Love the new improvements to the board, especially the fast download on the message board and the profiles.

Good Luck!

        It does indeed look cool, but there is actually a functional reason for doing it, and I wouldn't be surprised if more forums don't start doing it after they see this feature. 

        Forums pages can get quite long, and when the page immediately jumps to a new location it can be very disorienting for people.  By adding a smooth scroll feature, your brain understands where you are on the page, and how you got there.

        For the cool factor, I spent a little extra time and made it slow down a bit at the end of the scoll, so it glides in.  (That was the fun part!)

          Oh now I see - it's supposed to do that! LOL, the first time it happened I thought my keyboard was stuck. Great feature, Todd! I really like it! Thanks again for all you do!

            Yes, it's like the opening of The Outer Limits: "Do not attempt to adjust your picture.  We are controlling the transmission."

            Because of the positive feedback on this feature, I've improved the scrolling a bit for the next release (within the next few days), so that it's smoother and takes a consistent amount of time to get from point A to point B.

                I did enjoy the original show, as well as the original "Zone" - but not old enough to have seen the first runs! Big Grin

                  Same here.  I catch the TZ marathons on Sci-Fi when they run and I still catch an episode that either I've never seen or only saw a couple of times.  "To Serve Man" is my favorite.
