    Issue - Garbage on my screen

    click on (Quick Links\)Subscribed Threads, and the display looks like this:

    GarbageAtTopOfScreen.jpg



    EDIT

    And I also get a "quick flash" of a screenfull of similar garbage when posting a reply (or when creating a new thread)
    The 2 problems are connected - both started happening at same time

    Re: Issue - Garbage on my screen

    and now I am getting the dreaded "dots" going round in a circle forever and ever and ever and ever......after every post.
    Luckily the post is being recorded - but it's a pain
    happening on IExplorer and GoogleChrome

    Re: Issue - Garbage on my screen

    Yep, same here, since about an hour or so ( so started about Midday English time )
    http://www.excelforum.com/the-water-...ml#post4590219
    ( Me also Internet Explorer and Google Chrome )
    Seems that otherwise things are still a lot better than before the Server change, so probably just a small Hiccup today

    Edit , this time a bit different - when you get the dreaded "dots" going round in a circle forever and ever, then a quick refresh clears that.. like I try now on this edit..

    Edit 2: Yep, it spun for ever, but a quick refresh woke it up and showed the Edited post

    The 'What's New' and 'My Posts' buttons also...

    I would post the message but the firewall is doing an excellent job.

    Garbage on my screen. Maybe it will Blow Off

    If you go through the Buttons you get a few weird things. Maybe not a good idea to do it too much and tempt fate?.. ( Haven’t seen anything unusual ( apart from the spinner / endless loading ) when navigating through the main Forums yet )
    Maybe it will blow over.
    It is quite windy here today.
    ( If you go advanced when Replying, you get the strange stuff again. There were some outstanding issues regarding Editing / Reply window contents vanishing and the such. Possibly someone is having a look at those for us and as a side effect we are getting the strange things just now. – Just trying to look on the bright side. )

    It's very annoying...! :-(

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.

    Re: Issue - Garbage on my screen

    The one bit of comfort here is that despite all the garbage in the display, everything I have tried to do has worked

    When trying to Manage Attachments, that screen had almost totally disappeared behind a ton of other screen mash-ups.
    It was almost impossible to see most of the underlying screen - but I could just see the first letter "M" (of "Manage Attachments") and clicking on that achieved the desired result

    we seem to be hanging on by our fingernails!

    And now I get this gobbledygook when I click on "View Forum Posts"

    Deprecated.jpg

    I tried to paste the text into this post, and then fell foul of the forum firewall so sent you all a picture instead

    Many of the Buttons and similar features etc. have been exhibiting similar garbage giving similar issues since the start of the current Hiccup around MidDay( English time ) Today
    Generally starting out from the Home side http://www.excelforum.com/ http://imgur.com/CvCextI and navigating from there is reasonably well behaved.

    _....Oh_... I notice that currently the Forum Owner is reviewing this Thread_....

    _....EDIT: After a short Break, when the Forum was unavailable, all seems now well

    Another Edit: All is well - comfirmed by Admin:
