I had something similair on eveboard but advertising bots,
Iirc there was a topic about it last year and turned out it was almost impossible to prevent ads like that i just ignore them

I do not agree with what you are saying , but i will defend to the death your right to say it...... Voltaire

Couldn't agree more. I can't see it as a game. Every time I try, I see a real money AH with a game attached. If I ever saw Eve like that, I'd be out in a heartbeat.

Farmville on the side panel is just there to try and distract us from the Bieber post at the top ... burn it to the ground (in Syndicate or something)

Was just sitting on facebook in zombie mode when i noticed an add in the sidebar, for a website selling eve ships, minerals and ISK for real money.

Not sure how the rules and laws work on this subject, but isn't there something against this?

I intentionally drew over the site link, since i'd be advertising for them otherwise...

I usualy report them to facebook under the option about it violating CCPs IP, which it does, all assets and items in game belong to CCP and are their IP.

Farmville was from when i first made my FB ;p and as for uTorrent, it can be used legal downloads you know, but since you assume otherwise i'll assume that you're pirating ;p.

As for the beaver, please follow this link to minimize exposure of him: https://www.facebook.com/browse/friended_fans_of/?page_id=67253243887

You just need to type "eve plex" in google to find a host of sites selling stuff in EVE.

This may be the wave of the future for MMOs.

I have been playing Diablo III. In chat, someone was bragging that he sold an in-game item for $US20. There is the standard in-game Auction House for in-game gold, of course. There is also a Blizzard sanctioned real money auction house called, oddly enough, the Real Money Auction House.

So, if you can't stop the Gold Farmers and RMTers, you may as well cash in ! Direct, unabridged, Pay to Win. I'm not sure how it works, but I understand that Blizzard takes a cut (although I may be wrong about that).

So, as bizarre and volitile a concept this is for EvE, this seems to be where gaming is headed. I'm such a cheap besterd that I will never use any such service myself. But apparently, the RMAH is a big hit that allows players to spend real bucks on their hobby. I'd rather spend my disposable income on a good barley wine or Belgian Trippel.

thats what you get when you buy out a corp like activation or EA and then merge it with your perfectly fine gaming company.
Verandi (Blizzards parent company) from a gamers point of view have a LOT to answer for when they bought out activison who only give 2 s**ts about $ and nothing else with blizzard (where do you think +5 level expansions, RealID on forums ideas came from?) (and you can bet your ass thats where the real money auction house idea came from) activison USED to be good, till they got to the point where all they care about is $ as for EA look at what the hell they've done to some of the best games companys and games they've absorbed (westwood studios, bullfrog etc)

Firstly, lol facebook. Whats wrong with you people? Anyone using it is ********, not just people with farmville.

Second, why are you accepting third party cookes, all they do is track you and target ads such as that eve rmt one.

Thirdly... well I need some related content so "RMT is bad, m'kay?"

No sir this is called google adsense. Meaning that any sites you have been looking on, google flashes up links and adverts to similar sites!

You have been caught out! Big smile

All my views are my own - never be afraid to post with your main, unless you're going to post some dumb shit

I don't know what is worse. The fact that you put it up there or the fact that I watched the whole damn thing.
