Just a thought: would it be possible to implement a solution, so that people could pay a certain amount, and in return be given the option of disabling all those adds ... would be nice indeed

Ok I changed the font to Verdana. Turns out that's what it was developed for all along, because I don't have Tahoma on my system. I always saw the Verdana version :p

Thanks, it's better now, though it still looks a little 'thin'. :p

P.S.: My text-cursor still behaves weird :shiftee2:

Same here... The typing is slow, and the cursor behaves very odd. I guess that's because I use IE8. Anyway, I could use Chrome instead, but you might want to fix this problem.
It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

I have to agree. with above statements
My cursor behaves weird while typing this post, with the former letter at the right side of the cursor.
also, scrolling through forums seems to lag.... a lot.
If the above post offended you in any way,
please take note that, until further notice, I don't care, so get lost.

I have no idea what could cause something like that. Are you all using IE? Read the notice at the bottom :p

On default IE7 install it looks like the crap Hostile was seeing.

That is a problem, as not everybody has updated to IE8 yet. You should fix it.

edit: As an added bonus, the browsers page you link to at the bottom for IE is half blocked by the IE glitches, making it part-useless :p

What browser do you use Mirk?



I use Internet Explorer 8, just like the rest of the people here who are having the same problem. Is it my browser that's making all this happen?

Does this mean that I have to put up with this because I have IE?

I don't have this problem in areas that are still the same, like WoA discussion and such.

I have no idea what's causing this issue. I did nothing funky with the text as far as I know.

Does this mean that I have to put up with this because I have IE?

If you keep using IE you should get used to having to put up with many more problems you'll inevitably get in a web that's moving away from it more and more (and not just with Revora) :p

I think I made the header look slightly better in IE7 now. Haven't tested it though, since I don't have that browser.

What are my options then for maybe getting a different browser, at least to use for Revora? I haven't had problems like this on any other forums I belong to.

What browser do you use?

Firefox, Chrome and Safari are equally good at supporting the standards and the newest technology, so choose one of them. The differences between those three are mainly about interface and extra features, which you'll have to make your own choice about.
I myself use Firefox

That attitude is not the right one to have when creating websites. IE is awful to adjust code for, but since it's still the dominant browser you need to make Revora work with it.

I suggest that the old layout be put back up until an IE compatible version of the new layout can be created. You're alienating a ton of possible viewers/members with this issue.

I have access to Rev's statistics. IE dominant? It's used by 24% of our visitors (and dropping fast), most of which have IE8 already. For those in IE7 it looks weird, but still usable if you have to.
Those who still use IE6 can go screw themselves :p (it's older than the gamecube)

Revora, targeting a more tech savvy audience, is in an excellent position to not support IE very well.

Okay. I downloaded Firefox and Yipee! My problems are gone. Now I don't have to get sick looking at the way things were running with IE8. :p

The part by the magazine still doesn't look right to me. Maybe it looks alright on a different resolution, but it looks pretty nasty for me.

Can you put up a screenshot? Then we can see if it's really wrong, or just not to your liking.

Websites should work on as many browers / resolutions as possible, whether you like them or not. Though personally I've no idea why anyone would visit the Revora main site.
