    If it was like that for the majority of the site, they would be booted/banned immediately, but since it's a small part of the site itself, it's hard to know for sure if it's intentional or accidental with some templating system they use. So in this case, they will be warned.

    If it was something obvious in the HTML that was doing it, it would be different (like a hidden layer or something). I just think their HTML formatting is whack. heh

    Are mouse over links allowed? When the visitors mouse over all the links are displayed. Not for hiding them just for cosmetics.

    It is up to Shawn. But I would vote that is NOT okay for the coop. I think ads should be "clearly" visible.

    Looks like you already replaced it. The links are pretty clear to me.

    nevets, I think there is a difference in browsers. IE shows it as a mouse over, others see them as links. But anyway if Shawn or the majority of other co-op members says it is unsuitable I will replace it. Was more a test to see if it would work or not.

    The general opinion thought it was unsuitable so I have changed it back. Does anyone see the text that exam is seeing, something like:

    The "yourcan_ads.txt" file should be writable

    And if so why can I not see it?

    It would appear they are running ads from one of the copycat networks

    *..running ads from one of the copycat networks*

    There are copy-cat networks already?

    Is http://www.kalsey.com/textad/ a competing ad network banned under the TOS?

    It is an advertising co-op like digital point with user added ads but for blogs.
