For the most part I like it. I had a problem getting overwhelmed with email from threads I had taken part in but I think I've got that resolved. I appreciate the time and effort that was expended in an attempt to make this a better place. There's no way you can please everyone but for one am happy with this forum.

Yep per, comfort zone is what is upsetting everyone. You can still do everything you could do in the past and much more. You have to take a few minutes and set up your account with what you want. The options are there for you, you just have to apply your preferences. A few clicks here and there and bingo, just what you wanted.

At first, I thought "what the ----", now that I've explored and set up what I want, I think it's great!!

Best to all,

I use these bulletin boards and don't have a problem with the other ones I use. This one has had some problems, but I realize they are working on it. I can't post unless I tell it to remember me..even though it welcomes me when I sign in. I find that agravating. I may just want to sign in, post and when I leave, not be signed in. It's not every time, but often enough that I usually just decide not to post.

Also, when I first saw the new logo, I thought it was cute with the little guy on the front. Until I gave a couple of people the site, and they didn't save it, and both came back to me saying they wrote it down (RV2.com) but couldn't get in. I suggest you buy that site and link it, because I think it will be a common problem, especially when people start seeing our new stickers, and only copy down part of the address. Just my .02.

Just curious: is anyone else experiencing an erratic scroll when going downpage?? Since the change, we've had this occuring, making it sooo slow getting through the Forum topics. The bouncing around makes it difficult to get through all the posts, so it's difficult to keep up any more.

Otherwise, the format seems great

Dick and Pat,

I have not had any issues at home or at work. If you continue to have problems, put a separate note in the Technical forum with the description of the problems and also advise your Browser name and version and your software platform (Windows or Vista).

Dick & Pat,

I had terrible page loading/scrolling issues using IE 7.0 on my laptop. It was slower that dial-up!! My husband also has IE 7.0, but on a turbo-charged desktop & had no problems. I took advice from a previous post & loaded Mozilla's Firefox & have had no troubles. I don't know what it was with my laptop & the new VB, but they weren't compatable. Firefox is working just fine with the new VB.

Give Firefox a try & see if your issues improve.

We had numerious problems at first, primarily with the great AOL. Now however; after a few call to AOL it appears to be working fine. I did find out it is better if you click on the remember me. All in all it is pretty nice, miss the old smilies but I guess we'll live with whats available.

Erratic scrolling? Using Windows Vista and IE 7.0, I have noticed the page doesn't scroll as smoothly as the old format, but is what I would call jumpy. Kind of makes my eyes bounce around.

Waiting for all the ads to load each time the page changes is somewhat of a bother.

Ding-a ling,

What type computer and chip are you using? How much memory is there on the machine?

I have an older XP machine at home and it only has 1 gig of shared RAM and it is noticably slower than my Vista machine with 2 gig of ram.

Ken

Ken,
I got this in May 2007:

Gateway MT6705
Intel CPU T2060 @ 1.60GHz
RAM 1.00 GB

The jumpy scrolling here is similar to what I experience at http://www.mcall.com/ , the Allentown Morning Call, that I read each morning. Cannot recall any other sites at which I have similar problem.

FJF

FJF,

Per the specs on your machine, it has a shared memory video graphics--
Video ControllerIntel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950
Up to 224 MB of Shared Video Memory (when 512 MB or more system memory present

This means the you have limited video graphics memory and it is using part of the i GB or ram.

I personally feel that a Vista machine should not be shipped with less than 2 GB of ram. Vista is a memory hog.

I think what is slowing you down is sites with a fair amount of graphics in the pages.

Are you using IE of FireFox. I have better luck and faster page loads with FireFox. It is free download and picks all of your favorites, etc from IE.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Ken

I have a Vista machine with 4 gig of ram and using Firefox.

Forum pages with lots of photos like the Newmar quick fixes, cause the page to jump up and down while loading and there's nothing I can do but wait until the page loads.

Pages shouldn't be jumpy. Please make sure that you have the latest versions of your browser running and fully updated. Jumpy scrolling was a known issue on a now outdated version of Firefox but can be cause by other incompatibilities as well.

You can download Firefox here
You can update Internet Explorer 7 here or Download IE 8

If you are a Firefox user make sure that your plugins are also updated.

My Dell Latitude D630 scrolles fine on WIFI, but when I connect to Verizon DSL router
it jumps and reloads each page. My DW's laptop also jumps on the DSL. I have not tried hers on WIFI. Is there a setting on the router that I need to look at?
