Will our whole screen be covered in banners?!?!

This is getting ridiculous... 3/4 of our borders are now covered in banners. I buy gold when I need it, but I don't want to be annoyed and extorted into doing it. This is crazy! And now Dream World is barely functional!!! The top banner is covering over where the stats are...so I can't even see how much money, moons or experience I have. When you open the task bar, it's impossible to X it out because of the incompetent banner they put. You have to refresh your whole stinking page and wait for the ads to go by all over again just to close out the task bar. This is losing it's entertainment and joy value as a game for me. Anyone else having these issues?

    Try installing an ad blocker like AdBlockPlus or, like me, use a browser that has one built in like Opera.

    I see no ads at all  !!   :¬)))

    I hate the new popup ads that cover the playing field so you have to clear them to get to your areas. Ridiculous! I've never bought anything these ads promote and never will. Please get rid of the ads that obstruct play! ☹️  @Uncle John (AU1) Thanks for the heads up on Opera. You're right, it has it's own ad blocker. 👍

  • What is it with all the adverts people. Not only do we have to have them pop up every time we switch farms but we also have them down the right side of the screen. Tonight I come on the game put my screen on full screen now the whole top of my screen as more adverts. What the hell people. You are going to be losing players. People come on to play the game not to look up adverts. Any chance we could have them removed please

    Same problem with me, dream is impossible to play. 
  • Same with me, I've lost about a quarter if not more of my screen to banners, I have to say I'm losing interest fast. And I think they are going to be losing quite a lot of players through this it's ridiculous

    @goodmichelle45 (GB1) I agree 100% that these ads over the playing area are very annoying and need to go! 🤨

    ublock origin for chrome-based browsers is very very good! - User configurable too!

  • Yes, I am having trouble.  Part of my farm is blocked because of these banners

  • Also, the banners are useless - Just a quotation on a grey screen and it say the IP address is not available

    Refrain from multi posting

    Use paragraphs instead of separate posts


    Try an F5 refresh they are not meant to cover the game

    And do contact Support

    @RosyStarling The banner across the entire top of the screen is an ad for an adblocker.....



    The most annoying is the ad in the bottom left corner of the screen.  The "X" to exit out is super tiny and even when you clear it, another one pops right up! 🤨

    Ooof! - That is intrusive and terrible!

    Ublock origin should be able to remove it (unless they keep changing the ID)

    I am on Opera and I don't get those banners or ads, but as of yesterday my screen has shrunk to 2/3 size and the top and right side is just blank. I assume that is where the banners you guys are talking about are placed. I can't play like this, having to scroll around to view my farm. I have re-freshed, re-loaded, re-booted and re-thunk playing altogether. I stopped playing for over a year when they re-worked (made a mess of) the laboratory, and if this isn't resolved soon I am gone for good.

    You are not alone. I too use Opera and as of 5 mins ago I also have a big white stripe down the left.  :¬((

    Today, for the first time I too got these intrusive, irritating banners on screen. At SKN1. I use Microsoft Edge and was considering changing to Opera, but reading comments above I guess there is no point at the moment.

    Please, those in charge of placing the banners --> get rid of them! Figure out a place to put them that does not ruin the game.

    Hello, can i ask, to keep the advertations away, is it every 60 or 30 days necessarry to buy gold ?

    I think it is 30 days now, but i'm not sure :smile:
  • RosyStarlingRosyStarling Moderator, ModGreen Posts: 3,442
    @domino666 (INT1)  I moved you to the discussion on the advertising

    You need to have a subscription or spend the smallest amount of gold  for the ads to go away for 30 days

    See my note above don't forget their is a  Feedback button and Support for direct contact with GGS
