    The ads are now appearing on the left side.
    Much prefer the right side as before...

    I actually like the left side now that I see it. This was done so the ads don't interfere with the reply window. The smilies were getting lost under the ads.

    Yes, but now one has to constantly scroll to the right to read an entire post...

    Edit:
    I could increase the monitor resolution to fix it; would just have to squint a bit harder...

    I'd suggest you bump up your monitor/display resolution a bit.

    I wouldn't want them on the top because then you have to scroll down from them to get to postings every single time you visit a page.

    I can barely read the screen now, so bumping up the resolution isn't practical. My screen is far too small (a little net book) and I have to scroll everything right before I can read it... frustrating...

    One or the other for sure. Websites aren't typically designed around compact mobile devices. Personally, a laptop is as mobile and compact as I ever want to go. Perhaps an iPad, but there comes a point in size and compactness that sends my frustration over the top. I can only last about 10 minutes using my wife's iPhone when we travel.

    Speaking of frustration, should you leave it this way I would pay (not sure how much) to have a user-selectable option to switch it back to the right where it belongs. A little javascript and bada bing, it's done.

    I'd like to see some screen shots from those of you complaining about them being on the left.

    Here's how my desktop looks:

    Here is what I see on my 19" screen, with my browser not fully maximized...
    (P.S. Barry looks like you better clean out your inbox. lol)


    As i said before, my biggest issue with it is that the contents won't RESIZE when I shrink the window. If I make my browser window any smaller i then have to scroll left and right to read all posts because they get cut off. This doesn't happen on any other websites.

    Wait, what?! What's with the ugly blue "Post Reply" and "Quote" icon? They should look like the one on my screen shot. Black baby! Have they always looked like that?

    In box, that's another issue! 552 still unread emails! Emails of every post to the forum. I get one day behind and that's what happens.

    I'll reconsider the ad placement if it's causing a lot of problems for members. Would still like to see a few more screen shots.

    I see we both like green background!

    I often visit the forum via my Droid...

    For me, having the ads on the left is better.

    Hmmm, must be a PC/Mac thing. I'll have to look into it. Perhaps those images need to be configured differently for PC's to recognize them. I assume your on a PC?
