Just found out you are supposed to be able to read the Esroh books needed for Poseidon from this site.

When I clicked on one of the links it took me to a page headed "AdFly" advertising something called "SlotoMania". I don't know if this is a legitimate site or not but, just in case, I would strongly recommend DO NOT CLICK ANYTHING ON AN ADFLY PAGE AS IT MAY CAUSE AN ATTACK ON YOUR COMPUTER.

If this is genuine and approved by Esroh Legends I would suggest that a prominent warning be provided so we don't think we have entered a hacker's site, while the actual ads are totally inappropriate for the Horse Isle age group.

But it looks like you have been hacked.

The question "What is Ad.fly?" is answered here: http://esrohlegends.ucoz.com/index/how_to_support_esroh_legends/0-245
It's also in the little news box on the right bar of every page. Also in our FAQ.

You do not need to click on the actual ad, just click on skip this ad on the top right.

Thank you for your quick response, Vallina. My fault.

However, in my defence, I would say that the only visible reference to AdFly is in fine print in a box on the far right of the screen - when I log on to Legends, my immediate instinct is to look at the site map on the far left.

But it was the advertisement that made me suspicious - it was for "Slotomania" and looked to be for an on-line gambling game. We don't need that. If it had been for cuddly toys or other child friendly products I may not have reacted so quickly. I have suffered in the past from accessing dodgy websites by accident and was genuinely concerned.

The box is labeled as "Notices & Ongoing Events" and we moved it from the top of the main page to the right side of every page so people would notice it more. I'm not sure how you could have missed it. It's on every page (aside from forums).

We also unfortunately can not regulate the type of ads shown, my apologies. That choice is AdFly's.
