Hey guys,

You may or may not have noticed but the shop widget has been taken down.  There's still an ad in that space (as there has been since the redesign in 2007) but the widget got nixed for now.  There were a number of reasons, but your feedback was definitely included in the decision.

Also I wanted to let you know that I, personally, have seen a few icky roll-over ads today and I'm reporting them to our team as I see them. Expanding ads are gross! Report them here if you see them!

I noticed.   Grin  I had been waiting for the glitch to get worked out...sometimes it bled to the next...sometimes it didn't.  It wasn't bothering me much anymore... Then I see....it's gone.

I'm not against averts at all but I'm happy that it's not bleeding into the other posts.

Thank you ladies and all the powers that be that were trying to get that worked out.  Smiley

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

I clicked on an ad for a polymer clay website that I had never seen before here on Friday.  It looked like a help site more than a sales site. (tutorials, videos, galleries, etc) Immediately upon clicking it, it said I didn't have Java 'X' (can't remember what, I didn't care, and wasn't about to get it just for one dinky website.... Considering I know I have the latest Java that anyone needs.) I tried to leave to go somewhere else, and my computer started serious dramatics.  Detected a million different intrusions, countless pages started to open.  I restarted my computer 3 different times and eventually ended up taking it to the shop by afternoon.  I just picked it up yesterday and everything had to be wiped.  He said it was bad, and very recent.  I haven't seen this ad since I've been back (and as I said, I have never seen it before at all, and I'm pretty active here...), but I will think twice about clicking any ad again. 

I do hope I don't have anyone jump on me for not 'being a supporter'.  It did happen here, I promise.  I know it would be helpful if I could remember even the name of the site, but basically as soon as I was in, it was all over for my computer.  All I can say I've visited  polymer clay express, and polymer clay central on other occasions, even before I ever found craftster, and I think they may advertise here too.  It was not either of their sites.  This was a site that had videos as soon as you entered the main page.

Do you remember where the ad was on the page or what size it was?

I don't think anyone would jump on you for not being a supporter.  Any website or link on the internet can be compromised by a virus.  We'd definitely like to figure out which website/ad/link it was, though!
