again, here? we have static advertising banner under the menu bar. it's been set to the same robo kojo for some time now. i'm not saying it's impossible, but i haev no idea how that would have changed to something other than what we currently show.

if this was indeed the case please send a screen shot to me via email and i will report the issue to mini-z who will investigate further.

cosmicsoul, I'm extremely concerned about this - please see if you can repro, as there's absolutely no way I'd ever allow anything like that on any of our sites. The most likely explanation is that either another site you visited had pop-up/under ads that you'd not noticed and seemed like they were to do with us, or that you have some malware on your computer that's injecting things into what is displayed (on your PC only).
This is actually something I have very strong feelings about, as it seems like there is some inexplicable link between cars/racing and the objectification of women, and it really irks me. For example, SPEED for some reason a little while ago started saturating their web site and commercials with some kind of "girls of SPEED" or something which to me just poses the question - is their product really that weak that they have to try to appeal to men via their hormones instead of relying on the strength of the product? Thankfully it seems like they've toned it down recently. We understand that MZR is frequented by enthusiasts in their young teens to retirees, male and female, with a range of sensibilities, and we strive to ensure that things are kept appropriate for all and do not stray from the overall topic at hand. I really appreciate you bringing this up, and please take a screen capture if you're able to reproduce this again. Thanks!

I don't know if this is possible, but I have seen then on some sites that the ads move down as the screen is scrolled down, just a thought?

it would work great for the Shop and News portions.
Thanks for all the positive feedback guys, I really appreciate your kind words!

Just to make sure it's clear, the current sidebar is just a very early version of what we have planned, just so we can test the waters. It's going to get a lot cooler and more useful!
