I don't know who's idea it was to add these scroll bars into the forum posts, but they need to be shot!!!

Remove them PLEASE!!! I much prefer the old system.

Scroll to the right and I still can't read the entire message and who knew 1280x1024 is not big enough. Using up-down scroll wheel gets caught up within each message. This is more and more like PHPBB. I thought all these were tested.

[Edit] Got a new error:
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /disks/koloth/a/inet_services/boinc_www/share/projects/sah/html/inc/util.inc:103) in /disks/koloth/a/inet_services/boinc_www/share/projects/sah/html/user/forum_reply.php on line 89

That's exactly my point Thor... They're a pain in the arse!! I had to use the "View Source" option to be able to read the entirety of your message... That's bloody ridiculous!!

I'm sorry about the current state of the forums on some browsers. This is being looked into.

This change was implemented to avoid having to scroll when large images were posted. Instead it had the opposite effect for some.

To some, disabling the display of signatures in the forum preferences page will help solve some of the problem temporarily.

Seems to work in Mozilla, but in IE the forum is 80,000 pixels wide.
