Changes coming 'round

I got a notice today from Google that the HeroMachine apps are in violation of their placement policies. Apparently they require 150 pixels between any Flash content and their ads. As a result, I’m going to have to make some major changes to the HM layouts. I only have three business days to get into compliance, so you’re going to see some weirdness over the next few days. I apologize in advance for any frustration you run into.

  1. Did they say why?

  2. Gene, basically the ads were too close to controls or other navigation. The official policy they pointed to in the generic message was something like the potential for “accidental clicks”.

  3. Ok, thanks. I guess that makes some sense.
