...and we are not immune.

I've added code for the Facebook "Like" button to the thread and threadx pages. It may even work!

I'm not sure if it'll stay or not at this point - this was more an exercise to see if I could do it or not, but I don't know that it helps us any more than it would help Facebook (assuming it helps anybody at all).

EddieBurkett does not like this.

For one little button, why is there a giant grey box the width of the table? If this could be minimized (or if I can check off in my profile to get rid of it), that would be better.





You believe me, don't you?
Please believe what I just said...

^ What he said.

That's an obnoxiously pushy thing to put on this otherwise sleek & concise website ...

Well...log out and THEN look at it - it fits in well with all the other crap (ads) we push on guests.

I'll move it to the bottom of the page for now to make it easier for you to ignore.

(The "newposts" page doesn't have it either)

Can you make it the same color as the background?

Sorry, not at this time. Facebook only gives me two choices of text colour, neither of which would work with ALL of our palettes. So I had to just code in a background so it would work with all of them. I have a hunch that Facebook will get a little more flexible after we bombard them with complaints - on the other hand, sometimes they don't listen to complaints at all...

Thank you -- it's definitely less intrusive down there ...

It seems excessive. Especially since the clickable portion of it takes up like 1/20th of the bar.

I too dislike this. Facebook is blocked at work, so I get a "you have visited a blocked page" notification for every thread I click on. This hasn't stopped me from visiting during work hours (I work through scheduled breaks and I figure this helps even things out) but it really should.

Ok, so let me see if I understand this. If someone DOES click the like button for this page it will put their facebook name on the big bar of doom? If you click on it, it also puts up the exact webpage address on your facebook?

Why would someone do that?

It doesn't show up in "Most recent posts in..." view, so I'm cool with it.

Only if you're Facebook friends with them.

That it does.

    Why would someone do that?
Lots of people share lots of links lots of different ways and this is another one.

Fair enough. There were two ways to take your earlier comment, and I played it straight after looking at your registration date. We get abou 10,000 people through here a day who have probably never heard of slashwrestling.
