I've been an enthusiastic participant in WR this past month, even making alts on a couple most needed realms to try to help get better data there. Today I saw a banner ad for a program to hack and give a char higher attributes. I want nothing to do with hackers and will not support a site that takes their ads. Which means it's time to say goodbye and remove Census Plus.

This site, and everything related to Warcraft Realms has nothing to do with Hacks, Cheats, powerlvling service or anything.
Its just a nice way to make money to keep servers up, since Rollie gets payed for showing them.

Can you please point out the ad or URL where the ad comes from? It is likely a google ad which I can easily ban, but I need to know where the ad is coming from.

I tried to find an ad for what you describe and I could not get anything like that to show up. If anyone sees ads for cheats/hacks/exploits, please let me know so I can get them removed. Most of the advertising here is served from 3rd party networks so I don't always know exactly what is showing up.

1st, very sorry for assuming you'd given the ad your ok.

Here's the link:

*LINK REMOVED BY ROLLIE*

Shows up at the top when I click on US Realm data.

I appreciate your principled stand and will stick around. I look forward to continuing to contribute data.

Does it show as a google ad? I am assuming so, but it's not displaying for me. At any rate, adding this site to my banned list for google.

Also, I edited out the link now that I have it to remove.

As soon as I posted that link I realized I should have emailed it to you, but I had to run. Thanks for removing it from my post and removing the ad from the site. I look forward to helping update your data.

I guess we're resorting to holding our Censusplus.lua files hostage now.

World of Warcraft.... and Google ads = Gold Selling + Power Leveling ads =(

You'll notice very similar ads are found on sites like Thottbot and Allakazham as well cause they use Google Ads =(


Can't really go to any WoW site without seeing them. So just live with it and don't click on it =)

Secondary market and pl ads are not currently banned, but any hack/cheat/exploit ads are removed as soon as I'm aware of them.

works for me.
