    Interesting. Well, for John or anyone working on this, I can't scroll at all, I just have 1/2 screen narrow band of FORT, with 1/4 blank blue screen on each side (which used to be the dizzying stuff until adblocked.)

    Thanks again to all who helped and are helping.

    You had exactly what I have now, before you ad-blocked. I am glad you have figured something out.

    Just wanted to say that this is working fine for me now. The narrowness is a drawback, but that's so minor. The thing it was doing before was really bizarre and....neurologically disturbing! Mr. lei saw it and agreed, so it wasn't just my addled brain. And from what I'm reading here, it was unique to my computer.

    The banner is really pretty.

    This is what I'm seeing also. Sometimes it sucks to have IE. Any chance it's gonna get fixed?

    About the background: I will admit that it really hurt my eyes at first. But now I'm getting used to it, and I do like it now. I can't wait to see what shows will be advertising on FoRT next.

    Lei or JLuvs, if you don't think we're seeing what you're seeing, a screenshot of what you're seeing would help. We obviously don't want the site to be "neurologically disturbing", but at the same time, I'm not sitting over your shoulder so I can't fix what I'm not seeing.

    I'll fix the icon problem in IE this morning.

    I kind of like the new format. But I'd like it better if it was full screen.

    Lei,

    The people climbing up on the television screens on each side of your page is exactly what John has been referring to.... the forced advertising from America's Next Producer television show. That is also why, as he explained further above, your actual message board section is smaller because it's a fixed width. Those people with a larger font setting for their internet probably don't see the doods on the tv screens, but those at 1024x768 and smaller do.

    Why exactly was yours distubing... were they actually moving? Or was it just the sensation you got when you were scrolling through the message board when the people were standing there?


    John... I never got the little red Xs on IE.

    It's different, but not disturbing to me.
    small price to pay for this terrific place.

    I am glad that it is temporary ~ I was trying to find my button to change it back to my original screen.
    And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know ~ Kansas
