Just so you all are aware, tonight around 24:00 I will implement a new ad in our website. This ad will cover the entire background of the site.
This ad will solve most financial pressure Armaholic is giving me as I am the one paying for everything you folks use and also I can now for example invest in a new server (to be announced in the future), more powerfull so the site runs more stable (hopefully).


Feel free to check out the advertiser, it might actually interest many of you. I have tried the beta myself and I lack the time, but its rather interesting to play around on this battlefield. And from April 12th the game is actually launched officially across Europe so no beta testing anymore, this is the ready and tested product.


And in case you don't like the ad, well......... I don't care since every month my money goes out of the window as if its nothing, not yours :-)


I had to make a sacrifice with the website with regards to the position of the website (not centered). I am still trying to find a solution for that. But our website skin never was designed to have a background ad so its not easy to change it all.

24:00? did god give you an extra hour? :-D

If it helps to free the money you have to spend to keep arma's best site running then I will put up with it :-)

EDIT:

If its just been applied now then its knocked the layout of the site on all pages... (very wide)

Of course he did, God loves Armaholic. He actually loves the entire BIS series and checks for news daily.
When he saw we worked so hard to keep the community informed he gave us an extra hour..........yep. How else did you have in mind we can do what we are doing?

In FF and IE the site should be good. I did not get any feedback about other versions when testing.......so I don't know. But it should be all ok.

LOL you and your comebacks :-D

Seems to have returned to normal now, seeing the add in full now aswell, feels like an arma site is plugging a new game, but as said earlier if it stops you having to pay out of your own pocket I'm all for it, I'm using chrome btw...

Cause the one making the Arma games is not interested in advertising, so any advertiser will be (if its game related) a different game :-)
But Big and I already decided when this advertiser decides to not continue we are going to make a nice Arma background, nothing fancy etc. Just some nice easy background, referencing the game :-)

VIPER im using Chrome and its all to the left for me :-( but Fox, saying that if we not like it then so what
blah blah, man this is much better! would it be a monthly change of background to different adds etc?

Final thing, how much you need each month for the site? PM me and ill try if not help out a little when I
can, I would of already donated already, just that with being in China and having no PayPal it makes it
all the more difficult for me. *WRITE*

Too me it looks good.

Ok, cleared my cache, its on the left for Chrome and wide as hell with no background at all
with IE9. Unless you guys are using different browsers, the feedback would be nice?

Thanks

In opera is like BattleDonkey's image.

But since i never have the window maximized it looked OK to me.
