Where I've work has decided to run a "selfie" competition on Facebook, so we've naturally advertised it on our site. So far so OK.
Last night I noticed something odd: The advert points at one of the online games we have (completely unrelated to the selfie comp, other than both being run by us), rather than the facebook page. Shurely shome mishtake? The work was done in a rush as we're short staffed, the dev who did this originally was going off on his hollibobs, and we had server problems, so I assumed an oversight had happened. No on in our in-country office is available (they're one hour ahead and had gone home) so I raise a work-ticket and ready the fix for approval in the morning.
Pretty insane to have an advert for an off-site competition and not link to the competition. I've just had a phone call from marketing. They're not happy as they don't like the idea of taking the player "off the site" with a link OMG | :OMG: WTF | :WTF: . Despite the fact linked game (or a link of any kind) isn't mentioned in the ticket anywhere, they actually wanted this. I've managed to convince them that a non-clickable advert is better than one that takes you to some random game.
