Okay, okay so I thought I wouldn't do this like everyone else because sometimes it sounds like self promotion when someone says come and look at my site to get people to buy their wares or sign up... I don't feel that's the proper use of this forum. I do know there are the majority who are wishing to get positive feedback and such a thing is good and beneficial to help better their sites. To use us all as sounding boards and get advice is why we are all here Right??? The Customer service here is the best around and without their help many sites would not be as great as they are. I wish that maybe someday soon I will see others submitting the banners that they make so that we all can see the results.

I have no sign up page and unless you are independently wealthy I don't think you will be bothered by me so don't worry ;))). Please save your kind or unkind responses for here and not my "Contact me" page as that costs cashola ;)

I think I am done tinkering with it for a while and just wondered how things looked to other browsers. I had checked it out with Firefox and IE and they were satisfactory enough for me for now but wondered about the others.

for anyone interested these are links to posts I made with some of the programs and features I used in its creation. I hope somebody will submit something that they made with them soon so that we can all see what they did.

Bad graphics on my end here. Pictured below. Plus your robots and text fils are showing on the bottom left. I don't think they should be showing. Other than that, awesome site!

so the two files I left there temporarily they will be gone soon...

Is the problem with the link showing up on all pages or just one?

I looked and saw on my statistics counter that your resolution is set to the exact same as mine...

Browser: Internet Explorer 7.0
Platform: Windows XP
Screen: 1024x768 32 bpp

I also opened up Internet Explorer 7.0 as well as my Firefox and was not able to replicate it. I have opened it up literally thousands of times the last month and have never seen it like that ever.

I wonder if you can try looking at it again to see if it is just your settings that make it appear so.

Ctrl - or Crtl +

Let me Know please what you see.

Thanks so much

I adjusted the Crtl + and that was it

Your settings are set to see the fonts larger than normal

Much thanks for your input

Could you adjust the setting to normal and see how much of a difference it makes...

Much better and more organized then every which way...

Yes, it appears the same way on your other pages. I wonder if there is another IE7 service pack out....I think it's my system?

I did the ctrl + - and no change. I also just reset my browser settings back to default, no help there either.

hmmm well try the ctrl key and the roller ball on your mouse if you have one...

I think that if you are making a web page your settings should be at normal to ensure that when you preview your changes it looks as others see it but then I could be all messed but and you fine .

Thats I checked with both IE and Firefox so I think I am ok

Maybe if others check it. I've changed the zoom settings in and out, get nothing different. I take it zoom is the same as ctrl + - ?

Looks like I was behind on updates anyway. Glad we got a faster connection now! Installing those and unavailable for awhile. I'll check back later and see how your page loads. Old Air force here btw. :-)
