    Ads with movement really annoying

    Those Modlily ads with continuously changing pictures are really annoying and distracting. Is there any way to get rid of them or stop them from flashing?

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    While trying to read Tartans post about orange peel quilting today, I kept getting repeated “congratulations Comcast winner” ads that take over the page no matter what I do and every time I closed the window, and tried to read it again, it just kept happening. I gave up trying to read it for an hour, and when I tried again, it still happens. Just FYI.
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.

    This happens constantly to me also. I also close it out but only to have it come up again. Very annoying.

    In my dream world, fabric is free and sewing makes you thin.

    It depends on the browser and device with those ads. Try changing the browser or device (PC vs tablet types). I don't get them on the PC or laptop but have on the tablets. Check the privacy settings and clear the browser history to see it helps.
