READ THIS FIRST--BEFORE CREATING A BANNER YOU MUST FOLLOW EACH ONE OF THESE STEPS:
1. Create an ANONYMOUS user name and password (FREE!) by clicking on "Register Here" at the top right corner or log in using your user name and password if you previously registered. After logging in you may return to this page by clicking on the Ad Rates link above or on the black rectangle above the name of the person you are targeting.
You cannot create a banner unless you are logged-in.
2. You must first search for the person you want to target.
PLEASE TRIPLE-CHECK YOUR SPELLING of the last name.
Misspelled last names will result in a bad search and wasted money because you will target the wrong judge or candidate.
You must use the lookup a judge or rate a candidate search box in the left navigation area of the site to search for the name of the judge or candidate you are targeting. If the person you are targeting is listed, click his/her name. After you click on his/her name find the black rectangle above his/her name and click on it. Clicking on the black rectangle will return you to this banner upload page again. You may then continue with the remaining steps listed here.
3. If the person you want to target is not listed, you must add that person's name to the website by following the instructions that will appear after your search.
4. After you add the new judge/candidate to the site, you must click on the top black rectangle above his/her name to return to this banner upload page and create your banner.
5.UPLOADING IMAGES: Your images must be less than 1mb. Larger images will not upload. Before uploading any image, please reduce its size. You may use this FREE online tool to reduce a GIF image or a JPEG image:
After your image is reduced, you must save the image to your desktop so that you may have it saved for upload. Read the instructions at www.picresize.com carefully.
You may also use the FREE online service linked below to help you design a fancier banner. Use this service to completely create your banner, then save the whole banner as a JPEG image on your desktop. WARNING: You must reduce the size of the banner/JPEG to less than 1mb so that the whole banner can be uploaded as an image to our banner maker.
There is a section at www.canva.com named "Ads" where sample banner sizes are available.
6.OPTIONAL (FOR CANDIDATES ONLY): RobeProbe encourages judicial candidates to upload their election banners inside the rating pages of their rival incumbents! Or upload a banner telling voters why the incumbent should not be re-elected.
NOTE: FAILURE TO FOLLOW EACH OF THESE STEPS WILL RESULT IN YOUR BANNER NOT BEING SAVED
