Default Banner ad blocking page

Anyone else notice the past few days that the larger ads are in the foreground and blocking parts of the page ? Currently there is a large ad for A Main Hobby and it's in the top right of the page covering up half of the RCU header,

I second that, Brian.

The page I'm writing from here has that big A Main Hobby panel in the right top of the page, and it obscures the 'Sign Out" button next to the
Home / Forums / Buy And Sell / User Reviews / Magazine / RC Community / Advertisers bar. I always sign out using that Sign Out button, guess I'll look for another signout button.

If it has to be somewhere ,put it in the empty space below the user bar to the left of the other buttons.

That's where it was . Then it shifted to the right a bit. Now it's all the way up in the right corner.
Maybe the rubber band broke?

When I click on the Hobby King banner a page comes up that says "Page no longer available " If that banner is no good anymore ,why don't they delete it and put the A Main Hobbies banner down there ?
On another site,Model Gas Boats,there used to be a blue Twitter bird in a spot where it covered something and after a few of us complained the owner of the site moved it.Wasn't a hard thing to do and it got done.

Except for an occasional blip, it was up all last week too -- if you see the site down for an extended period, feel free to contact me at paul (dot) obrien (at) internetbrands (dotcom).

Tech is still working on the ad -- I hope they can shrink it horizontally soon!

OK.
As far as the ad, the size is correct and hasn't changed. What has changed is it's position. All they need to do is put it back in it's original position which is in that big white area that is directly to the left of the " faq", "new posts". "my forums" buttons and below the "home" ."forums" ,"buy&sell" , "user review" buttons on the rcu header.

The top right of the RCU banner is where the A-Main ad belongs. We're working to tweak it so that it fits better and does not block buttons.

The A Main banner has changed and I think it 's gotten bigger.If they could make it so we could click on and drag it somewhere else and it would stay there,it wouldn't be such an inconvience. I 'd drag it to the bottom of the page and leave it there forever.

If that A Main banner has to be there,why not put an X box on the bottom of it so some of us that are not interested in buying from them can delete it and use the RCU user buttons that it's covering,instead of shoving it down our throats.You would think that if the site's user and member capabilities are affected, that something would be done.

A Main must be writing a big fat check!

It would be a 30-60min fix for me to properly move it to the open white area under the "Home" button and I'm not a work-a-day internet tech . Should be a 5-10min fix for someone who does it every day and it's been an ongoing issue for 2 months !
The page doesn't need a new banner JUST MOVE THE AD all the way to the left and down a little!

I assure you, while it's taking longer than it ought, the issues surrounding this banner and the RCU permanent header are more complex than that. Hold tight, change is coming.

Besides the banner, is there something broken that you've brought to our attention?
