I don't even have to touch the stupid thing for it to expand on my browser (Firefox 1.0.7), and even if it's not expanded, it blocks me from being able to use the menus at the top of the page. I can't get into my GeekMail, my profile, etc., etc., thanks to the ad.

Bleah.

Amen. I had to adblock it to get anywhere.

Of course one way to get rid of it if you are a BGG "$upporter" is to exercise your option to block ads.

I encourage everyone to sign on for the few buck$ to be a supporter but I have to say I haven't (until now) excercised the "ad block" option since I kinda like to see whats for sale, whats new, etcetera (although I will never buy Rocketville!).

Now I've got Rocketville and all others blocked but I'd bet the advertisers would rather I didn't feel obligated to do that

Can you upgrade to 1.5 and see if you are still having the same problem?

I have Firefox 1.5.0.1 on Windows XP Pro and encountered the same thing. The ad was not expanded anymore but I could not type in the search field. I finally had to resort to refreshing the page and finally got it to work.

It's driving me absolutely batty, as well. I realize ad revenue is important, but it's really destroying the functionality of the site. I don't think it's too much to require than an ad not harm your site.

[Edit: in fact it's been so frustrating that at this point I now associate that game with frustration and will probably not even look closer at it to see if it's any good! Their advertising has backfired.]
