Seriously, though, we should put up the contest form before throwing up the banner ad.  I can do this.

The contest form itself will hopefully be up by Nov. 1 but it's going to be interesting since I only heard about it this morning at 9am.
We should probably only show these if the user is browsing in en-US. Since they're only in English. And stuff.

You don't need to fill out the form to get started, only to submit your final entry.  The deadline is going to be December 31st at midnight.  We've launched the promotional campaign already and the site is live. No dependency on getting the banners on AMO.

Here is my suggestion, let's use only the 468x60 for now...the other seems too large for the design of the site.

Front page (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/)
Category pages (e.g. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:1/cat:1)
Browser by category (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:1)

Also, I think we might have a problem with two Firefox logos appearing but let's see what it looks like.

v1, contest banners on requested pages

Didn't have to use the small one, so please direct if I am not placing where it should be.

r=fligtar on code... as far as ui-r, the banner doesn't really go with the site at all and makes everything look pretty ugly.

And we're not displaying it in the Developer Control panel, the one part of the site that is for developers.

Looks fine to me.

I agree with comment #16.  The banner doesn't really go with the site's theme at all and looks really out of place.

I agree with Basil, it looks fine and we need to get this info out to AMO site visitors.

i agree, except s/site visitors/developers/ -- primary audience and target are add-ons developers.  once we have winners, then a general audience promo would make sense.
