Not really. The way it is randomized is through the mysql query that pulls up all competing logos rather than any randomizing php code. Even then, to make sure it is the same for a particular user each time, the random sequence of logo IDs would have to be stored somewhere, per user... mostly likely the DB. Way too much work to be worth it imo.

Don't have to store them, just seed the PRNG with something user-specific, like the userid. This of course only works if the list of logos is constant (but then, so does any stored order).

Of course, I don't see the point of doing that, either.

Ah, that certainly is easier. I forgot you could set a seed for rand(). Anyways... this is starting to get a little off topic. >_>

The key, of course, is to go for the ones that would be the most difficult for bad banner-makers to deal with.
