Thought I'd drop a quick comment. The front page looks like [H]ardOCP, brought to you by Asus ROG. I'd say not quite half of the front page (for me) is Asus Banner ads on the right and left hand sides (say 45% of the screen) while the center is the front page news.

If it pays the bills...no complaints...I completely get it :)
Just wanted to mention it in case it was a bug.

Browser is Chrome. You'll ask me what version and I have no blanking idea how to find it...let me check...Chrome version 68 on Win7 64 Bit.

That is exactly what HardOCP is right now, brought to you buy ASUS ROG. Without ASUS advertising, we would no longer be here. And yes, the campaign is referred to as an "ad takover" in the industry. Runs for two weeks.

No worries...I figured as much!

Well I am assuming it is displaying as it should be. What we have done is added a "site skin" for this campaign. This is what the site should look like.

Not taking you to task, just trying to be helpful.
Maybe I should have kept my big mouth shut and minded my own business like my Kindergarten Teacher used to tell me!
All good, brother. Nothing wrong with having a conversation about it. If you narrow the window, the site should stay centered as well, so you never lose focus on the content.

It’s all jacked up on iPads. Graphics behind/over don’t and the page is off center.

iPad should be used in Mobile mode. Go to the bottom of the page and select Mobile View.

You can then go into settings on mobile view to display the news laid out like it is on the news page or in an contracted view that will let you click on every news item to expand it.

What gets me is the Roman numerals. I didn't look close enough and wondered why a 3-year old game was being advertised. What the fuck Activision?

Yeah I go into the settings and purposely switch it to Desktop on your site for my iPad. It reverts about every two or three weeks back to mobile so it’s something I have to continually change back.

But your site has worked and looked fine for years on iPads with the settings on “Desktop”. It does not now with that skin...
Your are correct.
