It's all on the left for me too... have to scroll *way* down to get to the messages. Hope it's an easy fix!

is it me?

It is a mess!!

I have already worn out one scroll wheel.

No excuse for something so clumsy and no way to fix it except waiting for the Geeks.

- Sorry for being so polite for something that is such a downgrade.

new forum format is terrible

Whoever changed the format has totally messed it up. it is very difficult to navigate this site now.

Please put it back the way it was.

I'll second that motion.

And give us back the formatting options of bold, italic, underlining, color and such.

joed,

I don't know what you are talking about (nothing looks different to me), but complaining in this forum is not likely to do any good.

I would address any concerns using the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

I decide to try firefox and see what happened.

If you are using firfox it seems to appear the same.
If you are using IE it has new 2 page list of the sub forums at the top of the page instead of the complete listing it used to have.

There is another thread going on about this same thing. Titled "Is it just me" I think. Most think (hope) this is just a glitch. I know when I bring up the page, it reads "done but with errors" at the bottom of my browser. That tends to make me think there is a problem in geek world.

I use Firefox and it's messed up for me. Everything appears fine when I use internet explorer, however.

It's back for me too. But lets not bash the site maint. person. It just happens with updates, and has to work out the bugs. Typical 'puter stuff. (Usually it's a setting chosen along the way).

Works for me at work. However the quote feature does not seem to be working properly. I only see the text not an actual formatted quote.

Yup, that's just the way it is. (The quote thing). Nothing wrong with it, nor is it being fixed...just the way it is. (At least for now). If the code is on, then it's on, if not...it's not.
