There is no need to fight in proving a point about whether or not banners are irritating. Banners ARE irritating. Sliding versus static isn't really negotiable at this point, because what I've found statistically is that the sliding banner get's a lot more clicks, it's more effective than a static banner. So if we have to serve banners, we want to do it the most effective way.Anatoliy why not add a poll to this thread on sliding vs static banner and see if it is only 3 ppl indeed that find sliding banner irritating?
You have a very good point, Anatoliy! I went back and counted, and several people said they just didn't want them to move, four people expressed outright distaste, and three people said they didn't mind, me included. Part of my feeling in the minority might have stemmed from the vehemence of those who really dislike it. Logically, though, more people who dislike the floating banner would click on the thread... there are probably loads of people like me who aren't even bothered enough to read the thread out of curiosity. :think:How come that when 3 members out of 1,855 posted that they hate new banners, you feel like you are in a weird minority if you don't hate them? Is 3 a major part of 1,855?
To find out if there is a problem and if that's the case to find out a way to solve it. And as you can see we found it out.And BTW if all is decided, then what is this thread for?
Anyone annoyed with the ads please change over to firefox, problem solved.
I agree completely! Those scrolling ads are really distracting.Is the floating banner that thing moves with your scrolling up and down?
If so I find it really really annoying and PLEEEEEAAAASE is there a way to set a preference somewhere to stop it because it is bugging the h*ll out of me. I love this forum and it's spoiling it bigtime for me
Hate it hate it hate it, it's driving me nuts, a complete dealbreaker IMO
Dont they need you to buy from them to make the banner successful? In that case clicking wont help too much....What about my idea to click one or 2 static banners every time we visit the forum so the floating thing won't be necessary anymore?
Just stop giving that horrible floating thing attention! Then Anatoliy will probably remove it!
