devastated, I've learned.

Computer viruses are nasty and hard to remove. I've never been hit hard... But I had a Trojan program once that I deleted before anything devastating happened.

And no problem guys, I care about the safety of my fellow forumers.

If all else fails can you buy the advertisement spots out? Like get people to pay money to buy the forum page so no ads are needed. Also, to anyone with these ad problems you can download a trustworthy protection software to keep most of these ads off your screen and away from your desktop even if you do accidently click on them.

DeathSkull is the only one with the authority to pay. Since I cant, I decided to keep you guys safe.

I suggest to not download anything, it might seem trustworthy but it may not be. Don't click those ads at all is a simple response.
Keep checking your computer for viruses if you have cicked an ad, and like I said above if there is a virus get an professional to check it out and leave it alone until they chec it because if you don't know what to do and how to free it you may mess up your cmputer and it will breakdown and you will have to buy a new one

Is there a way to possibly cancel the ad? Or do you have to pay, as a bribe?

We would have to pay. But we are going to be moving (GONNA be rough doing this) about the time beta comes out.

If you do happen to click on it, and it infects your whole PC/Laptop. Try System Restoring it back to a Restore Checkpoint you should of had. If you didn't, try getting AVG Antivirus. It helps detect the virus and kills it.

Just a tip Smile
