How do you delete a post, since the site has changed, I feel like I've developed a mental disability.Can't you just make it the way it was before. What was wrong with the fonts before? now they are huge and you have to constantly scroll to read things. and things are screwed up page wise.

If you're using a PC, hold down the control key and press the + or - key until the display is to your liking
The change was made to adopt a newer version of the bulletin board software that will correct other shortcomings.
Please be patient as our web support team sort through the upgrade.

Greg, Sure that changes the page size but does nothing for the Font size. If I change it to a 14 size font I have six inches of black on each side of the page and everything is still crowded together, is this going to be fixed with this new software. And I have also noticed some interesting things with the daily digest size, it used to be fine with my pc or tablet and one was so small I couldn't read it, what is trying to be accomplished here? What were the issues that are trying to be fixed.

Paul - periodic software updates are necessary as older versions are not supported by the providers forever, and there's new features as well to enhance the user experience. Sort of like Microsoft wanting to sunset XP even though there are still millions using it.
With that being said, all the problems you are experiencing are not necessarily because of the upgrades taking place - there may be some settings on your computer that would improve your view - I know very little about computers however but I'm not experiencing the difficulties you are describing
PleAse bear with us as more changes are coming

Paul, go to the Main Discussion Forum and, on the second page, scroll down to the subject "New Type and Size" from Ron LaDow. The solution to your problem can be found there, for either MS Explorer or Firefox.

cheers,
Wes

Wes, I figured it out, I am using Chrome and had to go into the settings to change the page font size. It was odd that it changed on its own when others had the same problem, and I never had touched the font settings there, so didn't connect it to a browser problem that everyone with different platforms could experience simultaneously, the mysteries of the internet.
