Hi All
Just noticed this happening the last couple of days,when i click on helproom forum all the posts appear then dissapear for about half a second and then re-appear,it dosen't happen when i open a thread but as soon as i click back to helproom same again.

Anything to worry about? (xp home)

Happens to me too, so it's nothing to worry about.

I'm not certain BUT I'm quite sure that the page is meant to do that. I think it continuosly reloads itself so that you do not constantly see old threads at the top.

Nothing to worry about. It happens occasionally when refreshing a page or moving to a new thread. I think it's to do with the adverts loading. Just a quick flash on the page is what I think your seeing, the same as most of us do.

am assuming it is the site "catching upo with itself" "so to speak"....the "traffic" on the site is mindboggling.........and page content changes RAPIDLY.....are you "refreshing " each time too...???

  stalion 22:10 20 May 2004

you have to refresh to get the updated page

someone has flashed the forum instead of their bios lol

if you dont "refresh" each time, then you will only get the SAME "old" page each time...I discovered THAT the HARD way when nothign appeared that I had psoted, and wondered where it had "gone to in cyberspace"..."refresh "keeps the pages "up to speed."on your computer.........

Ok Cheers Guy's

It's just that iv'e only noticed it the last couple of days,and i can't stand it when i ain't got nothing to worry about:-))

Sorry, I meant to say that the page automatically refreshed to get the updated page.

PS - how did you make the writing bold? I've tried HTML but it doesn't work.
