    That's a good point about trying to help out Star Wars fans by finding them a date.

    It's still pretty annoying. I know IGN controls the ads but I only see the advertising getting more blantant and obnoxious with the "new" TFN.

    I'm getting the Single Me ad now and it has the name of my city in it.

    Darn you, IGN.

    It is in extremely bad taste to have smoking ads on a site that has a vast amount of underage users.

    As someone who is celebrating being smoke free for over 9 months, I resent being taunted with winning a flat screen TV in order to get cancer and die infront of it.

    Oh please. It's not like underage people never smoke or drink.

    Hey S_N, that is what a lot of tobacco companies are in trouble for. Or at least one of their many troubles.

    There are also underage people out there who do drugs and kill other people. Do you condone ads for drugs and murder?

    K, then.

    Drugs and murder are illegal. Please do not compare them to underage smoking.

    Porn is legal. Let's have some porn ads!

    "If you're over 18, click here for nude pics of Natalie Portman!!"

    Hi everybody...

    An ad update. I am going to be discussing this new assortment of ads with IGN. I'm not happy about them either. Though we don't have specific control over them, they do need to understand our displeasure with them.

    [PhilipWise]: "Though we don't have specific control over them, they do need to understand our displeasure with them."

    That's... ironic.

    Regarding the ads, I don't really care one way or the other, but I do find it interesting that I get a whole whack of ads for matchmaking services specific for my geography. They must be using my IP address to find that out. I never saw the smoking ads though.

    I'm looking at one right now. It says that if you're over 21 and smoke, then you're eligible to win a TV of some sort.

    Please...

    If you own the site, you can control what ads are on it. If they were really displeased with them, they wouldn't be here.

    Jesus would not approve!

    Thanks for the update, you would think since your the owner you get to say which ones stay and which ones don't get displayed. I hope

    We have no control over the ads that are displayed on the site. However, as Philip said, he is contacting IGN to see what can be done about them.

    With that said, there's nothing more that can be done about this, so I'm locking this thread.
