Hey, I've been seeming to get this error a lot recently... what do you guys think the problem is?

Yes, I've seen some overlap too. It appears to happen more often when a member has a pretty large sig, as evan does in this case.

well it's never happened to me. Not even once...and I've seen some pretty damn big sigs (see: some of R.Smith's old sigs x_X)

Maybe it has to do with screen resolution. What screen res are you all running at? I'm 1600x1200.

My display is at 1280 x 1024, and my Mozilla window takes up about 2/3 of the screen, for what it's worth. If I reload when I see the overlap, it goes away.

It's possibly a bug in the Gecko rendering engine Mozilla uses, since I recall Seraphim using said browser as well... I've never gotten that myself.

I've noticed it happening. I believe that the page hasn't finished loading and for some reason the graphics card or directx bodges up on the rendering.

Its only a guess as it doesn't really bother me much - its happened in both opera and IE for me.

There goes anything about it being Mozilla only...

It happens occasionally for me, but it always goes away when the page is reloaded. I use Mozilla 1.7.3 at 800x600 resolution (that will change once I get a better monitor...). I'm guessing it's just a problem of the page being rendered too fast or too slow as it's downloading...
