Sometimes I am subconsciously paying attention to the banner ads at the top of the page, but not fully, and realize too late that a banner ad has gone by and I would like to know more. But I have clicked through to a new page and it is gone. Do I see it again? Do I remember that I was interested, until waahhh it's gone again. Wash, rinse, repeat. End result is that there are ads I wish I'd followed, and cast my soul into hell if I ever say that again.
I think it would be nice for the permies.com sponsors and me to have a page (maybe a sticky thread) that just contains all the banner ads so one could peruse them, generate some click-throughs, and let the sponsors feel the love a little more.
Or maybe I should just use the mouse with more intention.

I get it that the rotation is run by a random generator. Some are Google generated content, some are redirects to permies threads: I'm looking at one for the permaculture orchard DVD. Someone made that banner and provided it to the mods to go into rotation, as part of the advertising program. Those are the ones I'm talking about. Just a stack of permies.com specific sponsor banners with the embedded links, all on one page to scroll through for the wee dark hours.
