    Arrow Talk about annoying banners...
    Talk about annoying banners...

    Now I know why people say it's not a good idea to have animated banners on our affiliate sites.

    That blinking banner that keep showing on the bottom of the New Posts page, is a good example of what kind of banners not to put on our affiliate sites.

    It's not just the fast rate of the blinking banner that is annoying, but also the blinking text on the Status Bar...


    I will not mention the banner, but I sure not interested on clicking on it anyway, I'm afraid of what kind of blinking light show, I might find on the final destination.

    Not certain about the banner ad, but your OP is about to trigger an epileptic event!

    I see exactly what you mean, Sal.

    In many cases (the one you're referring to is a perfect example) an animated .GIF can be made much more effective by making the frames/pictures change two or three times slower. Otherwise, it is hardly readable/digestible.

    Yes I also noticed the Banner (and hated it) I would never click on such a banner.

    It was an error.

    There are six different banners all static and I pulled the the wrong javascript (the one that puts them all into a slide show with a 1 sec interval). It's fixed now.

    Funny thing is that they had a flash banner and I told them no flash only static banners! So, please don't let my error preclude you from clicking on the banner.
    Continued Success,

    Looks like sometimes it is good to be offline for a few hours and miss things

    Mr. Sal, you should take a lesson from this. Your animated posts have always been annoying to me. They would be appropriate for a 5 year old in personal communications, not a forum for adults who are discussing business matters.

    I've gotta disagree, I think the creativity is inspiring and the levity refreshing ... I appreciate all the effort and time that he puts into his posts.
