    Isn't this the point I asked about when I first joined?

    Hi Mac, they were all clumped together in a solid block, not scrolling and all to the left of the page when I looked in earlier so I had to turn them off as it looked a mess, i'll have another look later. I know you weren't keen on them as you found them distracting and I changed the direction of the scrolling to minimise that, are they still bugging you?

    I still find movement distracting but now I'm used to the website layout I quickly move away from the area of movement anyway.... As such, then, the moving section would provide no announcement for me unless the format were sufficiently different to cause me to take a look.

    I use several websites on a multi-visit-a-day basis and none of them use moving announcements - that's why I initially found SI uncomfortable. It's just me I know - I'm weird!!

    You must loose your mind on Yahoo or the dictionary sites!

    They can become quite wearisome at times!! But I shouldn't grumble because I get all these services for free, courtesy of the advertisers whose adverts are constantly on the move....

    Gotta be good value

    I gotta be honest, Violet, and say that I do rather like the Homepage without movement.... Thanks, though, for the changes you made earlier
    to lessen my discomfort.

    After I spent my early time looking at the various forums' titles from the home page, and choosing those which are most relevant to my interests, I now find I don't spend many seconds there on any visit to the website.

    I must have become a (bigger?) grouch as I got older....
