What is going on here...

I am experiencing problems here, I try to go to a particular forum and get this blank screen with a column of options in the middle. Links don't seem to be working right.

Hiccups in the server, perhaps? I was having problems yesterday, but none right now for me. You might try shutting down or signing out and re-logging in.

I was having the exact same issue, I closed internet explorer and opened Google Chrome and all is working ok. Kind of a pain, but it worked.

I have been having problems with the site as well, getting it to load properly. Good thing there are all those high end advertisers on here as that apparently is the only thing we get to see here without having to refresh pages over and over and over........

Yes, I'm also getting tripped up on all the ads (the status bar shows it's the ad link causing the problems). Very frustrating. I don't mind ads being off to the side / top / bottom where I can look at them or choose not to pay attention to them, but when ads start interfering with page display and navigation, that's gone too far. Hopefully Sailnet is well aware of the problem and will fix it a.s.ap.. In the future, Sailnet needs to more thoroughly test their web site changes using all major browser versions before publishing the code changes to the public production site.

in another thread, installing adblock plus was suggested. I installed this package into firefox and have been very happy with the results. While the sponsors need to make a buck, if it makes the site unusable, it is an 'epic fail' as my kids would say.

I dont know what exists for IE, but one could get some immediate satisfaction by
adding fake entries at the end of your hosts file:

127.0.0.1 app.serviceengine.com
127.0.0.1 ad.afy11.net

This will resolve these host names to your local machine and likely quickly ignore those requests. ( this 'hosts' file may be found in the drivers\etc directory under your windows system area )

You just hate to use ad blocker ...That would seem to defeat the purpose. The site needs revenue and without the ad's we may all have to pay to play.... If we all block the ad's nobody supports the advertisers who support us...
