I switched to basic,is much better now,but when i get to the last bit at bottom of page it does it again,not that it matters.I have a HD4670 ATI with 512 and a quad core with 4gigs.Do u need a better card to scroll with?Some other sites with flashy graphics scroll fine.It's not important,and I'm not complaining,is just info.Thanx for reply so quick tho'
I have firefox 3.6(standard)and win7x32(I know it's only using 3.x mem)
I just tried in ie out of interest in case of extensions and that scrolls quicker,but has a pause every couple inches.Still no where as quick as similar(looking )sites,they fly.This page scrolls normal speed,really quick.(in basic theme)
Edit:This page scrolls ok(not as fast as normal)with normal theme(until u get about ten inches from bottom,then same as front page).It's really the front page.Tried all right column minimized,no difference.
Had 10.2 but installed and restarted anyway,no difference.As soon as u hit the bottom bar on this page it goes to a crawl(and whole front page)just b4 page navigation.
Have to go,will check in a bit.Thanx
Ps. I wouldn't worry about it till someone else mentions it,in case it's something my end.Am doing a new installation today,will report back whether it's still doing it.
Thanx for help.
Mike. You're the reason this forum does so well. I'd like to thank you for all you've done. I'm sure you have put a lot of effort and spent a ton of money on this place.
I hope you never took my questions about scripts running on the site as criticism. I'm just a very curious person. I've never found anything that I might criticize here. It always seemed like a very well run site to me. Thanks for providing it for us.
I agree completely! This forum is definitely the best Windows 7 forum on the net!! Full of great staff and great members! There is so much valuable Windows 7 information floating around on this forum it's truly amazing...
Hmm yes, all agreed upon. Unfortunately, SOME of our fair-weather friends, feeding at the trough of success at the site are complaining about the announcement of our golden age, claiming it was "unsolicited spam". Whenever we send out a notification or e-mail, two or three people come out complaining it is spam, calling us morons. Upon searching on their posts, it is found that they had a problem, it was solved by someone with good intent, and they were never heard from again. This is called feeding from the trough of success!
I would like to clarify this information for all:
Understanding our e-mail policy
You willfully joined our website and agreed to receive administrative e-mails. This option can be turned on or off at any time! During your initial registration on our website, you willfully, under your full recognizance, agreed to, from time to time, receive e-mails from administrators. This e-mail, therefore, does not constitute spam. Do not join websites if you do not want to receive e-mails from them.
"Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, Log into your account Under Settings, Disable "Receive E-mail from administrators"."
This is probably the first e-mail we have sent our members in 6-months, too. That is the funny part. We have quite a large group still stuck in 2009, I'm afraid..
It is one of your options, under "settings", to receive mail from the Adminstrator. Mike's comment, " And by joining our site, you agreed to receive administrative e-mails.", may be a little misworded, therefore.
Anyone who has opted to receive such, will have the email which you have laboriously repeated here.
I may share some of your views in your first para, but perhaps it could have been worded a little more politely.
The linked site you refere to is, technically, top class. In spite of its huge following, its respons time is really fast. It has also been around, inherited from it's sister, Vista , site, for a long time and has had the opportunity to mature.At the moment, this site is going through stages of improvement, based very much on suggestions. I, myself, believe I have a reputation of being a "whiner" on site matters!
I do not see your first para as offering very much in that field. Mike efforts, whatever the personal opinions may be, are the result of hard work and dedication. Helpful suggestion would always win the day, rather than outspoken rude comment.
I have an idea. Seeing as a 5 year old could do better, I'm going to pay you to redesign our website. By acting like a child, you have proven yourself to be a worthy designer and website administrator. Please send me your resume and contact information as soon as possible. Having 6 posts, we take your critques extraordinarily seriously and need this kind of expert advise now more than ever before.
Your avatar being a cat wearing a suit also lends to your credibility
OMG. Have you joined this site to spike it, Krazdkiller? By your tone I can only deduce that. Alternatively, why stay if you have such extreme views.
1. I am autosubscribed to my posts.
