Annoying

I know we need sponsors, but don't you find that TireRack popup at the bottom of the screen damn annoying.

Hi, It still looks the same size to me as I have a 28" lcd monitor, but would'nt it be better if you turned there TireRack ad at the top of the screen into a scrolling ad. That way when a special was advertised it turned into a scroll to get your attention and when the special was finished it reverted back to a banner ad?

Your thoughts?

It's just as I am typing this reply with this bright banner at the bottom which you are not use to and if you drag your mouse down to low & click it takes you to TireRack. If you then X out you losse your forum thread reply that I just typed, so not to loose the thread you have to hit the back button not the X button.

My $0.02

Its okay on my laptop.

Gotta support the sponsors. Tirerack overall is a great tire supply company.

Too bad our Cdn dollar is tanking, it was great to order from them.

Looks fine. Didn't notice it until this thread. I just bought a set of winters for my ML from them--good outfit with great prices and service.

It's what keeps this site online. Get rid of it and you get rid of the site. Don't think enough would want to pay a subscription fee to make it fly.

The Tire Rack is awesome but that ad isn't. I guess it's just time to avoid the wheel and tire forum.

It is for making money, it does not cost as much to run as you think.

The power of the site is in the users, without them the site does not exist and neither do advertising dollars.

It's obnoxious in my opinion. A single ad here and there that are placed in a specific spot on the page are less annoying. But one big one that stays there as you scroll around is. But money talks and apparently Tire Rack is taking advantage of that.
