We've been doing a whole lot of changes, and a few things are broken here or there. Trying really hard to get them fixed up.

A couple of users might notice that their avatars and post counts are busted. We'll get that fixed soon.

I just had to remake my account & every article I go to just redirects to a page with only the banner ad right after it finishes loading...

We're trying to figure out what is wrong with the ads.

What's frustrating is that I can't duplicate the problem at all. I've been trying, on multiple PCs and every different browser.

Here's what I get on the Home page which I think looks better :

<!-- copy and paste. Modify height and width if desired. -->

But when I select an article I get this :

<!-- copy and paste. Modify height and width if desired. -->

Are you running Adblock?

The images are meant to be lazy loaded - as in the page loads first, and then the images load. I'm wondering if there's a conflict with an Adblock rule.

Yea I do run Adblok but have also tried it switched off and in IE 7 which has no add ons, same issue. Not that I'm complaining as I tend to read the write ups anyway, plus the page tends to load a little faster. :)

@ Lighthouse ,

Keep your hands where I can see 'em. :)

I guess I'm going to have to install Pale Moon.

So far you and Lighthouse both have the same problem, and the same browser.

As an update IE7 now loads home page fully including pics but individual article pics still have trouble loading. But not bothered by that as I don't use IE. :)

Are you using any special add-ons? NoScript?

I can't seem to duplicate the problem at all.
