Ah, I think I am getting it. Apparently Chrome messes about with Window scaling depending on whether you are on your screen resolution. I suspect you are either using a really high resolution one, or a really low one (don't know which way around makes things toosmall as opposed to too large). I suspect it is because I switched the box size to a % of the window rather than a fixed width.

I think perhaps tomorrow I will back out the PP changes. I may need to find a different way to do it.

That was kind of what I guessed. Good for you it's not actually a problem you have to deal with.

I do love the arrows so perhaps this is my last retro game.

That was my first thought, but I have the same thing happen to me on the new map.

Eliminate the PP option.
Instead do:
Add new message channel Public Press.
Add an option to inbox "All received messages".
Add a toggle option "Display/ Not display message content".
Add an option on Compose Message: anon checkbox (only available for PP messages).

To see PP as you do now select the first 3 options.

To send a PP message, compose as you currently compose normal messages, selecting PP as the destination and ticking the Anon tickbox or not.

Benefits:
One less UI to manage across the various platform combos.
Ability to display all incoming messages that is currently lacking.
Ability to search for text strings in expanded message content.
Ability to filter PP messages that is currently lacking.

I believe Ihave sorted at least the reported PP problens, so Ihave kept the changes in.

I see where you are coming from CA. Make the PP just another message folder. But the problem is that then you lose the overall flow of the PP which I think would be a shame. Basically if we made the PP just another message folder, instead of seeing all the PP as one long visual stream, you would be viewing each post one at a time. It would lose all continuity in my opinion.

I guess you missed

This feature also makes the "flow" view available in non-PP threads.

And adds the ability to filter PP by sender which would be SO useful in PPO games.

Frankly I confess I didn't understand it :) . I'm still not sure I do. I think you are saying that you have three buttons or checkboxes or something, and if you select all three you see not a list of messages but a list of message content all melded together. I sort of get it, but that sounds much more complicated than clicking once as you do today to see the PP. But it is certainly something that could be considered as a future Suggestion.

You would access PP from the Messages interface by selecting a new inbox channel called PP. This would open up the familiar list of messages headers just like the country-based list does, allowing you to see which messages are unread and to select any individual message to see the content.

Ticking a "display message content" expands the list to show interleaved messages contents just like the current PP. This would be a new function for the messages interface but everything else should already be there. And it would be useful for the normal country message lists as well.

You would not need special PP email notifications any more as these would be handled the same way as the current message notifications.

Thanks for considering this for a future enhancement.
