    Is it just me or has the front page gone to plain text like the mobile version. Seems to happen both on my mac and iPod.

    Probably just me though..

    I just noticed this, but then refreshed and it's normal now. Probably something wonky with loading the CSS file.

    I'm seeing it too. A refresh brings back the normal page. Probably a temporary thing that we'll read about tomorrow. Wait a moment, isn't tomorrow tuesday? Perhaps MR is getting something ready for a huge Apple announcement? :rolleyes:

    All I know, is that today MR has made Safari less snappy. :D

    Happened to me earlier on my iPod, a simple refresh fixed it.

    It's happened to me a couple times, but like for everyone else, a refresh fixes it.

    It's the http://www.macrumors.com page where all the rumors are posted (well, official rumors - not official, but rumors posted by administrators)

    I just noticed upon clicking on a thread, that the forum is also showing up in a real dark grey? I hit back before really registering this, but I will try to get a screenshot of this...

    Yes, the stylesheet is definitely not loading occasionally. As myriad others have stated, a refresh fixes.

    Slashdot put a link to MacRumors today.

    That usually generates enough traffic to destroy mortal sites. MR looks like it took the beating with only a loss of the CSS.

    That's impressive, I'd like to see what the bandwidth bill looks like the day before, the day of, and the day after a slashdotting.

    I mean that might be the case....

    but SlashDot has mentioned MacRumors a couple times...

    EDIT: Sorry to the poster below, I didn't see Doctor Q's merging..

    I might be crazy, but I seems to recall a job posting months ago here for someone to make the website more modern / redesign. Perhaps they are doing some type of a switch over for an upcoming launch. Would make sense, given WWDC will bring massive traffic to this site.

    Wishful thinking! But that'd be nice!
