A banner ad runs on every page of this website. Each banner ad consists of an image, a link, and a descriptive sentence about the service or product. These banners are displayed on the right side of desktop browser pages and within forum threads. On mobile devices we display a text version of the banner at the top of every page and the banner image gets placement in-between our news posts (as well as within the threads of forum pages).
