Do a google search that will explain lowest bid auctions. I've heard it's possible to get a good deal, but it's extremely rare that you'll actually win. It costs you money whether you win or lose though, so definitely do your research.

OMG get rid of it!  OMG PLEASE GET RID OF IT!!!   Angry Angry Angry

I'm being bombarded with this type of ad all of a sudden: WARNING!  NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART OR ANIMAL LOVERS!!!

I love animals too, and I hate even thinking that they can be so poorly mistreated, but I don't need to see it.  no one wants to see it, and it's not right to overwhelm people with pictures of animal torture and abuse just to get money to help stop it.  Cry Cry Cry

We've reported the ad (it's from our ad network, so it's not something we personally hand-selected).  I am east coast, but the majority of our team is west coast, so it may still be a few hours before it can be removed.

I didn't click but I have them in every single page, so I know what you are talking about.  I'm with you.  Those poor animals, but using the imagery to get us to donate is not cool.  Anyway I'm happy you guys are working on it Sweets! thanks for the quickness of the response!

I've been getting them all morning too.  Normally I just ignore an ad I don't like, because I know you guys aren't picking this stuff, but whoa....  I just can't take this one today.  I don't need to see wounded and abused animals here on craftster.  I came to the thread to post pictures of what's been coming up for me, but since you guys already know about it, I won't make more people suffer through the images. 
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WORKING ON THIS SWEETS4EVER!  And please know that all your hard work, on every little problem, is appreciated by all of us.

*shudders*

yeah.  way to guilt us into donating, WSPA.  I've seen the same ads on other sites and I usually just leave the site.

thanks for taking care of this for us.  Smiley

Just FYI all, we were told it will take up to 24 hours for the ads to clear out. So the work is done but the network just needs to catch up. Smiley

I guess I don't mind the ads really.  I like the craft ones to the right of the screen, I've even gone to a few sites.  I don't particularly want to see non-craft ones, but as long as there ARE craft ones, it's ok I guess.  I have a pop-up blocker, which takes care of the annoying ones, but I hope that you never get those ads where if your cursor happens to go over the ad, it explodes into a larger picture/video and you can't see what you've been trying to read.  those are sooooo annoying.
