It seems to go away if text size is reduced in the browser menu.
I have the screenshots.

These are CSS (cascading style-sheet) issues, and are sometime browser dependent.  Let me see if I can fix them, time permitting.  I can always cheat by reducing the length of the main menu, but that is not the right fix.

Thank you for bringing it my attention.  I never see it as I run my machines at higher resolutions.

i think defygravity is using at a much lower resolution-800*600
i have problem with only menu bar which can be easily removed if u remove any of the entities..
i think either recent posts or recent topics-since they are nearly the same 1 can be moved to quick links to solve this problem....

@Ankur, the screenshots I posted are at 1024x768 resolution.

 I have verified that this effect is related to text size. It comes up even at resolution 1280x1024 which is what I am using for this post. (This is Ubuntu linux with Firefox 3.0 browser) Reducing the text size in the browser menu removes this problem.

I experienced this problem earlier today in a WinXP machine with FF and also with IE6 ( Grin )

You want to see this in action, just increase text size in your browser so that all the characters are bigger, and wait for the animation to run through one or two cycles. You can see the bottom part of your window bob up and down rhythmically!!

Moved the "Help" and "My Bookmarks" menu items into the "Quick Links" drop down menu.

Hate to bother you with my persistent hair-splitting but there is still a little something here!! let me try to explain a little better.
It is about the animated text bar that displays the following text:

"The RC India Gems  |  Free ads for all Indian RC shops/outlets/resellers  |  Win a Reflex simulator"

Now, as the bar animates, the displayed text changes. In fact there are 3 different contents displayed in sequence. Of these three, two need just one line each to display, whereas the third needs two lines. This makes the bar temporarily wider during the animation sequence. The screenshots should explain that. This pushes the lower portion of the page down periodically.
I realise this is a minor issue and you would have more important matters to attend to in this forum, but I just wanted to clarify the technicalities. Another reason I mentioned this is that it is not resolution dependent but related to browser preferences. So just in case...
Thanks for your time  Smiley

I see that "Search" being just an option in the main menu is a bit hard to notice, and a "Search Box" would make it more visible.  I will try to add it as time permits.  Thank you for taking the time to suggest this.

Rigged up a "Search Box" on the top right of any page the forum.  Many people suggested that the "Search" menu item in the main menu is a bit hard to notice Smiley

That is easy Wink

Use advanced search (the "lens" icon on the left of the new search box, or you can choose it from menu also).  Then expand the "Choose a board to search in, or search all" link, and it will allow you to choose the boards you want to search in.

why dont we have a separate reviews section on the forum? cars, planes and equipment. Instead of just takling about specs and stuff members can post about advantages,, disadvantages, problems, purchase details,if they have any second thoughts after purchase, spares availability, delicate parts to whtch out for etc...

They can do it in the appropriate boards now itself, just clarify that it is a "Review" topic by mentioning that word in the title itself.  Like this review of a heli :

http://www.rcindia.org/helis/review-hk-450-pro-tt-torque-tube-version/

It makes sense to split content into more boards as needed, but in this case we will need a "Heli review" board, a "Plane review" board, a "Tools & Parts review" board etc, to do justice. I am not in favor of exploding the number of boards that way Wink 

BTW, this is just what I feel on the subject... I do sincerely appreciate your suggestion, and do keep them coming !  Thumbs Up

VTOL - Vertical Take Off & Landing



hey anwar bhaiya just a couple of suggestion that might make the forum look a but more fun attractive and much more.

the forum itself is very good but just a few suggestions

1. i was wondering the white space on both the left side and right side of the page that is left empty. we could have a theme that would be like the base coat on which the whole forum main page sits on just like in the picture i have made orange rectangles just to show the areas.


http://i635.photobucket.com/albums/uu71/Pikle6/Capture.jpg
Suggestions for the RC India forum/website



i could be a weather based theme or festival based theme like now monsoons are approaching so we could have a monsoon theme or any static monthly theme or a theme for a few months and then the next


2. is that we could have the sidebar navigation which would have the latest news, cool threads and articles and new products that have been launched here (yes inspired by rcg)(could be implemented when we have more articles)(we could also have a weather bug somewhere there

just my suggestion as it is the website looks cool enough and i  know its easy for me to just say change this and do that but you do have a job so whenever you get time just would love if you gave a thought to it

I purposefully disabled that feature... I am guilty of vested interest on that one Sad  If everyone chose notifications and notifications have all the details, that would render the forum even more inactive. Hopefully it is not too much trouble for people to log in and check the latest posts (or boards that are of interest to them) once a day at least !

Please allow more than 4 photos to be uploaded at once. If a person is willing to upload more than 20 photos, he will do it! Why force him to break it up in 4s?

Why force him to break it up in 4s?

"Human nature" is one answer Giggle

1.  Forcing to split the photos into groups of four causes the person to split the photos into logical groups.  For example, if I am posting various photos of a build, forcing him to post in groups will subconsciously prompt him to put descriptions/details of each group (for example, he will post the details like "These photos show the tail assembly... note that I used the farthest hole on the servo arm to get maximum throw"!), which he would otherwise not have mentioned Wink

2.  We want to discourage people from posting too many pictures of the same thing from the same angle (photos that are too similar).  There is a cost for storing attachments on the hosting server !

And there is another technical reason.

3.  HTTP uploads ("POST" commands) tend to timeout if there are many attachments and the upload runs for a long time.  This would cause users to get frustrated.

Dear All,

I may sound a little (or a lot) old fashioned as I say this, but can we PLEASE leave the forum JUST the way it is, for now? It is user friendly, fast loading and I guess, the majority of us are happy with JUST THE WAY IT IS. It is a friendly, very personal space to visit.

We are more than a thousand strong, and I guess, we are very happy with the way the things are. No alterations, improvements or changes required at the moment. Change is inevitable, I know, it will come when it is inevitable. IMHO that time hasn't come as yet. I reiterate, IMHO.

Thanks Administrator Sir, for a wonderful job truly well done. I feel, I am not qualified enough to suggest any improvements (especially when they are redundant).

Let it be.

3.  HTTP uploads ("POST" commands) tend to timeout if there are many attachments and the upload runs for a long time.  This would cause users to get frustrated.

It will be more helpful if you can provide RCGroups like upload manager. That uploads one by one in a separate window. I have always had timeout problems when I upload pics from my 10 MP camera as the files were big, though the 4MP camera files upload like a charm. I then had to resize the 10 MP photos and then upload. An upload manager would be helpful Smiley reduces resizing on my end and I can leave that for the server to do (You know more user friendly  Wink )

BTW I still have seen people uploading the same pics in same angle multiple times even with the "4 quota" w/o description. "Human Nature" as it is called  Grin

VC

i somewhat disagree with that

i have been with this website from the very beginning and just thought that the empty space could be utilized and that it would be more flexible and easier to find new articles and all other things anyways it was just a suggestion not an order

so its all up to anwar bhaiya and i love the forum the way it is
