Try Oracle Cloud, indeed?
You know what would be a great advertisement for Oracle Cloud and all its features, such as Engaging Customers and Collaboration and its ease of use and implementation - The Simplicity Of The Cloud, if you like?
Running these forums on it instead of spamming them.

Well. I didn't think my first post as community manager would be this one. :)
I'm still learning this infrastructure (and prepping to massively upgrade it, announcements coming shortly) and wasn't aware of how exactly those banners were going to be placed.We have heard about The Big Forum Upgrade - and looking forward to it. (assuming you are talking about the new OTN forum infrastructure?)
By comparison, on Java.net (the other site I manage), it's on the upper right of the home page which makes a little more sense to me.What the community appreciates the most if, instead of a banner or sticky posting, the relevant staff participate in answering questions, explaining basics, providing links to documentation and support notes, and so on. That has a far more meaningful impact than a sticky posting (usually reserved for dealing with forum FAQ and rules) that is basically advertising. It works very well - the Oracle Linux forum especially comes to mind as one I often frequent and have read and received clear answers from Oracle staff that are knowledgeable and passionate about their product.
Again, apologies and a promise to do it differently next time, if it needs to be done.Really appreciate the time taken for responding and having an open mind of how to deal with this in future. Thanks.
