    P, you can take a screenshot by pressing a button on your keyboard that says "print screen", or an abbreviation of that. Then you can paste into an image editing program, MS Word, etc.

    No report button? For that spam that hits when few are online except me and...well...spammers? How am I supposed to do my civic duty without a report button?

    I tried that and got an error that said ... hmm ... I can't remember exactly what it said, but it was something like file size too big or too much information of something. Haven't had a chance to go back and try again after closing extra tabs.

    Eh. *shrug*

    Have any of the mods/admins looked into the configuration settings link I posted for turning the signatures on for regular users?

    a few people have found that and used it, because I have gotten a few notices...but it was very early on...I will go back and see if I can see who it was

    Not to beat a dead horse or anything, but Re: disappearing buttons: I've tried IE8, IE9 and firefox (gotta remember to check and see which version of firefox.) Only IE8 zooms in and out without the disappearing button issue. (Incidentally, when I first reported the issue, it was unrelated to zooming. My buttons were invisible for more than a week, regardless of zoom in both IE9 and firefox.)

    I will try Chrome and maybe another couple browsers this weekend for completeness.

    No urgency, IMV, anymore. I have myself convinced that it's something to do with that frame in the upper right. I have some work-arounds that work for me (e.g. try zooming or try a different browser.)

    Mods cannot do anything but listen and try to help on this end, then remind the owner to remind the tech staff to look into it... the chain of command is long.

    Just to reiterate Larinda's point, the mods are here to help moderate the forums and can only make sure tech issues get passed up the chain to the tech staff. Only the tech people know what else they have to deal with and how to best prioritize various "to do" items. So, yes, please do keep us abreast of any issues or concerns... but please be patient as we forward these along for further action. Thanks! :)

    Disclaimer: My programming experience is old and limited, but ... Depending on how the software is structured, it may not make sense to go after the cosmetic stuff (like my beloved dead horse disappearing buttons lol) until after any possible, larger, underlying (and possibly invisible to user-types) issues are addressed.

    Kinda like putting up drywall before you're done with wiring. ;)

    Exactly. The point being that we are not ignoring any issues of which we are made aware, but that we are trusting our tech team to prioritize these as they deem best.

    FWIW. I have experienced a lot fewer timeout errors when posting in long threads. Has anybody else noticed an improvement?

    Yep. I was just about to say something. I haven't been on a whole lot because of Uni and stuff, but it's a lot better.

    I haven't had a timeout error in several days.

    Agreed; they are much less frequent than before. I'm still getting one occasionally, but it's pretty rare.

    However, I am still being logged out. It's perfectly predictable (first time I log in, if I click on the D-F logo; also if I go into the online auction thread/listing for some reason), but annoying.

    It still doesn't play particularly nicely with Tapatalk; half the time I tap a thread to go to the latest reply and I just end up with a blank screen.

    I'm really glad these issues are getting looked into.
    I'm attaching a screenshot of what my drop down looks like ...womp womp....

    I'm getting a strange formatting issue when my window is smaller than a certain size it looks like this. Is this something fixable or only solvable by having the window big?

    FWIW, techie people, usually when I do get the "server did not respond in time" error, I get logged out straight away.

    Don't know if that helps...
