Hi I think I have broked my MN as this no longer follows me down the page, I have looked in the customise bit and cannot see the option.

Help, it is driving me crazy.

Okay come on, I know my grammar was terrible in the above post but still grin

MrsSantasCervix Wed 05-Dec-12 11:47:00

Come on MNHQ!

I'm not MNHQ, but I did manage to turn mine off before. There's an option in customise talk to turn it on or off.

If it's not that, then I have no clue, but bumping grin

Have looked in customise talk but can't see the option. I'll have another look and report back.

They've gone missing - there's lots of us, don't panic it's not just you! Just disappeared yesterday sad

Double checked and definitely can't see option. I'm kind of glad its not just me, as that means its a MN issue not a My Shit Laptop issue. grin

Hello. Sorry for the delay in replying.

The Viewport bar has been taken down. We got shedloads of mail about how much it annoyed folk.

<worries that you're all going to send us annoyed mails now>

The viewport bar was annoying to a lot of us, Helen. But, given that it seems it was also very popular with others, how about a compromise: Re-instate it but have the default setting for it to be OFF. Then those that do want it can turn it ON and the rest of use won't have to hide it (again).

That seems a bit illogical tbh BUT what would be useful would be to find out what specifically folks were using it for. Then maybe we can look at ways to produce that on the site in a less annoying way...

What a joke.

When was this vote passed then MNHQ, I of course assume there was one and I must have missed it because this is unfairness of the HIGHEST order. (Can you tell I'm moody and hormonal - AGAIN)

Um. Mebbe just a bit smile

Obviously, we didn't do it to upset you specifically and personally - though I'm sure it feels that way.

Please tell us what you found useful about it and we'll try to find a way to offer you that in some other way.

Sorry blush

I found it had various uses especially when it comes to tabbed browsing as I can right click and open active convos etc from this bar or when I get bored half way through a thread its a quick click back (as my laptop goes haywire when I press the back key half the time --its a piece of shit--) basically it was a convienience and I can't see why people it bugged, couldn't be arsed to use the settings to switch it off?

MrsSantasCervix Wed 05-Dec-12 16:03:50

Oh and I'm allowed to be hormonal, I'm currently being a baby machine again hehe

Bugger.

I liked that bar. Meant I didn't have to scroll back and forth.

Agree that a good option would be to have it defaulted to off and those f us who use it can turn it on!
