    Banners on WHT...

    I am curious, and I didn't find a section about this...

    On the WHT advertisements banners, I was under the impression the banners couldn't flash, or can't be considered "annoying".

    This one seemed a tad irritating, especially when using my laptop

    It does look low budget, but it could of been MUCH more annoying.

    Well i've simply replaced all banners with an image of my choice. Works for me, and the image is static.

    That is pretty annoying.

    Plus, the animation only works on the old skin.

    Banners... WHT has banners?

    See, I didn't actually start blocking them until Inet got crazy... and I guess they are going to be adding "Flash Banners" on Monday.

    Some banners can be a bit irritating. But then again, there are ways to disable them.

    Overall I think most banners shown at WHT are fine.

    I just got a 700x80 (or near that size) banner in the top banner spot. I think it was for deleted domains. Looks like these bigger banners are going to be standard in that space, which is better for advertisers, imo.
