Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I've never been aware of a way to collapse the adds on this forum, I've had video's hidden on the right when running as a partial screen window, going to full screen has always given me a wide enough area to get the whole video, 1280 X 800 screen. The last and best option is click the full screen button on the video, it'll pop out of your browser window completely, bypassing the whole forum layout.

I never noticed that collapse - button. Steve made a change a while ago that reduced the size of the right side bar where the adds are, I'd noticed some of the adds were being cut off, that button also went off the screen I guess.

Has your default font size been changed? I've hit sites that have done it to me with no warning or request. A change there may have caused the text area to widen. In Internet Explorer go to View then Text Size and confirm you are set to Medium.

Another area that may have changed that might affect the font size is in your display settings, right click on your desktop and choose Properties or go through Control Panel / Display Properties. Far right tab Settings then click the Advanced Button. This will usually be on the General tab but your driver may have changed it, your looking for the Dot Per Inch (DPI) setting and confirm it is set to Normal Size (96 DPI)

I'm viewing at 1280x1024 screen res.  and I do not have these issues (cursor going in behind ads / videos being cut off).  I cannot see the minimize button for the ad section (that looks to be run off the pages max. viewing area).
Norm, whats your screen resolution set to?

Might want to try 1024x768.

800x600 is an obsolete standard when it comes to screen resolutions (from a web design perspective).  1024x768 is still "the norm" but is slowly becoming obsolete as well due to wide screen monitors.
Im guessing you're working off of a pretty small monitor (15" or less?).  That would make sense as to why you can't view at higher resolutions (15" and less max res. is usually 800x600 or 1024x768, depending on models).  If you're monitor can't handle 1024 res, then try updating your video drivers.  If thats a no-go, you may want to look into upgrading your monitor.  they've got some pretty cheap models at the 17" screen range.  You could always troll around Goodwill's as well.  I've seen some pretty good working monitors (even flat panels) in those places (yes, Im a goodwill troll.  :p  )
Hope this helps some.

-cheers
