I have had requests from a couple of people for Banners they can put up on their sites they can use to link to us from.

Seeing as my time at the moment really needs to be focused on TT and the coming launch, I thought I'd ask you lot to knock up a couple for us. { Animated gifs would be superb, but plain pics would be fine. }

So for the more artistic amongst you, it would be apprieciated if you could throw something together in the general banner sizes you see out there.

Input from others on "Short but Sweet" slogans would be great too.

The obvious ones are

"Free Trading Software for Betfair"
"Welcome to the Free Revolution"

Thanks

Excellent, can you do a muppet one as well. IE Don't be a toad, don't be a muppet, use the geeks toy.

Also, can you make the geeks toy the first image for browsers that don't flash through the slides.

At the moment the toad is the first pic that shows.

Some browsers don't show anything but the first pic. So the first pic needs to be the "Use TT".

Make sense.

You can't use the term "Betfair Software" as it implies the software is Betfairs.

To be honest though (yep you have found my weakness, creativity, only one though :O ), I would think the basic idea would be best. Simple screenshots of the program in its various forms.
Speaking personally, I am more interested in numbers than pictures. If I am going to follow a link for Betfair software, I am going to click on a pretty picture of the program before I click on anything else, no matter the slogan.

Well, here is my contribution:

http://www.rvasi.me/ostalo/geekstoy.gif

Actually, I haven't used The Toy at all yet; I'm still on the waiting list, so banner is based upon your opinions... :D

Screenshots used for this banner are from Don't give up your day job (http://dontgiveupyourjob.blogspot.com/2009/10/like-buses.html), where I've heard about The Toy; that's why screenshots are turbid... :(

@Knight Rider, if I may give an advice: I like your banner, but it simply flashes too fast - I've tried to read what's written there, and I gave up after several tries, as I had feeling my eyes began to sore... :eek:

OK Many thanks to all who have contributed so far.

Without a doubt, The dog, the muppet, the Angel & Holoverse's contributions are the best in my view.

From this point, can contributors focus on either...

A. "The Dog gets it." -- Both better looking variations of this in terms of font. Also different banner shapes & sizes. { maybe an animated version of it. }
B. Ditto the Angel
C. New ideas for Banners from this point forward of roughly the same image sizes as the below for blogs.

I think that it would be necessary to remove the white around the odds, that will be more aesthetic,
But the simplest voucher it still is to go on a site of handwritting! On all the forums we can make requests of banners, signatures, etc.

I just had the below request. If anyone is capable fancies knocking up a banner for me as a favour that would be great. We shall use the best of what's here.

Thanks

TG




We can start off with the standard 468 x 60 banner then perhaps add in a 125 x 125 square ad and .... What the hell, here's the standard sizes for ad banners. In no particular order...

468 x 60
125 x 125
160 x 600
120 x 600
300 x 250
728 x 90

That's enough to be getting on with I think.

What about the video? Any official ones going about?

First of all.. Geeks Toy is awsome:))) Thankx. Ill definitly donate when im on green ground :)

I have one problem with hedge. On the ladder, after backing high and laying low i get a green bold $profit on top left. So i just click there do whatever the confirmation message say and enter the trade. It will get matched and i get green whatever the game ends and the green bold $profit is not bold anymore. Anyway, during the match it becomes bold again, and im sure it means i can headge again. But imnot sure about this.

My question is, after it become bold again can should i hedge only if $profit is greater then previous $profit already hedged? or should i just hedge anyway?

Thanks Geek

btw, refresh doesnt work after midnight. I allways have to close and reopen Toy. Cheers

If the figure is bold it means you need to hedge. However what can happen is you will hedge out, but due to rounding, the calculation may differ by a penny depending on the price, which may turn it bold again. You don't need to re hedge when this happens, but if you do it will just put a penny bet in.



btw, refresh doesnt work after midnight. I allways have to close and reopen Toy. Cheers

I believe this is something to do with Betfair expiring your API access after a certain length of time. Only workaround currently is to shut down the toy & re-start as you have done.
