It's part of the Research Library: we send notifications of new items posted that match items that members have already downloaded. However, we're making sure it's all wrapped into a formal mailing list so we can provide a simple way for everyone to remove themselves from any of these emails.
And how on Earth do you spot rep changes so quickly??
Odd, first two attempts just now worked. First time in months I've seen that page load for me. I guess it's just a load issue then. Not surprising with guys like OP refreshing the page every 5 minutes.
I would like to see the tree at left of the forums anchored to the top of the page rather than the bottom. If I'm looking at a question in the .NET forum and want to switch to one lower down, it often means having to scroll a long way down before the meniu item moves into view.
No, a normal size window on a laptop. It just seems a bit of a pain having to scroll down to get to the bottom entries, when the right hand side is already scrolled far enough. But if other people prefer the current system I'm happy to live with it.
Can it be made into a setting?
When I'm on a tablet its actually a bit disturbing when things jump around and I don't really mind the scrolling very much on real computers.

In case anyone's missed "the Dieting[^]™", I've just discovered a huge amount of spam hidden in the personal forums of various spam-bots. (I suspect I've only scratched the surface, and there's a lot more to be found.)
Since these bots have never posted in any other forum on the site, only the search-engines will ever see it. As a result, some of it has survived for several years.
I think it might help to restrict the use of the personal forum to members who have:
posted in at least one other "public" forum on the site, or in QA;
earned a minimum reputation "score"; and
been a member for more than a month;
It won't be foolproof, but it would probably have stopped most of the spam I've just found.

I would like to add Sandcastle documentation to my PDF File Writer C# Class Library (Version 1.9.1)[^] article. Obviously, I can package it with one of the download files. What I am really interested in is if the help directory can be hosted on Code Project such that programmers can view it in the same way as MS help files.
