    Just thought I'd let you guys know. I hate the new moving banners in the upper right corner of the screen on this site. :nono:

    Hate, dislike, etc. Please get rid of them.

    Holy crap, I haven't seen them until today!

    I agree wholeheartedly...they suck. :bash:

    That's so irritating...when I'm scrolling down through a long page ot posts, I put the one I'm reading at the top, and scroll each line to the top of the screen as I read the prior one. Well, I [i]did[/i]...not any more, apparently.

    Yes, very annoying. Especially the black Evolution banner. It sticks out way too much.

    agreed... although i fully support the companies and people behind them, the banners are annoying.

    Oh, here it is!

    I agree with Dave...fully support the companies and the folks in charge, but...

    Doing this will [b]not[/b] make me more likely to click-through. It might very well have the opposite effect and reduce viewership (I for one might well be visiting less often).

    Something to consider... :(

    Thanks, they do indeed suck mightily. Well, except that Chasecam one. That one is good. But the rest...

    Keep looking for ideas, keep trying new things.

    Just promise us that you won't try something like that again! ;)

    I assume more $$$ is the issue. I personally know of one local forum which will grant full access for a $2 fee. Unpaid members are able to post and view, but editing and deleting posts (among other things) are only available to "paying members". If you want to look, check out [url="http://www.slcstreetracing.com"]this site[/URL].

    We will keep trying different Ideas, that benefits our Members as well as our Site Sponsors! :thumbsup:

    Thanks again for the feedback... (we sure know you won't hold back!) :worship:

    How about a compromise ----let the moving banner stay for like 10 seconds, and then move a smaller version to a unused, read, blank part of the screen

    How about a page listing all sponsors?

    I'd bet that many of us would remember to look at such a page before making a purchase. Just put it in a prominent spot (but don't make it move), and we'll have no choice. Perhaps it becomes the main (index? welcome?) page...

    A page listing is in the works, hopefully for this weekend. along with a forum upgrade that will allow Quick Replies!
