Somebody has spent a lot of time 'improving' the aesthetics of sat.co; you've made it worse! If it works, leave it alone. Please can we have the old easy to use, see, navigate and practical look back. What do you think?

Use the skin selection at the bottom of the page to select classic grey and you'll get the old look back :)

mikk, if you want to keep classic grey as the default, you can select it in your user cp.

Must admit that's what I've done, don't like "new look" one bit, far to small and makes the forum hard to follow.
But at least it's better than the FROG.

Rolf wrote this a couple of weeks ago regarding our banners.

Rolf said:
Unfortunately the idea of the banners is to generate revenue, so putting them where they are less likely to be seen defeats the purpose somewhat. ;)

I don't actually consider that our top page banner is too obtrusive, there is only one and it rotates between the different advertisers, on many sites almost the top 25% of the page is dedicated to advertisers.

I would also add that we would prefer that people do not block out the banners when at home, as they help pay for the site.
If it's a problem at work then you could use ad blocking software or another browser like Firefox.

I was referring to banners and graffiti on my TV like the red dot.

I don't mind the banners etc on this site.
Ok I understand mate but no harm in repeating what Rolf said. :)
