    Yes, it is annoying. Far more than those silly bots. You have to keep centering it each time you change a page.

        are you saying that the Ad doesn't appear on both sides of the forum? If so, it's obviously platform dependent. No problem on my Mac in either Firefox or Safari.

        It we're talking IE on a PC, which I think is still the largest single group, then we def. have a problem.

        Specifics plz.

          GH.....I use IE....and I have about one inch on the right side....street images.....and about 4 or 5 inches on the left...of street images.

          I have no problem seeing all of the T&FN page!!

            I'm using Chrome...and it has about 3" of street on the left side with 1" on the right. And...internet explorer has an identical look (3" on left, 1" on right)

              I use Chrome. I am at my desktop right now and the board is exactly in the middle, the runner on the right.

                gh I am on a Mac with Safari and the ad is taking up 1/3 of the left of my screen, making the board off-center. It does appear on the right as well, but smaller, and I have to scroll to see it. This is new since this morning and pretty annoying.

                  well that's certainly not answer I wanted to hear; if it's not platform-specific, what is it? (mine remains just fine)

                  OS 10.7.5
                  Safari 6.0.2?

                    Using IE, 4" street scene on left, 1" runner on right, have to scroll down and center every click.
                    Enlarging to 125% helped but did not eliminate annoying problem.

                        d'oh! now i see why I'm not having problems. I've got my monster 27-inch screen flowing in all its glory, so I have all the width on the planet.

                          Latest Firefox; centered but if I make the size larger it gets asymmetric; narrow on the right. Maybe the people might try doing Control -, to zoom out. [or View/Zoom....]. I do have a large screen [it would list as a 23" but is 19" wide, 1680 x 1050 for the Display, Default Size (Small)]

                            Safari 5.1.7

                            So that could explain the difference between us.

                              I also have a 27 inch screen and it is crazy. Every time you click on something it shifts it all right. I find it so annoying that the only ones left here will be the bots.

                                Sorry but that doesn't work at all. Yes, it is centered at a screen font that is so small I can barely see it. Zoom in and it all shifts right. This only started a few hours ago. Is it this ad doing it?
