    Thought I would post THIS here just so I know everyone will see it.

    The banners we have on the site aren't making a dime anymore, not even enough to cover the server costs, which is all I want. Internet advertising has gone in the dumps, and I don't see any point in keeping the banners up to make pennies. (No clicking them isn't an issue).

    So what I might try is these pop-behind banners. It opens up only ONE small window behind your browser when you come into the forum, and you can just close it. It might be a bit annoying, but certainly won't lag the forum like the banners and take up forum space. It will only be when you access the Main Forum Page, and I believe that it remembers your IP address for 12 hours so it doesn't keep opening up everytime you visit the Main Page.

    If it becomes completely annoying, I will get rid of it (I do not want to bother anyone too much with them), but the CPM pay is much better, no one needs to click anything, and I can actually recoup the server costs. The last thing I want is to inconvenience the boards, but I don't think this should be that terrible, the pop-behind window doesn't spawn any extra windows or anything, so don't worry about that.

    Not sure when I'm gonna do this, but soon. So unless there are any fervent objections I will go ahead and try this. Think it will be less annoying than the banners actually.

    go for it. Whatever alleviates the cost. I think I can handle closing a window twice a day

    Whatever pays the nut, man

    Im really impressed that Brett would actually ask us before implementing anything!!!
    Hey, Brett, if youre near the VH mgmt ofc, maybe you should drop em a resume...never know when they might be needing a webmaster.

    This shows real class asking us before implementing.

    That would be much better than banners. If it pops up behind the browser window, and you still get paid, I'd say it's worth it.

    If it's a pop BEHIND it won't bother me. I can handle extra windows in the background. It's when they feel the need to cover the work I'm looking at that I flip out.

    A site this cool...man, it shouldn't cost anything. It shouldn't need banners, windows, etc.

    Make the PD pay for it!
