    Looks like the missing first posts are caused by a combination of them sticking the first post inside an ad container, and people running the cleanup CSS. I've updated it to take the changes into account - business as usual here, or in the quote below.

    If you originally installed this CSS via userstyles, you should be able to just click the 'Check for Updates' button in the preferences for Stylish, and you'll get the changes automatically.
    Code:
    /* ***** Changelog  *****
     * 2013-07-05
     * Added workaround to preserve first-post content while still nuking the first-post ads.
     *
     * 2011-08-30
     * Updated for vBulletin 4
     *
     * 2010-11-25
     * Added support for IE 7+
     *
     * 2010-11-22
     * Complete rewrite to work with the new PCW site theme
     *
     * 2010-09-23
     * Removed all adbureau.net links (incl. images)
     *
     * 2010-02-11 21:27
     * Removed a new banner ad at the top of the forum
     *

     * Changed width of left ad column (thanks R2x1 for noticing this)
     * Removed a new div containing more top ads
     * Removed google ads iframes
     * Removed the new logo
