The ad has to be one of the two sizes listed in the first post: 728x90 or 300x250. Yours is neither.

FYI, the required size for the banner ad is 728x90.

The box ad is cool, but the animation is a bit much. You can leave it basically as is but the last frame should last much longer, maybe 30s to be acceptable.

Thanks! I was pretty sure I double checked the dimensions for that one but it does look a bit off compared to the others! Will have to check and re-work it tomorrow, thanks for telling me! And thanks for the input on the other one, I'll change that tomorrow as well and edit my first post with the updated banners!

I'm actually not sure what went wrong with the long banner the first time around, probably some issue with hosting the picture at another website since it was the right dimensions but got resized when I posted it. It's fixed now (through magic I guess since I didn't change anything and suddenly it just worked) so here's the updated ads!

Regarding animated banners, we won't accept banners that are too flashy. chifayee, that's a fine banner, but the animation is a little too much. Could you slow it down a bit and add a longer interval between animation loops? i.e. it should go through one loop, chill for a while, and then it can go again.

I think the last frame of that banner (with the text fully visible) would make a great non-animated banner, for what it's worth :'D It also avoids the odd appearance of the leaves moving back and forth instead of consistently falling (or rising).

Chifayee - if I might chime in? I'm actually a web designer at a marketing agency. This is what I do for my job.

I agree that the last frame of the banner would be a great banner. If you want to have some animation, just have maybe a little bit of the glow on the eye? But the biggest thing I'd say you might want to do is have some sort of call to action. Some sort of "read now" or "read more".

This might be a little too late, but if this is still open to test ads, I've got a couple.
