Fudging Pop-Up Ads

Umm, adblockers people. It takes like two minutes to download.

And Zina, what you think is interesting isn't interesting for other people. If I saw an advert for a printer I'd think "What the hell? Why do I need that?" Maybe some people want to buy hair products and makeup. Sorry, but the site isn't tailor made for you.

And like Cat said, I don't know if you know anything about websites but you don't get to choose which adverts you get. Without those adverts the site couldn't run. It's just Cat and Tom doing it, and they both have full time jobs and only run this site out of the kindness of their hearts. I think we all need to take a second and actually thank them for that instead of complain about every little thing that goes wrong.

Remember guys, it's only the internet ;)

I really don't think Zina was trying to say that the site should be made just as she would like it, yet more so that it would make more sense for the ads to be about crafts and such! Which I would have to agree and it is a shame that it isn't up to Cat and Tom to pick the ads.

Please don't take what I said as a complaint overall this site is awesome and I think Cat and Tom do an amazing job!
It was meant to be helpful feedback! I didn't realize they couldn't choose their advertising.

The roll over has gone now thank you so much for fixing it Happy

I was just pointing out that crafts are different things to different people, so some people do focus on hair and makeup as crafts.

But anyway, they're obviously sorting it out, I just know I'd hate if I worked my arse off and came on to people complaining about everything.

Well to a point I can see the relevence of hair and make-up products, a lot of the projetcs and how-to's on here are based on hair and make-up. Just a thought.

Let's not turn this into a heated debate, we appreciate that the advertising generates income for the website, without it we wouldn't have CO+K. We also appreciate that Cat and Tom have other aspects of their lives to deal with alongside the running of this website and they do a good job of running and maintaining CO+K.

It's just a point of the majority of people dislike ad's attacking them, it can put people off and it annoyed me at first, which is why I started the thread. I think it would be a lot more effective for both CO+K but mainly for the advertising company to have maybe a fair sized but static ad.
