On Ad Matter

Recommended Posts

So, this happened. We are beginning showing ads to our visitors really soon.

Before you freak out: no, they're not those intrusive ads that everyone hates to see and never clicks on. 
How they are different?

First of all, we're not showing you random ads from common ad platforms. Those platforms are spying on you, collecting data about your internet activity and preferences, and, let's face it, are generally annoying. We already know what our visitors are coming to us for and displaying only relevant ads.

Secondly, we advertise only hand-picked items. For now it's just 3 video game titles: The Elder Scrolls® V Skyrim®: Legendary Edition, XCOM® 2 and XCOM® 2: War of the Chosen which is about to be released. We are honest with our users so we don't advertise games we can't currently mod due to technical reasons (namely Skyrim: SE). And guess what? Yes, those titles are generally cheaper than elsewhere, depending on your region.

More to it, we are not using any third-party content to show ads. There are no external images, stylesheets and, more importantly, javascript files for showing the ads. It's just a hyperlink and an image inside. That's what native ads are: zero GMOs.

Last, but not least, the ads are never being shown to our dear Patron members. Thank you very much for your support! ❤️

Finally, as you may have guessed, we are designing those ads by ourselves. In fact, they're created by Vector himself. Look at them: they are gorgeous!

Why are we doing this?

As you may have noticed, we are experiencing downtimes and occasionally fail to serve downloads recently. We're in a constant search of better options such as a CDN for serving our downloads and CMS upgrades to keep the website safe and full of new features. As we struggle to do all those things and keep pace with an ever-growing audience and similarly ever-growing bills, we have to find ways to offset some expenses.

As always, we're open to suggestions. Feel free to express your opinion below or PM any admin.

Kind regards,
