Would it be a big deal to move the Who's Online box to above the nav bar? This may sound counterintuitive, but the main nav bar would still be on the screen w/o scrolling, and you could quickly check to see who's online without scrolling down.

Not a big thing, but something I know I would like. If it's a huge pain then never mind.

Anyone have an opinion on that?

My concern is for newbies: they need to see the main parts of the site immediately, above the "fold," as soon as the page is displayed. Those items are the core of the site, and they couldn't care less who's online.

My opinion is that we need to keep it on top, well above the "fold".

Hmm. On my screen (I realise this may be different on other monitors or browsers) a couiple of links from the System group are off the page, but none of the community. But you're right, if the Members were moved up then something like Downloads down would be off the page.

What do you tink about movingthe top of the nav bar up and 'squashing' the logo cell... I tend to think that looks bad actually so it's probably a lousy idea.

Did somebody not like the Admin block up top?

Oops. Yeah that was me... I didn't know who moved it so I moved it back down.... I kind of do prefer it down but if you want it back up I'm not adverse to it.

It's not a big deal to me either way. Because I don't have a whole lot of time for the BGDF during certain parts of the day, I like to briefly cruise through. I realized (based on this thread) that I always load the page, check my PM status, and then scroll down a couple of pages to check for any admin stuff. I was just being really, really lazy and trying to save myself the scroll. :) It's cool where it's at.
