On the subject of ads, is there a way to make the very top banner load simultaneously with the rest of the page? Every page I load appears like this for the first 4 to 7 seconds.
Then the rest of the page loads, and the threads all get bumped down 40% of the screen, like this.
So if I move to click on "Murdered out J Ski - 4 days only" in the first few seconds, I end up accidentally clicking on the top ad banner when the ads load. Guess I could view the page super zoomed out like the screencap below, but that's not ideal since NS is designed with a tall slender format, and the text is kinda difficult to read on a smaller laptop screen.
I know companies dislike side banners, but it sure would be nice if the top banner was placed somewhere else to give a little more screen space to the threads. Or at least load it at the same time as the rest of the page.
