On my Mac sing Firefox 3.0.8. Safari works fine and the same version of Firefox on the Windows machine is fine as well.

If I click on the log-in/register link, I get a messed up page layout where the boxes to log-in are not selectable and below that a dialog that says the page is not available..

There's a sample of the screen shot below.

This seems to be a very inconvenient forum.

With the amount of files/images that get uploaded here, I sure hope they hired a lot of new mods.

(and I hope they can log in)

Hmmm. If I disable CSS, I can log in. CSS on, no log in.

Actually; only avatars are manually approved by an administrator.

The queue time you see for attachments is the time it takes for the servers to scan the attachments for viruses.  Its an automated process.  I suspect the time it takes to process will improve as things get tweeked.

You can also embed a jpg in the msg instead of doing an attachment.

that doesn't sound right. What's there to scan in a .jpg? there are so few viruses that infect pictures that it's mostly not worth the bother. I doubt that it's an automated process as it would have been over by now and i also doubt that adobe wants to risk the posibility of someone posting illegal/"nasty" stuff on the forums

Thats why I suggested embedding the jpg; that doesnt need scanned.   Attachments get scanned.

Im simpy repeating what John said during the preview about attachments.   It seems logical to me.  It wold be impossible to manually approve all attachments.

The fact that the process is slow today isnt surprising.  It may not even be turned on yet.  Give it some time to get tweaked.

Well if he said so then i guess that that's how it is. I wonder though about the approving, i mean, there aren't that many attachments being uploaded/day, it should be possible to approve all of them within a 24h time period

Thats true; but many would consider that way too long.  And moderators dont want to be opening and approving atachments.    I think once things are tweaked that the automated scan will take a minute or two and mods are then free to just remove the few exceptions rather than checking every one.

Embedded jpgs dont need scanned....

Just because you give it the extension .jpg doesn't mean it is a jpg image.
