Wanted to tease Stratics for scrolling marquees but then...

    If you mean the notices, I wish I could take credit, but that's an out-of-the-box feature of XenForo. :)

    Would subscribing to Stratics Pro remove those?
    Thinking about doing that anyway but that would probably clinch the deal for me.

    The "Latest News" marquees on main UO Stratics page. Edited OP for link.

    To make it relevant to UO, it's kind of like if you've ever made a macro on your PvP mage to say something like, "This is going to hurt!" Then you cast e-bolt one day and you're like, "Hm, did I really need to make that macro say something?" Ah, the first time I wrote a marquee in HTML. *Memories.*

    Change speed. Reload. Change speed. Reload. ;)

    I like them. Mine never stopped because they weren't very cool, just basic ones :).

    The scrolling notices can be dismissed by anyone. There's a close button for them. They're not ads--they're forum notices for our users. At least, I think that's what he's talking about.

    Oh, that? I dunno who did that. Petra gets the credit there, I imagine.

    Just because a concept is old, doesn't mean it can't still be effective :D (I have a vague hope that applies to people too, I'm getting a bit long in the tooth myself )
    Sometimes the simple way is better than more elaborate.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought it was eye-catching enough to emphasise the messages contained within it, yet not overly intrusive to the point where it made the page appear too 'busy'.

    Not much in Stratics Pro that I would use actually...
    But I do hang around here a lot.. and I do believe in supporting the things I like.
    So why not?
