I've only just noticed (for the first time) that HD has an automated advertsing system...looks very cool in fact!

When was that implemented?

Yes indeed. Ben, w3matter ad software is a very powerful script. We implemented it sometime around May 2004 I think.

Best,

Advertsing - they have lyrical adverts ? Will have to get some speakers for this thing ...

Actually, i'm going to ask the daftest of questions - *what* are you talking about - where is the "automated advertising" ?

I mean I see the banners at the top/bottom, although tend to run graphics-off so they're not that appealing, I see the text links and think thats a good idea. My only objection to any of the ad's is that once you take ino account the banner, navbar, textlinks, hd "ways to support / reward store" (this should only be on the frontpage IMHO) and thread heading box you dont actually get any "post" on the first page

Actually, now pictures are back on just realised another 3 inches of deadspace at the bottom of every page with the gradated bar / logo *again*

Why is that a problem ? Man of us do things like chcek forums, read posts etc when out and about - and d/loading all that extra stuff takes time on a mobile/wifi connection, and the paging donw to read a thread or hitting end and having to page up to get to the latest info just makes it cumbersome.

All minor things i know, but slightly modified would make HD even better
