no reason to be disrespectful about it...im not a big fan of the new look, but if i owned the sites and it gave me more traffic then i might have a different opinion. doesnt matter what u or i think, matters if it works or not.

I fully agree. Not only is the blinking annoying, but having to scroll past a 7x6 block of sponser banners is annoying as well. I understand they enable us to keep the site running but there has to be a better way for them to be represented.

And FWIW, all the blinking crap has the opposite effect on me. I am not going to order ANYTHING from a sponsor with 7 blinking banners on the same page. That's ridiculous.

Sounds like it might actually have more of a negative goodwill associated with businesses...just the opposite of what they are trying to accomplish.

3 months from now you might say..oh yea those where the guys that kept giving me headaches and annoyed the hell out of me.

sCw them..Let me find another sponser Lol

Just to add..all those banners should open up on a new page - taking you away from this site is a negative.

I'm not a fan as well. In fact I even considered blocking some of the images. Ultimately I didn't because they are good sites that I sometimes visit.

With that said, I believe that the real estate being used with multiple identical banners could be used as a single larger one that is more aesthetically pleasing.

as someone who is in the advertising world. blinking banners and annoyances only do so much.

take for instance, the HEAD ON commercials for that stupid headache methol roller device. they PURPOSEFULLY make their commercials repetitive and annoying (head on, apply directly to your forehead. head on, apply directly to your forehead, etc) just to keep their product in the consumers head.

but guess what, that shit stiiiiill doesnt work. people will still buy pretty much anything to fix their headache rather then buying that dumb Head On stuff.



Dumb flashing banners are always debated when it comes to only advertising and they historically have been pretty unsuccessful at increase sales.

not a complaint, just stating the reasoning why or why not it works

btw, i do advertising campaigns all day. im in grad school for advertising and still work with people within the field.

There are two options that I see:

1. members pay membership fees to come to the site, and then there won't be a need for sponsors. How many of you are willing to pay that??

2. leave if you don't like it. Noone is putting a gun to your head to be here.

I'd pay a fee. Maybe offer a small fee to pay which loads the site without all the blinking ads. I don't know how difficult that would be to do though.

I bet you guys would be fine if it was Blinking "FREE HGH" or "FREE SAMPLES" :D

How hard is it to scroll down? To give your opinion that you do not care for it is one thing...To be completely disrespectful about it is uncalled for though.

honestly, I'd pay. there is not a better wealth of knowledge about bodybuilding and insight on life in general anywhere else on the internet. but i wouldnt pay alot, $30.00 a year tops :)
