I s'pose that then explains the ad I just got, about "Get you American Green Card"

Can I report ads if they're misspelt, or have bad grammar?   Tongue

i dont know how to take or post screenshots (and i really dont *want* to, but ill learn)

so far they have just been the typical uber irritating *click here, get this* and such...i dunno, i liked it better when craftster was insulated, its the only website i have ever ACTUALLY clicked an add on, not only because i trust that this site was picky, but because they were ads for things i actually want...

i understand the need, but i hate that this is how it has to be

what exactly does a multi-server do? does it just make things faster? are there going to be new features?

Here's a tutorial for how to take a screenshot:  http://www.wikihow.com/Take-a-Screenshot-in-Microsoft-Windows

It suggests saving it as a .png, but a .jpg or .gif uploaded to Craftster Picture Hosting, Photobucket, Flickr, etc. will do just fine for us! Smiley

the one with the dancing person was for classesUSA (or something along those lines). 

i feel like my other post was too complainy   Undecided.  i'm all for different ads if it means that craftster's gonna be even better (which, i dunno, is that possible since craftster's so awesome now?   Tongue).  honestly i don't even usually notice the ads unless it's for something that interests me, or there's movement (for some reason i seem to be easily distracted by movement).

Press the PrtScr key (print screen) at the top of your keyboard (it's at the top of mine, might be different on yours), open your photo editing software, any simple one will do, then either hit Ctrl-V or go up to Edit at the top of the page and click on Paste. Save it in any form you please, but my choice is usually jpeg.

Easy-cheesy. Wink

As for the ads, I think it's great Craftsters is being improved upon and if that's what it takes then we'll learn to live with it. I tend to tune out the ads anyway, but if there's a lot of movement involved I'll close the window cause it tends to make me nauseous.

I wish you all the best with helping Craftsters grow!

i don't mind the one with the cute lil puppy, but i did get one just now with one of those weird SIM like people dancing...those always kind of annoy me.   Undecided

Howdy, all,

Pardon my corporate intrusion. I promised Leah I'd help monitor the advertising situation to make sure nothing too objectionable gets on to the site, so I'll be brief.

If you do see ads with dancing people or singing squirrels, please post a screenshot and/or let us know which advertiser it appears to be. We have an army of minions -- OK, it's really only a couple of folks -- standing by to hunt them down and suppress them.

Thanks!


LowerMyBills.com is the one I just saw and gasped in horror! They have those cheesy ads with the dancing silhouettes and the "choose your state" prompts.

While I understand that Craftster needs money, is it always going to be this way? It really saddened me to see that tacky ad this morning Embarrassed One of my favorite things about Craftster is seeing small crafty businesses getting an opportunity to fairly and beautifully advertise online. The Google text-only ads don't bother me at all, because they are usually really relevant to crafting. But mortgage ads, really?? Undecided
