    honestly, I don't mind ads in a top or side banner, or whatever. I know they serve a purpose and need to exist. But when they break the flow of content, it becomes a usability issue.

    I completely agree, Traq. Having ads isn't a problem as long as they don't interrupt the content. I can happily ignore them, but when they're in different places on different pages, they seem to "jump around" as I browse through the pages. When they're all in one place, they don't bother me at all.
    I feel the same way about the main page. The side panels load first and they're not useful to those of us who spend a lot of time on the forums and don't need those links. For anyone else, they'd be just as useful on the right, not bumping the rest of the page off to the side of the screen.
    But generally I'm still happy with the new colors.

    Sometimes I see the ads after the first post and sometimes I do not see them at all.
