Display something useful above the advert box

Currently the side panel section is dead space clearly only there to house the advert window.

Why not have the space above it show something relevant such as a list of either popular addons or recently updated addons. Or it could show off a random addon (one that's compatible with your game version)

If a user pays to remove ads, they could still choose to have this panel there, but extend it the entire height of the window, or just hide it entirely. I think that would be better than just having ragnaros staring at you.

    Hey,
    We're looking at a few options to use that space in a way that adds value for users. There are a few different directions, but probably not directly part of the app's main mod management functionality.
    Addon recommendation is an interesting idea, perhaps 'more addons from the author' etc., will add that in :)

    as for the last bit - we are indeed going to allow subscribers to remove the art area if they choose.
