My screen is red, 'only on GW' Is anyone else having this problem, or is there a setting that needs changing?
Makes it hard to read. Toni

Paint!!!! If that's the case, even if it was the best paint known to man, for the principle, I wouldn't buy this stuff!!!
Why, of all places, is this ad on GW? lol. Toni

RE: Red Screen

Gardenweb has home forums is my guess. I don't get it everytime.
If someone pays for an ad in this economy I guess Ivillage accepts it.

It's not just you Toni.

I've gotten the red screen at GW for several days also. On my post at C&S asking GW to make Policy Statement on Deletions, I mentioned it a& asked about it, since I was already posting a question to GW.

The red screen is quite annoying, especially when the little box for you to select the type of paint you're "interested in" blocks the content of posts. It doesn't come up on every page, so hit refresh, and it goes away.

RE: Red Screen

It's annoying, that's for sure. The person who came up with this stupid idea, 'as a sales pitch,' better change careers.

Red screen, Netflix ads pop up everytime I click on a thread, and very slow connection. Not to mention, Page Cannot Be Displayed.

Don't know if it's my service or not. It's not my computer.

Thanks everyone..Let's hope the red and other disruptions stop. Toni

RE: Red Screen

I get the "page cannot be displayed" as well. It makes you think YOU have a problem, but it's this site. I don't get the netflix pop-ups because my pop-up blocker gets them every time.

Joe, I changed settings so pop-ups wouldn't pop. Turned out, everytime I read a thread, I had to click a second box allowing the page to go through. Pain!!

As for Page Cannot Be Displayed...that's a problem with my provider..I should contact AT&T...For what it's worth, 'speed, etc,' we might as well have dial-up. Pay extra money for this? They want me to update to a more expensive package..my bill is high enough. I'm thinking of ridding Caller ID, 3-Way-Calling, etc...I HOPE, AT&T is reading this...
Either that or changing providers! Toni
