    Ray-this is not about the new forum, but since we are starting anew could we start enforcing the no F-word rule again. I'm no prude, but this site is above that. Thanks

    We have always enforced that one.

    If a moderator has missed it, please report the post it is in, we will take care of it per our rules.

    Man! To try to fit all of that in a mobile, or even a tablet, you'ld robably need to insert something like a DHTML "slider tab" on the right side of the screen, that, when the tab is touched, would produce a "sliding window" that will show previous messages, Users active, etc. then slide back and disappear.

    What’s up with these ads that are in between posts on a thread? Super annoying!!!

    You know just like I posted on the other “ads”, thread I saw I’m getting happening right on here right now. Bigand I mean big, open areas between each posts on this thread itself.

    Like on this page ar most I see I have 5 posts in a row then a big blank area. No lines on the side etc just open area. Now also right on here I have one post by itself to read then the big open area again. Funny thing is I’ve sort of gotten use to the big, about 2 inches or so, up and down each side of the posts. But it’s like that big blank areas up and down each side have invaded into, between the various posts themselves.

    I noticed those ads and there's not supposed to be that many. I've asked our ad guy to check into this and see what the deal is.

    Okay, we think we found the problem. Google has a new setting called "Automatic Ads" which was somehow defaulted to "on" so we just turned it off and hopefully it will clear things up. It was noted it may take 24 hours to clear out so I appreciate your patience.

    I suspect you have some sort of adblock running that is working on the in thread ads but not the header ads.

    I don’t know. Stuff like that is always put on by a very young kid for me. If they say I need something, of course I pay attention. And they will take care of it.

    I am in the same boat. I typically think I should know this stuff and spend some time trying to figure it out . Then I give up ask one of my sons and they take care of it in about 30 seconds. lol

    Dont know if it worked but the problem has disappeared. Now though I dont automatically go to the first unread post. I probably turned that off. Lets see if I can figure out what I screwed up in settings.

    Are smiley faces no longer allowed in a post? They seem to get stripped out. :)

    I would swear this didn't work yesterday -- in fact I included it on my post above and it was just stripped out, but today it appears!

    Maybe its magic!
