Just a heads up to keep in mind over the next several days:

When you browse through the forums, you may find some message threads that look a little "glitchy".  This means that maybe the font used in the message continues beyond the message posted, and is repeated in other messages below it.

That happens because you're looking at a message that was posted using the old editor.  As messages posted using the old editor start to fade from the top of the forums, we will see this less and less, until it disappears completely.

There is nothing terribly harmful about it - it just looks a little weird.

    I just finished fixing about a dozen threads like this.  Some of them caused IE to freeze, although Firefox does not freeze.  In some cases it was someone's signature line that caused the problem.  Strange, but true.

        To make sure your sig is A-OK, click Edit Signature in the Control Panel menu, and then just immediately click Save Signature. 

        Doing that will clean up any bad code in your sig.

          Todd,

          When I tried that with my sig. I got the message I have exceeded my 200 characters. I assume it is because of the gif I use. I haven't noticed it being a problem before. Have put new post on the forum now without any adverse effects (that I am aware of). Do you foresee a problem if I keep my sig. the same?

          Thanks,

           Bryan  :)

              I made an adjustment - giving you more characters - try again.
