That damn ad banner is in my way

[EDIT: I must be blind. I noticed there are already a bunch of complaints about this merged into a single thread, and I can't delete this one. Feel free to merge this or just kill it outright]

I haven't been here in a while (I'm on a slow connection right now, which sucks), and I really hate to make my first return post a complaint, but this is something that is seriously impeding the sites usefulness to me.

I'm talking about that ad banner hanging above the forums. Every time I try to click on 'Search', the little drop down box is caught right beneath that damn ad, and can't be used. I know I can't be the only one with this problem, and I know it's been happening for a while now. If I were the type who lacked all faith in my fellow human beings (especialy on the internet), I'd almost suspect that it was an intentional suckers move to get people to click that there banner. But no, I know this site is too quality for such cheap tactics, and will give GHDpro the benefit of the doubt.

The thing is, I understand that to run a high traffic free site you need ads, and that's not my complaint, nor is it anywhere near my problem. My problem is that there's a freaking ad directly preventing me from accessing a regular part of the site.

I'd click on it to get rid of it if that's what it took, I really don't mind. They can have my free click, and the webhost can get a donation of $0.05 to help the cause. But it really doesn't give you that option.

My apologies if this has been addressed previously. I would have done a search, but... well, you know.

Oh how I figured I was alone, oh well. I just give up, click the catagory I want to search and use the search option from there, takes a few more seconds, but it works.

The ad banner also blocks the upper part of quick links section.

And this makes us a grand total of 12 merged threads! I'll just make it a sticky as people cant use the search function before they read this thread.

its not that kind of pop up, actually its not a pop up at all! its the add, and it gets really annoying, I remember that. The best solution is to change styles, they appear at the botton left of the page, in the vBulletin style the add is shown above everything, in the vBulletin alternative it can be seen first the banner of the animesuki forums, and then the add. The change is a bit difficult at first, but Ive grown very fond of this skin ^_^

Is there anyway to make the vBulletin style the default? that way people wont get confused, especially if they are newbies, I would like to simply get rid of the animesuki style, but most people like it I suppose. Another definitive solution is to change the animesuki style completly (I dont know if you can do that or if you are willing to do that, Im not realy sure if it would imply a hack on the vBulletin code, after all Ive seen a lot of different skins in several forums that use vBulletin)

Actually I prefer the Animesuki style although i use the alternative so the ads are above the quick links...so i never get the "search covered by ad" problem
