Possible to embed links on Sponsors Page?

I often find myself needing to go to DVInfo sponsors' sites but often the ads aren't displaying in the forum pages and don't, no matter how many times I pound the Refresh button. Would it be possible to embed links to sponsors' sites with your Affiliate ID number in them on the "Our Sponsors" page, so the site gets credit each time we go to your sponsors? Right now it's just a list of names with no links at all, much less your ID.

Just a thought...

Whilst on the subject.................

Can you get the Sponsors to embed links on their web sites to take (potential) customers to DVinfo?

The more those people using the sponsors sites get pointed to DVinfo, the more proof they're going to have that the sponsor concerned is on the up and up, the more likely they are to buy from that sponsor.

Given that the people buying or potentialy buying from any particular sponsor must be quite a super set over and above those current members or lurkers on DVinfo, it must be a pretty large pool of potential members or lurkers who don't even know DVinfo exists, and as it stands, they ain't going to find out from the Sponsors (I qualify that owing to never having visited the vast majority of Sponsors sites, due, in large part, to ongoing poverty).

Sort of "you scratch my back.................." type of thing.

The case for the prosecution rests on the number of posts I've read here on whether (insert sponsors name here) is kosher (er, sorry!) and the number of hits those posts get.

Just a thought.
