What the Heck is with the Banner?

If you have been here before today I am sure you noticed that the scrolling banner at the top of the page is new. Perhaps you expect to ignore whatever it says on a regular basis. I hope to convince you otherwise.

The main purpose of the banner is to communicate urgent messages to all users. Awesome Theory staff will put up messages that are important to know right away because we know you will not always check the forums frequently. We are also going to use to put in messages for you when there is something new for you to do.

If that was all there was to it, this would probably be no big deal to anybody. However, we are giving you the ability to purchase banner messages with mullets. Look at the image below taken from the store


Buying banners at the store

Hopefully it is obvious, but you need to put a message in the message field, and choose a username in the drop-down list if it is a message for a specific user. Only that user will be able to see the message in that event. If you purchase the message for everyone, it will appear in the banner of every user's page until it expires

So, for example, if you buy a message for me that calls me a giant douche, that will scroll by on the top of every page on the site I visit until it expires. I hope some of you will be very creative. Keep it clean, though, vulgar or sexually explicit messages will be deleted and their authors will be fined.

What might keep users from just ignoring the messages the create for them? We cannot make people read it, but I will let slip that rogue mullets might appear in the message.

On a final note, users can get multiple messages, and will display in a last in first out manner. i.e. the last banner message purchased will be the first one displayed on a user's page. Have fun and enjoy the new feature!

Banner, truly, for the win.

So how does the que work if multiple messages are payed for for the entire site or even multiple messages for one user?

Comment by: NinjaPirate -- Date: 2007-11-20 10:54:46

LOL - I will look into it and make sure they are expiring correctly

Comment by: Nemesis -- Date: 2007-11-19 00:29:35

I think it will say you are a giant douche for only a day, and only you can see it. I did not want to spend that many mullets, lol.

Muy interesante!

Comment by: CUTiger -- Date: 2007-11-18 11:11:58

Well now I have to watch the whole banner scroll by cuz I found a mullet on the end of it.

Comment by: Asno667 -- Date: 2007-11-18 10:28:35

and wait....is everybody seeing that or just me?????

Comment by: tragedy -- Date: 2007-11-18 10:09:50

So, how long exactly is this thing going to be saying i'm a giant douche?

Comment by: tragedy -- Date: 2007-11-18 09:50:42

very cool addition!

Comment by: Nemesis -- Date: 2007-11-18 06:26:33

I don't believe that. I have already read too deeply into a previous statement. I refuse to acknowledge your contradiction.

Comment by: Malcompliant -- Date: 2007-11-17 23:39:34

We do not control them, we only try to urge them to go in certain directions. No one can control these mullets, that is why they are rogue mullets.

Comment by: Buckramega -- Date: 2007-11-17 23:21:39

Wait a moment... You mean the rogue mullets I've been diligently hunting are under your control?!!
