    Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

    If anyone knows how to tighten up the formatting here, I'd appreciate hearing about it. I went through the XenForo preferences, and all I came up with was the ability to disable the display of signatures. I'd like to disable avatars and generally reduce white space. As is, I'm using a large monitor set to 1280x1024, yet only three posts fit on the page (and that's these very short ones in this thread) -- only two until I scroll past the header.

    Oddly enough, I use Adblock for that kind of thing. Only thing is that for me, it won't work here since I have TUG whitelisted.

    If you're willing to muck about in the blacklist/whitelist rules (I don't have the time to fight with it) and use the Element Hiding Helper you can actually put Adblock to use to TUG's benefit by reducing the amount of page-element images you request from the server and still let the ads load so that the impressions count.

    You should not have to have TUG white-listed here -- the text versions of the ads will still show, even on the affiliates links. Besides, the only image ads are on the affiliates pages. There are none on the forum & thread displays.

    Try it!
