Just what we needed, TR.

By AnsuGisalas ·
More clutter.
I'm talking about the "Best of Network" bar - taking up even more of the already woefully reduced vertical center space, despite a veritable abundance of left over sidebar space.
Take it out, please. Kill it.
Dump it next to Hoffa.

I have to agree completely

If they must have it at the very least allow those of us who need the Screen Real Estate to have a way to turn it off.

exactly

by PurpleSkys In reply to re ditto

if i wanted a "toolbar" or whatever the frikkin' thing is, i would have asked for one. I guess that's my point, give folks the option, don't shove it down my throat cause that just makes me pi$$ed-off

And me

Yet more real estate gone.
I know UI experts, who would sack, if not summarily execute whoever you have doing your web design...

Have any of you been to C|NET or Download .com recently?

by seanferd In reply to Just what we needed, TR.

It's creeping in this way, I guess. I've seen this sort of thing before, somewhere.

Oh, and look Ma, no thumbs.

Now we have to thumb it on FB or somewhere else if we enjoy an article?

For years I've been asking for 'Thumbs' to be moved

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Oh, and look Ma, no thumb ...

to the bottom of the article. That way, after I read a useful article, I wouldn't have to remember to scroll back up to the top. I got half my wish, I guess; it was moved, just not where I wanted.

The switch to voting on external sites is going to handicap those who work where social sites are blocked. Of course, there's the assumption those who want to vote have accounts on those external sites. It reminds me of that discussion last week when the new member expected us to join another site for the privilege of responding to his questions.

As to the 'Best of Network' bar, I'm afraid to click it. Partially it's my not knowing what it does and my trained aversion to unexpected toolbars, and partially not wanting to have it record a click and thus encourage such behavior.

And I can't get an answer to the new, annoying, 'Auto Enroll for Alerts to Every Discussion You Post To Regardless of Leaving the 'Subscribe' Button Unchecked' feature.

Agree on every point Palmetto...

by Keighlar In reply to For years I've been askin ...

I knew if I clicked around enough I'd find a topic to add my voice to about that real estate stealing eye sore at the bottom of my screen. I'm also one of those people that opts out of social networking in full - no Twitter, no Facebook, no LinkedIn. Additionally, I now find myself having to go into "My Stuff" to unsubscribe from posts to which I never subscribed in the first place. You would think TR would want to clean up the mess in their back yard before throwing more clutter on the pile.

Yes, that was the first thjing I thought of, actually.

by seanferd In reply to For years I've been askin ...

So i looked to the bottom of the article. :^0

It's a damned good idea to have them at the bottom. But even with the outside site "hey, there's this cool article at TR" - buttons, they ain't got one any longer that I'd use. Some of them are OK, but there is no compelling reason for me to create an account at any of them, certainly not FarceBook.

"As to the 'Best of Network' bar, I'm afraid to click it. "

I don't think it actually does anything at all, at the moment. If it does, I'm certainly not inclined to allow more scripts from more external domains, though I have all C|Net/ See BS properties allowed already. Websites are getting ridiculous with this 50 external domain reference stuff. Every improvement in computer, OS, or browser speed is taken up by this dreck, and its a malware security risk.

"'Auto Enroll for Alerts to Every Discussion You Post To Regardless of Leaving the 'Subscribe' Button Unchecked' feature."

Uh-oh. I'm not aware of this one yet.

Waiting for the TR apologists...
