We listen carefully to our members and visitors feedback and try to do all we can to accommodate as best we can.

Advertising keeps our amazing website community alive and free. Without the ads, our site would die... it's that simple.

That said, we definitely want to balance out user-experience with the ads on the site. One thing we've noticed is that different ad sizes are load and reload onto the site. This has shown to cause "jumpiness" as the page moves, shimmies, and shakes up/down to accommodate the various ad sizes.

So, one of the things we're testing now is a fixed-size area for the ads. This means that sometimes there may be blank area between posts if an ad doesn't load and/or a small ad loads in place. The strong HOPE is that this will solve the "jumpy ads" problem.

Please play around the site and let us know how it looks and how it's working for you.

Thanks!

For the past half hour, the pages have been jumping all over, as usual. But interestingly, THIS thread/page stayed rock steady still. Maybe because it's too short? There is only one ad on the page.

Thank you, Nifty. It's nice to know this is being looked into. :)

There might always be some amount of "jumpy" as regular content (images, etc.) load... but it shouldn't be due to the ads, and shouldn't happen when the ads refresh. If it does, let me know.

This is 1,000% BETTER!!! Much, much better! I can deal with this, before you did the fixed size, the page jumped up and down so bad, it drove me nuttier that I already am! Thank you VERY much for finding a solution to this.
