Sorry I didn't realize there was responses to this earlier.  It was on the right side of the screen.  It was a larger picture ad.  The background was a picture of items that there were tutorials for (they were quite intricate polymer clay pieces, exactly what they were I cant remember) and the main thing I remember it saying was video tutorials.  I clicked on it to check it out, and I could see the actual website, but a popup prevented me from doing anything else.  It said I needed Java 6.  I hadn't clicked on a video, that was immediately upon entering the site.  The popup seemed kind of funny to me, and I thought I had the latest Java, so I decided I didn't need to see anything in there all that bad (especially since I'm not used to a website demanding I download something right when I enter.  Maybe if I had clicked on a video it wouldn't have seemed so suspicious.)  I clicked x to close the window and I had tons of popups everywhere.  Too many to even close.  I restarted my computer and the popups just continued and I just closed everything down and took it into the shop.  I hope that can be of some help.  I haven't seen this ad since my computer has been back, and I had never seen it before.

So happy to see that this thread has been idle for awhile!! Smiley  Just wanted to reply with some very exciting news re: ads.

We have now implemented the ability for Fanatic Friends of Craftsters to disable ads on the site entirely.  While, of course, we still appreciate all of the support we get via our ad programs, we listened to your requests for this new feature!  Please read and discuss the new feature here Smiley http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=401667.0

Is anyone else getting the Tide roll-over ads? They are kind of driving me bonkers. You roll over and a video automatically starts playing. I think there is also one on the right navigation.

yeah, I've just avoided doing anything near that part of the page after the ad popping up one time too many.
On the plus side, that ad has inspired me to buy ANY laundry soap BUT Tide. Well done, advertisement LOL

Not inappropriate but somehow horrible, those ads where they take a perfectly lovely looking face and Barbie-Plasticize it. This is supposed to be a desirable feature for whatever photo editing program is being flogged but it just gives me the heebie geebies! What's wrong with looking human, eh? WEIRD!

Yes, the Tide ad is pretty obnoxious.  It pops up right where you go to "my craftster" then "bookmarks", so every time you head toward your bookmarked topics it starts yelling at you.

The Tide ad *did* remind me that I need to make a new batch of laundry detergent, so I guess it's *sorta* crafty. Cheesy

Way to look on the bright side Cheesy  The report IS in so it's just a matter of the switches being flipped. Smiley
