Angry What's going on here?

Well. There's an old saying that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" I've got to say, that the website used to work just fine, but now it seems to me that it has be fixed too much.

Pages are now taking ages to download (and I'm using cable, so it isn't that my modem is too slow). When they do finally show up, they're sized so that they run off the right side of the screen, and I have to scroll both up/down and left/right. This isn't good. In fact, it is really a bad thing.

I also have to say that the "score-card" feature on the left side is something that I find quite unappealing. The way it used to be was just fine with me.

All in all, I'm not a happy camper right now.

Unhappy

Well i do my best around here to make things more interesting.. The "score card" was actually made to duplicate a feeding card or something like that and i like having access to a little bit of user information when im reading posts as for the loading of the pages sometimes the hosts can be really busy and i dont beleive it is because of the new stuff ive dont to the forums... there is another old saying that i use and its you cant please everyone.

the pages seem to download fine on this end... and are not out of whack.. could it be the screen resolution you are using??

as for the score card I tend to agree but its not a bad thing... just cosmetic... nothing to get "unhappy" about.. teh guys on this site are working hard to make this site the best they can....

as for the pictures scrolling off the page that happens when people post a picture that is to big and the screen extends, it has nothing to do with the software it happens on ANY BB software anyone is running...

Jeff,

Any way you can put the date that each post was posted back beside the date? It's just a minor detail but I found it useful.

Corey

I think the record sheet idea is fine, its nice to have all that info, but the format is what is distracting, the different colours and all the separate boxes and stuff kind of clutters the page.

I like Corey's idea also of having dated posts. It could be very useful

Your doin a great job though
