So Goldfish has come up with a way to offer a house ad to people running ad blocker.

Since only people with ad blocker will see this, we might as well call them out... Something like:

"If you're gonna block the ads, at least buy something from the store!"

The rest is up to you; some sort of fun and exciting visual that sums up the great stuff you can buy in the store. The best ad will be seen by thousands of bandwidth moochers, and if there are several good ones, we'll set up a random rotation!

Width: 728
Height: 90

The creator of the BEST ad will also get $30 store credit.

Thanks in advance to anyone who participates!!!! Good luck!

UPDATE BECAUSE I'M AN IDIOT:
If you can submit a 599 wide shrunken version in this thread, that would be great. We'll then ask for the file if you win. You can also use Photobucket or whatever to host the full image and link it here. The most perfect entry would be a 599 wide version for quick viewing, and a link to the full version. Sorry about that.

Do you want us to link to our entries on photobucket or something similar?


I used to be relevant.

Could w- THEY just block that picture too? They can't block the frame, but the picture is sure to be blocked.

Also, I need more info. Will this be an animated flash ad or a stationary graphic? And where do you want us to submit the final product to?

OMFG SHOOT ME IN THE HEAD. I totally forgot we have a whole "size limit" here.

I guess if it's not too big a pain in the ass, you could post a shrunken version in this thread and we can request full versions from the winners. Sorry about that... :(

Nice but it should say, "but your mouse isn't."

It's a play on the word broke... as in broke that the ad blocker isn't working, and not broke as in you have money. I was hoping I didn't have to explain it :(

A few questions:

Can it be an animated ad or must it be "static"? and is there a deadline?
