Hey, nice looking site. i agree do away with the adsense or at least move it down. A forum is about building a community. Look at how many ads are around here. yet they make a bit of money off of this forum I bet.
Don't focus on people leaving your forum through ads, focus on keeping them there and building up a relationship with them. it takes time, but you will make more in the long run.
I have a forum that i use regularly with no banner ads or adsense. he has his products in a signature, and occasionally posts an article with a link to a product. he also has a for hire section for people that want to offer services that help people build their businesses. I actually have run several of my own services from there.
Right now, focus on adding content and building your community. You won't make any money if people don't come and join you.
Your Focus Determines Your Reality
