That was introduced in case people were clicking the spam links. It’s not a new addition either; it’s been in place for quite a few weeks.

if it is for decreasing the spams then its totally alright!! but why i do see spams still.

ahh and it is not new, i was away for 2 weeks or so, but what this has to do with anything Dale,  i didn’t mention the word new in my comment, i hate this addition, it like “Hey are you giving up on us and going away to another site than us, what did we do wrong, and why are you leaving

and if some weren’t up to rebuff it, i myself, talking of myself, it is too distracting and feels like site wanna lock you in. 

and whatever you say Dale., (yeah Dale!... the one i m always afraid of) wont change my opinion it is like you are beseeching members to stay,  “pleeeease stay” it so humiliating for a site of/at this caliber

Think what you like. It’s there for your protection from dodgy links. Nothing more to it than that.  Also helps counteract the search boost they’re trying to get by having a link referring from AG.

I think the site may be slightly underestimating the intelligence of its users if it thinks anyone here would believe AdventureGamers is responsible for that Strözencrantz Hair Growth Formula website they’ve landed on, in addition to believing we would even click those links in the first place.

Then again, the way advgames are being dumbed down recently, nothing would surprise me…

I have known perfectly intelligent people to make dumb mistakes with regard to dodgy product websites on the internet and it’s pretty obvious why the exit page exists tbf, Advie.

But onto more pressing issues, can someone please link me to the Strözencrantz Hair Growth Formula website, please?  Asking for a friend.  Shifty Eyed

I can take care of that for you.  Just send me $49.95 in 3 easy payments via credit card. Your friend will have his flowing locks back in no time!

Why would this be an issue for somebody? Like other people have said it’s there for your own protection. I’ve known a few people myself becoming a victim to phishing links ‘cause they were in a hurry somewhere and didn’t double check the link. Are you really going to say you’re going to check each and every time 100% that the link is let’s say to adventuregamers.com not adwenturegamers.com? Blink and you might miss it and then you’re screwed just like that. If you get a message telling you that you’re leaving adventuregamers then it removes the possibility for human error. Why would anyone be against that?

I agree, personally I think there are people who just like to complain about everything. I don’t conceive how that little warning can be so annoying for someone, on the contrary.

I don’t like that we have to add the page in between, but with the amount of spam and scams going around we sadly have to. There’s links on the main site (in news posts, games pages) that don’t have this in-between page as we can obviously validate that those are good links. We will only show this if we can’t be sure upfront (which most forum posts are, due to being user-generated).

Having 1 extra click really should be a big deal, it’s not like I’m asking you to solve a puzzle or something. If it’s a big thing for people I can look into making his configureable on your profile page. Let me see if that’s an easy thing to do, the folks that really think this is the worst thing since the dawn of time you can change it for yourself in that case.

*Edit* I do notice it does it to news posts or articles as times as well, will look into fixing that

Fixed this, you won’t see this on the news or articles pages anywhere (shouldn’t have been before, but I see there were cases where that did happen).

Boy am I eternally grateful for that! The day this site starts using those puzzles that I now need to do even for a simple Google search or to log in to Steam, I’m gone.

When we do start using those puzzles, they’ll be catering to the AG crowd. Think the Chinese box puzzle in Shivers, or the lock-picking puzzle in Post Mortem, or even the Babelfish puzzle in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
If you want to leave the site, you’ll have to solve one of those first. You’ll be trapped here forever!!!




Alternatively, we could turn it into a QTE.





Oh, we’re not doing that.
Never mind!
