    How come this has to be so wide? The skyscraper ads never fill it horizontally. If it was narrower, wouldn't it allow article images to be larger and help with the zoom issue (which is still a problem).

    I've just viewed some of your articles in Chrome on my PC and the skyscraper ads on the right hand side fill the column width. Are you on a zoom setting of less than (or more than) 100%?

      This is how it looks in Firefox (zoom is set to actual size). The appearance is the same in Chrome. My laptop screen is widescreen, maybe that's the issue?

    It depends too on this Windows display setting, even if a browser is set to display actual size. I use 125% because otherwise text would be tiny on a HD display. Increasing to 175% makes both text and graphic elements on the Maven version of Hubpages sites fill the view area.

    I am still not seeing a sidebar. Unsure why, as I live in the US and was not experiencing ad issues, before I updated my operating system. I use a Chromebook and agree the sidebar feels extemely wide. I don't think I have a widescreened computer and zoom is always set at 100%.

    Without the ads the empty space makes the whole page look off center. If I'm lucky I do ocassionally see a small square ad that pops in and out as I scroll, but nothing like the long sidebar ad I use to see. This is what it looks like for me now.
