    Bob, I think you've found another piece to the puzzle here....

    I also don't like the bar on the right with the icons. It really gets in the way when reading, replying and even scrolling. Could it be moved to the bottom or something?

    I tried the link in IE & it took about 15 seconds to load the page. It could be why there doesn't seem to be as much activity here lately, although I know it is still winter. A lot of people do use IE for different reasons. After I switched to Chrome I've never gone back. I didn't have anything happen with the little links in IE though, they were still over on the right & small the same as they look for me in Chrome. I hope it gets fixed for those of you having problems.

    If my "screen shot" worked is this what they look like to you Seashell? Or are they much bigger? (I've never added a pic on here so sorry in advance if it doesn't show up)

    Seashell,
    Are you able to adjust your screen resolution?

    On my laptop the side bar isn't in the way at all. It's like that screen shot Melanie shared. When I'm on my pc I feel like it's trying to take over the world. I will have to experiment with the resolution, but I probably won't be able to change it because I use that computer for work. Thanks for the suggestion, it never even occurred to me that the resolution on my pc might be messing it up.

    Thanks for sharing that pic DeanM that would drive me crazy, to have the links over the text like that. I hope it can get "fixed" for everyone having problems.

    1. This new format is just plain horrible. Way too slow to load. Even typing my answers take longer.
    2. I agree with everyone else that the bar on the right NEEDS TO GO!
    3. Is there even a Sanddollar program anymore? I'm planning a trip to OC soon and would like to cash them in before I come. If it's still available, there needs to be a sticky so we can just click on it.

    I think in HTML you can add a percentage to the table to specify how much of the screen the table (in our case, the message board) takes up. At least thats the way it was years ago. It could have changed since then.
