Hi, guys!  We started a new thread for ad reports.  This will make it easier for us to easily track them versus comments regarding non-crafty ads in general.

Please report questionable ads in a reply to this thread:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=270606.0

Report questionable and potentially offensive ads and ads that scroll/talk/start playing without user interaction.  In your reply, please do your best to describe the ad and include a link to where the ad leads.

As of 07/08, we do have some non-crafty ads circulating, which you can read about in the first post of this thread.  Please only report the offensive ads to us, though. Smiley

Thanks!

I also had to enable an ad blocker due to the animal abuse ads. They are all over the page and so not the way to get donations.  I love the crafting ads, so this is unfortunate.

I don't know if there's a place to report ads we love, so I'm just gonna say it here: The snickers ads are cracking me up! My favorite is the older gentleman "punching zombies" and posing with his candy bar.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

Ok, I have to ask this lest I know without being enlightened.  I see not all ads are craft related but it doesn't bother me much unless they are really annoying for some reason.  But there is something I don't (want to) quite understand.  Now there are these "ads by google", and I've just notice that now they come with a little pic on the left.  What calls my attention is that, in fact, it's the same one or two pics all the time, while the ad changes every time I click to move to another page in Craftster.  What really, really intrigues me is why should I see a pic of a lady crafting with beads illustrating an ad for pet food.
Here, have a look:


This is what I call misleading advertising.  For lack of a better description.  I just wanted to point it out.

Hi, soorawn!  I apologize if it is at all perceived as misleading advertising.  Google is supposed to serve relevant, craft-related ads in that position.  However, sometimes random ads slip through, and we do our best to monitor and block them when we see them!

We recently redesigned the Google text ads in order to make that space a bit more visually appealing since it was just text with a plain margin in the past.  As you've noticed, we have a pool of four or five crafty images that rotate through with those text ads now.  It simply was just our way of adding some color and appeal to an otherwise bland chunk of space on the site.

We do love color... and glitter. Grin

Aaaaah!  I was wondering about the images!  So they're your addition for making those ads more handsome... (truly, they remind me of the classified ads from the paper).  Good idea!  Thanks for clarifying!  And of course, no need to apologise for the unrelated ads.  They're difficult to keep at bay.

Well, it's our attempt at least!  There's not much we can do to spice up text ads, but we tried. Cheesy

Thanks for the feedback on them!  We really appreciate it.
