Can something be done about this?

@admin or some other VS member

Every time I open a page of Xtratime I have this banner



Ok, I do not give a **** about the message, whatever it means (diversity, prejudice, bias bla bla bla) is acceptable. The problem is that if two children appear every time I open a page it becomes sort of NSWF. I understand that we are not talking about naked children, but the people who see it might think: "Children? What the **** is he reading on the internet?". So please do something about it: put back the two 18+ women or 18+ men or whomever you like for the "love has no labels" adv (possibly not two transgenders but it's better than children anyway). Try to take care that people who are 18+ appear in those banners so that it looks like an adv in favor of diversity and not in favor of paedophilia.
Thank you!

XT has banner ads?

install AdBlock Plus, it takes you like 30 seconds

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes?

I am seeing a different ad from Toni, and for some reasons the ad didn't go down too well with my boss

The ads are generic, based on your browsing history. If you want 18+ girls to show up you should browse sites that such girls visit.

I'm not kidding here, and I've said it before, if you look deep down in your soul you'll realize that Romanians are master race.

Seriously, I don't get the connection of my browsing history to "love has no labels". I could understand "love has big boobs"...

Hey there,

Note that we have sponsor ads which are paid for by vendors and sponsors on the forum, which are usually related to your interests on the forum.

And then we have AdSense ads which are based on your own browser cookies, searches, and general interest. Browsers use meta-tagging to direct what they think are ads that you're interested in.
Which of course, is not always accurate but also based on your own internet activities words entered into search bars and posts.

Try to get new sponsors 18+ so people like Toni dont get in trouble.

Quick google search gave me this result:


This can also help younger users or potential teenager who only just discovered the place to stay responsible.

A Kia is a very affordable and efficient automobile. You should definitely consider buying one.

I also vote that the condom above should be the banner for this website.
