Not that at all.  When testing out a program,  I wouldn't want to stop to block out a pop up.

I lose my place and have to start back..

Sorry.  I am not sure where this pop up is suppose to be.  I haven't seen one, so I really could not tell if it would hinder my research.

    It is completely non-destructive.  Don't worry, I wouldn't do anything bad for your posts. Wink

          Great,  it isn't posts I am worried with.  When using the vtrac page it takes lots of time to transfer it to the deflation page and to delete the information not need in order to deflate.

            I came up with a new feature on the forums, which is pretty cool, if I do say so myself!

            If you're reading a thread and someone else posts a new message while you've got the thread on your screen, Lottery Post will put a small box in the bottom corner letting you know, and giving you an opportunity to go to the new post.

            So let's say you post something and you're waiting for a response.  After you post it, just sit there and wait.  When someone posts something new to the thread it pops up the box -- as you're just sitting there.

            It might be good if you have more than window open too.

            The feature "kicks in" after sitting on the same thread for one minute.

            This is something I came up with out of the blue, and I've never seen or heard of it anywhere, so I hope you enjoy my original creation! Big Grin

            (Let me know if it's annoying or good.)

            sorry Todd I should have read it a little closer.  This would not affect vtrac result page.  I spend most of my time,  copying and pasting to the deflation page.

                For anyone wondering, I have added the option to allow the feature to be disabled.  It is in the Board Settings page: http://www.lotterypost.com/control_board.asp

                In addition, I have added the ability to disable smooth scrolling, if you would like to jump directly to a sport on the page, rather than gliding to it smoothly.  For example, when you click a "Top" button, smooth scrolling glides the page upwards, whereas if you turn it off the page will instantly jump to the top.

                The option to turn off smooth scrolling is also available on the Board Settings page: http://www.lotterypost.com/control_board.asp

                  I find it annoying and unnecessary, so I'm glad you offered a chance to disable it.

                  As for why I think it's unnecessary, if I'm going to read a thread at all I read it in chronological order, and if I choose to continue reading, I'll see the most recent when I get to the last page unless the post is made after I've loaded the last page. That means there's absolutely no point in a pop up when I'm not already on the last page of posts. If I'm already planning on going there I'll see it when I load that page, and if I decide not to continue I certainly won't care if there's a new post. On the rare occasions that I'm already on the last page when  new post is added I'll be able to tell as soon as the index page for that forum is refreshed.

                  I think you're wrong about most people not seeing it because of a 1 minute threshold. It can take more than a minute to read a page of posts and there's also the possibility that we may be switching to another window, or doing any number of other things before returning to that window.
