    It not *really* a site problem, but it is a petpeeve. Everytime I click on a thread to load it, a few seconds later I'm ripped away from what I am reading by a slow loading signature banner. Then I have to rescroll back up to the thread I'm reading. There has been times I needed to rescroll up four or five times before the whole page is loaded.

    I don't have this problem with other forums I visit. I'm not really sure if there is a coded focus() somewhere for the banners or not, but its slightly angering. I know a lot of you guys and gals put a lot of work into your banners and avatars, and I appreciate that, but most of the time I just really want to read whats in the post, not check out the banners.

    Just kind of sharing my thoughts. And if anyone knows how to possibly fix this on my end, I would worship you greatly for at least 10 minutes :)

    You can go into your User Control Panel, under "Thread Display Options" uncheck the boxes to display avatar, signatures, and images.

    That should do the trick.

    You sure its not the forum jumping to the last post? I dont think images would make the forum jump around.

    Thanks Kcnycheif, I disabled banners from there and its much better!

    It will still do a jump back down once in awhile, but it nowhere near as bad now.

    It jumps for me as well as the page changes height from the images filling after loading. I like the images so have to deal with it, but if you don't simply disallow them to show viw your CP.
