I think it's possible it looks that way because of a preference you might have chosen.

There are several preferences that you can choose from the "My Prefs" link. Did you change the skin? Right now I'm using this one (filled in bubble) and it looks fine.

I have noticed that if you tried on other skins, they look like they haven't fully loaded or don't look like a loaded page.

What you have in the picture looks like what I see on my iTouch, so possibly it's on Lo-Fi mode or something like that?

Hmm.. wait a second..

I just noticed how both mom w/ charm and I have 'special' characters in our usernames. "w/" has a slash, I have '[xo]' with brackets. This might not be it but I just made this observation. Jenifer36 has numbers.. hm.
THAT is very possible. There's a third user who had this problem and they had special characters in their name too.

Jenifer36 does not have the same issue the three of you have. She's having a formatting issue, not a blank screen/500 error message issue.

Mom w/ Charm, you mentioned that another family member was having the same problem. Are there non-letter characters in their username?

You said you started seeing the page this way after you changed some settings. Do you remember what they were?

Is it one of the ones dogluver pointed out?

Justin is working on removing the ads. It may take a few days. Some people say they aren't seeing them, so try clearing your cache. If you still see ads, give it a few more days. He may not have fixed that yet.

You're welcome Your sis is not the family member you said had the same problem as you. I'll PM you.

EDIT: [xo] Pop-Tart is right. It's the characters. I've just had another user with a "[" in their name check.

I'll let Justin know and we'll see what he can do on his end.

EXCELLENT observation [xo] Pop-Tart!

Yes Pop-Tart.. EXCELLENT observation!!

It turns out that the following characters (and probably more, but this is what I have so far) are considered "illegal" usernames in Mediawiki:
[
]
/
{
}
|

What I've done is built a function to intercept the username before it is passed to Mediawiki's login function and, if it contains those characters, to bypass the function and leave you logged out of the WIki. You will be able to view everything, but edit nothing. The only way to allow you editing functionality is to have us remove those characters from your usernames.

Wow, I never would have thought of this myself!!!!

@Jenifer36: DogLuver is probably correct, go into your preferences and choose the bottom skin. I also strongly suggest that you upgrade your browser to at least Internet Explorer 7, if not all the way to Internet Explorer 8. IE6 was actually released in 2001, so it's about time to upgrade!!

Surely you can.. I'll do it right away. That's exactly what it is. You'll notice, even before I remove it, you can still access the WIki, but it'll only print your IP address, instead of your username at the top because it is bypassing the login function.

ETA: Also, @[xo] Pop-Tart... if you want to be able to edit... the [ ] is illegal but ( ) isn't, so we can go that route if you want to change yours.
