    Hmm, getting rid of the Arc header also solves the problem of ending up in the middle of the page whenever I move to previous/next page in a thread.

    Are you talking about this?

    3. Clicking on a link sends you to the middle of a thread instead of the top. I think what's happening is that the browser is keeping the scroll position from the previous page. This only happens if you access the forums through www.arcgames.com. It doesn't happen if you go directly to perfectworld.vanillaforums.com.

    1. There is a noticeable delay in render time. I can clearly see a flicker before the browser renders the content of the page.

    2. When I click on a link, it often takes me to the middle of a page instead of the top. I suspect that the browser is remembering my scrollbar position from the previous page.

    1. If I browse the forums starting from www.arcgames.com/en/forums, then sometimes when I left-click on link, I get sent to the middle of the page instead of the top. I suspect that the browser is remembering the position of my scrollbar from the previous page.

    2. There is a noticeable flicker whenever the browser loads a new page. The length of the delay may depend on the speed of your browser's JavaScript engine. I am using Firefox.

    Seconded

    You tell it.

    There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the bank like a drunken fool.

    And can we have Champions Online forums, like soon. You know the 1st born red headed mongrel of a game that came before STO and NW. One with comicbook/superhero theme and most of the population of these forums have never heard of.

    There are games that PWE has had for longer that still don't have their forums yet, either. PWI and Jade Dynasty are the two that come to mind immediately...

    Just remember that Champions isn't the oldest game in the PWE library, and that older doesn't necessarily mean more popular.

    Yup, since I'm on perfectworld.vanillaforums.com, I don't get sent to the middle of the threads.

    This was a fun thread. I'll be a shame to see it drop away.
