    I'm experimenting with adding a sidebar to a number of pages that will appear on the right. It will contain useful things that most people never see because they don't go to the forum list page. Things like Birthdays, people online, etc. I'll probably be adding countdown clocks and some other items.

    At any rate, if you hate the sidebar (and I have no doubt some of you will), you can close it and open it with the button near the top of the page.

      Why are there ads on the screen shot?

      Terrible experiment. Can it be closed by default?

      It might be a good idea. I'd like to see it.

      Edit: Thanks, Ox, for your "anti-complacency" - it's much appreciated.

        I thought this was going to be a thread about an off topic discussion.

        But as a sidebar to the sidebar, God bless the man (or Ox) that tries to please all the personalities on this forum.

          I understand that taking 2 1/2 seconds to click that button can put a few people out, but I always appreciate your sacrifice.

                There's no button.....and I don't like the layout because it bunches up all the real content instead of just letting it spill out the entire width of the page.....If anything I'd leave the side margins but have someone do some cool design like maybe a stripper spinning around a pole or something...... .

                The button is there for me. Once you close the sidebar, it stays closed.

                  Thanks for the quick fix to close that annoying thing.

                        I have narrowed the bar, at least for now, to make it less cumbersome.
