Do you mean the rectangular Recaro ad and the one next to it under the Google search bar?

Those replaced smaller advertisements in late 2012: . No major changes in advertising have been made since then, other than minor adjustments.

Did you possibly have a subscription that expired? I can't think of any other reason you wouldn't have seen those before.

Yeah, they are not pretty, but the ads do support the site. Some even if they are never clicked.

From the "Support Car-Seat.Org" thread:

Finally, I ask that you please consider NOT using advertisement-blocking software/settings here, or at the very least put into your whitelist. While many of us don't like ads, the reality is that our sponsors and advertisers track who visits their websites from our forum and that affects if they will continue to advertise and how much they are willing to pay. You will see fewer advertisements over time if you register and become an active member, and almost no ads appear for subscribers. Car-Seat.Org does not use any type of pop-up, pop-under, intra-page or other intrusive ads that force you to interact or close them before you can read the content on a page. So, if you must use an ad blocker here, please consider supporting us in other ways listed below.

The one under the Announcements, Guidelines and Feedback is new, the other ones on top were not that big.

That is one of the oldest ads, since late 2008 when it became necessary to have ads supplement subscriptions to pay for hosting costs. The two above it were changed from a smaller size in November, 2012.

I just checked and you did indeed have a benefactor subscription that expired on July 4th. That would have blocked nearly all ad placements.
