I want the logogogo version. That one sounds like a party!

I think the ads above the logo looks ridiculous. However, what does everyone else think?

The add doesn't need to be wider, just not breaking up the unity of the page context. I'm looking at the scale of the whole page together, not just the ad.

But as of now, I do like the positioning at the top of the page more. Just not the size of the ad itself.

I agree with Tage it looks silly up there.  What about on the site or after the first post in every thread?

Is there a reason it can't be placed at the bottom? Like before the TWG powered by...

I wouldn't want to break up the flow from post to post, that would be very obtrusive.

I liked it better when it wasn't as wide. And I prefer the logo at the top of the page. Smaller and under the logo wasn't as obtrusive.

How about on top with no border and whatnot? I'm not sure it's the best, but it looks better than the big bright box up there.

I still like the two thin ads under the logo, but if ya'll like the "just words" version above the logo, I can live with that.

We can switch to the thin two-word ads above the logo, too, if the wider one is too much.

part of the reason it looks off is that the header graphic doesn't fill the screen.

Yeah, and it never has. We always had the "white box" on the right because of it. But if we're centering ads at the top of the page, we might as well center the freaking logo.

I really like them under the logo better, now that I've seen it both ways. And I dig the "just words" version.

I have to say, I really like the "just words" under the logo as well. Can we try this out for a bit?

Is there anyway to change it so these adds open in a new window?  Right now they cause you to leave TWG which is a bad thing, if we can't then I vote to dump the adds.

Um... I can't see any ads.  Anywhere.

Why would that be?
