Revival banner ad

    This banner at the bottom of the page seems to interrupt my typing on my iPad whenever it appears. The flash associated with it seems to be the culprit. It's a bit annoying. Does this happen to anybody else? :(

    ...doesn't disturb the lap-top I'm using...

    All Ok here- using a lap top. Just catches the eye.

    I've had some issues when I post from the kindle-fire...thought it might be something to do with the banner but then again it just might be me all thumbs or eye-hand coordination problems w/the stylus. Probably the later as a time of two whatever happens when you click on that banner?...that happened instead of what I was aiming for.

    The Revival Banner is a little aggravating on the iPhone. But everything is aggravating on the iPone, primarily due to Fat Finger Syndrome. Banners on the iPhone sure are not friendly to man hands.

    That's probably what is messing with my iPad. It's really aggravating...to the point I stay away from this site.

    I've reported this to Brian and Jordan but there are apparently some bugs with the banner system. Hopefully they'll be able to get this resolved soon.

    It's not Flash (Flash doesn't work on iDevices), and the system is being revised.

    Yes, I know, that's why I used a lower case "f." I meant the "flash" of lightning. I guess I should have been more clear, but I was having a difficult time typing. ;) o_O :D Thanks Jordan!

    Edit: And please do not take my posts as griping! I think you and the team do an amazing job with this whole site! I was just checking to see if others had the same problem.

    Has it improved? The banner has been disabled since my post.

    All I know is that it scares the crap out of me when I get down towards the end of the page and it 'flips' over to the Mercedes banner.....

    I liked it . . .I always use a desktop system.

    Me too - I prefer my desktop computer - much faster and better operating system - if I use my laptop it is too slow and I get frustrated with it.

    Same here, don't care much for hand-held devices . . .but, it's the way things are now.

    Much better Jordan. Thanks!
    I hope you didn't do it just for me though!

    Conversely, I can't remember the last time I sat down and used our desktop PC. Ever since we got our iPad, it's just about all I use. Different strokes... It's all good!

    I think there was some poorly written code running the rotation. We'll leave it off and just switch out the static banners occasionally. For some odd reason, Firefox doesn't want to display the Revival banner at all. I'll have to deal with that at some point.
