Awesome, thanks Smiley. I'm not sure what a source link is, would that be me clicking on the ad then copying the address to post it here? I am not very techy, sorry Tongue.

Yes, exactly that!  I realize some don't want to actually click the icky ads, and that's okay.  It just might take us a bit longer to track those doozies down. Cheesy

Ah!  This thread is just what I was looking for!

For months now, once in a while, I get a complete redirect to pcupgradenow (via redir.aitrkng.com) saying Chrome or whatever is out of date... download this update!  And then attempting to close/leave the page pops up a text box asking Are you SURE???. This has only ever happened to me on Craftster and I am absolutely certain that I am not infected by this particular malware.  I don't want to post the full urls here, but I can PM them to someone if it helps.

This isn't exactly an add of questionable moral content, but definitely of questionable sanity! The cottonelle pop up is DRIVING ME UP THE WALL. I am seriously clawing my eyes out in frustration. Every thread I open! And it isn't like a regular pop up that pops up in a new tab or in a new window so it doesn't even bother you, its right in your face and you can't do anything until you close it. I don't mind adds generally, I understand their function and I want Craftster to be able to continue operating but the Cottonelle pop-up makes me want to close Craftster and never return.

I'm sorry if I sound dramatic, its a direct correlation to my level of frustration.

Not sure if anyone else is having this problem, but, when using my iPad, whenever the ads on the site are for any type of games, it keeps bumping me off of craftster and automatically opens my App Store app to buy the game.

Also, I just got a pop up that said I won a prize and click here to claim. There was no way out of the box (no 'x' in the corner) except to click ok, which bumped my craftster page to the prize page. Then obv exited out of it then.

not really questionable, but certainly ANNOYING --
the Home Depot ad that automatically expands and then contracts, making
my screen jump all over & I have to wait for it all to settle down before clicking
on any posts, lest I accidentally click on the ad!!!!!!

aiyiyiyi.....is it just me?
I'm using Firefox

For this STUPID HOME DEPOT BANNER that keeps auto-opening and auto-closing and jumping my whole screen up and down.  Either STAY OPEN or STAY CLOSED, but don't start out open and then close, causing the entire screen to shift / jump, and causing whatever I click on to actually select something several lines away.  The ads are also making the mobile experience HORRID (which is the only way I can check in during work).  I thought that by paying to be a Friend of Craftster we weren't to be subjected to such nonsense?  (And, yes, I am logged in!).
