    At first I thought it was yet another Safari 4 rendering problem but it happens across all browsers.

    - Broken image links
    - Malformed post boxes
    - Missing Reply, Edit, and Quote buttons
    - Hyperlinks text now white and blending in with the background

    It seems to have been getting worse over the past few hours.

    Ahhh I was going to post something about all my link text turning white, but I figured that was just my problem. It happened a few times yesterday and has been muuuuch worse in the past hour.

    Also: when I read the title of the thread I was hoping to open up to a rant/breakdown.

    I'm using Stainless right now.

    The mods have been doing a fine job lately. It's better off not to get involved at all.

    it has been happening to me a fair bit too, page loading has been getting progressively slow and the little safari thing just spins for minutes at a time sometimes..

    servers getting overloaded maybe?

    It's possible that certain styles are lost or missing. I haven't dug into that much beyond the rendering screwups and missing page parts.

    That is normal whenever you change/add an avatar. It take a while to fully update because the avatars are saved on a different server than the forum. :)

    I see their avatar just fine. The placeholder text does show up time to time though in high load situations.

    We haven't had avatarless MacRumors in some time though. I'm surprised that we managed MWSF and WWDC this year with avatars.

    Server side. Stainless is throwing "Can not connect to host" errors now on some pages.

    Oddly enough MR is running faster than it has done for the past couple of weeks.

    Things are okay in FireFox for me, but the forum is pretty much unusable in Safari.

    I've had these problems on MacRumors under Windows as well and across browsers.

    WebKit, Gecko, and Internet Explorer.

    For the past few days, when I try and click on a User Name, the links (User profile, see more posts etc.) do not appear. While intermittent, it happens quite often.
