Well I'll be, you actually did it. Looks nice.

Hmm... I can see I'll have to hack the code again to make myself level infinity.

I'll have to change it back, we've decided no admins get special levels or such.

(I hope this is the right place for this.)

I noticed in one of the user profiles that their email is listed as Hidden.  But when I put my mouse over the envelope icon next to the user's posts it shows me their email address.  Is that expected behavior?

(Have you ever been in a writing group where some jerk looks at your whole story and can only complain about a typo, or the word usage in one sentence?  That's a little bit how I'm feeling.  Looking at the massive amount of excellent work and then complaining about the one little flaw I find.  Sorry.   I'll try to redeem myself.)

It looks great!  Thanks for all your overtime to make the site work.  I'm one of many that get a lot more out of the forum than I put into it.   (Should I change my user id to Leech256?)

Ok, the forum should auto-center now in IE7 and FF.

I tried Skar's suggestion on having the top bar stay centered and the rest expand but as the resolution goes up and the table expands the form posts stretch out a lot and the text, sigs and everything else just doesn't look good.  Just imagine doing a document that's page was 24" wide by 5" high 12pt font and single spacing and that's what it's like.  To get everything fixed that would require increasing the font size, image size and such based off of the resolution of the users and considering all browsers let you increase font size and the top 2 allow you to zoom the rest I don't think it's worth the effort.

I don't know if anyone else is having this problem, but the site seems to have trouble forwarding me from the login page. I usually get sent to a blank page where refreshing doesn't do any good, and the only way to get to the forum is to hit the back button a few times.

I know I don't.

Give me the full details, what page your were on, what browser and which log-in section were you using (ie the one in the user info or the log-in on the menu, ect) so I can see if I can find the problem.

when he says that, I think we should point out he needs the exact url you were using. *nod*

Hmmm. It comes and goes. I didn't have a problem this morning.  I wouldn't have mentioned it, but it's happened more than once.

I'm using Firefox on a Mac. The login page is the one I get when I click Login on the top bar (URL=http://www.timewastersguide.com/forum/index.php?action=login). After I enter my name and password and press enter, it goes to that blank page. If/when it happens again, I'll try to catch the URL of the blank page.

I think it's a javascript incompatibility with Macs/Firefox because I get the white screen for about a second before the JS redirects me back.

What have you done to the JavaScript, Sprig? It used to only happen very occasionally. Now it's happenning every time I log in and out.
Jeffe has a Mac too, right? I wonder if he's having the same problem.
