What has happened?

Anyone hating the left hand side Magazine Ad/Trailers?

Is there any way to turn it off? Because it's really making forum viewing distracting and aligned right off where I like it. It was fine on wednesday iirc.

I don't mind it being above the forums but having it constantly in my views is mind aching!

I tried looking for options but seriously, I'm struggling these days with all the flashing menu buttons and peeling page and left hand menus and convoluted USER CP.

Re: What has happened?

Direct link to the thread we have all been talking about this in.

http://forums.gamegrin.com/showthread.php?t=39933

Not much has been changed cloud. There were complaints from people saying that the adverts at the top were too intrusive and people hated scrolling down. So we went back to the drawing board and sorted it by putting the links on the left hand side. The corner thing is too attract people to the magazine which i reckon does it very well. At the moment there is no way of turning them off in the CP but this maybe introduced later for registered users. At the end of the day this is what we are trying to promote and there is probably not a lot of people that know about the Magazine if they have found the forums via a google link.

Thought the ad thing was sorted with the horizontal ads that were introduced? they were ok and not to intrusive?

Re: What has happened?

people didn't like the idea of scrolling down
we have now removed that problem (which was discussed in that post at the time what we had planned)

Re: What has happened?

But it's more intrusive now..
Also people scroll down in forum threads anyway unless you have like um, 1 post a page?

Oh well
