I have an odd problem.

Every time I load the site, some of the images don't load. About half are there, the other half are not. Sometimes, some of the image loads but some of it is still there. It happens probably 75% of the time I load a page, and it has only been going on for about a week. Also, sometimes on the main forum page the style doesn't show up. It is just times new roman or something like that with a while background.

Any Suggestions?

Same with me, except I think we get different broken images

Try loading the site with a proxy server until it fixes itself, that works for me. I had this error like half a year ago, after awhile it dissappeared, but now it returned. It may seem like a weird suggestion but when I tried many different browsers with the same error. I tried a proxy server. Generally I do not load the site using a proxy server, but on pages like "February 2008 Desktops" or screenshots I load it using a proxy server.

Just so you know, the image I attached doesn't load for me.

I have noticed that too. On my pc the site works fine with Firefox or Internet Explorer. But on my dads notebook, it doesnt matter wich browser I use, also tried Opera and Safari, the layout is always broken...

Odd that lots of people are getting this at once... Its normally causes by your browser not downloading the CSS file. Check your firewall/anti-virus settings as these can often have an effect. Either that or you have accidentally blocked images from certain folders of betaarchive.

10 long years, frig the scene anymore.

Kids think they have deep in sources at the age of 12, why bother caring when no one receives respect anymore, they assume bullcrap, but that's all they are.

I have had this problem personally, and clearing all of the cache, site cookies etc and re-opening the browser solves the problem. The issue is with the browser, not the website. My browser clears the cache every time I close the window so I can verify that my browser is downloading the CSS file again.

Quick question to everyone with problems, which browser are you using?

Have you tried clearing the cache and the betaarchive cookies?

I use K-Meleon, but I have had this error on Opera and Safari (Windows) as well. I also do not use any antivirus\firewall software and I tried clearing my cookies and cache.
