It has been possible to post newspaper graphical advertisements for quite a while now. When you have a look at them (http://www.torn.com/messageinc2.php?action=viewall) it is clear that most ads are either related to a company, or IRC or something. And, there is the occassional ad for faction recruitment.

But all these ads lead to the profile of the one posting the ad. That's nice when you are into trading, but if you have a company, you want people to reach the application page. Same with factions.

So why not have a small menu when you put a graphical advertisement up, allowing you to chose where the image will link to? A menu, with a multiple choice answer, because you don't want to give people free reign, as this will increase the workload of mods enormously (and besides, you're not allowed to advertise for "outside of torn" anyway.

The menu

"Where do you want your graphical advertisement to lead to?"
1) My profile (default)
2) My faction application page
3) My company application page

Of course, option 2 would only be visible if you are in a faction, and have rights to manage applications, and option 3 would only be visible to directors.

I thought you could change where it leads to already but maybe I'm wrong. R+ anyway

Darn, you are right. I wonder how I could have missed that for so long...
