The "Visit Florida" ad is driving me crazy! It completely blocks the links to all the forums under the "community" tab. It took multiple tries and I had to move my mouse very deliberately and strategically just to get to this board to complain about it.

I actually came to say that the "owlbot" banner ad is a broken link. It sends you to a craftster page that doesn't exist rather than owlbot.etsy.com which I'm guessing is where it's supposed to go. I wound up finding the page, but the link should probably be fixed anyway.

...AND THEN!... you all reminded me about the annoyingness that is the Florida ad. The issue isn't that it's not crafty, it's that it is layered over the dropdown menus rather than beneath.

I can still get to my bookmarks by clicking "replies to your posts", but I shouldn't *have* to do that, ya know? Wink

This isn't a google ad...but I've noticed lately that right under the tape measure bar with "Home, Community, etc" on it, there is an ad to visit Florida. This particular ad opens up to 2-3 times its normal size without any prompting. This causes me to often click on the ad and accidentally go to their site. Ever since this particular ad has been showing up, my browser also frequently crashes. Is anyone else having this problem? I actually like many of the ads on the site and have purchased things through sites. It just seems to be this one particular and intrusive ad. Sad

Ok, the owlbot link is fixed. Smiley

The Florida ad, I swear we're working on, it's just a little trickier to deal with than first thought.

Now that my Florida ad isn't taking up space, I had a new one tonight on a BBQ place!  Did the same thing opened up and took up most of the page!  It's only happened once so far, but next time I'll try and get a copy of the dang thing!   

I should have looked for this thread sooner, instead of just B$)#*ing about it at home!

I know we need the supports of advertisers to keep lovely Craftster going, but the drop-downs are interfering with the use of Craftster!  The banners running just below the bar with Home, Community, Articles, ect are the one's giving me trouble.  I was trying to access my bookmarks, but everytime I ran over "My Craftster" the user drop-down dropped underneath the ad banner preventing me from being able to click the bookmarks tab.  Cry  I went to my profile, home, back to profile.... about 5 different pages and that same ad came up.  Maybe there's another way to get to bookmarks other than this?

Like I said, I know we need the ads and I am in no way complaining about them being here.  I just thought maybe it can be fixed so that the Craftster drop-downs run over the top of the ads?

Thanks!!  Grin

Ok, I just got the tennis ad again and I was able to use the drop downs while it was there. If it's still an issue for anyone else, though, let me know! Smiley
