Free Coins when you download mochi toolbar

I'm working on a coins game right now and noticed that something popped up offering me free coins if I downloaded and installed the toolbar. I clicked on it, and was brought to this page

It said the page isn't found

To help with our investigation, could you provide the MochiGames username you were using when you experienced this problem? Were you logged in at the time that you clicked the offer?

i noticed this thing popped up on my games login widget today. seems kinda spammish and i don't want to encourage people to install junk on their browser. is there a way to keep it off our login widget?

Do Mochi absorb the cost of free coins for a download of the Mochi toolbar?

Does seem spammy.

I associate toolbars with malware, and most people I know do as well.

Yes, developers get paid when these coins are spent.

Well hopefully these people won't install it unless they actually want to, there are plenty of other ways to get coins. Of course, our toolbars certainly aren't malware and don't do anything sketchy.

For every person who thinks toolbars are malware there's probably ten people who actually like them because they don't know like to use bookmarks or remember URLs. The Chrome extension version of our toolbar is actually quite nice, it's the only one I can actually tolerate myself. It is simply an icon on the browser toolbar and when you click it a miniature version of the MochiGames dashboard pops up.

Actually, I think for every person who thinks toolbars are malware there are probably ten people who have 15 toolbars installed in their browser, don't know how to get rid of them, and are wondering why their computer is slow and frequently prone to popups.

I haven't looked at the Mochi toolbar and I'm sure it isn't malware... still, toolbars in general are shady.

Ahaha so true maupin, most of those are from like freeware installs where it secretly asks you to install a toolbar when you accept terms and condition (which no one reads and there for they end up with a toolbar they never wanted) but mochi isn't doing that, that I know of. You go to the website and install it and you know you are installing it. You should be able to turn it off in your game though. Or at least get $ everytime someone installs it from your game.
