Mine is only wide on the left and it does the job it's designed to do. It made me look at it, although, in annoyance. :(

Yeah--it's horrible. I have to slide to the right every time I change a screen. A big pain.

that's because it was in Current Events, not here.

Sorry, but it's a necessary evil you're going to have to put up with for a day or so. Needless to say, it's being worked on.

It's fine on my desktop, the screen has a lot of real estate. The problem is on my lap top. The advertisers are clearly assuming that we all have the same screen size that they have.

At least now, when you scroll down just a big, the street scene disappears and you just have a black border. That isn't so distracting.

Is it just me, or has the ad morphed again? I'm seeing it on all four sides of the forum now and the whole page ad appears as it's loading.

Two sides and a thin band at the top for me, and the whole page ad as the message board is loading. But it's a cool photo/ad.

The full ad seems to make the page load more slowly, it seems. There is useful info on the ad -- 2013 Boston Marathon Live//Click for live stream 9am ET.
