I would like you all to decide if the ESPN ticker should stay, go or just be moved to a different location? Normally TG and I discuss these things but since he's not around you all will have the final say this time :bigthumb:

Thoughts?*



*TG ultimately has the final say when he gets back :D

Thanks Capt! This might be something to add as an option then that members can turn off and on from their profile. That way for those who have the slow connections can turn it off b/c it is meant for a high speed connection.

Thanks for the info though.

Unfortunately the colors can't be changed because it's an ESPN thing so it needs to be branded by them...

I like it. But if it would be a problem for users with slower connections, it might be better as an option the user can control.

yeah, this thing isn't very dail up friendly, i remeber when i had dial up, and posted on a forum with this, it would slow everything up, and freeze ****...... so i voted it's got to go, mainly because it'll **** up dial up users lol

I don't know, I like the concept and it does add things that some of us are interested in but.....:scratch:


How did you get that off with ESPN and not the NFL? I rather see their links then Espn(College ball) Not saying that I don't like college ball. :bigthumb:

The ticker is customizable... there is an image on the top row that is gray with a circle in it. Click it and you can select what you want and don't want to see :bigthumb:

Leave it whereit is. People still have dial up? I would throw my computer away before I ever went back to dial up.

I like the ticker where it is. Nice addition to the site.

I didn't vote. I've always had mixed feelings about the ticker. It kills people on dial-up while at the same time it is nice to have on the site. Personally I think you can come up with a better feed than the ticker that won't kill people on dial-up.
Just my opinion and nothing more. It does look good where it is and doesn't bother my connection.

Well, I'll go the Koop route on this one......**** people with dial-up.....lol.

Not wanting to push away anyone on dial-up it sounds like the route to go is to make it an option that can be set at the time of registration and anytime there after. The default will be to have it enable :bigthumb:

So far it's a keeper, however I am curious as to why some people aren't for i and don't want it :dunno:

That is actually what I was thinking... if it's on then maybe let you select where you want it to be: top, bottom, somewhere in the middle :dunno: Haven't worked out all the details yet.

Yeah, there is a little red X in the lower right corner of the ticker, although it might turn on every time you load a page... I'll hack it and remove it for you only for now :bigthumb:

I get all of my taxes back each year, thanks to being deployed and going to combat zones, so my taxes don't pay for your welfare, since I don't pay them.

But your welcome anwyays.

Oh and Koop didnt say **** people with dial-up, I just said something like he would...thats all.

The ESPN ticker was a great idea. I didn't even know you can put those on websites.

I like it...so I voted for it to stay, however, only if the dial up users can still use the site like always. It's not worth losing members, but it is a neat feature.

I hate it

It sucks

It's tacky

It's cheesey

I don't like it one bit

It's going......going......going....









NOT !!!! :reddevil: :lol:

I've always liked the ESPN ticker, you can customize it to see what you want and it's accurate and up to date as well. The fact that dialup users or anyone else can remove it is a real plus. The more ways you can customize SA to make it your own happy place, the better :)

I think most of us are internet savy enough to find ESPN when we want to.....it is just a click away. Get rid of it!

If you don't like it you can go into your user options and turn it off. :bigthumb:
