Thanks for checking, and I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one seeing this open & close
phenomenon!  I plan to NEVER shop @ Home Depot   Wink
(thanks for your post, cabaute; it confirms what I'm seeing on my laptop)

hello,
is anyone else getting the iDateAsia ad on the right sidebar?
umm.....last I checked, this wasn't a singles looking for love site?

(I hit PrntScrn and pasted into a doc, but can't upload that to show you,
so not sure how to provide evidence? )

maybe this is normal for people in other parts of the world, but I am getting 'vote for me' type ads on craftster. We have a general election coming up next week..but ugly politicians are not a good look for craftster!

But I get that advertising is necessary... Undecided

ads that scroll/talk/start playing without user interaction.  
--sweets4ever






when you say scroll, what does that mean.

this morning (and maybe it's just that I haven't noticed it before) there have been a few ads that are animated, that move, that have a brief few seconds of 'life' before they settle down. All google ads btw

they are Dublin airport car parks (13 seconds of moving images and text)
Aerlingus, (ditto)
Changi Airport (only a couple of seconds of movement)
Virgin airlines (both right sidebar and top banner,)


(guess I will have to stop looking at flights and stuff.

They might be leaking in from where you've clicked on other sites.  I don't think we have any in our ad service.  Could you clear your cookies & cache and see if you still have them happening?

I thought that I had screwed up uploading, but the ads are dynamic, they move and change. I can click the little x to get rid of them, but while I was editing my response in a thread (vikings and ninjas swap gallery thread) the ad appeared at the bottom of someone else's picture.  (I took photos on my mobile, uploaded them to the desktop on my PC and to craftster via the quick insert photo option. )

Is this a new thing, because it is horrible?

I have 'advertising turned off' but I can cope with flashing ads in the sidebars, but in the middle of a thread, is too much.

is it just me? am I cookie infested.

This happened to me today on my phone, I thought I had infected it with something somehow so I signed out of C-ster on there. I use too much data checking up anyhow. I'll stick with the computer from now on, I don't see any funky ads on here now (firefox on ubuntu os).

I'm getting this, too, and it's making pages slow/impossible to load on my phone, especially threads with lots of pictures. I even get it on the big Craftster picture in the upper left of the page! It's making browsing near impossible. Sad

It prompted me to download adguard for my phone and it's working brilliantly on the apps that I use (myfitnessPal, bacon reader for Reddit) it's not in the app store and it's for android 4.2 or better. If you Google it on your phone you will find it.
