    Were you by any chance looking at this via the phone Opera Mini browser? Only that happens just the same with me - but on the computer, it's fine.:confused1:

    Try this for a test. Go here:

    http://groups.myspace.com/magnificentg7

    Have a look at the last bulletin from Shaun about Nick at Runcorn as an example...

    Looking at this via Opera - and all other things on both this group and Roy's - it comes out repeated over and over, whilst on the computer, there's no problem.

    nope.. was on opera on pc.. happens sometimes with FF to...

    its because when someone puts a big picture in a comment, myspace inserts a tag that tells ie to make it smaller/control the size of the frames... but opera only recognises proper coding not this half baked rubbish that IE works on, so things like that can happen...

    what people think they are doing putting 800x400 images on peoples comments anyway, i dont know...

    (and that last thing looks fine on opera on pc... duno about phone,... too late to fanny around with the phone... :D)

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    I am getting feckin' sick of this :cursing:

    No one who shouldn't be logging in is logging in (as far as I can tell), the top friends option isn't set to random... I don't have any idea who most of these people are, even!

    FECKFECKFECK. And FECKIN' MYSPACE!

    (off to change this, and the password, now, and swear some more)

    ps - if anyone sees this happen again - wholesale across the board changes like that which don't seem to make sense - pretty please PM me first so I can try to fix this without it being an even bigger deal, thanks!

    Thanks, fixed it already. No idea what happened - when I pressed 'save' it went back to the old configuration. AARGH.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, anyone pm or email me if you see this so I can fix it ASAP...

    myspace my a***!

    hi,

    there's a far superior alternative to myspaz if you're bothered. same sort of thing but works better-probably cos it's less 'popular'.

    here's the link:http://virb.com/

    like i say-if you're bothered....:thumbup1:

    myspace again

    hi,

    can you not set it so that people can only put text in the comments, rather that big adverts for their upcoming gigs or whatever? disable html or something...?

    agree it can get ridiculous with all the crap some people put in there. it says 'comments' after all!
     
  14. telemonster

    telemonster I've got a zappy little nappy

    ok

    you're very welcome!

    so it's you that does the myspace page thing, then...?

    It's helpful to have images in the comments sometimes - people have posted cool pics and flyers for gigs, so we just monitor that. Personally I don't think it's too bad to let people have a chance to talk up a gig... just in case Nick wanted to do the same some day!

    And it's Nick's page but I help out... :biggrin:

    Not ANOTHER one! They seem to be springing up every few months. I still think MySpace is about the best and most accessible. Even then I resisted it for a long time. Now I'd find it hard to give up as a good 70% at least of my work and contact links come via that. But it DOES take up an awful amount of time.

    telemonster I've got a zappy little nappy

    well..

    fair enough. i can understand not wanting to start up from nothing with another site, especially when you've built up a big network and all that....

    but virb IS better!

    and let's not even start on bloomin facebook:cursing:

    Linda Computer stained fingers

    Can you expand?

    I'd be interested to know your opinion of why virb is better please Telemonster.
    Always looking for new things. Like Pauls recommendation of FireFox - brilliant - much faster and more reliable than IE.
    :)

    hi linda,

    even i spend more time on myspace than virb, mainly for the keeping up with 'friends' stuff. but if i'm looking for music, new bands-then it's virb. also, the music player seems to play better than the myspace one. and i like the way it looks. it 'feels' a bit more 'grown up'...

    but if everyone you know is on myspace, then i guess there's a case for myspace... i just find it a bit slow...:nopity:
     
  20. SHAUN I

    SHAUN I It's so clear on the wings of the dawn

    Sometimes it is annoying when bands etc. send unwanted posters concerning upcoming gigs, but there is an option to disable HTML and also to approve comments, I for one spend a lot of time on Myspace and have made some good friends on there that I exchange rare music and DVD's with and also visit, it's great to share a likeminded interest in specialised music not everyone appreciates (i.e for me Harper/Zappa etc.)
    I don't seem to have encountered any problems with the speed on Myspace.

    Shaun.

    P.S. will check it out though,
