It's black and white and shows a woman a child and a dog. But the image doesn't change and there's no text.So where do I buy my own women/child/dog? In black and white?
Sorry, missed some words there! It's a banner and MPU advert with just a picture, no text and no change in image!I clicked on it and see it's for Railway children, but it's not a very obvious advert!
Guess it's just me...
Looks like it
I assumed it was a "typical happy MN member" type of picture, like wall paper, or they couldn't sell the space
No one else sees this B&W ad of just 2 people and a dog that doesn't say what it's for?!?!Gee, I turn of Adblock on MN and MN only and start getting weird targeted ads!
I can see it! But it's pretty inoffensive (especially compared to the horrid nappy one) so I don't mind.
I don't think it's offensive. Well...it's a bit creepy...all black and white and mysterious.
It's also blurry...
It's a caption competition.
And it should be "Is MN advertising..." hope this helps....
Where does it say it's a caption competition?As MN is plural, as in the Net of Mum s, are is correct.So not only are you rude, you're wrong.
Pan, that is so bloody rude.
Caption competition was a joke? You really didn't see it in any other way? Wow.Pedantry Committee needed! I think as Mumsnet is only one 'net' then it should be 'is'. Open to clarification by the Pedants topic people. Mildly curious, not much more.
See, jokes are normally funny.
MN is a noun of multitude. In American English, we would say "MN is" as we would say "Manchester United is" or "the staff is". In British English, it's "MN are" and "the staff are".Hope that helps.
I can see it.I tend to skim past the adverts, so hadn't especially noticed it.But it is a bit strange - I don't want to click on it because I don't know what it wants from me.YANBU to think that adverts should say what they are advertising.
gosh, you're a tough gig today Tee! I do apologise if the humour didn't carry over t'internet. And thanks MT, it helps massively.
The words 'jokes' 'funny' and various members of MN rarely should be seen in the same sentence. And Tee is right, it's MN are in British English.
I think it could be a sort of lead-in advert. After a few days something else will appear as a follow up.
See, I'm an American and I knew it was are.Perhaps you should move the US, Pan?And that's my point exactly, Trill. I did click on it ::brave:: and it goes to MN's Railway Children page...so is the dog running away? The child? The mother?Very odd ad.
In the circs, Tee it's a very good idea.
I understood the caption competition joke.I don't have the advert though. I am being offered Pampers with a moving line.
at this. No, it's not a caption comp; it is a cock-up glitch in the ad file.We'll fix it as soon as we can. Thanks so much for flagging it.
I had a feeling it was Helen!
