As per subject, can you move them to the right side of the screen? I can't even log out because the video ads covers the log out button.

 

I have 1024x768 screens both at home and work and the video ad box makes geekzone a poor experience. I'm not against the ads themselves, just the placement doesn't seem very well thought out.

Is this Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP?

 

If it is, sorry, can't do much - that box should be way below that position and I guess the browser is just not doing it right.

Is the video meant to be somewhere else on the page? They aren't showing up anywhere now.

The ads (not all videos, most of the times just static images) should be like this:

 

 

On a window smaller than 1100 pixels the CSS will automatically hide that space but... it seems the video ad (and only the video ad) shows on a different overlay and since the box is hidden the browser puts it on the top corner. The problem with your browser happens exactly because I was being nice and hiding the ad...

 

Obviously will have to look at other more permanent solution.

Subscribe. Then you don't see any ads at all. 

 

Worth every penny.

I Probably should get around to resubscribing.

This is a different thing - this is when people post long URLs and the browser don't correctly wrap them. If people report a post like this a mod fix it pretty quickly.

Great!

I wondered why that happened on some pages but not others, even in the same thread. Really frustrating on my phone though, as it won't even resize or reposition on swiping.

Particularly bad whjen a long unbreakable URL is inside a quote. Trust me, I tried lots of things and tricks.

Cheap option, subscribe to get rid of them.

 

More expensive option, upgrade.

Yeap, can't be expected to support a 15 year old OS and old hardware forever.
