Normally adverts for films disappear automatically after a few seconds or else have a clear "X" button to close the advert panel. Not so for "Hellboy".
I am very close to stopping contributing to IMDB because the contemp with which you treat contributors. I want a site which just works. Any adverts should be confined to borders which do not cover any of the site information and do not affect its style sheet and hence its colour palette etc.
Using either Firefox or Chrome, the home page appears OK and I am able search for a title (eg "Casualty" (1986)).
In the case of Firefox, the series level page is corrupted by the advert and the list of seasons cannot be accessed:
In the case of Chrome, I can see the series-level page and search for an episode, but when I open the episode the page is corrupted and the "Update" button cannot be accessed:
If you *must* run adverts that totally obliterate the proper site (and I would urge you not to: it's not big and it's not clever) then can you at least make sure that the advert disappears after a few seconds or else has a "X" button which allows the user to close it.
At present, for me, IMDB is totally unusable. It's not the first time that the site has been hijacked by an advert. Do you actually test the effect of an advert, to make sure that it leaves the site usable?
