Apropos of nothing, we seem to have made a modest success of the changeover.
The only thing 'down' are registrations, because we now manually vet each application and reject spammers in advance. There hasn't been a single spam post since the re-launch (that I've seen). The 'active users' increase is a particular success as with spammers binned we have 'fewer active members'.
i do miss this feature, and i ll tell you why ... previously on getting a notify a glance at the phone email preview bar (exclusively phone access for a long time by now) would tell me right away whether to visit thread and catch up/pitch in or not bother ... now, i have to preview the email, delete it, open browser and navigate to page via any number of means, only to find its a joker post by some nimrod i couldve lived without ... plus the page visit resets the "new" flag on the thread ready for the next nimrod to come along
In that case I agree, it must've been either a weather balloon or some trick of the light.
And I was mistaken to have thought that the stones were aligned the way I'd said.
Plus, there's no way I was wearing that costume, with my allergies I'd've been sneezing my head off.

I have a theory, based on seeing similar 'jumping' when following an Alert link to a given thread. It goes like this ...
When you click on the link XenForo takes you to the thread and correctly aligns the page display to show the alerted post in a specific position therein.
If there are late-arriving chunks of material (e.g., remote-linked images) included within that same page, this initial positioning is thrown off as those new chunks are inserted into the overall page display (including portions of the page originally presented as off-screen on your device).
From the user's vantage, the page appears to jump upward / downward depending on where the delayed chunks are finally inserted on the page.
