    Hi everyone,

    One year after starting a brand new cat forum in the Netherlands I'm curious what you guys are thinking about my forum.

    Please give me feedback and suggestions.

    so many forums...lots with a couple of threads or a couple of posts in them.
    Why make life so hard for users???

    Use prefixes and get rid of 75% of the forums on there...

    Thank you for your feedback.

    It is difficult to reduce the number of forums to a minimum because we get:
    Medical, general information, nutrition, what your cat needs etc etc, each with its own topic ....

    I can honestly say prefixes don't tend to work that well with these types of animal forums. Due to the complexity of animals it's actually more often easier with many forums than using prefixes and concentrate the forum.

    Also "animal people" more than often tend to lack of computer skills which makes the idea of keeping things simple kind of important. Having just clear forum headlines makes it easier for people with limited skills.

    Even so myself would most likely have chosen to use just the main category headlines as forums for initial set up and split them up in to more forums when they've grown real big.

    @Lindal_Oronar I really like the idea keep up the good work! :)

    @flitigalisa You are absolutely right and very well expressed.
    You can not compare a technical forum with a animal forum, we get different kind a users.
    But @tajhay I've listened to you and have combined a few forums, thanks for advice :)

    You have an inner wrapping element with scroll just shy of being the complete height of the document basically making two scrollbars which can effect certain methods of scrolling and also wastes precious horizontal space.

    Im not positive @Lindal_Oronar but there might be an outdated style property. Do you get this extra scroll bar on UI.Flex by itself?

    @Mike Creuzer I have no outdated style property's, don't know where this extra scroll bar come from.

    No problem @Mike Creuzer , the UI.Flex style is enabled.
    @EQnoble and @melbo If you have time do you want to test this for me with the UI.Flex style?
    Thank you.

    Win 8.1 and Firefox here, still seeing that second scrollbar.

    Even when you selected the UI.Flex style?

    Then it disappears. With UI.Flex style I don't see any second scrollbar.

    @Mike Creuzer
    Style UI.X has no problems with the Welcome Block :)
    So for now it looks like it's a UI.Flex issue
