To start off, my war tab opens upward, not downward, so I can not reach most of it. Others might already know this, but I will go ahead and say that for me this is fixed, when I go to "Full Screen" in my browser, the tab opens right then. For any who may have the same problem try it.

You can go to File>Full Screen I believe, or push F11 depending on your computer system.

Side note F5 reloads the page, for those who do not know, and would like to refresh quick.Oh, and about the War Tab issue.

It happens when you have your screen bigger than it suppose to be. For people who have bigger than average monitors, and use the "zoom" feature to make the screen bigger to fit your screen, this causes the war tab issue for some reason. If you make it smaller it should work when not in full screen mode also. You can also use Ctrl + minus to make your screen smaller, or if you need it bigger ctrl + plus.

Or a least for me, this is how it happen.

I could be wrong but it cost bandwidth or such to have avatars, and flags. All non-mmembers get a avatar and flag/federation flag also/ by default, so either way the bandwidth is used.

No member becomes a full member just to have a avatar. So it does not help get others to join and pay.

You can have a limit on the size, if that is a issue, and the amount of the size limit to keep it the same as the once we already have.

So non-members should be able to upload pictures, you can put limits if needed.

If I am missing something, do feel free to tell me please. Since I would a least like to know why, if my suggestion is going to be told no for something I fail to see.

In which operative system and browser are you viewing Simcountry? What's the layout too - the old plain one or the one with all the gadgets?

Free members can't upload an avatar or a federation flag? Interisting.

Firefox, with the new layout.

But I am pretty sure other users with different browsers, and layouts still have the problem sometimes.

Well I try to upload one of them, it says it is for full members only, when you upload just about anything. I did not see the reason why, so I said something expecting a reason, or a fix. Most likely a reason....but I fail to see it.

Oh, and I said you can use Full Screen to fix it, but the cause was zoom, so undoing it would fix it also. The difference is in full screen you can keep your zoom, and if you undo the zoom you can be in normal view, but then your screen is smaller and harder to see, so you might prefer full screen.

It only does it when you zoom to a certain point, so you might only need to undo it one time, or a couple, so your screen will still be a good size, since you can still use zoom to a certain point. The point depends on your monitor size.

Not much of a computer geek, so thanks for the tip about CTRL + or -
