What's up with this new adblock nag? I've checked out what's being blocked and they're all trackers and scripts. Zero chance I disable my adblock due to the nature of the content on this site. I don't believe there's even ads on this site anyway. Are the site owners that clueless?

I don't know wtf do you people want. You realize that it costs money to have a forum like this right? If donations are bad and ads are also bad, how to you expect them to find the money to keep this running?

I've no problem with the donate nag. If that pulls in some revenue then so be it. But the ad nag pops up on literally every page you navigate to. A single nag when you visit the site would be fine. But the current nag is so in your face that it makes me wonder if there is a nefarious reason behind it due to the trackers that are being blocked. Again, the contents of this site are illegal in many places. Not a single user here should be browsing without an adblocker if they live in such a country.

You're just gonna drive everyone away with constant messages about adblock. The donation messages are not nearly as annoying.

The popup is annoying, but I'm meh on it. The main issue is asking to disable ad-blocking, which usually also meaning disabling blocking trackers, cross-site scripting, etc. That is a terrible idea for so many reasons.

There are other ways to get money besides ads. Take a look at zonegfx, their method is download links are behind a "points" pay wall. You get 100 for free upon visiting this site once per day (just stay logged in and hit refresh). Download links are usually 50, but are often 500 for early access to asset releases. Almost anyone can get by with downloading stuff with free points, but those who want can buy points if they wish.

The thing is, LC is often not as fast as *U95 when it comes to leaked games. The main difference in content is the restricted section. I'll bet if those links were behind a points paywall, the money would flow. It is a unique service that LC provide which is usually more difficult to find, why not monetize it?

That sounds way worse and incredibly tedious to be honest, I honestly doubt there's enough users here for a paywall to do anything but drive the majority of users away.

I wouldn't mind this if the paywall was reasonable

Ask for donations with a banner? That's annoying and begging.
Forcing threads asking for donations? That's even more annoying and even more begging.
Ads? Fuck no.
Paywall all download links? Yes, that's fine.

I have no words...

I have a number of privacy and security tools for my system, and some of the adblocking is zeroed out as traffic calls from my firewall/router. As a result no matter what I click, I get a pop-up every single page I go to here now. Sad.

Well that is a problem in and of itself. There are less users here because LC doesn't have much that separates it from other pirate sites. If LC can't get by with general monetization like ads, then leveraging it's unique aspects is the only solution I see. Zonegfx gets away with it because they frequently acquire assets earlier than other pirate sites and quite often aren't available to pirate anywhere else. All I'm saying is exclusivity can be monetized.

I wouldn't mind this if the paywall was reasonable
It's $5 for 1,000 points on zonegfx, it would take 10 days to accumulate that for free. At 50 points per download (or I guess per thread in this case), a free user could download 2 games per day, which is 20 games in 10 days. Plus, the access doesn't expire either. There is some variability in price when it comes to user created content such as conversions, models, textures, etc. and they charge varying rates (usually 250 and under).

Plus, I'm sure donors would be exempt or given a truckload of points.

I didn't say paywall all download links, just the restricted section. No one is going to bother with points or paywalls for regularly leaked games like Grandma's House. They could just go to Z95 or Patreon/whatever.

I'm well aware it's futile talking to most pirates about paying for stuff, but LC can't pirate their way into server hosting. Money has to enter the equation at some point, and something has to be offered that is worth paying for without being so instrusive as to drive everyone away.

Based on the math I laid out in another reply, how many people here are playing 20 restricted adult games in 10 days? In addition, how many games in the entire restricted section are they playing total? After a month they would have access to 60 games for free. Are there even 60 restricted games they would want to play? I signed up for zonegfx in mid-July and have over 7,000 points (after using 1,700) without spending a single penny, that's 140 games assuming LC uses a similar system. The objective isn't to recreate the Berlin wall, a points paywall should be a speed bump that limits how fast free users gain access, not limit access entirely.

Heres what I see as a casual viewer of several different forums of this kind. Not one of them has intrusive pop ups. Not one of them has banners. Not one of them have posts begging for money required to view every 4th day. The only one doing those things is this place.

You probably just have adblocker on so you don't see the ads. Cuck95 for example, if you turn off your adblocker you will see the same type of ads. I think you just want to complain for the sake of complaining. No one here is forced to support the forum. I get that this is a pirate forum and most people here don't like to pay for stuff, but money doesn't fall of the sky and running and maintaining a website/forum costs money.

Yesterday, I could not log in because Disable adblocker came up every time despite it was already disabled. I have Vivaldi and uBlock origin, disabled for this site. BTW I can't see any ads.

I'm done with this site anyhow.

I posted about this adblocker nonsense yesterday and a mod took it down.

The mods on this site are second rate and kiss ass with the boss and some devs and have absolutely no concept of what moderation actually is. Hint people - use alt accounts for your modding, so you can have your own voice with your own accounts.

Anyhow, this site had one thing going for it only, and we all know what that was. Otherwise it's just a shadow of all the the other sites out there doing this same thing with adult games. Adding this adblocker crap just turns Lewdcorner from a useful place to get the fringe games easily, in one place... to another click-bait and phishing spam porn site that will die an ugly death.

Good luck owner.. hope you get that computer chair you so desperately need. Of course, maybe that money should be invested in business classes instead... ya think? lol
