    I don't want to see advertisements in the forums for telerik products I already own as part of the Ultimate Collection

    I do not want to see this :)



    <div class="forumsBannerHolder" id="ctl00_PageContent_usercontrols_public_forums_previewforumthread_ascx1_repeaterMessages_ctl02_pnlForumBannerHolder">
        
            <img src="/Images/ForumBanners/2011-03-ORM-Forum-Banner.jpg" style="border-width: 0px; border-style: solid;" usemap="#rade_img_map_1298980809192" alt="">
    <map id="rade_img_map_1298980809192" name="rade_img_map_1298980809192">
    <area shape="RECT" coords="1,181,202,198" href="http://www.telerik.com/products/orm/free.aspx" target="_blank" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackPageview', '/forum-banners/aspnet-ajax/orm-free-overview']);" alt="Telerik OpenAccess ORM Free Edition">
    <area shape="RECT" coords="795,173,884,203" href="http://www.telerik.com/products/orm.aspx" target="_blank" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackPageview', '/forum-banners/aspnet-ajax/orm-overview']);" alt="Telerik OpenAccess ORM">
    <area shape="RECT" coords="648,172,766,203" href="http://www.telerik.com/account/free-trials/trial-product-versions/single-trial.aspx?pmvid=0&amp;pid=638" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackPageview', '/forum-banners/aspnet-ajax/orm-trial']);" target="_blank" alt="Download Telerik OpenAccess ORM">
    </map>
    </div>

    Also the banners are DIV elements in between the LI items, not nested in the LIs themselves (I mean renders okay, but not valid IMO)

    Thank you for the feedback, Steve.

    With the ever growing Telerik portfolio and client base we are facing the challenge of educating our users of the advantages that the Telerik suite provides to developers. Indeed, this is no news for clients who already own and use the Premium and Ultimate collections, such as yourself. But our forums are used mostly by trial users and newcomers, and we feel it is vital to share this knowledge with them.

    The banners will also be used for promotions (such as the Ninja Game), and important news (such as events and Webinar Weeks). What may be considered good news is that these will be on Telerik-related material only, i.e. another source of Telerik-related information. We are still experimenting at this stage. We will take action in case this endeavor does not help in solving the challenges we face.

    Feel free to use the support ticketing system if you find the Forum banners annoying.
     

    Kind regards,
    Vassil

    It's just the intrusiveness of them

    Showing after every two posts (it seems) and the markup shows you can put them after every post.

    210px per ad

    Can you maybe at least just put them at the top or bottom?

    Hi Steve,

    We are still experimenting and we will update their position in case our users find them too intrusive.

    Thank you for the feedback - much appreciated.



    All the best,
