Yes, it is annoying.

As someone who is usually totally annoyed with ads on webpages, I think this is one of the more well-integrated and non annoying ads I’ve seen in a while. It’s not flashing at me from the side or popping up random boxes, it doesn’t blend in SO well that I accidentally click on it, but it isn’t glaringly obvious, either.

So, no, I don’t think it’s all that annoying – as far as internet ads go, anyway. Not to mention it keeps WB FREE for us users. It’s a minor thing, probably not worth bitching about.

I find it annoying and don’t like having to scroll past it as I go through the threads.  Put it at the top, the bottom or on one of the side but having it right in the middle of the page bugs me.

And I’ll be honest, I’d rather pay a small one time fee to use WB than have ads shoved in my face each time I visit.

I don’t see the ad you’re talking about…..? it’s in the thread? I only see ads on the side bar.

to be honest, I actually would not pay a fee for this site (there are so many free wedding sources out there). if they made this a paid site, I’d really miss the bee, but I’d move on.

It’s bad becasue its the one ad ad blocker doesn’t remove.

I think you just answered the question of why it’s there.

I hate it too…there are way too many ads on here! Honestly, putting an ad smack dab in the middle of the page is just…tasteless.

I do find it (minorly) annoying. Like another PP said, I had thought at first that the upper half were the only posts! Then I realized that it was inbetween the posts. I randomly forgot to go past it though.

I don’t block ads and I don’t find them annoying but I do find this annoying- if they want to sticky it at the top or something that’s fine but in the middle of the threads? I don’t like it.

I find it annoying because I keep thinking that it’s the end of the posts. 🙁

@Mrs Hedgehog: Hey there Hedgehog… I don’t run the site these days so it’s not up to me.  I just help out with board moderation and administration as a volunteer…

I don’t think it could actually be helping to keep the site free because it’s just linking us to another page on the site, it’s not advertising a product. I think the DIY pick of the week is actually a really cool feature…I just wish it wasn’t stuck in the midde of the page! 🙂

I hate it.  I wish they’d move it to the top or the bottom of the threads.

@MissHoneyBun: This is how I felt too, someone made a comment about it last night and answered it for me
