Annoying painting academy advertisement

The full page link you have on every page to the ad for painting academy is extremely annoying esp when you are in the middle of a video.

Currently it is intrusive and can be confusing. it is bad design.

Maybe limit the clickable area to where it says "click here to order".

I don't understand - how does it interrupt a video? The clickable area is to the sides.

If i click between windows on my desktop, the background area of a website is where i will click if i want to bring my browser to the front again, this being a link interupts video that is playing or loading.

This has happened to me on many occasions promting me to bring the problem to your attention. I cant be the only one that uses thier computer like that.

Good point - I'll see what we can do about making only the image area clickable.

I know that we just made the background div clickable as we didn't want the image to stay for those with non-widescreen monitors on lower resolutions.
