How lame can it get?
By , for WP 3.5.1

Apart from seeking donation, it also steals the ad space at the ratio of 1 in 20. Nice trick dude. And nice comments about support too!

AdvertWhirl Graveyard
By , for WP 3.5

As much as it really LOOKS like it has such potential, I'm not getting any support. It's been a few days, and the forum is a graveyard with only the first few posts having replies from anyone else. And no one bothers to change their subject heading from the default, so they all say "Bug Report..."

My issue is one of wrong-sized ads appearing where my 160x600 is supposed to be, and they fly off the side of the page.

I admit I didn't originally read the part about the 1 in 20 ads served are his, and it was a bit of a surprise, but I could live with that if only the wrong-sized ads wouldn't pop up every once in a while, and I don't know where, in the code, I might change this.

Forced advertisement
By , for WP 3.5

However good or bad this plugin is, the last version suppressed the possibility to choose to advertise or not for the plugin.

And it's not a "simple mistake" or "something we forgot" as the option was removed from the admin, and the code modified.

This is not compliant to wordpress.org guidelines. Many other options which where available for free have been removed from the plugin.

As is, it should not appear anymore in the repository

Terrible plugin
By , for WP 3.5

Something simple to use and not something that requires in-line code or iframes to work please.
