Really? I haven't noticed yet... I have to say, though, I'm a few annoyances away from starting up my own FC message board somewhere else.

I've had one. I clicked a design link, and when I navigated back to the page I was at, a pop-up popped up. Not a new window, something covering up the forum. So I clicked X. But, I hope this doesn't continue.

No, the popup followed my scrolling on the FC forum.
EDIT: Another one.

Can you describe the ad and what it's advertising? If it's actually in their system somewhere, I can alert the ad company to have it removed.

I remember that the last ad was for animated cursors, I don't remember any of the others.
The ad itself is a box that blocks most of the page, and follows my scrolling. It doesn't open a new browser window, just a white box with a grey X in the corner.
