Loving the site these days, and props as always for all the effort put into it, but I'm not keen on the little arrows over to the right.

They have more than once been in the way of what I was trying to click. I don't need to get all the way to the top or bottom so quickly that I need a shortcut to be always at the ready.

I feel like we can get to where we need to get to without it. :)

Third that. I almost forgot they were there, it's become second nature to navigate around them with the original scroll bar so they aren't in the way

You can remove them with custom css. Firefox & Chrome both support this natively or you can get extensions to make it a bit easier.

Code:
.xbScrollUpButton, .xbScrollDownButton {
   display: none !important;
}

for Firefox
Code:
@-moz-document domain("wtf.com") {

.xbScrollUpButton, .xbScrollDownButton {
   display: none !important;
}

}

I know that depending on how wide you have your browser set at, it can get in the way of a couple of elements.. Most annoying at very specific widths.

I don't have a problem ditching them.. Perhaps we can make it a poll.

What if they were replaced with Boobs? Would that increase their use?

I voted to ditch 'em but not because 53V3N is right. :D

I voted keep them. Not because I have ever used them or plan to but because Ven sucks for leaving us and I haven't forgiven him yet.

I voted to ditch them because when there was only one set of footprints in the sand, I was carrying BudVugger.

You can remove them with custom css.

Sometimes I just want you to listen! I don't always want you to solve my problems with code.

Keep them! That way I can scroll through all of these shitty posts and reply without feeling like I lost IQ points while reading. :mfinger:

I use them sometimes, but I couldn't care less about whether they stay or go. That is why I voted "Taters! Let BRiT choose for me!".
