I think it really sucks. you're taking away from the reading space, and you already had sponsor space up at the top. It just takes away from content space. I think it should go back to the other way.

The other way was not working. The ads were too bunched up due to Lawnsite's extreme popularity with Sponsors and Members. This looks like a good compromise, unless anybody has any better ideas? This is called growing pains as many of us have experienced it in the business world.

I don't know...I only see one ad on there anyway, and that is the bob-cat ad. For some reason, I don't get all the advertisers logos on the page...whether it be at the top, or wherever. The best I can guess, is that it must have happened somewhere in my firewall settings, or spyware, or something....

Sorry Lawnsite. I would rather see the sponsors up top. That way I dont have to scroll down. I have signed on to LS just to click on a sponsor's link so I could research a product. Now with them on the right of the screen I have to stop and scroll down. It would be easier for me to go directly to the sponsor's site by googleing it then adding it to my favorites page. If that is the easier way for me to do it then I wouldn't be visiting lawnsite. After I finish my research I usually find myself coming back to lawnsite and making a few post. Like I said before I rather the sponsors up on the top of the site and in my face first.

I agree on the right looks silly and is worse exposure for the advertisers

I just have to say, Thanks for the site guys. I know its gotta be alot of work, and if it takes sponsers to keep it up then I can put up with it. At least Ive got a simple link to look at new equipment. As far as everyone else, Would you rather pay? Maybe they can start up an identical site without sponsers just for you.

We are not mad about the sponsers we just want them all up top (were they have always been) not on the right hand side it makes it so annoying...plus why would a paying sponser want to be on the right side, the exposure is horrible.

Others complained at adding rows at the top. I guess we can't please everyone on everything.

The only thing that is real is that bringing you LawnSite costs a lot of $$, and it is the sponsors who pay that $$.
