Text instead of Icons

Just now my forum pages all have text printed out instead of showing icons (e.g. BoldItalicUnderline Go to your last post, etc.). Problem may be on my end, but I thought I'd report it.

Al, others are reporting similar problems. We're trying to figure out what's going on.

Going to the green version (version 2) solved the problem for me.

Going green solved it, but it isn't easy being green, because the banners take up a little more space.*

*P.S. I solved this with some "ad" blocking of some of the images.

I like blue better, too. But I'm green. You're right - - it isn't easy being green, as Kermit told us. It saps all the color out of the avatars IMO.

We're looking at this; hopefully it'll be resolved soon. Can't help you with the green slime though. Have you considered solvents or maybe low wattage light bulbs (out of sight....)?

Same problem with me. I changed to the new skin and it resolved, so the 1.0 skin might be where the problem lies.
