Went to change my clock settings for end of BST and now I have the sidebar. Went back into forum preferences and the option to remove it isn't there!

My preference is not to have it. Can this be done?

Correct, I noticed it too when I tried to turn it off on the netbook.

Not sure if this is on purpose and/or if there's a workaround.
It doesn't really bother me and I know the ad revenue is for the server and hosting, so a good cause really.

I also like the T-shirt girls, so I'd leave the ads on anyway. Image

Believe it or not the sidebar is there for a reason.

Maybe ask all the other sites on the internet who run similar sidebars if they are prepared to lose money by not showing said ads to a larger percentage of their users? Not a polite answer?

I can manually switch users back onto the non sidebar template. Just PM me. Anyone who uses a sad or cross emoticon will probably not get what they want...

Also please see > viewtopic.php?f=8&t=276793
