    Erm. More than 6000 members, and a handful of complaints. Doesn't seem like a high ratio to me. People don't post when something works...

    Maybe so - but at the same time not everyone posts when something fails. Some people are happy to let others complain for them.

    Thats just the point! its not 5 seconds its a minute or more while I ctrl-alt-del end task and get back to where I was before it crashed my browser.

    I'm not saying don't do it, just fix it first so it dosent crash the majority of browsers.....

    @Localzuk: Just to add onto my last post...

    Over 6000 members yet the poll option that has been on the home page for months has only had 114 responses. There is a possible option there for everyone so you can't tell me the poll is aimed at a select few. My point? If so few can be arsed to click twice on a mouse, then surely even fewer can be arsed to type something in a keyboard.

    Well got think time for response we have got ZH/IDG looking into the browser crashing issue.

    Next over the Symantec advert as wholecurrently admins are discussing this we will see the Symantec advert through (only little longer then it goes).

    At same time we are discussing if we ever do it again was gain worth it etc.

    I think we had mixed response to it some didn't mind it some did but take all views into account.

    Think if we lave it at that for know but please be assured we do take everyones view into account.

    Russell

    Just to add to it, im all for this fund raising scheme, but again its locked up IE for me, which made me cross tbh! I'd not have minded if it hadn't locked up but it did and I then lost what I was doing on other parts of the browser.

    Hmm this seems strange.
    I have tweaked it again. I assume you are all still saying the advert which appears in the middle of the screen (not the posts advert in the first post).
    That ad should only appear once per day (uses a cookie) so you shouldnt have multiple problems with it. I personally have not really had issues other then the positioning one with any browser I use.

    I don't visit the main page, so I've not seen it, I just use http://www.edugeek.net/forums/search.php?do=getnew

    As for the popup, I've not seen them either, but then I'm using Safari each morning to browse.
