    Hi, I'm new this forum, but not new to the GPS user community. I've been using GPS units starting years ago with a handheld Garmin eMap. I currently have CoPilot on my tablet, a Garmin 60Csx and a Rosen Primo PII car unit.

    I do have a few questions about this forum:

    1. The forum is very slow, with each typed character taking about one second to appear. A spell check correction can take a minute or two. Is this normal?

    2. The forum is constantly spawning pop-under browser windows. In the last two minutes, nine have appeared. As soon as I delete them, more appear! Is this normal for this forum?

    3. Why the rule to not thank anyone?



    Moved from Members Presentation section to Forum Feedback section.

    Hello mrvivona, welcome to GPS Power.

    1. I can not confirm the slowness you experience. Have you tried another PC or laptop or even another browser?
    2. Until today, I did not experience this. For the first time today (only in the morning, West European time) I experienced these pop-unders too. I can assure you, they are NOT normal for this forum! Since the afternoon, I don't get these pop-unders anymore. Can you confirm?
    3. We prefer to refrain from thanking posts in order to keep the threads free from clutter so they remain concise and easy to read. Gratitude can be expresed by using the Xlosbkb button or the LIKE this post ↑ link instead.

    Thanks...oops, appreciate the quick replies.

    I'm glad to hear the forum server will be upgraded. The slowness was on a high-power PC and showed up on Firefox and MSIE. It's a little better right now, but still slower than other forums I frequent.

    However, I am still getting the numerous pop-ups and pop-unders. I guess they're back already.

    I understand the rule to not post simple "thanks" replies. One thing I have noticed on other forums I frequent that greatly clutters the postings is the tendency of members to quote sometimes multi-paragraph previous posts, even if their answer is just one sentence. I haven't explored this forum enough to see if it happens here.

    This morning I got pop-under again too. Hope it gets fixed soon, as it is very annoying.

    The policy is to only quote the part relevant to the answer, like the two examples in this post.
    Quoting an entire post, just for the sake of quoting it, may get moderated.
