Chad - please fix the fact that content/articles on the right side are currently useless - clicking on them opens them in that side in a non-scrollable pane, so we can't read the articles - this is bad for any advertisers hoping for page counts on those articles.

Please make those open into a new page as the current forum works. Otherwise, people will completely ignore these articles and topics.
Mac OSX 10.6.6 running Safari 5.0.3
iPhone 3GS running 4.2.1 - the site is still very screwed up for reading on iphone - text is only taking up half the screen.

Looks like an iframe Fail right now... at least it made it to the left side finally... If you want to navigate around in it you can just center click on your mouse.... not sure what that is for you mac people.

[Fixed]

Can we make that ad/jump page/news thing on the side of the page (left or right) like half or a third the width that it is right now? That way it will more closely match the width of the old forums? and give more usable space for the actual forums?

Nope. Ads are that width. I get the impression a lot of users have CRT or non-widescreen monitors.

I don't think it's so much non-widescreen monitors, as the simple fact that with the ads being so wide, as well as the avatar and person's information being so large, that the actual content is only about half of the screen.

On a 13" Macbook, I can see everything without scrolling, but the posts are very narrow. And there appears to be a lot of wasted space on either side of the ads.

 I have a wide screen monitor. And the screen usage sucks on both my laptop, my wife's laptop, and my widescreen desktop at work. And reading on the iPhone, almost half the screen is taken up with the add space = suck.
 
 Do this, load up this forum in one tab, and load up the old forum in another tab. Switch between the two tabs and you'll see that 1) the adds themselves are about twice as wide as on the old forum, and 2) the margins of background space around the adds are about 10 times as thick. This all makes the forums themselves look like they are on a 4:3 screen. Very odd when using a widescreen monitor. I can't imagine what they are like on an old school 4:3 CRT--probably less than half the screen is usable without scrolling to the left and right just to read the forums.

Here's a screen shot from my iPhone. Notice all that useless space on the left margin? and once you scroll down past the adds, is completely useless.

You can click the little Minus button next to the date and it'll collapse that box.

The left side on FUD is filled with ads and content pulls. We can add as much stuff over there as we need :) We'll put it to use.

thanks for moving the ads to the left. There's still a problem on iPhones.

On the responses that are near the left-hand ads, they are chopped off on the left (including member names) but appear to be wrapping.

If you go down past where the ad copy ends, then it returns to normal, albeit with a wide swath of space unused. With the giant space for user information and the giant space for ads, anyone viewing on anything smaller than a 27" monitor (ie most people on gigs) will be screwed.

Please fix.
