To be honest, I'd simply remove that thing. I don't know what DJ thinks about it though.
What's your screen resolution ?

Well, I do use the "Show latest active topics"  link a lot.

It's available in the "forum" menu at the top. The link itself could be moved somewhere else otherwise.

It shows up perfectly for me in Chrome and Edge.

EDIT: nope, it's broken for me too, if I resize the window so that the page becomes narrower, the "Hello username" thing will overlap with the ad or the logo.

I would just remove it; perhaps to avoid the loss of the avatar (makes it more personal), put it on the top bar somehow?

haha now it runs into the CW banner. I'd remove it as you say because the link is available at the top

It's because his screen is 1280 pixels wide or smaller, I can reproduce it in chrome. Trying to fix it.

I've never finished a project, there is always a way to improve!
What's my calc's name? Convert $37 to decimal. Look up that element in the periodic table. Then take the abbreviation of that element and you have it!
Look! A slime!    <(^.^)>

This text was initially supposed to be directly inside the navigation to the right, just like Facebook and Twitter, with search to the left and the navigation itself in the middle (although for FB the search is in the middle and the avatar to the right). However, I never managed to figure out how to prevent the navigation from overlapping on the search box on smaller resolutions back in the days. Come to think of it, now that I know about Media queries, this is probably something I could achieve. The Go to recent posts link would be removed outright since we already have a New posts link easily reachable and the member approval link could be moved to "Moderate".

Also on mobile the navigation should probably be that one expandable icon you see on most sites, but I don't know how hard it would be to achieve on SMF.



That said, in the mockup above, using icons for profile/inbox might be preferable, though.

Well, our operation has been pretty successful so far. We're seeing interesting stuff from our members and at this rate so far, we'll be able to pay half of our hosting bill. I like this :D

Also, Canada and Europe aren't losing the game like the US and the rest of the world are...

I still wish that outbidding someone only decreased the chances of his ad being seen rather than nullifying them entirely, though, so that way we would still have some banner rotation. <.<

Yay! Now there's a way to inobtrusively pay for the hosting! :)

There's 4 regions you can bid separately on. And it depends of your expense limit and when your ad expire. That's the point of bidding: the highest bidder wins, so if you want to see your ad you gotta pay more, and that's how the ads rotate, too, the ads either get outbid or they expire. If there was an actual rotation, that probably wouldn't be as effective, although we can always put up to 5 ad boxes people can separately bid on.

Do regions get added based on ad bids submission?

Juju

No, it's pretty much the same 4 regions. Canada, US, Europe, and the rest.
