Do the advertising banners really have to be so big?
On my 19" screen, the browser window has an effective display height of 20 cm.
Starting from the top, there is almost 4 cm for the navigation band with the advertising banner, a further 3 cm for the title and introductory sentence, then a further 6 cm for a massive advertising splash inviting me to take out a subscription (another one, on top of the one I already have?), then another 2 cm for white space and heading. So the actual content is squeezed into the bottom 5 cm (a mere quarter of the browser window height). If I want to see more, I have to scroll for it.
I hope that an improved layout will soon be developed.

Homepage ad no longer shown to members May 30, 2006

Hi Victor,

Of course you're right that it makes little sense to show the big membership advertisement to you since you are already a member. I have made a change that should cause that ad to no longer be shown to existing members. Thanks for your feedback.

Best regards,

Jason

Homepage on the blink May 31, 2006

I do find it annoying though that the advertising is flashing. It's smaller now, but I am a member and I still have this advertisement flashing around at two locations when I just want to check what's new on the forums or job section.

Would it be possible to not have these TWO ads flashing, asking me to sign up? I signed up years ago. Especially the one on the left is annoying because you cannot scroll away from it.

Btw - What happened to the Kudoz short overview though? It's disappeared.

Wow, what a whopper!!!! Jun 7, 2006

Do you really need to crowd everything else off the screen just to make sure we see the advertising?

I recently protested about the 6 cm high membership advert on the home page. You solved that problem ....

But I hadn't seen anything yet !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

THE LATEST SDL TRADOS SPLASH IS A SEVEN AND A HALF CENTIMETRES HIGH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Sorry about shouting, but that sentence was not nearly as loud as the latest ad).

In my innocence, I come to ProZ for the content. I accept advertising, but not if advertising is all that I can see.

So please do something about it.
