    Edit by admin: we are currently making changes. Don't worry, these are going to be gone soon.

    I personally don't use AdBlock because I like to support the sites I visit. However, when ads become intrusive or there are an overwhelmingly absurd amount of them being shown on one page, that's where I draw the line. This is seriously making me consider an AdBlocker. Anyone else think this is too many advertisements for a gaming forum?

    Use it. ads are a huge vector for spreading viruses and maware and there's little to nothing the sites you "like to support" can do about it except kill all advertising thru the "big ad" providers altogether. If the ads here or on any other site are safe now, it's just an outlier and likely to change without warning when least expected. Be safe, use an ad blocker, support them in other ways if you can.

    Okay, is there any one in particular that you'd recommend?

    I have also noticed these ads, as well as a few invisible elements where some of the ads would appear

    Thanks, just installed it. I hope the site admins realize how much this slows down GBAtemp and web browsers as a whole on low-spec devices like mine.

    As far as I'm aware, it'll be changed soon. Admins are trying out new ad platforms and are aware of what's going on with them.
