Half of Destructoid's readers block our ads. Now what?

[Webmaster Dojo is a column where I share my experiences running Destructoid, one of the last sites not owned by a media conglomerate or venture capital velociraptor. I'll sling exotic coffee bean water to keep servers on.]

Relax. We're still friends.

Last month, I learned that the primary way we support Destructoid was quickly shrinking due to a browser plug-in: the ad-blocker. On the bright side, it brought some closure on why our ad checks never quite kept up with perky site traffic or growing bandwidth bills.

No, I'm not going to chainsaw your face for installing an ad-blocker. Chances are, though, you understand that blocking ads denies us some coffers and you probably feel a little bad about it, but all ads intrinsically annoy you. That's okay. Still, it is enough for me to say that it's a problem facing my site and other sites like it, and a few weeks ago, I started to appeal to readers to whitelist us -- that mostly failed.

Is asking for nickels the best way to future-proof a gaming site?

The Official Destructoid Review Guide

It's been quite a while since we've updated our reviews guide from 2011, and now is as good a time as ever to set the record straight once again, and keep our readers informed of the review process. Please read this (or at least skim it over) before you send us hate mail over a high or low review. To facilitate that process, I'll keep things brief and focus mainly on the major points.
