    Hiding the obnoxious grid at the top of every forum page

    I've written a Stylish plugin to hide the huge grid inexplicably at the top of every single forum page. This grid is cool on the home page, semi-useful on the gallery page, and totally obnoxious on the forum pages.

    You need Stylish installed in your browser (Firefox or Chrome).

    Then go to the userstyles.org page where I have uploaded it:

    conceptart.org - remove huge grid from forum

    If you don't have access to Stylish (say, you are using Safari), there are probably other ways to add this style (say, Greasemonkey). The CSS code of the style is this:

    Code:
    @-moz-document domain('www.conceptart.org'), 
         url-prefix('http://www.conceptart.org/forums') {
    /* Hide the huge grid */
    #thumbgrid_wrap
    {
      display: none;
    }
    
    /* Hide banner ads */
    img.bannerz
    {
      display: none;
    }
    }
    I haven't tested this a whole bunch. Let me know if you see problems with it. In particular the "nth-child" line is a bit suspect.

    The grid is awesome on every page. This thread is obnoxious.

    I had to Adblock when I was banning spammers (nearly called them people) and was wearing out my scroll finger.

    I like the grid and have no problems with it.

    I got no problem with that, or even not wanting to see the grid.

    But it riles me just a little when someones first post is to label the grid that is meant to drive and inspire everyone as obnoxious. But I sound like an asshole, to the OP thanks for trying to help I guess.

    Meh, my stitches hurt.

    Sure, it's kind of big. But considering the great resource that is this site is provided free of charge....

    I think I'll survive.

    Getting rid of the "obnoxious grid" is like just going to YouTube to watch comments.

    Sorry, here for the art.

    Personally, I find the grid annoying. Not enough to download something to get rid of it, but it really annoyed me when I first joined. I've gotten used to it now.
