And my small envelope mail box sticky in the upper right corner, hasn't lit up in a long time. I need to click on it to get my warnings and point deductions.

The PM mail box "light-up" feature was temporarily disabled (site-wide) by S.O. while he's been dealing with some other coding etc on the site. IOW, that's not a glitch.


PS: try reducing the zoom in your browser and the current issues should go away.

It could be you're running the Edge browser with less zoom. I tried using Edge but had it zoomed like I normally do with FF, and I had the same issues with both.

People have reported the same issues with various browsers and OSs; however reducing the zoom has seemed to solve the issues regardless of which browser/OS they run, because the issue is with a transparent overlay (on left screen) from an ad (or set of ads) that's failing to load correctly. Reducing the displayed size of the "active" (iconized) part of the site's pages gets out from under the overlay and so the active icons then work.

Full zoom on Edge works ok

Reduced zoom on FF and CH makes it work ok
Have to reduce zoom very small however

Full zoom on FF and CH using ad blocker -- it works

They'll figure it out

All browsers say that because it is a function internet protocol: http vs. https. Here, they are using http which google started flagging with a warning as being "not secure" because it really isn't secure!

One day, in the future, they are going to block any site that does not use https as a connection. Google may have started it on Chrome but all web browsers show that alert. Nothing you can really do about it.

Ditto!

I thought it was just me. Switching from night to day doesn't fix it either.

The other thing which drives me nuts is the last post in a thread gets shifted to the left, so the first 3-4 characters are on the left are covered. Only does it on my cell. Thought it was just my phone, but does the same thing on my new phone too.

ETA - Flags and stars are working for me. All posts (except this section, but no stars allowed here, right?).

If you're referring to this thread, Business Forum threads don't have stars anyway.

I'm still having the no PM notification issue no matter which platform I log in with; mobile or pc.

Have PMed 2 different mods on a thread I want to do, DTOM and Blaine, but haven't heard from either.

Ever since the ad streams kicked it up a level it bogs down so many of the interactive features that I quit using stars and flags. The ads rendered the mobile experience to be a waste of time to even open discussions, and I won't even sign on with the mobile anymore.

The ads aren't normal. They're invasive to the point that I would never even consider clicking on one, or even buy what they are pushing for that matter.

As soon as I see the slowed load rates I leave because I know the ads are working harder than the content on the site. Prior to the advertisement invasion on ATS, I never had a single problem with any of the ATS functions...

I just went to edit, typed it, and it locked up on me. What I wanted to edit was add that I check another site I use when it locks up, and the other site moves freely... indicating an ATS specific problem. It's no coincidence that the ad gets through and streams with almost zero effort prior to the actual site working. It really makes no sense to have an add on to a site work better than the primary functions of the site.

About 5 times a day, my browser will not render a page on ATS. Edge or Firefox. Click on a link to view a topic, or hit "reply" after posting, and the page goes white. Address bar icons spins, indicating that the resolver is trying it's best. After 45 seconds or so, get a time-out error.

Close browser, try again, and ATS loads and navigates super fast. Until the next freeze-up...which can be 10 minutes later, or 3 hours later. Evening 6pm to 9pm (Central Time) is the worst for me.

Would an https// secure connection help? I've read that browsers are increasingly tough on Non-Secure websites.

It's not just you and I know it's not just us because I've seen other members mention the issue over the last few months.

And notice, it's still not been acknowledged......

I would like it if you made the political posts something that you can either choose to opt into, or that you can choose to not see them

I'm really tired of all the left wing, right wing political posts. I don't think that they are in the tradition of ATS and I come here less frequently then I used to

Thanks for letting me vent

If I was in charge of advertising programming, from the demographics I see...concentrate on Viagra, male depends, and hair restoration creams and vitamins, dental implants and last but not least, industrial strength prostrate medication.
