Actually, I found his attempt in the back stuck between some gears and sent it out. He should be good, but if he has any trouble let me know. What a weird thing. I will look into what happened.

 This has been happening to me for about 4 days now, if not a bit longer. The page loads normally, 3 seconds later BOOM:



 And I need to refresh or change my zoom. Zooming out isn't really an option for me as I have trouble reading at 125% as is. Seems to only happen if I'm scrolled to the top of the page when it's done loading. It seems like it happens when I hover over the links under the header.

EDIT: It's the drop down menus. They go nuts when I'm zoomed to more than 110% :( I'll just avoid them.

If you're using regular Chrome, maybe you can try Beta Chrome.
https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/beta.html

Beta Chrome is basically the same as the regular but it gets the latest features before they get pushed out to the regular Chrome. It's also just as stable.

Is this only happening when you're zoomed in?

I've been getting a weird error message that says Google Chrome cannot connect to Rockmelon Soda's website at this time. Its happens to a handful of other sites as well and only fixes itself when I restart my laptop.

I get the same thing from time to time, on Chrome.

Regarding a lot of these issues lately: Please do keep in mind that I am not at all in the habit of messing with the software aside from keeping it updated, so any sudden weird issues are probably your browser. I think if you look back through this thread you'll find that a lot of the problems people experience are Chrome's fault.

I am more than happy to help when I can, and this forum is far from perfect, but it is at least pretty constant in being what it is. If you are suddenly having an issue that you were not having yesterday or last week, please do not immediately assume it's the site. Chrome gets updated and changed conatantly, whereas Rockmelon sees little more than the occasional security patch, and is largely exactly the same tech-wise as it was 2 years ago.

I'm not saying don't let me know when there's a problem, I'm just saying that in most of these cases, it's probably browser-related.

 Yeah, it's only when I'm zoomed in. Like I said, I'll just skirt my mouse around them. It's not a real problem, especially since no one else is having it.

It was turned into the "Made My Life Worse" Thread.

Yep, even deviantart.  As long as it's an image-hosting site (sites designed to share images), and not from something like a gaming site, or from sites paid to host their own images.  If it doesn't have a share button of some kind, it's probably not good.

Imgur and Tumblr are probably the #1 most linked images here, actually. I typically bring Tumblr images to Imgur, though, just so I can keep them in my own albums.

Tumblr is totally 100% A-ok.

(sites designed to share images)


This is key. Tumblr, photobucket, yfrog, flickr, all that stuff is cool. I push imgur because it's super reliable and doesn't require an account, but any proper image hosting/sharing service is totally fine.

What's NOT fine is hotlinking from somebody's blog or some random google image result from who knows where. That's how you get malware warnings. If you want a pic from someplace like that, it takes all of 10 seconds to upload it to imgur via url and saves us a ton of headache.

Just make sure it's a legit image host and you're all good. <3

Awesome, thanks.  I sometimes lose track of the specific good sites.

In fairness, I should probably add a list to the FAQ
