The one that would appear when you scrolled down, that had links to active, I'm on, etc. Mine has gone and there's nothing mentioned about it in customise anymore either. Used to be an on/off switch in there for it.

I miss it sad

MNHQ answered the other thread first. It's gone because of complaints about it.

Sorry. Hadn't seen this thread too.

Yes, we took it down because we had so many cross mails about it.

We had no idea some people liked it!

We'll see what we can do...

what? Complaints?

I found it really useful and am totally lost without it - it makes the site less easy to navigate.

I like to read a thread down the page (instead of 'flipping' the page so the last message is at the top) so in order to get back to Active or Im On, I have to scroll all the way back up screen (on a long thread it is just annoying frankly).


LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 18:07:38

Ok. Message received loud and clear.

As I said, we'll see what we can do for you all.

That's OK. But thanks - appreciated.

Couldn't the people who didn't like it just turn it off in customise?

I hated it at first, but love it now and really can't be arsed if its not there.

Noooooo, please bring it back. It's so useful, especially if you've minimised your window because you're supposed to be working.

DorsetKnob Wed 05-Dec-12 20:16:49

Please can we have it back?

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Wed 05-Dec-12 20:19:50

Well, I would really like it back please.

Ranthambore Wed 05-Dec-12 20:49:47

Pleeeeeease bring it back.

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Dec-12 21:01:21

Evening. We'll see what we can do.

Smeggnog Thu 06-Dec-12 09:42:36

Complaints? Why? It's so useful.

Add me to the 'bring it back' list please.

I'm really missing my floater. sad

The floaty bar (whose been using its time off from Mumsnet to visit Europe) is very touched, and tells me it never realised how loved it was.

We are working on getting it back, and having it as an "opt in", rather than a "opt out" feature. Bear with us!

WhereYouLeftIt Fri 07-Dec-12 13:39:11

Yay! grin

I shall welcome it back with open arms!

Cheddars Fri 07-Dec-12 14:10:03


Please come home for Christmas

too much? grin

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 07-Dec-12 16:20:58


And the floaty bar is back - if you want it.

Just go to Customise/Other options/Hide the viewport bar (A.K.A. slide bar) and select No.

Re-enjoy smile

HarlettHoHoHoScara Fri 07-Dec-12 16:39:16

Yay! It's back grin

Lots of wine and thanks for MNHQ and Tech smile

AmberLeaf Fri 07-Dec-12 16:41:57

Yaay! Thank you! wine flowers
