I was browsing the forum tonight, and noticed a few oddities. I use FierFox as my main browser, but loaded the forum up in Chrome and it did the exact same thing. I have no idea what it looks like in InternetExplorer, as I removed it from my system. Hopefully it is something simple and localized.

Here are a couple of screen shots from the GeoCoin thread.

No, that's a known bug (at least to me it is) of my forum software. It happens "when certain conditions are met". Just never got around fixing it (since it happens so rarely).

Ok, just thought I would let ya know when I saw it. Guess you can go ahead and delete this thread now, if you wish, it served its purpose, case closed so to speak.

It's one way to format the page so there's a minimum spacing for the buttons to the right of it. Make your browser window smaller and notice that at some point the buttons stop moving left. Instead of just leaving it a blank image, there's a link tag wrapped around it. That, or it used to be a banner that's since been replaced with a blank image.

Exactly. It's actually a spot where I can place a banner but since I never wanted a banner on the main forum page, it just displays an empty image.

If an empty image wasn't invisible what would it look like?

I assume you're asking something like this?
