Misplaced ads under the first post

First thing, I like the new styles. I have tried to used both adaptive and fluid to get used to them. I even posted in a thread how I didn't mind them at all.

However, after using them a while now, I have to go back to classic. The misplaced ads after the first post has become really bothersome and annoying. They break up the flow of the thread. And instead of drawing reader's attention to them, they do the opposite and annoy the reader. I can see that other people have similar opinions to my own.

The ads themselves are fine. In fact I like them. I often see an ad for a vendor who has something I had been interested in. And I know they help with the cost of running the site.

I understand the idea of spacing out the ads, but they do not belong in between posts in a thread. Please seriously consider moving them. Placed on a right sidebar perhaps.

One other consideration is a page dedicated to the banners/ads. I see there is already a page with a list of sponsors. But it would be nice to see a page with the banners/ads. I was looking for one that I had noticed too late as I was browsing pages. It took me over an hour of reloading pages to see it again. A page that had them would have been really helpful then.

Thank you.

Thanks for the input. Our current sponsor page shows all ads that are currently running on the site except for swf ads. After reading your post it might be a good idea to have those shown as well.

Actually, you were right. I somehow missed the little "click here to view all banners" part up top when I was looking through the sponsors. I apologize.

Still, please do consider moving the ads from in between posts in the threads.

I just want to post a thank you for deciding to move the ad out of the under the first post slot. I am once again enjoying the new style.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I like the ads. They sometimes show me new things I want to get. However, I want to point out that they sometimes do not show for me both at top and bottom, specially those at the bottom.

If anyone can advise as to get them to show all the time it would greatly appreciated.

Thank you
