I know that the no-adds aspect of VIP doesn't remove the wiki's sidebar inherently, but does that mean there's no way to permanently hide/remove the sidebar AT ALL?
Maybe I just missed it, but shouldn't some personalization setting easily allow users to hide that sidebar perpetually anyhow?
I'm grateful that at least the full-screen map hides it--and that it disappears in windowed mode if I distort my browser dimensions enough--however I'd rather not be forced into those setups all the time just to avoid a more annoying feature.
I really loathe devoting a 1/3 of my windows to plugging the same youtube vid day after day & equally irrelevant news items. (Hell, I wouldn't want to surrender that space to even relevant news & links.) If it's helpful to other people, well, god bless, but for me it's just an unavoidable eyesore and outright detrimental to the wiki's utility/value...yet seemingly so easily be resolved with user settings to let everyone be happy.
