i understand the need for google ads. money money money. but could you work on the website layout so that the board actually fits on the screen?

It fits on my screen fine. Are you guys missing a lot of content?

It funny, last night when I opened this site, the page was the correct size. Today when I open the site, the page needs to be adjusted by the bottom bar about 3/4 of inch. It's not a major bid deal, just a slight annoyance. smile.gif

That ads were better in the top of the page ...

I'm with you Ramon, I don't like them on the left either.

Nobody noticed them really when they were on the top. I for one would rather see them on the left than to have to pay to become a member here. just my $.02.

please change them back to the top or whereever they were before- i didnt realize they were there until now- or at least change the layout so everything isnt pushed to the right

That's the point AzRocks - they want you to notice the ads.
Bevnet is a fine company, and they aren't making any money off this board. I'll gladly endure any advertisements in order to be able to keep reading and posting here for free.
It's just going to take a little getting used to. And people will have to post photos that aren't as wide as before.

I hate the new ad locations but was not going to say anything because this is free to us.

A lot of interesting (and wrong) assumptions have been made in this thread.
Sorry if people don't like them, but as someone did correctly point out we're trying to increase clicks -- so far it seems to be working.
This site takes a lot of time & money to run and we have never even considered charging a fee for access to the site and/or message board. We appreciate your understanding of our decision re: the ads.

For anyone who has it so that they can't see the whole page without scrolling over, try changing your screen's resolution to one notch higher(but make sure it's not a widescreen resolution if you don't have a wide screen monitor).
You do this by right clicking on your desktop, going to properties, and going to the settings tab.

Remember to take your favorites screen off. It makes it easier to read.
Most people don't realize the high costs of keeping "free" sites online. Nothing is free to the website owner.
