Is anyone else having problems not being able to play when Ad Blocker is enabled?

Yes. I also just tried to answer poohsie who is leaving the site after 6 years. It won't let me comment!! This is what I TRIED to say to Poohsie: I'm finishing out the week and am leaving (2nd time) again, too. I cannot handle dealing with ads before and after EVERY game, plus ads at all times above/beside the games. The games stopped working a few days ago, so I uninstalled adblocker. What a shock this site is now! I'll play games elsewhere. I left before because Typewriter was my favorite game, I was excellent at it - they changed it! Also, since a few days ago, I cannot view my page -- I get an error reading AND the treasure chest will not load, either.

Me too, no games available when Adblocker is enabled. Not prepared to watch ads for longer than it takes to pay a game and also to put up with disruptive ads playing during game time and causing interruptions of the game. Think I'll get a deck of playing cards out and be in control of my own life.

Wonder if they've disabled comments on the game pages too. I basically just wanted to say goodbye to the wonderful game mates I've enjoyed over the years. GDG has destroyed this site - not just with the overload of ads but, game play is slowed waaaaaaaaaaaaaay down, which is a real issue when playing against the clock.

Now playing MJ Dimensions Classic here:
https://www.mahjonggames.com/game/Mahjong+Dimensions
You still must disable Ad Blocker, however, their ads are short, and very few. I'm sure there are lots more sites out there that have come to a good balance between revenue-producing ads and player's enjoyment of the games.

bumper7, I can't comment on the game page unless I use my guest account.
Using it I can also get to 'my page' and see/respond to my mail.
Some players say if you'll use Firefox you can do those things too.
BTW, thanks for the 'new' game site. I tried it and like it.

Connie Lea, I couldn't even access my own page yesterday. Just checked today and it seems to be working. Re. the MD game site I posted, I play with FF and rarely get ads there. Once in a while there'll be ONE at the beginning, but none before subsequent games.
Trubrit, if you're only getting 1 ad before game play there, that's lots better than being pounded with long ads here, before, after, and during games here! I won't play here any more but will check in from time to time to see if GDG has revised it's aggressive, intolerable (for me anyway) ad policy. It was once a wonderful site and I enjoyed chatting with others... it was a friendly, fun community.
I'll miss what it was, but not what it is now. Sad.

Sadly, bumper7, GDG won't be updating or revising anything.
Arkadium (the game designers for GDG site) has moved on to mobile games.
I guess it's like everything else, go where the money is.
It's sad for this site because it was once one of the best game sites of all.

Haven't been able to access my GDG mail because I get an error message consistently now when I try to pull up my page. I no longer play here, but did want to see my messages. Also, can no longer submit comments on game page - I'm surprised the forums still work.

Well folks, it is what it is. Thanks, Connie Lea, for letting me know there will be no attempts to fix anything so I no longer waste my time hoping.

Some players say if you use Firefox or Chrome you can access the 'my page'.
I can access it if I use my guest account with IE.
Maybe that will help some of you access your messages.
Good luck.

I found I can access my page by going to one of the games I've played and clicking on my name there or on the prizes page in the leaderboard section.

but I still can't see the 'HOME' column to read my mail.
