View Full Version : Scrollism - is it goning to get fixed soon???
07-15-2004, 08:28 PM
I'm finding I like this forum more & more (specially since I got banned elsehwere ;) ).
But my big problem is with the scrollism...usability wise on my work screen, it's an issue for me - 1024 by 768, 17" monitor.
At home, it's a non issue, becuase I surf with a 19" monitor, and have it set for the next size up (forget the numbers off hand).
What about the rest of u? Is this forum easy to use or a nightmare to navigate?

I find it irritating, but I've mentioned it before. Personally, I think that designing for very high resolutions (and huge download) is a mistake that assumes a lot.

>>1024 by 768, 17" monitor.
That's what I'm using now, and there's no scrollism. There was at 800x600.
Hey Jeremy, why don't you start a poll to see what resolutions people are using?

If you do such a survey, Jeremy, make sure you ask them:
- what browser they are using
- what size windows they use within their full screen
- whether it's PC or Mac
- what toolbars they use and where they put them
All of these may cut down the useable area within which to see a downloaded web page.
I'm still poking at the Powers That Be hoping to get this addressed. Thanks for your patience! :)
Haven't abandoned the cause folks. Still trying to make the "squeaky wheel" strategy work. May have to come up with a Plan B soon. Keep the faith! :o

I'm using a 17" LCD monitor that I have set at 1024 by 768 (because 1280x1024 is too tiny), and I have scrollism too. I thought it was just me, because I'm also using an Office toolbar on the right.
Personally, I think that designing for very high resolutions (and huge download) is a mistake that assumes a lot.
Someone should take the folks at Jupitermedia aside and clue them in.... They emailed out a list of events at SES that was too wide to print. That really takes forethought. :rolleyes:
It's a tribute to Danny and Chris, by the way, that I even accept Jupitermedia emails.

SBC/Yahoo webmail filters it out, I've had to keep giving the OK so the mail wouldn't automatically get sent to the bulk folder.
I forgot that existed! Robert, you do the talking dog and paperclip too? ;)

There's a talking dog?

FYI, I mentioned the scroll problem to Jupiter today. Fair to say, it's not something we're going to get to this week with SES. But I'm pushing. Heck, we're hoping to finally get SearchDay made lighter, as well :)

Excellent! I had given up hope. :-)

No scollism - using XP, 800x600, Firefox - no toolbars.

Oh my gosh, it's gone. Totally. Except for the Reply to Thread page. Nice.

yep, we made fixing it a priority this week - the tech team was back and forth a ton on it in the last 24 hours - so kudos to them!
we're still finding a few issues here and there that are contributing to it - so if you happen to find a thread or instance where it is happening again, please screenshot and/or post the url & PM me on it.
NOTE: (ahem, NFFC;) one of the things causing this is excessively long Custom User Titles appearing below usernames - rather than creating a character limit on those, we're hoping to wrap the text using a hack, so bear with us a little longer, or shorten the titles until we can get it done;)
