    You're welcome. It's the most wonderful time of the year. :)

    When I tested them, there wasn't a measurable impact on loading speed. However, one user has stated that loading speed is slower since the snowflakes. See: How do I turn OFF snowflakes?. I've lowered the number of snowflakes from 35 to 20 and disabled them for the [XenCera] Scroll style, in case anyone wants an alternate theme. If anyone else has site-related support questions, please post them in the appropriate forum (not UHall).

    I'd like to see lightning strikes shooting across my screen. That would be fun.

    Well, okay... I guess I will have to get used to this theme until this snowflakes thing is over.

    Also, I will never understand why there are snowflakes during the hottest months of the year! If it was during June or July, I would understand. :p

    The snow is seriously farking with my edit post window. What's the exact URL of the script file for it so I can add that to my content blocker? Since I refuse to change my theme and all.

    Must be something I can't see either with the theme I use or my lovely Firefox with no script and adblock.

    You may turn them off by turning off JavaScript (like MalagAste has done with script blocker). I've tested the speed and used it on a smart phone. Things look ok to me. :)

    I've duplicated the UO Classic theme, but without snow. The theme is called "Default-UOClassic_No_Snow." It may now be selected normally.

    I checked taptalk and no snowflakes. It's worth it to pop into a browser to see them.

    Can you make it so I can get a blizzard, and the snowflakes gather on the "ground" at the bottom of my screen, and then I can turn my mouse into a snowblower and a get to clear my screen?

    Need to get some practice in before I get hit IRL. :)

    :thumbsup: Snowflakes.

    We left them off for that particular one, as some folks wanted them off. Sorry. All the other themes have them.
