Anyone else find them f*ing irritating, particularly the "Apache Light Plus" rock shoes one? Yes, it catches your attention all right, but it's OTT and puts me right off ever wanting to buy them ...

there is a solution, but if I mention it, this post will probably disappear...

Agreed, but I actually don't want to go down that route, because I enjoy reading the more sane adverts.
In reply to Trangia:

I know the ones you mean and will feed this back to the advertiser.

The banners in question have actually been up on site for a few years now and could probably do with a change. I'll see if we can get something less flashy through this time.

Thanks for the feedback too.

I've got Glenmore Lodge flashing away at me at the top and at the side of the screen as we speak and it pisses me off too.
In reply to jon:

Funnily enough I emailed them about their banners yesterday, should be updated ASAP

Never have I felt so ahead of the game as I have now...

Stick a post it note on the screen to cover it up.

I agree with you - static adverts are fine but the flashy ones make me reach for the 'tool that shall not be mentioned'.
I think it would be less annoying with smooth transitions.

Does the use of 'the tool that cannot be mentioned' actually reduce your revenue? How does it work?
