Rice or buck would be smaller in the picture is what I'm saying but so far that is probably the best one for my needs.

If you have Photoshop you can take one of the pics with the size coal you want and use filters to get the flame blue.

I want to thank those that submitted images, I went with the one that Greg sumbmitted as it showed the blue flames the best with a good bakground IMO. Sorry Dallas but I just couldn't get yours to work the way I wanted. I might use it elsewhere on the forum somewhere though.

It looks good! ... gives the site some color.

Could it easily be replaced with a movie clip? ... let 'em dance.

You would use flash or even an anmiated .gif for that but the file sizes are way too big for a site like this plus I personally find stuff like that annoying. (yea I know the dodge ads are animated, but they are paying the bills)

Do you get paid based on the number of ad click-throughs?

The only thing I can say is if you're interested in the ad click it, otherwise don't. Google monitors the clicks for fraudulent activity (i.e. the same IP clicking numerous ads in short period of time) and will ban accounts where they see such activity. If you get banned from the program its permanent.

I going to do something with it, just not sure what. Greg sent me some bigger images so I'll be able to extend the fire even further. Once I do that I'll have to decide what to do with letters because it most definitely wont work as is with background as fire.
