News scroll on WBF Laws web page
Posted 2012-April-05, 08:34
I'm sure most of us consult the WBF Laws web site frequently when participating in these forums: http://www.worldbrid...ternational.asp
I just sent an email to the webmaster asking for a way to stop that stupid scrolling news box in the top right corner. It's extremely distracting when you're trying to read the Laws. I'd like to encourage others to complain as well.
My workaround is to move the window over to the right of the screen, so that the right sidebar is off the screen; nothing in that column is important (the rest of the column is just links to other web sites). But it's a PITA having to do this all the time. It also makes the scroll bar inaccessible, but I have a scroll wheel on my mouse for that.

I have mentioned frequently that if it moves, it dies - at least on my screen. This is step 1 for me.

But I just figured out that Chrome allows me to enable it by default, and disable it on specific sites (or vice versa). So I added a block for www.worldbridge.org. Thanks for the idea.

While there are these workarounds, I still think they should just get rid of it, and encourage others to complain.
