Well, I guess I am the only one bothered by this issue since I don't see any other comments on the board about it.

Flashing banners and graphics are really distracting and annoying to me. I stay away from such sites. Although I just signed up today, I'm likely to just go and use WCG instead. There aren't any flashing banners there.

I understand the need for advertisements and I don't mind seeing banners, but when then are moving, flashing, and doing other things to attract attention, it's too much for me to hang around.

Nice site except for that.

I know that Willy will hate for this, but good browsers have ad-blockers.

I hate you (for this)

[OT]I have no influence over what banners are shown. But I promise that when every visitor donates a euro each month, I'll remove them all. Deal?

What had you intended to do with BOINCstats/BAM, that WCG also does? I take it you are a single-project user?

The ads keep the site free. Would you rather pay for a service like this?

Most of the time I just ignore the banners. Sometimes I see something that interests me. But an option that Willy might consider would be something like the system used on http://www.wunderground.com. For a yearly subscription of $10 the advertising is removed when you login to the site. Once the site's cookie is on your computer, whenever you visit the site you will see no banners. If you logon from a different computer, the banners are back on that computer until you login once. But as far as I am concerned the advertising is not really a problem.

I knew I said this once, and I thought about is as soon as I saw this:

Good idea this one, but I wonder whether it will be blocked as well, as it has the letters "ads" in it

I hope it helps

You shouldn't see this banner since you donated. Unless you are not logged in.

I'm logged in and I see it. I don't mind seeing it, it's fine with me. should I translate it for the German translation?
