Not sure why this is on here? It's an ok'ish ad with poor AD, anyway why do we keep drowning on about... 'and it's only small in file size', surely we don't judge good creative on that?

Are you kidding? Keeping file size down is part of the creativity of an ad unit.

This website would be pointless if they only posted ad units that had a HUGE file size. I can concept (AND IMPLEMENT) some AWESOME ideas but if they can't be run on any websites what good are they?

maybe you miss read my quote... "file size, surely we don't judge good creative on that?"

To make my point clear(er), we shouldn't look at work that isn't that great and say 'O but it's under 35k' in my opinion if it isn't that great it should not be posted up.

And for the record I totally agree with "Keeping file size down is part of the creativity of an ad unit"

I hope that makes more sense.

File size is important, but I agree that this is nothing stellar.

However, there are many thing on here that aren't stellar.

It's nice to come to this site and get a sampling of what's happening in the online ad world, get a little inspiration, or just see what NOT to do.

In any event, this banner is just as relevant to this site as any other.
