    I’m guessing that’s Server Guy?

    I am trying to use my tablet but i can't sign in because of adds that are placed on top of the sign in place, so each time i try to sign in i keep having to go to an add page called HABBo.. any suggestions? Is that mobile program we download for tablets too?? (I'm using my lap top for this message)..

    I wish I could help, but I don't know much about tablets. I figured out what my problem was. I have IE9 now, and Auto Save is one of the features. I went into internet options and unchecked all the boxes in settings that dealt with this "Auto Save" feature. No hesitation/stalling problems now. :)

    that's good for your issue.. my problem is the ad is right over the sign in so can't even check the stay signed in box either.. very frustrating as i wanted to use my tablet during the week for skate canada updates and not have to take my laptop.. so will see if maybe they can lower the ads or something to at least allow those on a tablet to sign in?

    Try going down and switching to mobile view (assuming it's not already set that way)? That might clear the overlapping ad so you can sign in.

    Thank you so much Lara.. I did what you said and signed in using the mobile site and then once I got in (and ticked the remember me box) i was then able to switch over to the full site! :)

    Yes, would it be possible to make the separation line much darker?

    I, too, have the problem that the ad is partially over the sign in box on my PC. I can sign in, but I can't tick the "keep me signed in" box which means I have to log in every time I come to FSU. And you can't close the ad. This is annoying! Is it possible to move either the ad or the log in?

    I love the new look. I am not yet 100% in knowing everything about the upgraded board, but I am quite happy with it so far.

    I have the same problem whether I use Internet Explorer or Firefox, but only on my PC, not on my tablet. The ad is coming through Google, it is AdChoices or AdSense ads based on other websites I have visited. I am not complaining about the ads themselves, just their placement on the page. It is a nuisance to have to log in each time. Logging out makes no difference. Am I the only one having this problem?

    Problem fixed. The ad in the header would clash with the login box code depending on factors such as your browser and screen resolution.

    Could the Forum and What's New links in the header be swapped? :)

    Is it just me or the "+ Reply to Thread" buttons are pretty much useless? They only try to align me with the "Quick Reply" section, and then I have to click on "Go Advanced" to post as I usually did. Since the one at the bottom of the page is right above the "Quick Reply" box, it feels like it's not doing anything, and I didn't expect the one at the top to do that either.

    I've tried to see if this had already been discussed but couldn't find anything.

    I'm probably being picky, but it seems like there is more white space at the end each post than before. Is there an extra line in there that could be removed or made smaller?

    It looks okay when people make long posts but the smaller ones look a bit odd to me.

    eta- Nevermind. The lightbulb went on. It's the size of our sidebar information that is determining the posting box size.

    What does a "Go Advanced" reply offer that a "Quick Reply" does not?

    That's not new, it was there before. It just offers more features such as more smilie options etc.

    I wonder - would it be possible to make the posts of people who are on the ignore list a bit smaller? This is not an important issue, just something that bugs me a little bit - I have quite a few people on ignore and their posts take up a loooot of space in the threads because each blocked out post is so huge.

    Not impressed with Tapatalk. Doesn't keep me logged in. Doesn't show emoticons, just the code. Doesn't allow repping - which I was hoping it did since the default phone browser doesn't. If you want something better than the default, don't bother spending the $$ on this, IMO.

    Thanks, sk8er. I guess I'll stick with the default web view on my phone like I did with the previous version of FSU.

    Also, seconding (I think) the request to go directly to advanced edit when clicking on reply with quote. Pretty please. :)

    I actually don't mind using tapatalk for browsing, since it is quick and has a recent post function, but I hate not being able to rep :(

    The emoticons have been hit or miss (see some but not all and wouldn't be surprised if it varied between iOS and Android), but Tapatalk has kept my login and even read placement between the app and browser. Not sure why it isn't in sk8er1964's case, that would be annoying.

    Rep may be have to saved for the desktop unfortunately. :(

    I could rep with the browser in the old format, but not leave a message. I haven't tried it in the browser format with the new site.

    Something strange about the emoticons. When I am typing my post for the first time, I don't see the emoticons, but if I go back to edit the post, I see the emoticons on the right. Not sure why I am not seeing them earlier.

    Just noticed that everybody now has their user name bolded, not just the Glorious Admins. Just an observation.

    The emoticons aren't there in quick reply - you have to click go advanced. But when you edit, it takes you to the advanced mode automatically.

    Am I just trying to rep the same people - I think that every single person I tried to give rep to today, I was told I had to spread it around. I know that there are some posters that I want to rep on a routine basis, but everyone today?


    NM - I just repped someone.

    The overlap happens on my iPad running Safari. I got around it by enlarging the page so there was some space for me to enter my data. I cannot see the "keep me signed in", even with the page enlarged.

    Is there any way on the mobile version to open a thread and click on the last page of that thread? I don't see the page numbers listed at all. I'd like to see the newest posts in the thread (usually the last page), not just the first page. I'm using a Blackberry. It's a pity that the "Settings" button is not available on mobile. So far, the old version of FSU was much, much more user-friendly on my phone. :(

    The blue arrow to the right of the thread title will do that (ie go to the last post viewed).

    I have the exact same problem. I have an Android Galaxy Nexus. I normally use Opera Mini to browse the internet but I can never get beyond the first page of a thread. The native browser seems okay, but it looks completely different from when I surf FSU on my desktop.

    Bummer. :(

    I'm using the default FSU web version on an android, if that helps.
