Do you think the default behavior for the blue menu bar should be Floating or Stationary?

I recognize that people may have very different opinions on this.

Do you think that the blue menu bar should be floating (as you scroll) or stationary as the default setting when someone comes here for the first time?

    Tastes are different but I prefer the stationary.... the floating one draws too much attention &

      I like the fact that it floats. This way you don't have to scroll all the way to the top of the page to switch the features. It's right there for us to click on.

          As I already said elsewhere, I like it.

                It floats down the page with the greatest of ease...............

                  I don't like it either, gets in the way of what I'm trying to read when I scroll up or down.

                    I dont mind it eitherway,,,(fence sitter)...maybe you can add an option to lock it when people sign on....(put one of those little lock icons up in the right hand corner next to resources)...... I totally understand if its not feasible......

                      If you don't default it to floating, the new members will never know about how it could work.  I say float as default.

                            I locked the bar and when I came back it was still locked, YEA !!!

                            Don't think [ON] should be the default for new visitors, more likely to scare them off.  Glad my car didn't come with all the accessories turned [On].

                            I do think it would be better if the On/Off were on the bar end itself as I'd like to be able to turn it off while doing predictions and on for threads
                            without having to change screens to do it.

                              As always BOB has some literal words. Just imagined myself trying to pay attention on the road while something jumps around my head all the time&huh..
