The new ATS media banner; slight problem

First off, let me just say that I like the new ATS media portal. I may be the only one with this problem, and I'm not expecting anyone to do anything about it just on my account.

Since I noticed the new thumbnail banner, I've spent more time playing with it than I have reading posts. I run my cursor across it and watch the thumbnails move. Back and forth, up and down, back and forth . I pretend to play the piano on it, hoping to actually hear a tune.

This banner is not good for my add.
I'm going to have to train myself to keep the page lowered to avoid seeing it, lest I will never get to read any threads.

Yes, this post is made with humor, but it's also true. Yeah, I know I'm an oddball.

I have to say I agree. I had the same problem. So, I blocked:

with my firewall. Plus the fact that since each thumbnail loads separately, it really slows down navigation on slow connections.

I kind of agree. It's right in the middle of the page when I load. Maybe put it on a sidebar? Leave that space for the "important thread/forum/information" slot?

I quite like it personally. My only suggestion would be to show most recent, perhaps there could be little buttons, so you could pick most recent/most watched this week/etc something like that to be shown?

Something like the various boxes that appear around ATS with "new topics", "new topics with replies" "top topics" "most flagged".

I could just check the actual media site I guess, but I have enough bookmarks and stuff I check as it is, ATS being one of them, so it would be nice to not have to check another site, and be able to get a rough idea from visiting ATS alone if there is something new on media I would like to watch.

It's all just nitpicking though really, I like the media site, and am not offended by the middle bar on ATS at all.

It's fun!

you can make people dance!

Oh and I'm not ADD so I guess if I was, it would be a lot more distracting than it already is

It's nice to know I'm not the only one with this problem.

If they wouldn't jump they would interested me far less. I think a little of the newness has wore off, but I still occasionally find myself messing with it.

your media bar mind trick has no power over me.
