I agree - as long as the ads are unobtrusive and don't slow down loading the page, I'm happy with them. I've even clicked on a few!

It seems like the frequency of obnoxious ads has gone WAY down since they first started. Whatever Leah and Sweets are doing with our feedback about obnoxious ads, it's working!

The worst ad was some movie clip that played over and over and delayed my page loads... ugh... I boycotted that film in protest.  That was several months ago and I haven't seen anything like that since.   Smiley

Oh no! We definitely don't want any ads that just start talking on their own! We try to nab those ones right away.

Okay, I've been following the thread for a little bit and though it's been said, I'd like to add my little opinion.

First our mods ROCK and Sweets is indeed the sweetest EVER. Love ya!

Second, I don't really mind the adds, and have even gained a subscription to a great mag because of them and found great products at good prices. They sometimes inspire me to create similar things so you can add inspiration to the mix as well.

I love Craftster for it's community and for the creativity I get from it. I have never been so creative as I have since I ran into this website by accident a few years ago. I'm even a "crackster" pusher. Anytime I talk with other creative friends I push them to go to the website. I'm a FOC and am willing to pay the tiny cost in order to remain so. I'm also okay with the adds for the aforementioned reasons and to keep this place up and running. When it's down I don't know what to do with myself!

So, in conclusion to my wild rambling, thanks for all the hard work and I don't mind the adds because they're mostly craft related and they keep my addiction alive and well! Cheesy

It's totally everyone's right to use ad blockers but just keep in mind that if you to this you're preventing us from making a certain amount of money that we need to run this site. Sad And you're missing out on some great crafty advertisers. Smiley

Forgive my naivety, but how does Craftster not make money when users have an ad blocker? Is it because they can't see them and can't click them, as the clicking is what makes money? I'll turn off my ad blocker for Craftster and go on an ad-clicking spree when I visit if it'll help Smiley I got ad blocker for other websites that had horrible, flashing, drop-down, pop-up, noise-making ads; the ones on Craftster never bothered me in the past.

Many ad networks pay the website based on how many times the ad is shown and it doesn't matter how many times it was clicked.

Some ads pay out based on how many clicks they get. But while we appreciate your offer to click lots of ads, we don't suggest that. We could actually get in trouble if "click fraud" is detected. But it's a nice thought! Cheesy

Hope this helps. Smiley
