    Vote...new Ad on left of screen

    I noticed today a new advertisement appearing on the left side of the RBW screen. I usually do a search of all new post and it appears. It's currently an advertisement for Golem Gear with drops of water falling.

    I find it very annoying in this location. Anyone else feel the same?

    Nothing to do with the subject just the location as the one at the top right does not bother me.

    any add with motion is annoying and should not be allowed.

    This is just a test, since RBW is live this is the only way we can see things once completed. I agree, the motion is not good.

    I hate advertising in general, but I figure if it helps the sight be financially viable, then sure, particularly since it's on the home page, wich I spend about half a second on each time I check for new posts.

    I kind of find the add somewhat novel compared to most i've seen, but then again I like water and cryptic messages. Annoying was the KISS add that was run on scubaboard for so long.

    as long as an add like the golem one doesn't make it onto the posting page, i'm ok with it.

    if add like this could be kept off the main posting pages, i'd be fine with it.

    While it's different from what we might be used to... I am fine with what Curt and the team choose to do to run the site... That being said, lots of motion on the left hand side of the screen after a night out on the town may make checking RBW a little risky... So keep the ad.... limit the motion... or... ugly things could happen after a night of to much if anyone doubts this we can test it after the RBW festivities at BTS....

    It's annoying, but you need to cover costs somehow.

    You get what you pay for guys, if you don't like it gather your rebreather information elsewhere. How about Curt makes this a member site with a yearly membership? 50 bucks a year. Then you wouldn't have to deal with any ads.

    I for one can put up with the guy trying to make some cash while providing a valuable service to the community.

    Christ look at scubaboard, RBW is tame in comparison.
