Has the layout changed on here?

There's no side bar with all the sub forums on it anymore?

Does anybody have any tips on how to get a better nights sleep. At the end of the day I'm tired, thats not the issue, but I find it difficult to drift off at the best of times.


Depends on your circumstances, really. While there's tips on how to drift off and sleep for longer, there's other factors too such as diet and even the mattress you're sleeping on. There's three things I always suggest to people if they're struggling:

1. No caffeine or food two hours before you intent to fall asleep. Stick to water or decaffinated drinks. No, Dr. Pepper doesn't count.
2. No electronics. Not only does this mean you won't drop your phone on your face in bed, but the light from your devices won't disrupt your melatonin levels.
3. Try to sleep in increments of 90 minutes. Sleep runs in cycles, and your body does most of its repairs and relaxing during the middle cycle (deep R.E.M.). If you set your alarm to go off in the middle of it, you'll feel like sh*t for a good couple of hours.

What browser are you on? You should take a picture of the page. The expand arrow must be there on the page. Also, check if Javascript is turned off for you

I've just turned my laptop on and off and it's back to normal.

I know about the arrows, I've done it by accident before, it's just this time that they weren't there. Thank you though everybody.

Thanks Craig, that's good and practical advice, the point about the electronics before sleep is especially relevant to me.

I think it's relevant to everybody at some point, whether it's browsing your phone before going to sleep or watching TV in bed, they're things we do and they're not so detrimental that we put two and two together. If you're struggling with the change, take a book to bed with you and a glass of water. Not only will this give your eyes a bit of a break, but you'll read a lot more too. Just make sure you don't get too invested, else you'll be blaming your sleepless nights on Kurt Vonnegut instead of Kurt Russell.

Was that dated? I couldn't think of a better example.

Couldn't help myself...I always like to gloat about Vonnegut being a personal friend of my mother.

And to stay on topic kinda; I recently read (one of those differences in generations) an article that cited electronic devices and the social connection of millennials being a serious cause of sleep issues.

So yeah...put the phone or whatever away...disconnect and rest up.

Yes.  We may have many other problems that we share, but not this one.

Andriod users:
When you change your phone language to Arabic, the numbers also change too. Is there's any possible way to keep the numbers the same without changing the language to anything else?

Serious question though: Speaking of a Ban Roulette, did we ever have something like "Making you a moderator for a day" sort of Roulette? I feel like in past someone made a topic on this. It would be hilarious and scary to have such a game in the forums.

Yeah. I think that ms paint contest had mod status as a reward for the day. No power though, just the title.

DERGaming was made admin shortly before his ban also.
