    So after seeing this yet again, I had to point out it's the worst advertisement banner I've ever seen. This is something beyond lazy.

    They appeared 2 or 3 times, and I never clicked them. They were a yieldmanager link or something of the sort. What bothered me most was not the lack of context, it was the poor artwork. It look like someone prtsc'd some flash player and did some mild editing to make a graphic.

    In the defence of whoever created them, they probably looked normal in the default style...

    I was evaluating them on a general level, but by what you say, it implies that the ad was tailor made for this forum. That begs the repeat of the question posed earlier:

    Nahh what I was getting at is that most sites have a white background, not black; that ad probably looked fine on a white background (which the default style has).

    That ad space is yieldmanager, they provide a lot of different ads, none of which are tailor made for this site.

    I've been playing FST for awhile now... but so far they've only let me download a PS3. I of course deleted it because I already have a 360

    How did you unlock that? I'm on level 121 and haven't managed to download the PS3 yet.
