Post wtf is up with typing a message lately?
Whenever I type a message, periodically the message will not scroll down and give me more lines so the text box jumps up and down. it happens when I fill up the entire chat box with text, it's like the auto feed down function isnt working properly or something. Anyone else have this issue? It's done it to me twice now in two days.

I haven't seen that problem. It doesn't sound like something the forums would be doing--that sounds like something your browser. Is it happening on other sites?

Seems to be an IE8 specific thing. I can't duplicate it in Chrome, Safari, or Firefox.

So...you know....download one of them. IE8 sucks.

Well, I know I was able to duplcate it, but I know that the way I duplicated it, I didn't do the first few times. I have a KVM switch that goes between a few different pcs, my scroll lock button will trigger the problem, but I know I did not hit the scroll lock key the first few times this happened to me. I will keep you posted if I can figure it out.

it only happens when I have to scroll down and keep typing longer messages.

It just happened to me, and I did not hit the scroll lock key this time. all I did it hit enter to get to the bottom of the text box, hit a few letters and then enter. now the scrolling is going all wacky and driving me fucking nuts!

You are right, I can't trigger it on Firefox.

ditch IE 8.

Go with a browser that actually tries to use industry standards as much as possible, rather than continually trying to invent their own.

someone has to continually try to raise the bar and enhance/change the standards.

You're right. And that someone in the browser world is Apple at the moment. Webkit (the Safari engine) is the only browser truly pushing the envelope. Firefox is content with "go for the standards" and MS is playing catch up big time.

The standards problems with IE are under the hood--ask any developer what they think of IE and they'll simply cringe.

During the time I've spent developing in action script (Adobe Flash) I've found numerous ways to crash IE, none of which work in Firefox or Chrome.
