    Per the title.
    An example of a separate ticker tab may be seen in the Vault Dark style that is being tested.

    Where can it be seen in the dark theme? I can't find it.

    Click that.
    It is in its own tab because otherwise there will be too much shit up top to scroll through before you see the actual forums.

    Your opinion is now reflected in a new poll option :)

    I think it is nicer in the box, but that could just be the opposition to change speaking.

    The ticker seems to more or less be the same as the Spy page, so I'm not really seeing the point.

    The spy and ticker are slow to load and all that so it's not really able to compete with posts in the box. But still, if we could have the two separate the box would feel less cluttered.

    I prefer the bawks because I spend so much time there and it keeps me up-to-date on what's hot.

    but the point is if we have something outside it but on the same page then it would still be right there to see but not interrupting conversation.

    I think we just need a way for something like the spy thing to have a full sized chatbox, or a smaller version of the ticker on the chatbox page. The spy page already had a small chatbox so I don't see what this new ticker accomplishes.

    Separate Ticker for me, I hate post notifications in my bawks.

    Given the feedback I'll have to see if I can come up with a better solution to make everyone happy.
    Please feel free to keep posting replies/comments in this thread, I need to do some thinking as to how to approach this.

    Would people be okay with me temporarily killing posts in shoutbox until the contest is over?

    Argh - sorry, I completely forgot about this as there's a lot going on right now.

    What I'd like to do is find a way for the best of both worlds - so that the folks that want posts in shoutbox will have them, and those that do not can use the ticker. I _think_ it should be possible but until I roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty I can't make any promises.
