I see we’ve got banners at the bottom of pages advertising Segue, but I’m already here… :?
The banner-ad is to remind you where you are so that you don’t do anything strange. Doesn’t seem to be working for everyone.
The banner ad that appears after I post lists some of the good stuff I can get/do here, then tantalises me with “and best of all” before the page redirects. I never find out what is best of all.
This is really infuriating!
I’ve set up Pop-Down banners for lurkers to the forum. When you arrive to most Segue Taiwan webpages, you have 30 seconds to login, or a Pop-Down appear (this is a “pop-up” window that appears behind the current window)
I plan to rotate banners that refer to specific topics and forums, tips about how to use this website more efficiently, and promotional ads for friends and other Taiwan-related websites.
pop-ups, pop-downs and pop-unders all smell :x
