I love that.

That is too cool. It keeps the threads from being too long and spammy.

Bravo to whoever thought that up !

Sorry, had to see what you were talking about, hence the quote.

I see it now, yep, that's pretty cool!

I wonder, does that mean that longer quotes will be tolerated now?

All the best, kiwi

I thought I had done something wrong too. Maybe they can make special scroll bars that will go with the background? Maybe they could be black and shiny looking?

They would still take up the same amount if not more bandwidth, right?
I don't know, that's why I'm asking.

Looks like the "New and Improved" ATS 2010 is getting closer to roll-out....

I AM JUST TESTING THIS NEW QUOTE BOX WITH THE NEW SCROLL BAR TECHNOLOGY. WOW, IT REALLY WORKS AND I AM SO IMPRESSED THAT I THINK I'M GOING TO NOW SIT HERE AND WRITE YOU ALL A GREAT STORY THAT YOU CAN READ TO YOUR GRAND CHILDREN!

Be advised that this email is being sent as a courtesy towards you to advise you of your options.

This organisation has been secured by an individual who you recently have renegged on pertaining to financial obligations and contractual agreements that you are on record for promisary indemnity towards. It is therefore our obligation to commence immediate propriatary public releases regarding the subject at hand.

We are in possession of contact listings relative to the corporate holdings identified as ********. These contacts include government entities, hotel and casino entities and other corporate entities including restaraunt and escort service indigenous to the Las Vegas area, entities located in the New York area, entities located in the California Area, The Las Vegas Convention And Visitors Authority, The Metropolitan Police Department, The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bank of Belize, and others.

We also know of your interest in the recent litigation on file against Microsoft by Vert***********stems. We are quite confident that the information we are in possession of will be of genuine interest to the lawyers Microsoft has secured to challenge this litigation. It may also be of interest to those lawyers Vert***********stems has involved with this littigation as well.

This includes a plethara of email logs, incriminating imagery, letters written by yourself, and audio content currently being audiably enhanced involving phone messages and other recorded content that specifically and directly were made by you that outline your intentions towards this individual, which amongst other ideologies involve exploitation, death threats, coersion, threats of violence from other named individuals sent by yourself against said individual, property theft, infidelity, and threats of bodily harm. It is also a matter on record that you have been identified and recorded in the activity of the destruction of private property related to this individual and others associated with them.

On a Federal level, these activities constitute everything involved with that which is outlined under the USA Patriot Act of 2001, supported by the Domestic Enhancement Security Act, and violate laws and regulations currently on record and actively enforceable under the Commerce Department, ATF, FCC, SEC, and others. That is the reason why the FBI are being included within this because once the information makes its way acrossed a specific agent's desk you will discover thier effectual interest in your affairs and the violations you are guilty of will manifest themselves irrefutably through recorded fraudulantcies that you have utilised for your benefit, to the detriment of others. You have commited acts of fraud, and undeniably even things worse than that which is understood at this time. Your commercial crimes will be exposed, It is suggested that you cease and desist further activities of this nature at this time.

Furthermore, You have been contacted by this individual recently and demand by them has been made towards you to return all items removed from thier residence by you and your co-conspirator which to date has not been complied with by you. This individual also has made demand of you to make good on your promisary agreements of financial compensation for intellectual properties and other services allocated by you from them that you again to date have not complied with.

Other instances of associated activity include the strong arm robbery of this individual by another of your Co-Conspirators (who recently contacted the aforementioned individual to inform them that the artwork meticulously stolen by you and turned over to them has been benefiting them financially). This instance has initiated legal recourse which will include you as well.

Related activity that has been enacted by you include falsification of legal documents, securities fraud, fictitious identities used by you for financial and business transactions, and the use of this individual's identiy to benefit you within several of these same transactions that was not agreed upon for you to do so by them. We have irrefutable evidence that will identify you as one involved with these activities

These forms of activity no longer are tolerable, nor will it be allowed to continue.

