New BCA Banner
« on: June 11, 2019, 02:08:51 pm »
Look up, see the new BCA banner??

This space has always been empty awaiting an advert/banner from BCA, though for various reasons it never got done - until today  :)

The above has been designed by Gary ( :thumbsup: :thumbsup:) and added to the forum for £0.

Click on the banner and it takes you through to the BCA website.

Hope you like it, Pegasus

Looks grand - and thanks Gary for yet another example of all the work you do for our benefit.

Is that silhouette where Lower Long Churn breaks out into Alum Pot?    :-\

Sure is, well spotted  :)

...and yes, thanks Gary.

There are lots and lots of volunteers working away doing all sorts of things for the good of caving.  I'm rather hoping that moving forward there will be a lot more positivity about especially regarding BCA (as we're on this thread).

I'd like to end with 'onwards and upwards', however that would apply more to climbing - 'onwards and downwards' doesn't sound so good  :-[  but you get the gist..... ;D

Nope - haven't got an adblocker extension.  I see adds on other sites.

I can only see the banner on the topic area of BCA, not on any other forum area nor on the ukCaving home page.  I had presumed that was the intention, else no doubt someone will complain that BCA is taking over ukCaving forum (rather than as it had seemed at times, the other way around  ;D )

Do you see the Inglesport, Starless River and SpanSet banners on other boards?

My browser seems uber-keen on blocking anything it thinks is an advert, including this, even when ukcaving is whitelisted anywhere I can find an option to do it. Try opening the page in a "private" or "incognito" window - they shouldn't block anything. The banner looks great!

Attached below for those that can't see it.

I don't see the banners when logged on, but do when logged off. Firefox and Chrome.

I don't know if this is the right place to raise this, but wasn't there a load of fuss recently because an outdoor clothing manufacturer published adverts with a climber climbing up some stal?

so what's on the home page of the BCA ?

I'm not sure why people don't see the ads. I've tried on several browsers and platforms both logged in and not logged in and always see all the ads. To my knowledge the only thing that can stop the ads is an ad blocker. You may not know you have one. I will keep an eye on it.

I selected under the Forum 'Look and Layout' option to not see users avatars and signatures, perhaps it is something there for people who can't see the banner?

If it helps diagnose...
I can see the banner, but not any ad's, logged in, in Chrome 75.0.3770.80 in Linux Mint 19.1 cinnamon x64. It can also be seen in Firefox 67 on the same OS. uBlock Origin (used on both browsers) may be doing something different to ABP.

I'll disable my adblocker when ad's cease to be prime malware vectors, until then it stays on, no exceptions.

Good point. I can't see it on any other thread, forum, or sub forum.

I think it should only appear on the BCA sub-forum.
