I was away for a few days
i came back to discover a new skin
im happy to see it couse this brings individualism to our boards
the thing that bothers me is the banner (annoy's is a better word)
dont get me wrong
overall the thing is good
but the clip is played every time a requests is made (a new post ect..)
this is more then annoying
i have 2 remedies for that issue
one is to simply replace the swf with a jpg of the same content
to set a cookie with a 24hour validation period so when a user enters the board for the 1st time the swf is played and every other time the jpg is shown
i agree. that, or replace it with the leaderboard a*d as before.
I had my speakers turned all the way up because I was listening to music, and the sound scared the hell out of me!I loathe websites when they use such sound effects.
as far as i know some of you including me still see the flash banner (or rather hear it)
and some of you see the GIF
i dont have IPS's files to look into then and back my thesis up but i reckon that is the issue
I use FireFox 1.0 and I get the GIF. It is much better now.
