    OR...hold down the ctrl (control) key and scroll up or down with your wheel on your mouse....piece of cake..Norm's idea is simple too....just a thought...kinda along the same idea as cmica suggested

    While I get that there's a workaround, it does seem like thoughtless design to place images where they can overlap important site features at ANY zoom level...

    Why would you use adblock plus on this website? It takes away revenue from the owner. I wouldn't take away revenue from a close-knit site such as this one. It's just general asshattery.

    Screen size, resolution, zoom settings, font sizes, browser, etc determine how a page is viewed. We can't and won't try to determine all those different variables. Sorry.
    Since you are taking request could you add a spot that will take us to pre panic ammo prices, the cheapest gas in our area and the phone numbers of kinky hot women?

    I'll see what I can do.

    In defense of this site, as TA said it isn't easy. It's not like these guys wrote the code from scratch, saw it, & didn't care.

    vBulletin is a nearly complete product, and you tweak & add things. Sometimes, in the effort to add something, or make an improvement, once something is added, it tweaks the code (location & image) of other things.

    Add to that you are trying to format it in a way that's acceptable to PC's, Macs, iPads, smartphones, etc.

    Not an easy task, and definitely not easy when it's not a full time job.

    Is it just me...or are a large portion of us operating with short fuses on here lately, myself included? I think there is something in the water supply!

    When Norm rolls up in his Bugatti with the "SGN-1" vanity plates...then I will start bitching about site features...in the meantime...thanks to Norm for creating this site which...at the moment...I am doing my best not to get banned from due to my expansive vocabulary and sharp tongue due to the water supply contamination. Anyone have a Katadyn they want to throw up as a PIF?

    Re: Suggest moving advertising

    yes it is nice that norm has provided us with this great site, and yes its like something is in the water shortening fuses,but as we get more new members or hope to, we get new ideas and sugesstions,but it seems the easiest way to handle it is to bark at people or just plain ban them, as in a similar thread for a suggestion ,a reply was made hey don't come into my house and say you don't like the way the furniture is arranged. well the way I look at it,there is only one owner, the rest of us are just renters, and yes we do have the right to say hey the fridge quit working or whatever.o.k. I can put a 2x4 under it fill it with ice and get by. but maybe it is time for upgrades or rearraggements, i'm sure we would all pitch in for this, do we need to hire someone to do this or just a software or server problem, these things are fixable, yes even the 3 character search , any time you want to try this let us know, we can come together to fix this or any other problem. feel free to chime in. just my 2 cents.
