Top Web Games

Post by Helfdane on Tue Apr 22, 2014 8:16 pm

Looks like Top Web Games just changed their voting system into one that requires you to watch a video to get the code at the end in order to vote. I don't use such sites, as an FYI.

I haven't had to watch a video, and I don't have Adblock on at the moment. The button says Play but just reveals the capatcha

Never had a video before neither. But I remember we removed that site because of the forced advertisements.

They only do it in some countries as far I heard.
I tried to contact them, but again they choose to ignore us :/

Well it seems to only force me to watch the video when using Opera browser. I switched over to Chrome and it displays the message without having to watch the video.

Odd, because I cannot vote on BBOGD in my Chrome browser. I have to switch between them both to get all the votes done.

Nope, got the Dish video with Chrome again today. Had to watch the video for the code. Annoying as hell. I like to support the game, but I hate being suckered into media ads more.

Few years ago the owner of many voting sites (including TopWebGames) tried (and succeeded) to sell them. The site got bought by a company with mainly one purpose, making money with advertisements. Since then many voting sites where removed from the net and the others went straight down-hill. After-all nobody likes to be spammed with ads all the time.

What do you propose us to do? What are our possibilities?



- Finding a decent replacement for TWG?(I tried that several times already, turns out I couldn't find any.
- Remove all voting from the game? The 2 other voting sites are more for the show then they have any effect.
- Create our own voting site? Promoting TGL on that site and create a board for RP-players?

- ...

Not much you can do to change it. I'm just venting my annoyance Smile
