Ads on Original Trilogy

It’s a trial run by Jay to see if they generate some revenue to offset the costs of running the forum. He has been shouldering that burden alone for many years now.

Just some feedback on the ads banner - I’ve lost count of the amount of times the home page has loaded and I’ve gone to click on ‘General Star Wars Discussion’ on both the PC and my phone, only for the ad banner to pop into existence right in the same spot (pushing everything else down) a split second before I click/touch the forum link, taking me to whatever page the advert is linked to.

Very annoying, is there anyway to preset the space it needs so the page doesn’t shift down when the banner loads in? Or place it somewhere else where it won’t have this affect? I understand it’s importance in helping offset the costs of hosting OT.com but it’s getting pretty old quite quickly…

Just happened again to me for the nth time what I described above. Is there any comment from the mods or Jay as to whether there is any alternative to the current functionality? I’d gladly make a $10 donation to the site to see this changed 😛

Thanks for the update Jay. I’ve got no issues myself with the ads and understand their purpose, it’s just when they get in the way of enjoying the site that I decided I had to post some feedback on their current implementation.
