This is a petition to remove the new ad campaign and have it reverted back to the old layout of ads.
I am greatly dissatisfied with the recent changes in the "New ad unit." For myself and others, it ruins the user experience because instead of unobtrusive and relatively ignorable ads, we now have giant, obtrusive ads. There is no easy way around these for users, as another user said, they are not coded to be easy to block, they WANT it to be a pain, easy money for them, right? I want this to change. I want Curse to care about their users and their opinions, not only about their pocketbooks. The bottom line is, without us, you have nothing. Give us some respect as we have to you (before this horrid change). If this is not changed, I can guarantee you'll notice more members leaving.
Please leave your name on the list below if you disagree with the "new ad unit" and want these ads gone. If you disagree, that is fine, I am not here to debate my opinion, but I am open ears to all responses.

Some great guys messaged me these links which when added to your filters block all the ads. A great way to help stop this "new ad unit" it to make sure they don't make a profit from it Note: You only need to add one of these to your filters. minecraftforum.net##div[id*="ad-container"] www.minecraftforum.net/public/js/3rd_party/anchorad.js
Naw, that's nice, isn't it? A company tries to get money so that it can continue supplying you with what you are using, and you try to make a petition against it? The only problem with it is the bad sizing, but that's it.
Nice? Yes. Purposely coding an ad in a way that infringes my personal privacy settings is always nice. I don't mind taking my ad views elsewhere if it means I won't have to deal with obtrusive ones.
Either way, they won't be making money off me, I have them all blocked.
I wouldn't mind it nearly as much if it dragged down at the side of the page, but as of now it's quite annoying. Maybe if they made it a little skinnier or something, but right now it takes up way too much of the page.
Don't put my name on the list, I'm not really against it, I just don't like it. If they need to do it, they need to do it.
I don't mind ads. It's their way of getting money. What I do mind are the ads that take up half the screen or the ones like SteevyT posted. Those are annoying and intrusive. For now I used ABP to stop those, but the one that SteevyT posted pops up, but as a blank box. STILL annoying and hard to close...

The laws of magic are absolute. The laws of physics are optional.
and wow, mc forum censors curse words. boy have i been gone a while. i didnt know we didnt have any 1st amendment or anything... oh yeah thats right, mc forums is based out of the UK. figures.
The first amendment states that the government can pass no laws infringing on your freedom of speech. Curse and the MCF administration are not the government. The forum is a privately owned service and they have the freedom to set any rules they wish for its use regardless of where the server is located.
Yes it badly designed and I personally hate how they have implimented it. However I am not against them making money via unobtrusive adverts. Sometimes I have disabled ad block to allow sites and youtube channels to make money off of me because I enjoy their content. If they start ramming adverts down my throat for no reason than a blatent money grab, ad block gets turned back on for them.
However this one the anchor still stays even when the ad itself is blocked. It is annoying for a general computer user, I shudder to think how it is on an ipad or mobile device.
Don't sign my name for this proposed petition, I just want them to change how it is implimented.
