I can't see any posts in the chat, nor any numbers on the 'steer' page, no names on the leaderboard etc.... on the chat I have the names of people who have written something but no posts as such. I've rebooted and cleared my cache and still nothing is happening.... any ideas?

CG x
Sounds to me like a Flash issue. You might need to update. Right click on the Race screen and then on the About Adobe link... if you need to update Flash it will tell you what to do.

Otherwise... clearing your Flash Cache can help.

To do that, on race screen, Right Click and then select Global Settings and then delete.

... Adobe doesn't need to be updated apparently. How do I clear the flash cache? I've done all the others ......
I gave you the instructions for Flash Cache at the bottom of the first post :-)

Sorry.. have been out/away from pc!!

Am asking in kerguelen chat for you...

I've done it all and nothing is working still. It's only on SOL
Have you tried logging on through the SOL Classic Client and then if all is OK, changing the end of the url from ?version=classic to ?beta=true ....

hope hmm or someone sees the links to this thread!
CG has something recently changed on your PC? Such as loading updates?
Might try reinstalling Flash to see if that helps.
Another idea might be just try a different browser such as Chrome.
Typically if you clear the IE cache, and reboot it should clear up.
I've seen something similar once but then it went away. Not sure what happened.

What is:
- your machine
- what OS do you use
- what browser do you use

Everything gets done by not doing anything!
Another thought, and not sure if it's possible, but could the font color in the browser or flash be set to the background color. Meaning both set to white?

Just a thought, not sure how that could happen or if it's possible.
What browser? (what OS)? Does it happen in other browsers? Can you select the invisible text, or is not there rather than just invisible? Could you post a Screenshot? have you done anything with fonts recently (added new fonts, or something)?

Iceland TIMED Race 2023
Welcome to Iceland, where the weather is chilly but there are plenty of volcanoes and beaches to admire along Iceland's beautiful south coast. In fact, our first TIMED race of this year will take us on a 150nm eastbound trip in quick Orange Cats from the Vestmannaeyjaber archipalego to the Stokksnes peninsula. Just mind to enjoy the view from a distance and avoid the temptation to BBQ on the pristine beaches!

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
