    Default The new mouse-over menus

    I did a search and found that the previous thread about the mouse-over menus gave me the dreaded "Sorry! This thread is closed!"

    Here's my input: instead of an instant show, give them a 40-90 millisecond delay so if you're mousing around they won't pop up immediately and get in the way.

    Thanks, you may now return to more important stuff. :)

    For my 2 cents, I completely agree that they are a nuisance when in the forum.

    Yeah, I think they suck too. I dont use the "New Post" button and navigate around thru the links right under the new menus and am constantly having them drop down and before you know it, instead of going to the clubhouse, Im in the home audio speaker section.

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that hates those damn menus! I have voiced that opinion since they first went in!

    If I met one of those drop-down menus in prison, I would use a broken tooth brush to shank it.
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    Those drop downs are a bad idea. You have to go to polk's home page to get on the fourm anyway so I don't see why we need them.

    Or... you could just go to www.polkaudio.com/forums directly....

    I'm not a big fan of drop-down menus in general, but these have yet to bother me more than once or twice.
