These annoying ads pop up all over the place, like "zezimas password", and "free runescape hacks". Also, these may put adware on your computer. Is there something that can be done? Derilith 16:24, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

I hate the new ads. They are very distracting and take up a lot of the space on the page. I don't like monobook's ads, either, they cover up some of the words. That's why I use quartz. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 18:24, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
For me (a monobook user) the words tend to cover up the ads. Which is fine with me. And I don't get the "Zezima's password" ads from Google or whatnot, either. Monobook ftw? --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 18:37, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
So we should all switch to monobook, then? Planeshifted 23:46, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Monobook and the old wikia skins are best then, because the Monaco skin's search bar is annoying. You have to wait for the "Search RuneScape...." thingy to load or else if you type there, it removes your text. Derilith 11:46, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
We can't change to monobook. A lot of users wish to move towards the future (Monaco). Personally, I use Monobook too and I do find that sometimes ads cover up writing but I learn to live with it; Monaco and quartz ads are really bad.. Chicken7 >talk 12:56, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
Can't the monobook advertisements be fixed? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 20:07, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
Some of these ads are causing my IE to fail ("Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site Operation Aborted"). And then "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". I understand the need for advertising, but the ads shouldn't interfer with viewing the Wiki! Hatchenator 16:49, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
I have the same problem! Sometimes my internet can't even hook up to the homepage, and my computer isn't even a year old yet. I think that the ads are some of the most annoying ones I've ever seen in my life. Blue partyhat.png Islwyn Talk 12:31, 12 July 2008 (UTC)
Just as a "by the way," I didn't know there even were ads on this site thanks to Firefox and the plugin "AdBlock Plus." Might want to look in on it yourselves. I agree that what you're all describing sounds very irritating, though OOZ662 13:23, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
