I'm going to consider this post a report on the IE6 issues and the recent posts update speed, and will be moderating out reports of any other issues or tangents reporting other issues in the same post. If you have other issues, please create a new post outlining in detail what those issues are along with the usual bit of information we need (browser version, page url, etc)
I will update the css to remove the wild navigation layout issues for IE6 this week. PLEASE DO NOT make subsequent posts asking when or why it is not done yet. I will moderate those immediately.
Those of you using IE6 should prepare to install a later version of IE or switch to a different, newer browser very soon. Support for IE6 will be dropped eventually. We are planning on support only two major revisions of a browser while they hold a significant share of our traffic.
As for the recent posts, vStyler you neglected to let us know which 'recent posts' box you were speaking of. None the less, the recent posts boxes in the right hand columns on our sites are on a caching timeout and will not always reflect the realtime posts on the forums, if you want to get realtime data, use https://forums.wincustomize.com/recent or the /recent page for whatever forum you are browsing.
