    I am beginning to curse every time I go to TB now. If we could get the ad moved from the top then maybe it wouldn't affect our clicks. Am I the only one this is driving nuts?!?!

    I'd bet that's not likely.

    The top banner spot probably pays better than any other location.

    Are you talking about that jump down and up it’s been doing?

    yes, exactly. and yes, i don't think it's likely that they modify it. i'm sure having an ad right up there on top is bringing in tons of $'s. I'm just wondering if the owner of this site is interested in keeping this site usable/cool, or if $ is the top driver. I know i'd be interested in money if it were mine, but I really hate these delayed load ads. It's pretty easy in HTML to preload the ad images, but i've noticed a trend recently across the internet that is leaning towards delayed load. This allows you to accidentally click on the ad, which generates revenue for the site owner. So, business wise it is awesome. User wise, it is completely, totally, ultimately LAME.

    Let me know if it's better now. It's as simple as setting a minimum height in the <div> element, sorry I hadn't done this before but thanks for the suggestion!

    I never actually learned to play very well
    I’ve been noticing that too. It’s annoying because I tap on some thread and at that precise moment everything shifts position and I’ve opened the wrong thread.

    Hope it’s fixed now. :)
