I don't usually post when I do small updates but I think this one is worth mentioning. I've now changed the click to view ad button on the game pages. I posted a ad supported game to reddit and instantly got backlash for it. The backlash came from what the button said, instantly gamers were put off from the wording on the button. Although I then quickly deleted the post on reddit, I started thinking about it some more. Then I realized why the button was worded like it was and why they were right to be wary of clicking it.
Originally when the site was using adf.ly ads (before I started my-ga.me) the ads were terrible and not even gaming related. Though it allowed me to try and do what I had set out to do, help game developers earn more from their web games, so I decided that I would try and justify it. Long story short when I started my-ga.me I had become used to the button and no longer had why I created the button as I did in my mind.
So now the button is a simple play button like below:
Overall I tried to make the whole ad process more understandable to the player. I feel it has already made a big difference.
I also have found a few bugs and fixed them. One bug broke logging out on certain pages, the other stopped you from saving edits to your game once creating a new scoreboard. These are now fixed.
Also let me know what you think of the new changes!
