We can address cosmetic changes later.  For now, let us know what you're finding, not finding, crashes, search issues, etc.

'Show new replies to your posts.' seems a little slower to respond, but need to check it a little later, to see if it was just the time.

Just got my first 404, while checking out my marathon links. It worked fine on a 2nd try.

Worth the double post.
All 404s from 8:28a till now. Couldn't even get the main forum page to load.

When that happens, I have to go the main filmspotting page and access the forum through there.

Just letting people know, unless Lynch changes the aesthetics up a bit, and assuming we're working with a standard browser width of 1024px, pictures in posts larger than about 680px will be cut off and need a side-scroller. So avoid this by keeping pictures at a width of 680 or below.

For anyone curious as to why there is less width in posts, the margins on the sides of the forum are now larger. Again, maybe Lynch will change this, but it seems a good idea to just keep pictures a bit smaller for now.

Also, I just tested out the search. Without fail it causes 404, but more importantly even if you enter a search and then while it's loading try and go to a different link, the site will still slow to a halt and potentially deliver a 404.

Members, I have turned off the search capability for you since it's consistently crashing the forum for everyone.   If you need a search, contact a mod or admin and we can do it for you. 

We'll continue to work on this issue and see if it can be resolved.
