Hi! I think that currently, while displaying a specific message, you reserve space on the right of the message boards for ads. Instead, my suggestion is to:

1) Use the space above and below the message, on the right, for ads.

2) Use the right, now empty, column to display the list of messages, albeit in a smaller font. If desired, the user could click on the board name to enlarge the list as it is now displayed.

3) Allow users to scroll/click on and move to messages just as they normally would.

When trying to keep up with the ever-increasing number of messages on the MI board, I find it more and more time-consuming, therefore annoying, to have to switch back and forth from message to list. There is just not enough time to read each thread!

I think this would be a great timesaver while still allowing for advertisements.

Thanks for listening!
