I think I should be thankful, but I am curious. I haven't seen any advertisement in the top banner ad for quite a while.

There are still some pop-ups now and then, but in the area where the ad should appear at the top of this page, there is a message that goes like this:

Who doesn't like the little Flash game ads you can play? It might be too easy to win, but that doesn't mean they're not fun.

In most of those ads, you don't need to win to "win". C'est--dire, you can click anywhere to "win", even if you're supposed to hit a target.

Exactly why it's too easy to win. It's still fun shooting around.

I'm not entirely sure, as it never happened to me before.

Did you try refreshing it?

I copied and pasted that from the area where the ad would appear. I can click on that area, but nothing happens.

Nope, no filters at all.

Also, whenever I post a message, I don't get automatically redirected to the thread.

ROFLMAO.

Double-clicking non-hypertext does nothing, but select it.

CC's tips on those "Shoot the <Insert random noun here>" games:
  1. Right-click the banner
  2. Uncheck play
  3. While the movie is paused, rapid fire and rake in the hits
  4. Close the advertisement window that comes up

Have fun!

I find the site gets a bit ,, for lack of a better word "buggy" at times , especially weekends. It could be a combonation of the hg server and explorer server "traffic jambs".
I've noticed a bit of posts in the mod forum where people are crying that the blacksmith won't let them download ,guess what part of the week they show up ?

I thought that the dial-up ISP would be causing the "problem", but, now that I have my cable ISP back, the advertisements still don't appear.

Clear your history and cache?

I believe HG's ads are all hosted on burstnet.com, can you go there?

I had to refresh the page quite a few times to actually get in.

Thanks to swp, the ads are back.

There used to be a link to an "inappropriate" (for the age group this game is intended for) site (through a rather graphic ad) on the main AoKH page in 2000-2001.

I'm looking at an ad for cheap web hosting on the top of the page.

Oh great. My History was recently cleared and the ads are gone, once again.

I can't get on to Burstnet to fix the problem, as I did before.
