Ohai thar. Am I the only one seeing those randomly underlined words around the site, and if you hold your mouse over it, an advertisement shows up? It's hard to write invisible cute little messages when those like to bust you like that.

"No what is it you're talking about?"

If you guys don't have these all over the site, then I think I've been hit by a ninja advertisement virus of a sort. o_o I recall to have seen something like it on another website as well...

That's in your end, Kirluu. Do you have any special toolbars/search bars installed? They often do this.

Only thing I have to add is that I never noticed the advertisement on the sides and while you wanna write a post, until I accidentally switched off my AD Block...

^ You should put an exception in for Mobafire if you actually care about it. :P

It's on for every site, not that I wouldn't care about Mobafire, but I actually kinda like seeing the background.

Not to mention that blocking it or not won't make a difference since I don't have any attention to click it at all.

You don't have to click it for Mobafire to get revenue from it. Same thing with streams and sites like TGWTG, you don't actually have to click the ads, just watch them. Nobody actually clicks ads. :P

Yeah I know, "pay per view" and stuff, but actually it kinda (really really really really) annoys me seeing the little sction I actually visited the site for surrounded by a s***load of ads, like being bombarded by them.

Take Moba for example, those side-ads of Aion/Siedler etc rly kills the subtle layout.
