Advertisement cause size problems

Post by BIGMAN131307 »

The new Sapphire ad is causing the forum to squeeze to one side.

Is there anyway you can fix that?

squished page = annoying.

i've got a solid 3 inches of blue background of totally useless space on the right. sometimes nothing loads on the top as well, giving a giant useless blue space up there too.

running at 1280x1024 on dual 19 inch monitors, FWIW.

Hey guys,

Thanks for pointing out the squished page size. This seemed to be an issue isolated to IE, which I believe I have now fixed.

Enjoy!

:? As of right now 4AM EST

The forums are centered with at least 4 inches of blue background on both sides. That is much better than having the forums squished to one side.

Browsers: SeaMonkey & Fire Fox

Problem seems solved to me. :)

I'm back to using IE9. FireFox 6.1 pitched another fit on me yesterday. It seems that the squishiness of the forum has been resolved.. On my 23" widescreen there is about even amounts of blue space on either side.

A few things that need working on or (more working on) is:
1.) The ads within the forum space. Definately need a rethink on what size to place where.. for instance the large block ad at the bottom of the forum, leaves a lot of dead white space and seperates the "whos online" block from the rest of the forum.

2.) if items like preloaded avatars are going to be deleted from use (i.e. the folding avatars) there should be a bit of notice so that those who wish to remain using them have the opportunity to relocate them.

3.) I understand the need and use of a link back to the main site but why do we need 3?? seems a bit redundant to me.
