HELP! I NEED VERBIAGE!!

As I was preparing to submit a support ticket concerning my passionate disdain of
the automatic "dropdown" windows at the top of each Sploofus page (Trivia Games,
Community, Leaderboards,Tournaments), I soon realized I couldn't find the correct
"verbage" to accurately describe how I feel about this "automatic" function.

Unfortunately, most of the terms I thought best described my dislike of this function
would probably have led to the thread being removed! (just kidding).

Help me (if you dare) in finding the best descriptive for this "automatic" function that
creates so much "pain" for me . "Thanks" to all who may contribute a response.

The only consolation that I can offer about that is.....you eventually get used to it and learn to navigate away from it.

I remember during the 2.0 beta this was one of Easy/Lodi's biggest complaints. That was a long time ago, and apparently the fix has not made it to the top of Justin's fix-it priorities.

But we can all commiserate.

Save your breath (or finger muscles). We have begged, sent in support tickets, sent in bugs, and discussed it to death how awful those automatic drop down boxes are. I've even had them screw up my TQOTD before because when I went to click, my mouse hit one of those drop down boxes and blocked everything.

All pleas have fallen on deaf ears. Same as the requests for having the search engine back on the threads, being able to see whose quiz you are taking, having the option your comments not showing at the bottom of a quiz, and the information in your profile that says is private and won't be seen by anyone actually kept private.

But we have those nifty things where we can throw pies at people so I guess its a wash.

Add to that list the desire for the return of the roll-over preview of messages in the PM system. I REALLY miss that little convenience, and it grates on me every day to have to open each message one by one.

The drop boxes are especially bad when I'm using the touch-pad on my laptop. They remind me of once-useful body parts on the elderly. Any description I attempt cannot equal your imagination.

How about this: Unfortunately, the drop down menus fail miserably to improve the site, and are instead causing players continual frustration, and even interfer with the successful completion of some of the games. Please, please, consider eliminating them and returning to a more user-friendly design. Respectfully submitted...

LOL you can say it nice or nasty-some things don't change. Many things that we wish hadn't have and that is also factual - Linda

Ms. Linda, I can certainly understand and respect your frustration. I'm sure you're totally right, it's just that I feel it's best to keep on the message and repeat it again-and-again-and-again, etc., -- nicely -- until someone hears it and responds one way or the other. It's simply my way -- kill 'em with kindness, but don't stop pressing your point!

Or just move it so it doesn't block the TQOTD.

I want to add to the list, being able to scroll through all the pages of quizzes by more than 1 page at a time. Takes freaking forever to go through old quizzes.

Same way with the player directory.
