I don't know whether there was an upgrade here but IE (latest version) has a hard time displaying threads (textboxes appear in every comment). That was not there with IE a couple days ago. (I swear). Firefox is fine. Not a big deal, but letting y'all know.

Text boxes? Do you mean ads? Or something else?

Nah. no ads
I mean "text boxes" in the good old (Gee been 20 years now) definition of a text box in html. Like height and width bars appearing within each reply. Suspect that it has to do with some "element" def in the exploder that is not yet up to snuff...

And now that I am thinking about it, might be because of the ads ;) Like an option of ads appearing on each reply or something. Really. Check it out on exploder. 'Tis trippy ;)

What version of IE are you using? I've checked it in both IE8 and 9... Don't see anything strange about the ads on the right.

I see what you're talking about now... Are you using IE7? If so, is there any way you can upgrade the browser? IE7 is used by well under 5% of our users... I'd like to convince people to upgrade if possible. It's a really terrible browser. Here's the link to the IE8 download (or even better, switch to Firefox or Chrome if possible):

Well, that's certainly interesting. I cannot get it to replicate the error using IE9 under Win7. Anyone else having problems?

Rocketpig, I have the same problem when I use the site at work. I thinks its Vista. Can't update work computers. EDIT: It's Windows XP. Whatever. I knew it was one of the crappy old versions.

Upon plunking around on TD a bit further while at work, I have to agree here that the text boxes are proving to be a huge headache trying to navigate through any threads. One in every 5 or so replies will also contain a video link advertisement, which is throwing stuff out of whack even more. This only became a problem in the past couple days.

Is the video auto-playing with sound? If so, I certainly want to know immediately. That is a huge no-no in my opinion.

Each person is delivered individual ads based on what the network feels is appropriate for you. I haven't seen any video yet so if you could keep me in the loop here, I'd appreciate it.

There does not appear to be sound, but each of them auto plays. I currently have two of them going in this thread alone... With the text boxes on each reply to the thread.

Good to know. I'm going to try booting the site on different computers and see what kind of ad results I get. Apparently, the site thinks I'm unemployed (technically, I guess I am) and almost exclusively delivers me Monster.com advertisements.

What browser are you using, BTW? Type and version.

Okay, I booted it up on another computer. I see what you're saying... It plays sound-less video. Not my favorite thing in the world but not terribly annoying, either. I'll check with the TwinsCentric guys and get their opinions.

Good. At some point today, I contemplated just pounding my head on the keyboard in hopes that I'd trigger the "enough monkeys at enough keyboards and you'll get Shakespeare" theory into reality.
