We rolled out a major, but mostly behind-the-scenes update this morning. The biggest difference you should see is that the website appears wider on your computer.

If you see more changes than that - and they're interfering with your enjoyment of the site - you may need to clear your cache to see the site as it truly appears now.

If you don't know how to do this, this link should help: How to Clear Internet Cache in Every Major Browser (lifewire.com) . You can also search online for directions on how to clear the cache for your browser of choice.

If you're still having issues, feel free to let us know, as always. We're here to make your experience here an enjoyable one.

Ohhhh... so THAT is what's going on.

I just noticed a weird thing where the site is now wider than the window (no matter how I resize it). But there's nothing outside of the window space. I just scroll to the right and get a thin black bar.

Not a problem. Just a "Huh... that's weird."

Yep, that’s the big news. Should things look different, clearing the cache should get things back to normal. We made some changes on the back end that you likely will never notice. 

And thank you, everyone, for joining us.

Everyone wants to see *their* avatar animated. No one wants to see everyone else's avatar animated.

The "Last Post" button works 1 out of every 10 times now. Cache cleared, site reloaded, still bugging.

Thanks. We can check on that.

Also, no plans at the moment for animated avatars.

What's that? You want the site in Comic Sans?

Say no more!

Hey there! That sounds like a bummer. Can you give me an example of where this occurs (link) and how you're viewing it (i.e. computer, phone, tablet, etc.).

I can't even clear my head, how might you expect me to be able to clear my cache?

I find bills and kids do a pretty good jobs of clearing out my cash with minimal effort.

I noticed the quote reply edit buttons on my phone were bigger yesterday, but deskstop looks the same.  Let's clear some cash, I mean cache, and see.

If you haven't watched these SNL skits about Papyrus and you are a font dork, then you haven't lived. On topic: Pay close attention at the end of the first one:
