    yup, but im getting a mail for every single reply, before i've even visited again...

    Random example if 3 people replied to this before i visit it again i'd get about 3 notify e-mails telling me theres been a new post

    I do subscribe to threads but I thought that's the way it worked.

    it always used to only send one reply until i visited the post, so there could be 5 replies, but i only receive one mail. Then once i visited, if there where more replies THEN it would send another mail.
    It's not a huge problem, just something i noticed :)

    Example, Word Association Thread...

    Ok
    Just thought i'd mention it, as it can't be good for the server load/bandwidth throwing out e-mails every second

    I don't use it so don't know how it works or how it is supposed to work, I will have to read up on it.

    It could be down to the timeout on your online status or anything... or it could be down to teh slightly hightened server load that I think UKS are working on.

    Tried optimising, it runs fast n smooth in uLead, then once saved it runs just like the one above, all slow.

    I think i'll stick with my current avatar for now (dancing banana guy owns :p )

    Thats the frame rate... try messing around with it.. say 7 or 15...
    24 frames is how tv is displayed...but just mess around with what you think is right.

    Mine keeps goin on n off!
    i think its because im idling on the site/forum more these days so the server thinks i've viewed the new posts as im "online"
