The Gator Nation Faithful

Harness the purchasing power of Gator Tailgaters!

Every single gameday, over a hundred thousand Gator faithful make their way to Gainesville, Florida to participate in the art of tailgating and watching the Gators. Gator Tailgaters are fanatics about both Gator sports and the art of tailgating.

These Gator Tailgaters are no bums either! Many head halfway across the state to take part in the festivities. Most are college graduates and most will spend much of the day tailgating before the big game.

Through GatorTailgating.com, there are several different ways to advertise.

Animation Guidelines and Restrictions
Appearance No “Gaudy” or distracting ads. We prefer ads that theme into the site well (orange & blue)Borders are allowed
Length 15 seconds
Looping Leaderboard Only
CPU Usage If a Flash file contains heavy amounts of mathematical computation for elements such as animation, loops, or timers, it will require a much greater percentage of CPU usage. As a result, the Flash file is forced to compete with other Flash files and other applications for CPU usage, which causes all Flash elements on the page to slow down significantly.

Gator Tailgating reserves the right to reject any advertisement for any reason, including heavy CPU usage.
Framerate (Flash) 12fps
clickTag Info (Flash)

For ActionScript 2.0, attach the following code to the instance of your button. This is the recommended method. This code is case sensitive.

on (release) {
if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
getURL(_root.clickTAG, "_blank");
}
}

For ActionScript 3.0, you will need to create an action layer above the button where code will reside. The ActionScript for the button in your Flash file should look like this, except myButton needs to be the instance name of the button object. This code is case sensitive.

myButton.addEventListener(
MouseEvent.CLICK,
function():void
{
if (root.loaderInfo.parameters.clickTAG.substr(0,5)=="http:")
{
navigateToURL(new URLRequest(root.loaderInfo.parameters.clickTAG), "_blank");
}
}
);
