Jumpgate ads were okayed for the site because the game has been recommended to me by readers for almost two years. If we’d been home more at the end of last month, we would have just made them an ad ourselves - one that didn’t talk about Joysticks, for example, or what you might do with them. Believe me, you should have seen the one they sent us first - it had a science fiction looking temptress on them. All in all, things could have been worse.
In any case, the funds for the Jumpgate campaigns you see out there on the Internet are actually provided by the players themselves, who like the game so much that they want to pay out of pocket to get your attention. That has an irresistable, underdog charm about it. I just wanted to make sure the ads didn’t turn you off by themselves, which they are - if my Inbox is any indicator.
