Trying to search stuff thru the cata quick link drop down. The advertisment covers most of the drop down. Is there a way to block the adds? Or at least a fix to not being blocked by them?
Adblock is my bff.
Moved to Suggestions and Feedback.
I'll keep it up as it does need to be fixed if this is happening for everyone. Ads are not here to annoy everyone, they're also important for the site, so it's not a good idea if everyone starts using ad-blockers
Using Google Chrome alone should be enough to keep the ads their appropriate sizes, meaning you won't need to block them. Just like commercials, they are a necessary evil for funding.
Yes, ads are necessary to maintain the site and pay for hosting and so on. Running such a large site means there's lots of costs associated with hosting, maintenance, etc.
I know there was some annoying zindex bug with the dropdown menu, but I thought that had been fixed -- can you post a screenshot if it's still happening, or let me know browser/version?
The advertisement is a video .swf (flash) which covers up the entire top navigation menu. I am using IE7 (its a work computer SHH!!).
I sent in screen shots to Boub and reported the issue.
bugs me too, it's why I'm glad some of the adds have a little countdown so you don't accidentally move your mouse too close to them and WHAM they fill the screen with crap.
The issue is still occurring as of today, but I wanted to share the screen shot on the forum here as well as having emailed Boub already.

It would be fine if the middle bar would go away once the video stops... however it just sits and blocks the entire chunk of the website. I am unable to link directly to the board at this time, so link above is segmented out.
Well same issue at home as I had at work. The ads under the Cata drop down box cover the drop down. Like, right now I cannot look into the archaeology because it's being covered by Salt the movie...
As far as taking a SS, I hit print svreen and I get nothing, unless I am in wow, then I get more dwarf a$$ pics.
Perhaps it is just with certain ads. The Tron ad was just up and it worked just fine. I'll ad Salt to the ad report sticky if it's not there yet.
The best adds are the ones that expand when you mouseover. Makes for much fun when you are clicking through your open tabs and then try and click on one of the latest post things.
