    GIVE FEEDBACK - Love or Hate It ????
    That darned thing ruins it for me..

    Covers up text and user info...

    Put an X on it to make it go away or something...

    Thoughts?

    Not sure what you are referring to JImmy, but I moved your thread from Midnight Cafe to the ABW Suggestions and Problems forum.

    He's referring to the blue Give Feedback button on the left side of the page that covers about 1/2 inch of every page you're on.

    So, deal with it!

    I see it but on my Mac w/FF it doesn't block anything, it just sticks out on the side, so ..... I personally do not care, but I would be OUTRAGED if it blocked part of the actual page. as some people are complaining about.

    I'm using IE8, and it doesn't obscure anything.

    With a relatively wide window, here's what it looks like for me:



    With a narrow window, it compresses somewhat but I still can't cover RemodelingGuy up:



    The image is only 39 pixels wide.

    "Couldn't Care Less" I guess. I will just take some getting used to, that's all. Though it would be really nice if some of the colors could be adjusted so that text/links (stuff to read) and borders/outlines (stuff to look at) would be offset from one another.

    It doesn't cover any information, though it does overlap the shadow/border of the main content area by a couple of pixels. If it's actually covering up user information, then there's probably a rendering issue with your specific browser. Michael's right, it's only 39 pixels, and the main content has more than 39 pixels between the shadow, the border, and the margin before you get to the user information, even at the window's... er... squishiest... display.

    Glad it's gone. That's a basic usability no no. CJ used to have something like that. Even what I'm seeing more sites using, looks like some toolbar floating on the bottom of the screen. Those are annoying too.
