    Check out http://www.terra-arcanum.com

    Towards the bottom... is that for real? Or did we get hacked. Or has it been up the entire time and I only just now noticed it?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm actually all for regulated, taxed online gambling. Just not shady ass online gambling.

    Wait. What? I have never noticed that. Did the mods really placed it there?

    I never noticed that either but then I have the forum page bookmarked so I never usually see it

    Given that neither link contains any kind of affiliate tracking ID, there would be no way for TA to get revenue from people clicking on them, so I suspect it's a hack. How exciting!

    It's the most interesting thing to happen around here since you rejoined the forums! <3

    First comes the gambling, then comes the porn. Seems like a fitting progression for this place.

    Ugh. Some of those ads are way too big and has the tenancy to lap over the "Members Online Now".

    I don't know, how can you be sure "Members Online Now" isn't another ad from one of these dubious websites?

    Has anyone ever cared who was online? The point of a forum is you post and get a reply at some stage. This isn't Facebook messenger.

    I always care about seeing massive throbbing members online, it's one of the benefits of not using Facebook to talk to people.











    PS Yeah, this has all been about dick jokes for me.

    Yes but not as much as your significant other/close family member or pet - whichever you find most upsetting.

    The ads are legit and help keep TA online, actually. As well as pay for the domain, XenForo licence renewal costs etc. Once we get the front page back online (pray to @DarkUnderlord ), they'll be a bit less obvious since there'll be actual content around them.

    I wasn't sure about online gambling before, but now that I know TA endorses it, I'm all-in!

    Fair enough Taluntain. Didn't mean to shit on anyone's front lawn. Those bills don't pay themselves.

    I find using brown corduroy pants really helps hide those beginner mistakes.
