Ad Sandwich

Every so often on the main site, the advertisement on the right seems to take over the page, mashing the rest of the page into an annoying mess. It's obvious I'm not a master with words, so here's a screenshot of the problem in action.
It isn't really that big of a deal, but it is annoying, so I may as well bring some attention to it.

    Yes, this has been happening for some time. Only it's been doing it a lot more frequently lately. We're going to get it fixified as soon as possible.

    1) While it won't help with RPGamer's crappy ad setup, you should really go try Firefox.

    2) Why in God's green earth are you looking at Kingdom Hearts 2 info?

    Gay because it likes to partake in sexual relations with other, same-sex ads?

    I just wanted to mention that I came across the problem when I was checking out the Kingdom Hearts II media gallery. ?It is very annoying when the ad banner compresses all the site content.

    So here's an update. We can't do anything about this. I know, this problem annoys the hell out of me too. The only thing that we can do about it is complain to Gorilla Nation and hope that they fix this.

    I find refreshing the page remedies the situation rather nicely. Yeah it's a pain, but it's only 10 seconds out of your life that you're not going to miss. tounge.gif

    I'm sort of glad to know I'm not the only one encountering this problem. I'd laugh if GN said "But, we HAVE to do this! No one is clicking on our ads, so we need to grab people attention somehow!"

    I'm going to pretend this thread is about all sorts of ad questions, and just ask this one here: Does RPGamer get more mad cash if I actually click the Shadow Hearts Covenant uber-ad? If it helps, I figured I might as well click it each time rather than clicking the link to skip it. Either way, I'm clicking stuff.
