    Since this is the 'feedback' section, I thought I'd past this link as per the Site New section.

    Subject: FB Feed now showing on right
    http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/showthread.php?t=317341

    So we are loosing about 1/6th of horizontal screen space due to this feed.
    I'm on a 24' monitor so its quite annoying and I can only imagine what guys using laptop screens are putting up with now.

    Coz Social Media is everything and screw design efficiency... or something.:nuts:

    Please... ppleeeaaasseee.... either give us a Forum user CP option to disable it AND give our screen width back, or at least put it at the top/bottom of the page so we retain the width and can scroll to/away from it if required.

    Yes, it is annoying enough to deter me from visiting here as often as I'd like to and I'm sure it has the same effect on some others.

    Agree, it's location is really annoying. Top or bottom would be much better.

    It's really bad on an ipad, good to see there's a solution in the works.

    Thanks SSO!

    Yeah even things like trying to zoom in on the text (now that 1/3 of the screen is eaten up by the super awkward ad placement) doesn't seem to work on mobile browsers. Ugh. I could get over seeing the ads all the time on mobile, but not being able to zoom to read is kind of an issue. :rant:

    Highly agreed.

    My phone and laptop screens are being eaten up by the location. I agree with whoever above suggested having it at the bottom of the screen.

    Piss it off all together. We don't need a feed to a stagnant fb page...

    That's the part that's mystifying about the whole thing. No one uses it. Why have it take up space?

    I cannot no longer visit this site at work as Facebook causes web proxy warnings with every page load.

    Probably because Alex addresses the sidebar and all it's various implementations in this sticky, so why not look there and get your answers?

    Great. So, the RIGHT thing to do would be to WAIT to put the stupid side bar in AFTER the mobile versions are complete. :nuts::wallbash: Poor excuse to be so user un-friendly.

    Well if they did they that would mean someone actually used common sense in the planning. That said, I have no idea what their financial situation is atm regarding the demands of running the servers.

    Also quotes like this doesn't exactly give me high hopes going forward...
    Oh well, all we can do is wait and see what happens.

    I hardly ever post anymore but I do lurk to keep up to date on fancy expensive gear. This thread has inspired me to join in and say I despise the facebook sidebar or whatever it is. I keep scrolling through that instead of the page i'm on on my ipad because it perfectly lines up with where I happen to touch when scrolling.

    I don't have facebook, i don't want facebook. At least give me the option to turn this off please?

    Some of the users on this site are so loaded, it's too bad someone just doesn't become the benefactor of SSO. If I had dough to blow on some of the custom gear I see on here I'd just be like "yo here's 100$ now make this site as good as it was before"*

    I remember that once when about half of the active users on the Lamb of God message board got banned en masse, one of the dudes just made his own Lamb of God message board for banned members of the Official Lamb of God message board. It was actually pretty busy for a good 10 years. Even Mark and Randy joined it :lol:

    *I actually have no real understanding of how much it costs to run a website.
