    yes.. me, too.

    and I accidentally checked both "occasionally" AND "frequently" :eek: It's frequently, ignore my vote for "occasionally. :eek: :eek:

    Usually a refresh fixes it up, but on a few threads, it doesn't help anything.

    I am obviously :p (screen grab is mine)

    Just got it on this reply as well

    The thing is, is that the overlapping only occurs at the top of the page not throughout


    Also after my picture uploaded the colors of the page disappeared. No greys or anything, just white

    Just opened six tabs in Safari 2.0.3 after a restart, and came back with two badly rendered pages. :(

    I haven't gotten any overlapping text using this one.. I'll browse around some more, and if it happens again, I'll post here.

    But, I've loaded 30 or so threads using this theme, and aside from being hard on my eyes, it's fine.
    (oh how I miss the prettiness of the old theme! :p)


    edit:
    should (attached image) be happening?
    Take note of the post count number, too.
    [​IMG]

    also, I can't upload images..

    Somehow the vBulletin 3 skin got turned on, which has reputation and post counts visible...plus the add-to-reputation button. :confused:

    I kind of like the skin though, except for the fact that at the top it says "vBulletin" instead of having the MR header.

    As to the page rendering problems, I've had them happen a few times but only in one forum...I just can't remember which it was. I want to say either private or picture gallery...I'll wait and see if it happens again.

    Edit: I think that image uploading doesn't work in the VB 3 skin. I tried it. Plus the reputations are funny. And I have a star. :D

    ah... ya, image uploading wont' work on the default theme for now.

    No reports of screwed up text in the default theme? I've rebuilt the some of the templates on the regular side.

    If you feel brave, you can try going back to the "normal" macrumors theme:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/index.php?styleid=16

    and let me know if the problems are still there.

    I tried to go back to my control panel to edit options, because this HUGE FONT is too huge for me. :p

    Rendered badly..

    Not for me. ...But for the few seconds I tried changing my theme to vbulletin 3, your attach window was empty. I switched back to the forum default and it works fine again.

    Safari 2.0.3, build version 417.9.3 here. I'm as up-to-date as Software Updater will let me be, and I have no extras installed. I get quite frequent problems (although it's not that much of a bother to just refresh the page). :)
