Using the latest version of Netscape Navigator, and an iMac, things are looking pretty good now. Font sizes are fine, screen layout is the way it 'should" look. Only issue I have is with the disappearence of the dropdown menues when you rollover the section headers i.e. climb, bike etc. They used not pop up on my iMac ever, but used to appear on my g/f's PC (evil machine!). Now they don't appear anywhere, but you're aware of this already.

That issue has been fixed, it was a bad search option in my browser detection. If you still see it persist (or anyone for that matter) please let me know.

P.S. All NON IE browsers will not have dropdowns, they will just have menu's on the left where the green bar (sub-menu title) is a link sometimes (depends on its purpose).

So for example, when you click on the "Discussion" tab, it brings you directly into the discussion forum.

when i come through the main page, the buttons work. I am amazed. However, i don't really think it is very intuitive: you get a set of three or four threads, and i would not realize i have the option for the discussion as a whole as well as the quick jump to the threads without your telling me first. And how am i supposed to know which buttons work and which dont?

jumping from forum to forum still doesnt work; in that you lose the "new" threads and have to figure out what they might be yourself...

Improvements noted and appreciated. Especially the "discussion" link on the main page. Too bad the drop-downs don't work.

Another bug. When replying to a post, you choose a snazzy option like "blue text" in the quick-pick box below the reply text window. Suddenly, all of your text dissappears. My long, erudite reply gone, all gone. It was sad. I cried.

Back to the dark side...

OK first good work, just having site.
I know less than zero about computers, so shouldn't say . . .

Seems much harder than last year to get into discussion ( I Mac ) funny - at work with Wintel disc. comes up easy, just click climb on first gunks screen - doesn't work that way at home with Mac.. ( inter.Expl. , Mac 9. )
click ing on climb - disc. comes up on left, but clicking disc. doesn't bring up the whole group. have to click a thread listed underneith ( long slings ) and then back track to get into main disc. grouping.
And - screen often whites out (not really frozen, the 'back ' selection and others work.) someone said to not drag thru heading, seems to help, but still, even like 5 min. ago - still sometimes white outs very carefully not moving curser thru top ( or bottom ) headings .
But as I said, my computer skills are like zippo.

You should be able to click on the work "Discussion" on the Left Hand menu and go right into the forums.

You need to elaborate a little further on the "whiteout" issue. I didn't understand what you meant by: someone said to not drag thru heading, seems to help
