Smile Punch the Baby!

This is a thank you / suggestion.

I've noticed that this website is very ad light. The ads I've seen also complement the color scheme of the game.

Please never ever get animated ads that show boxing gloves floating in front of a dancing baby with a kaleidoscopic lollypop and a party hat and flashing text that says, "Punch the baby for unbeatable mortgage rates!"

Ok... maybe you can make THAT one for April 1st...

But, seriously, thank you and don't change.

We only have a couple of advertisements on the public character profiles page.

We decided when DT was just a baby that we wouldn't support our games with advertisements unless we had no other choice at all (and have designed it with such a philosophy in mind). We honestly believe they cheapen the whole experience.

I'm not saying that will always be the case, but it's not something we ever want to do if we can help it. We're big fan's of not having clutter intrude on the fun. I'd say if we do ever put in ads they'd be removed automatically for anyone who'd ever spent 1c with us as well on anything.

Naturally, we have to adapt to the market conditions as they change.. but as long as people keep funding the game with enough advantage purchases, it'll remain free to play for the masses and ad free too.

Oh right, those ads, don't really spend much time on those pages that the ads didn't really register

Unobtrusive ads tucked away in the corner (like on the PCP pages) are ok, specially if they are ads for similar games, but not ones like that one for better wages that has a hideous growl/bark when you mouse over it (damn thing nearly scared the crap out of me the first time ah did that with headphones on)

Spamming in the 'we dont do advertisements' thread is pretty poor form, even for a scum bag spammer.
