    I Know I've Probably Seen it a Hundred Times
    ...but just noticed the typo in the Liquidation.com banner here at ABW. "$1 per uinque bid". So, there you have it. Free proofreading, albeit a little late. (actually, not that funny...I just normally use the smilies that are randomly picked for me with a new post.)

    Never noticed since I never look at those banners. I've got bannerblinditis.

    So I had to refresh the page to see what you were talking about.

    You're pretty observant and someone must've been in a hurry or their spell checker wusnt wurkin'.

    The banner I found looks correct ... but maybe there is more than one of them.

    I don't know why, hopefully someone here can explain it.

    When I look at any of my sites, I can't see any typos.

    I look at any other sites, the first thing I see are the typos.


    I've seen this one before, just never mentioned it.


    Although I do suffer from banner blindness as well, I actually watch and reads the ads on ABW.

    Now seriously Haiko,

    After sfcom found that typo in the Liquidation.com banner, I think it would be a good idea to do some of the rotating banners on ABW with some kind of small innocent typo on purpose, that way you can make sure we all read those banners, and then maybe have a small contest every month to see who has spotted the typo.

    As for the contest prize, just an ABW or just a simple ABW or something similar next to the winner name, should do.

    Wow, thanks!

    I guess that I am either lucky or good. My collage educatun comes in handee sumtimes. lol. It truly does pay to pay attention. $$$.

    Thank you Haiko. I am putting it toward my holiday fund for toys at the battered women's shelter again this year, same as you helped me with last year. I know it is early, but it isn't too early to be thinking of them.
