These occur every minute or so without warning despite the site running ''perfectly fine'' otherwise. 2018 made it so that this screen also extols the benefits of a paid membership, reinforcing the aforementioned "[[BribingYourWayToVictory buy our memberships]]" vibe.


** The addition of a rather obnoxious anti-adblocking system to said interactives [[BribingYourWayToVictory which is only disabled you have a paid membership]]. If you have a free account (or none at all) and have a known adblocker on (including Adblock Plus and [=NoScript=]), then whenever you load an interactive chapter, the content will be hidden. You will only get to view the content after you see a message pop-up in its place telling you to disable your adblocker and clicking OK, then viewing another message like that for five seconds, then manually clicking another message that pops up that will allow you to finally view the page. If you have a basic paid membership, you will get less ads and the site will let you use your adblocker, while all the more expensive tiers remove the ads entirely. In a way, all this basically amounts to Writing.com saying, "[[BribingYourselfToVictory Buy our memberships]] or GTFO."
