      Really annoying flashing "printers?"

      Hi Guys

      I am sorry to say i find your little flashing printers by the post really annoying and distracting. It makes viewing unpleasant. I cannot believe i am the only one that thinks this.

      Flashing on websites is one of the worst things possible and i usually don't return to any that adopt those techniques.

      Lets have a nice undistracting site like it used to be please....

      Well that was a waste of money then they are supposedly routers

      The brief we gave the designer was to try to make it as user friendly, and as obvious to non technical people to navigate etc. To me the flashing fitted that role perfectly.

      Will see what we can do.

      so where the signal emits, how about:

      1 bars for 0-x replies
      2 bars for x-y replies
      3 bars for >y replies

      Will look into this, it would be easier for us to just duplicate this skin and then use non animated gifs, that way people can choose which one they want.

      tbh I do like them as it easily shows myself where new threads are, but I can see where DingDong is coming from.

      I find anything moving or flashing on a web page whilst reading annoying including dholdi's avatar.

      My solution is use firefox and the adblock add on and block them from appearing again it's only a matter of right clicking adblock image
