    Avatars are a bit bigger? Looks good.

    I think everything in general has increased in size for readability. I've noticed that the default text size is larger (including screenname and avatars).

    Yep, I still have some work to do on those. Hopefully the very first part of this week I'll be done with them.

    I've been testing going back and forth with including text to the threads and conversations in emails to see the impact on the site traffic. Still testing, so you may see the text return in the near future.
    Weird. I never did anything.

    I just went through and fixed them, I believe. Let me know if you see anything else outstanding.

    New photo and video gallery will be coming this week!

    Hey hey, they work!! I see all the new menus. Nice. Great work, Danny!

    Cool. That would be useful (esp. the mpg video that we've reposted over and over).

    What's with all these "robots" online? And they're not just sitting around, they're doing this, reading that. I'll admit I'm clueless, but these robots seem pretty animated.

    Is anyone besides me having trouble with IE9? The forums have disappeared from the main site page, I can only reach them via the "Quick Navigation" popup.

    On a standard IPad mini, I can sign in and enter posts using Chrome but not Safari. Anyone else with this problem?

    You can't sign in at all with Safari? Is it giving you any error or anything? Or is the site formatted badly?

    Lower the zoom on your browser 25%.

    "Lower the zoom on your browser 25%."

    This does not work - it just makes everything smaller. The overlap is still there.

    That's correct. The leftmost character of each line of text is not visible. Will this be fixed?

    I should add that on my work computer with IE8, on the main screen for PriusChat, under the menu bars at the top where a directory of the forums is, I just have a huge empty space. I think the content just does not fit for some reason. It does make navigating a challenge. On my home computer with Chrome, all is normal.

    As a new Prius owner, I do enjoy PriusChat and I have learned a lot here. I just wish it would work better with IE8.

    Sounds like my experience with IE9. I upgraded to IE11 (on Windows 7 32 bit, if that matters), and the site looks normal now. Trying "Compatibility View" didn't change anything in IE9. I guess I can thank PriusChat for pushing me over the brink to update the browser. This being a work machine, I wasn't sure I had the privileges to do that, but it worked.
