Paid for accepting ads

Day 1,885, 08:55 Published in Canada Ireland by Technician

I hate ads and I remember years ago when the eRepublik considered ads; I was so happy they backed down.

They need to pay for servers, programmers or there be no game, so they allowed people to buy gold.

Imagine the eRepublik one day said if you accept ads we will compensate you by giving you "some" eRepublik gold.

Would you put up with ads for gold?

Maybe willing to support ads myself depending on how obstructive they are and how I would be compensated for putting up with ads.

Personally I don't mind the idea, like you said it depends on how obstructive they are. Its not like I need the far right/far left of my screen for anything anyway. What I really miss are citizen ads, I thought those were fun.

I remember when we had those "finish this ad thing and get gold" thingys way back lol.

I would not put up with ads unless they drastically made the game different.

I loved the citizen ads.

Yeah... I'd activate them... and then block them.

I wouldn't want external ads on the game especially the ones that really distract. I think it takes away from the game and the personal experience.

I don't know if I'd put up with them in exchange for gold, but I'd certainly take them if it meant changes for the entire gold buying system.
