Thanks a milllion!  That's just what I needed to know.  If I have another question I will ask.  Thanks again.

As an avid page refresher just to see what new banners I can come up with I would suggest to amass a gallery of all the banners so they could be perused at leisure. There is a lot of great stuff around. :)

That's kinda weird, but if you really want I can send you a pack with all the images. I'm also happy to send the images and the code to anyone who wants to run their own banner rotation (as Blackwyrm does.) You don't even have to use all of the banners we do, although it would certainly be nice.

Anyone else missing the banners on their pages? 

I haven't seen a banner on any PPG page all day!

Well...

- If you're using a non-default forum theme you won't see the banners (yet)
- If you've installed an ad blocker, you probably won't see the banners.
- If the server is very overloaded, it typically doesn't render the banners.

Is Tutu at a higher rotation than anything else, or have I just been unlucky?

Tutu itself has 2 of the (currently) 72 spots in the rotation, so just luck.

I recommend tabbed browsing to anyone who wants to see a lot of banners as I always get a neat collection of at least a dozen or so displayed at the same time (in different tabs of course). ;)

Truly hypnotic.

You gonna send me that new banner of yours when you've lopped off half the filesize? :)

Sweet!  ;D


I can't see WeiDU, though. It's one of my favourites.

I'm adding them as I come across them (my reload frenzy ran out of steam after a while). :)

Although if someone points me in the direction of the WeiDU banner or the Tiefling Sisters one, I would be grateful. The filename combinations I've tried are yet to work. 

JC, when I have one that has been updated to include my mod's actual name, I'll surely send you something. :)

I'd prefer the URL, just because it's easier for me to type the URL into the photobucket upload page instead of uploading it from my computer into my account.

Wooo - that makes no sense, but I blame the FORTY-TWO DEGREE WEATHER. Not happy, Jan!  >:(

I'll send you the banners.txt rotation list, then, and you can copy the image names out of there.

For the banner ad enthusiasts. :)

That would make a nice wallpaper!

ON the other issue of not seeing banners I guess its my add blocker though i haven't changed anything since i last used it! Oh well...the hunt begins for the offending setting!

There have been nearly 20,000 banner clicks since the counters were reset in August. (I was going to wait for it to actually reach 20K, but I got impatient.)

If I'm interpreting Webalizer correctly, there were about 2.5 million banners served up during that period. It's probably somewhat less than that, but that's what's in the "pages" section of pocketplane.net and forums.pocketplane.net.

Unique banners in rotation: 66
Non-PPG banners in rotation: 44

I just noticed one of the banners has a typo.  Not sure which one, since I only saw it as I was moving to a new page, so it switched.  The typo was "fiesty", at any rate.  Not sure how much good that does anyone.  Heh.

I'd be proud that Tutu was up there twice, but being in such illustrious company as PPG diversion, and One-Day NPCs just...  I dunno, killed a little bit of my soul.  Yeah, that sounds about right.

Yes, Ghreyfain. You cannot battle banners featuring Richard Dawson, a llama, and a map of England. It's been proven in vast gobs of marketing research by Cromptini Corp.
