There are a couple glitches on the site that I have noticed. the first one is when you go to reply to a topic and you start typing the page goes down and you have to click in the box again to finish typing. The second, I went to post a topic and for some odd reason it posted 3 times, each time I tried to submit my post it showed some kind of email error. I thought that was strange. I'm sure these are things that will be fixed once the format is updated. Just thought I should mention that.

*lol, sorry for posting that under the other topic. Didn't even think about it.

I've had a go at reproducing this but it doesn't seem to do it for me. Do you get this problem every time you reply to a post, and how far down does it go - does it automatically scroll all the way to the bottom of the page ?

Can you remember what the error message was ? This sounds like something that should be quite simple to fix - if it does it again, see if you can get a copy of the error message and I'll take a look at it.

yes everytime, but it only happens when I type right away. I think it's because the page hasn't fully loaded.

Are you using Internet Explorer, or another browser when this happens ?

If your using a different one, try it with IE and see if it still does it.

Right, I am using the sbc yahoo browser, which I believe is internet explorer also, but now that I think about it, when I'm on AOL it doesn't do that.

I think your browser is probably the most likely candidate. Your best bet is to give it a try with Internet Explorer and see if it still has the problem.

Incidently, is anyone else experiencing this ?

Actually, 'Jolly good show' isn't an adjective at all; it's a noun phrase.

I know nobody would have got a decent night's rest worrying about that one.

ive found a glitch too, but i can't reproduce it.  a few days ago, i hit the back button on my browser (after reading a long topic) and some white screen with all kinds of numbers and symbols appeared instead of the forum.  its only happened once, and i can't find out what i did to cause it.  i just went back to my favorites and reloaded the forum.  

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

I'm using I.E. and I have gotten this "Mail Error" error several times when posting a new topic.  Usually I just get "Page Has Expired," when I go to post new topics or replies.

SaRuMaN, It has only happened a couple of times with the "Mail Error."  Next time it happens I will copy the whole message here.
