I have recently made the following changes:

- Increased the width of the code box when including code in your posts

- Increased the max file upload size to 2mb.

- Added an Introduce yourself forum. Lets make this place a real community where people get to know one another!

- Added an Access World News section. This is relevant since I intend to make many changes to this site.

- Added the Access World section at the top of the forums and included the Site Suggestions forum in there. The more feedback I get the better.

Glad you have increased the file size limit. This was one of the issues that bugged me. Also the increase of the code box is welcome.

Thanks for the feedback

Jon,

almost everytime a thread of clicked on, I am getting this full screen popup:



I think there's something wrong here. Chrome caught 40 of them earlier today for me. the advertisement agency address in the URL changes everytime too. might want to look into it man! I think everyone's getting this junk.

It's only since the annoying adverts started. It was all ok before.

I get a pop-up that wants to run various things (like Office Data Provider for WBEM) but is blocked - I don't know whether to say yes or not.

is it a virus or a 3rd party advertiser approved by Jon that has gone awry?

For me, I don't get the popups, but IE (8) will crash and then recover itself before some threads will work normally without errors.

The popup should have gone now. A hacker did it. What a pain.

Seems the Introduce yourself section is a hit. Lots of people posting mini bio's about themselves! When I read them, I really do feel like the anonymity of some people is dropping away and a community feel is going up a notch. What do you think?

as long as the advertising revenue hasn't taken a hit, why change it?