The imagery involving you Mr. Me***** that has been included within this email that has found itself posted to Craigslist and other online entities is genuine and is copyrighted by a corporation you own, proving it's authenticity. We challenge you to prove otherwise. More incriminating evidence associated with the activities outlined within this email will make itself publicly available if you do not comply with the demands made of you by the individual who you know is the subject of your malicious activities. We promise you, without fear of reprocussions directed by yourself or other interferring attemts made by others, that this information is on record and will find itself bringing its attention to those individuals and entities listed above if you do not comply with the demands made of you to return the property that you have stolen from this person, deliver to them - in cash - the monetary forfitures you have renegged upon, as well as cease and desist all further engagements with and against them.

Understand Mr. M****, you have previously been warned not to pursue these matters in the fashion that you currently are. The individual, who is a member of this organisation, who warned you of this should without any doubt in your mind be known as an individual of integrity who follows through with thier promises. That individual is a member of our organisation because we in likemind follow through with our promises as well. Understand too Mr. M**** that this is the negotiation, and if actions neccesitate escallation, things will no longer be negotiable, nor will they have a capacity to be manipulated by yourself or other outside entities of alteration - just compliance by yourself of the consequences provided that we will pursue to the fullest extent the law provides. Do the right thing, and this can all go away Mr. M****.

Have fun - We know that we will.


Well, that was fun, wasn't it

Gotta say its not working on my comp. I'm on Mac Safari... anything to do with it?

I can tell they aren't working right, as there is a white border on the right and bottom where the scroll bars should be.

I'm excited nonetheless, as thats really cool.


edit to add: Well they work I guess, its just when there is nothing to scroll they are un-aesthetically white where the scroller should be.

If I remember correctly, Microsoft has a sort of monopoly on the way browsers show the scroll boxes when it comes to different colors. Hence, they would look black and shiny in IE, but in Firefox (not sure about other browsers) they would appear as they do now. Someone will correct me if I am wrong, I hope.


As for scrollboxes, I never did like them except for when they appear on the side as normal. They also seem unnecessary unless, that is, larger portions of text will now be aloud to be quoted. Over time I have watched the genius of the Overlord shape this forum, so I confide it whatever design he has planned.

Hopefully I'll get used to them, but I've gotta admit I'm not a big fan.

I agree with beebs that they're ugly when the scroll bar isn't needed (when it is needed too, but at least then they have an excuse).

I'm also rather worried about what will happen with nested quotes (nested scrollboxes?
) and in the frequent event that a poster hasn't quite worked out how to use the bbcode quote tags, it'll be even harder to find their commentary ...

edit to change "last poster" to "beebs"

Nested scroll bars look like this

But of course it against the rules to use them anyway



Hate them!!! Now I will get nicked!!

Hopefully this is a test run and the final product will look different once it all comes together.

Hmmmm, I think the border line should be a bit thinner, but remain highlighted as it is. My .02.

I am not a fan either.
It looks messy and cheap.

I would rather not scroll thru anything and suffer for it then bother.

I liked it better before with the italics.

This looks like amateur hour.

Well I can see the obvious benefit of doing quoting this way as it prevents those ridiculously long posts...

However I do find it a bit messy and IMO it should perhaps be a little prettier, but I assume this is just a test thing and we'll have input from somebody on the staff shortly.

Either way nice to see any form of upgrade in preperation for the 2010 rollout..

I am also not a fan of the new scroll boxes, however, my support would go up substantially if they could be greyed, or otherwise dimmed down a bit.

They are way too glaring and bright against the grey background for my eyes.

I like the possibilities they offer for longer quotes, (if that is the purpose) but please, more compatible coloration.

I agree with you. But it seems ATS is finally getting the bugs worked out.

I must be doing something wrong though, it's not working for me. I'm too soon old and too late smart.

After serious consideration I would do 3 things to make the boxes right.

1) I would change the color from white to something more ascetically pleasing.

2) I would make them thinner/skinnier.. they are too fat. They would look much better at half width for the side bar and half height for the bottom bar.

3) I would adjust them so the bars do not show up at all with every quote box, but only when the text inside the quote box is of a certain length.
