The forum display seems to have changed. There are bullets where there used to be none, such as where poster information is displayed. The report and quote links say report post number and quote post number. The login and register links on the main index page seem to be gone. The headings for posts seem to be split, so you have to navigate to the heading and then press down arrow to activate the link. At first I thought all this was just me, but I found an archived version of the main index page on archive.org that displays correctly. This started happening some time yesterday.

Several people before you seemed to have the same problem. Usually, after maximizing the page, everything should return to normal.

Have a nice day, Mayana.

Hmm. Maximizing the window doesn't seem to do anything. This is happening in both IE and Firefox, which is what made me think it was the forum itself. Yes, I did delete all cookies and browser cache.

Edit: On a hunch, I tried viewing the forum through a web proxy. It displayed correctly. Could it be that my IP has been flaggd or something? It would explain the anti-spam fields I see now.

When you are inside a forum section, such as off topic, the forum puts a dot in front of topic titles where you have posted a message. Could it be that that is what you are seeing?

Mine changed suddenly last night too.  Graphically, the color scheme and layout changed around a little bit and so far it hasn't changed back.

It reminds me of how the form looks (graphically) when you haven't logged in yet.  Once you log into the forum, the layout always used to change.  If I had to guess, it is now continuing to use the "logged out" layout even after we've signed in.

This is an example of what I'm seeing.

Your information is now in bulleted lists as opposed to non-bulleted lists. As I also said, the links to login, register, etc, are gone from the site when not logged in. I had to attempt to post something as a guest before I could even get to the login page after deleting cookies to see if that would fix this. I now also see an anti-spam field when posting replies whereas before I did not.

Sounds like your browser got into a mode where all list are bulleted by default, if such a mode exists. I've never seen anything like that before, so I question such a mode even being possible.

Right now member information is in non bulleted lists for me.

I'm using Internet Explorer 11 and JAWS 17

eh, I don't know. It can't be just my browser if Aprone's display has also changed. Further evidence against that is the fact that it happens in firefox as well as iE, and if it as a setting, deleting cookies should have fixed it.

I don't know, I'm just guessing in the hope that it might help.

ok, so this is odd.
I am having the same issue as you are, both on my phone and on internet explorer. However, when I use google krome, it seems to work just fine. I have no idea why, but it's annoying, because krome is not my primary browzer. It doesn't work great with jaws. Also, is it just my internet, or has anyone noticed that the forum is going rather slowly at the moment?

I'm starting to wonder if this is to blame. It's before the head section of the forum's source.

<!--[if lt IE 7 ]> <html class="oldie ie6" lang="en" dir="ltr"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 7 ]>    <html class="oldie ie7" lang="en" dir="ltr"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if IE 8 ]>    <html class="oldie ie8" lang="en" dir="ltr"> <![endif]-->
<!--[if gt IE 8]><!--> <html lang="en" dir="ltr"> <!--<![endif]-->

AS it is, I can deal with it if it won't be fixed. It's just irritating.

Am I the only one who noticed the copyright at the bottom of the page still claims 2009? Has this board not been updated since? Oh my god the security holes. Shouldn't we keep this page, which is an entry point for a lot of people regarding audiogames, a higher priority than this?
Or am I wrong? I'm just a little concerned
