As of the 20th of June, GameFAQs became infested with in-topic advertising. This made the people who actually saw it very annoyed, while the rest of us were just bemused and smug.
If you want to join the ranks of smug people who haven't seen an ad on GameFAQs in years, this is how!
STEP 1: Get Firefox
You should have done this already really, but if you still use Internet Explorer now's the time to dump it.
STEP 2: Install addons
You want Adblock Plus, Adblock Filterset.G Updater and Remove It Permanently. Between them, they can remove all trace of advertising
- Adblock Plus: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865
- Adblock Filterset.G Updater: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1136
- RIP: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/521
STEP 3: Set it all up
Actually, once everything's installed all the ads should disappear anyway. The only thing you need to do now is nuke the leftover space. To do so, right click anywhere on the page and highlight RIP Advanced, then select This Domain. Now right click on the empty grey bar where the advert was- this will either be after the fifth post or at the end of the message list. Again highlight RIP Advanced, then This Item Only. Gone!
