Slow again!
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Speed seems OK these days.
But I have a question about PMs.
When I send a PM, it will sometimes stay quite long in the OUTBOOK and will be sent only after some time. This happens even if the person I PM is online.
And sometimes the process is very fast. What can explain that?

Hi CD :wave:
Your message stays in the outbox till the person accesses the message. Got it? :-|

Sorry I am a bit slow today... You mean the person gets a notice immediately when I send it, but it will appear in my sentbox only when it was opened?

Yes Sir! Sometimes though when the site lags, new message alert may lag as well.

I would have a request that others might find also useful...

On the right hand corner of the screen are these options...

Would it be possible to have the same at the bottom of the screen? I have the impression that I spend my time scrolling up and down...

I see a little 'back to top' link just under my avatar that seems to have newly appeared. That helps a little. :)
