Is the Ad annoying?

Is the advertisement I set up on top of CFS homepage annoying? I was thinking of contacting Christian companies if they were interested in the ad space. That should help us offset some expenses. With the extra income, I could make CFS even better. :D

I would like your feedback. :)

Just an update:

SiteUptime.com will be monitoring CFS from now on. I'll get a detailed report from them if our site experiences any downtime. :)

At first it looked very odd. I understand the need to raise support but how about having it somewhere esle on the page rather than being the first thing people see. Just a thought.

Suggestion taken. I wasn't sure how others would feel. Thanks Ray. :D
How about a one/two line advertisement? :)

I'm just testing it out in various ways.

I agree with Ray on the positioning but other then that no problem. In fact Jeff I am not sure I have been on any forums where they didn't have sponsors- advertisement for them and financial assist to help CFS grow- I call that a win, win situation!

The new smaller version that is online now is fine but prob too small to bring in much income.
How about a small one like that at the top and a large one at the bottom of the page?

The AD area kind of blends into the rest of the top area of the forum.

To give the sponsor some additional "eye candy", can the header just above the click-link be colored yellow with bold blue and black lettering in just that one area? I have my doubts on that ability, but something should be done to that AD area to make it an attention getter rather than just allowing it to blending in to the rest of the forum color scheme.

I can't do it exactly the way it would look because of text limitations but you may get the idea...

Yes, I did think about this. :)

As long as they are Christian ads or at least not nonChristians ads, I don't see a problem with using a couple!
They won't be the offensive type. I'll chose carefully.

If ads keep the christian content up on the web, then do it! There is too much junk out on the web.
