Easiest way to report an advert for a non-RuneScape/FunOrb game:

  • Click the advert and you will be redirected to the game's page
  • Record the URL that is now in your address bar
  • Use this URL as the "LANDING URL" under the report

Please report any adverts which advertise games other than Jagex Games (RuneScape, FunOrb, etc.). This includes anything from single player games to much larger games such as WoW. Jagex has expressed disapproval of fansites showing ads selling Runescape gold for money, and Tip.It has ALWAYS tried to comply with this policy - please DO report such ads and we will take action ASAP.

REASON:Unauthorized Use Of Website Material

 

I made an account on this website just so i could bring this to your attention. I use this site often, it is an invaluable tool, i certainly don't want someone tarnishing the name for profit. Look around on Ebay. Just type "Runescape" and you will find a few.

TYPE: Pop-up

SITE: Unknown

MY LOCATION: United States

REASON: Every time I refresh or visit a new page, it immediately pops up. The pop-up blocked bar is annoying as well, it scrolls the screen just enough for me to click completely unwanted buttons by mistake.

TYPE: Popup

SITE: Various

MY LOCATION: UK

REASON: Constantly popping up at EVERY single new page i load on Tip.it. Just one after the other. I've noticed that over the past few months they have just become worse and worse. Now they're near intolerable. I've used Tip.it for several years, but this is driving me to consider other help sites. Please tell me if something can be done about it. (OMG! I got a popup just previewing this post! Arghhh!)

TYPE: Top Banner

SITE: Tip.it forums (location) (World of Warcraft is being advertised)

MY LOCATION: USA

REASON: It's another game. Jagex doesn't want platinum fansites to advertise other non-Jagex games. Just keeping up with our image :thumbup:

LANDING URL: https://www.netspend.com/prepaid-debit-card/applyNow.m?AID=MCSUMMER2011

TYPE: Top Banner

SITE: NetSpend

MY LOCATION: United States of America

REASON: The advertisement is causing half of the page not to be clickable. Its glitching it out making it impossible to click tip.it links forms and pages. I am having issues all over the site including in the forums. Its ruining your site and forcing me in many cases to seek other sites.

ADVERTISER: M&M's (candy)

LANDING URL: http://www.mymms.com/default.aspx

TYPE: Top

SITE: M&M's candy

MY LOCATION: U.S.A.

REASON: Every time that is the top ad it loads just the ad and stops. I have to reload page to see forums. It only does it when I click forums. Never the main page.

 

I don't know if this is a glitch with tip.it's ad or is it something on my end? Here is a screenie of what happens

If it is something on my pc sorry. If anyone has advice on how to stop it I would appreciate it. Thanks.

ADVERTISER: Virgin media

LANDING URL: http://shop.virginmedia.com/broadband/up-to-50mb.html?buspart=VirginMediaFebruaryDR2012Cable&TribalFusion

TYPE: Top Banner and Side Banner

SITE: 50Mb broadband/Shift2Unleashed

MY LOCATION: UK

REASON: The Flash movie loop is more than distracting - the flashing images make me feel queasy

 

 

 

Can the TipIt webteam consider offering a 'Close Advert' button for registered members? This means that we can read the ad, then focus on following the guidance information while playing Runescape without a maddening series of flashes in the peripheral vision - its possible the virgin ad is breaking epilepsy guidelines.

 

Love your site, should have joined up before - shame its to enable a complaint
