Do You Want To Keep The News Ticker?

Recommended Posts

What's your opinion?

Definitely keep it. It's the first thing I look at when I come to the site and find it incredibly valuable.

I voted no but really I'd just like the site speed back to what it was, Ticker or not.

Btw, anyone who finds it slower tending to read and or post less?

What will everyone do? Race out and get 8mb broadband, or give up?

I voted no, but it took me 3 attempts to click it as the ticker loaded ! :(

I have 8mb so not realy had a problem. Maybe the ticker needs to be enhanced as it does seem to slow down the site.

If it was made as a pop-up in a new window would that improve the speed?

:) I thought it was NTHELL playing up again and had even looked into upgrading over the last few days. Didn't realise it was effecting others.

I've not paid any attention to it and just head straight for the forum.

I could happily live without it.

I bet you are talking about the actual news articles feature on the Homepage, that is excellent. But we are voting on the usless scrolling news ticker at the top of the the webpage page. I certainly find page loading to be alot slower since they introduced it [i'm using bog standard broadband]

Please get rid of it - there is an annoying freeze on every page you visit, while it loads. I'll go to the news blog for news.

Using ZoneAlarm Pro to turn off the ticker I notice an amazing increase in the speed that pages load.

Why didn't you start the poll then? Taking too long for your pages to load was it? Stealing Libitina's thunder are you? :rolleyes:

whats the point of broadband when pages on this site now load at last century dial-up speeds?

Well it's gone now, I think.

Unless I'm looking in the wrong place?

Or maybe something clever on my laptop has removed it for me.
