I guess most of you here have a 56K modem and even thought it is at 56K mode the forum takes about 40 seconds to load the first time you get in and about 20 seconds to load, eg after you have post a topic etc...
The ads are too anoying and should be loaded adter the main messages appear. Anyone with me here?

AIRLINERS.NET CREW SITE ADMIN
I know the ads can be annoying at times but as people pointed out, they pay the costs involved in running a website such as Airliners.net. If it wasn't for them there wouldn't be any Airliners.net or you would have to pay a fee to get access.
The advertisers demand that their ads are shown above the fold, without the need to scroll, that's why I've put them at the top.
We might be able to find some other form of income in the future but right now the banner ads are of critical importance to our existance.

I LIKE porn ads. They're better than that about.com nonsense, all these "Chrisitans" foaming at the mouth about how god is going to get us, if satan doesn't stick a fork up our bottom first. Or something. And as far as I can tell, being a Chrisitan AND teenaged in our society is very confusing when attempted at the same time. Or not. (It's hard to tell cos of all the bad spolling - the post about Marilyn Manson may well have been about HANSON for all the sense it made.)

Perhaps when you click on a topic, it can come up on another screen, just like what happens when you want to see a photo in the photo section. That way, you don't have to go ALL the way back. You can just close the front window and bamm, your back to the main discussions page. (It's like this in the NEWS section too.)

If you're using Netscape on a PC, you can make the threads open in a new window. Instead of clicking the topic with the left button, click it with the right. A pulldown menu will appear, and you can choose the first choice, "Open in New Window". This will cause the link to open in a new window, and if you do this for several topics, you can have them all open in different windows at the same time. I usually do this, and flip to another topic while I wait for a reply to load. There is a way to do this on a Mac, but I don't know how. It's different due to the fact that there is right mouse button. I don't think that this is possible in Explorer, but it might be in the new version.
