I tried to get in there in the old Academy, a few times with Netscape and today with Opera 5. With Netscape I can get no farther than Egypt - the other links never get active. With Opera None of the links even appears - only a message that an error occurred. The only browser that gives no probs at all is IE .

Peter, I can get all 4 campaign walkthroughs. (I think we talked about this before.)

I use IE 5, Windows 98 2nd Ed.

I can't understand why I can access all 4 and you can't.

Wonder if anyone else besides me is getting them?

How can I be so lucky????

I have the same results as Peter. So come on Angels. We know you don't want to be accused of being Microsoft tools. And you certainly don't want to be named as co-defendants in the Microsoft anti-trust suit. The way to avoid this horrible fate is to show your independence and make your site Netscape accessible. The walkthrough accessibility complaint has been on the table for months. The time has come to fix those links.

Yeah - don't worry - nobody wants to sue you for making IE an integral part of the site ;-) We just want options here.

The worst thing about it is that you don't even get a warning that this page is best viewed with IE - then at least you'd be sure it's not due to your wrong preferences or something like that.
Plz angels, we want options.

They're being worked on by other staff members at this time.

Really - they still are as inaccessible as ever.

Hm, this thread seems to have been edited - but nevertheless:
Hi angels, it's simply not professional to have a site not accessible to many ppl on account of the browser they're using and to lie about patching it. - Hope this stings you into doing something about it.

Well, I humbly apologize for flaming at Zen about the accessibility of the walkthroughs for Netscape users - today I viewed the old academy page in IE 5 and I got the same error message - in fact NS still managed to show the hyperlinks, IE skipped that part of the page entirely. That can only mean that I get the wrong version of that page - and some other ppl too. Maybe it's ISP related.
