Could we have a banner?
I have a few small banners on my site which link to what I consider good websites, forums, streaming radio and suchlike. I'd quite like to put one on for AOline, is there any chance of this?

Sure. I'll see what we have in the way of graphics.

Did you ever get a chance to look into this? It would be nice to have something to put on for instance my site, that links here. If people had this option we might get more visitors which is always good.

I'm sorry Moira, I did forget. We're in upgrade hell for about 8 months. Also intmon the site editor was on vacation. Now that he's back I'll get him on it.

I just received some banners from our art department--I had put in the request before my vacation--and I will get them up on the site ASAP. I've attached the GIF version, and will also have a Flash version for those who want it.

I've got the GIF version displayed as we speak intmon Many thanks and I look forward to seeing the others!

I had to open my site in IE to get an embedded video to show correctly (firefox couldn't find the plugin) and whilst I was there I noticed that the AntiOnline banner wasn't displaying properly, the link worked but instead of the banner I just got that red cross symbol and the text.
The same thing used to be displayed in place of my sitemeter until I hashed that entry out of the customised hosts file. I wouldn't have thought anything could be adblocking an AO banner in IE but not in Firefox though?
Does anyone have any suggestions? It's not a great advert for the forum if a banner doesn't even display correctly.

Intmon's banner shows up fine for me... Not sure what you're talking about, but I don't think it's the banner (unless I'm missing something)

Are you posting the picture of the banner on your site or are you "picturetrailing" it?(linking to a picture).

I am posting this code:
And in Firefox getting this displayed (as I ought to) yet Internet Explorer displays this.

This tends to support my first instinct which is that some ad blocking measure I've put in place is stopping the banner displaying in IE .... I just don't know what it could be that affects IE and not Firefox. If you can see the banner just fine and the same code displays it in Firefox then clearly there's nothing wrong with either the code or the banner, but I can't work out what's causing this.
