would like everyones thoughts.....the side bar....
 
How do you feel about it? Does it bug you? It bugs me a little because in Firefox, the sidebar doesn't load as fast as the rest of the page, so the page jumps once it does load.... I may have to do away with it for various reasons....but, to keep the site running, I would need to move the sponsored links to a new section of the site. I'm sure everyone has noticed the new placement of sponsored links in the FSOT forums, I'm considering doing something similar in all the forums...the chit chat forums, only have sponsored links at the very bottom of the thread, not in the middle or above, does this sound too annoying? lol They gotta go somewhere, but if I can, I'd like to avoid annoying everyone :giggle:

That doesn't sound too annoying to me. :thumbsup:

Having them at the bottom sounds fine. They are bugging the heck out of me how they are in the middle of the thread in FSOT :giggle: The side bar doesn't bother me at all.

I use firrefox do and don't notice a problem. I'm getting used to them now lol.

I use Firefox too (on a Mac) and haven't noticed a load time difference in the side bars. I don't mind them there at all, FWIW :)

I don't mind them, I don't even notice them on the side because of how I have the resolution on my computer. I had to look over to see what you were talking about.

Well, for other reasons, I'll need to remove the sidebar anyway. So I need to find a place to stick the sponsored links where they will be effective, but not too intrusive...

I think I'll just try it out for a while, add them to the bottom of the threads. Hopefully they won't be too intrusive there :)

Re: would like everyones thoughts.....the side bar....
 
Thought I'd mention...even though I'll probably try it out, I'm still very interested in hearing what members would like :)

The bottom would be good-- I notice the jump in Foxfire, nothing big but it jumps back up when it's done loading.

Ok, I did it....you can see it just above the quick reply, just below the last thread.....

eta: disabled right column...will take some tweaking to get it to look right...

That's not bad at all. It makes the screen seem bigger lol.

Yeah I like it like this! :)

much better! i didn't like it in the middle of the thread. it made me think that it was the end of the thread.

MamaJo 09-27-2006 09:25 AM

Re: would like everyones thoughts.....the side bar....
 
Its still in the middle of the thread in FSOT, just not in the chit chat area.....I think it would be a LOT more distracting in forum we go to for enjoyment. For the free FSOT (to avoid ebay fees lol) I figure, an ad after a listing isn't too bad right? lol

Looks good :) I don't mind them in the thread either!

I like it, kinda opens everything up and makes the screen look bigger.

Re: would like everyones thoughts.....the side bar....
 
To be honest, I havent really noticed anything annoying yet.. LOL! I noticed ads in the threads, but it doesnt bother me at all..

They look fine at the bottom.

Goes to show how much time I've been spending at DS for the past few weeks... I honestly haven't noticed too much. But I did notice the adds in the middle of the thread (when they were there) and they do annoy the bejezus out of me. I know it's stupid, but it's because it breaks my train of thought when I'm reading a thread.

Thanks for all your hard work Mamajo!!! :hugegrin: :thumbsup:

But thats why its only in the middle of a FSOT threads only....not a whole of content reading going on :mrgreen: The only real important thread is the first one....

I like them okay at the bottom or side. The middle really is annoying! Looks fine in here though.

None of it bothers me (I guess it takes a lot to bug me LOL!!!) I'm happy to see some advertisements in exchange to keep the forum free for users--thanks, Mamajo!!!! :goodvibes:
