Brownells Ad

Post by Synchronizor » Sun Jan 26, 2014 7:41 am

I have no problem with having a Brownells ad on the forum (it's actually kind of convenient), but is there any way we could switch to one that isn't animated?

I run a multi-monitor setup, and when I'm only working on one screen, I like to keep things like my email up on secondary screens so I can keep an eye on them. Unfortunately, I can't really tolerate doing the same with this forum because having that blinking ad in my peripheral vision is really irritating and distracting.

I'm not sure how this site is set up, but it seems to me that it would be an easy manner to simply swap ads. I have to say though that I hadn't even noticed it until I read this post and went looking for it. Try scrolling down just enough to hide the header.

The problem with scrolling down is that I use a browser extension to refresh the tab periodically. Each time the tab refreshes, it returns to the top of the page.

run a host file blocker and you will not see any ads.. I never seen any ads here and didn't even know there was any.

There's only one small ad at the top of the page. I have no problem with it being there; it's a handy shortcut to Brownells that I use fairly frequently, and I assume it helps keep this site online. I just don't like things flashing in my peripheral vision because it registers as motion and I instinctively want to focus on it.

Sync, no problem at all. I will ask my admin to do this, but it will take some time because he has a lot of work at the moment.
