Post subject:  I dont like the flashgroup box - it gets in my way

Hi Patrick -

sorry to say it, but I don't like the new box from Flashgroup. I have not yet found out what it does, but the box can't be removed from the screen on my laptop, and so I have to play the 6x6 twin games in "medium" or "small" size.

Other than that, I don't really mind what appears in the advert box, just so long as I can make it disappear.

Don't like to winge, but seems I'm doing so!

Yes, I understand it can be a problem on small screens.

It's an experiment anyway (the people at flashgroup have just created this,
they're still in beta, I'm helping them with testing).

The idea is that (1) I get some traffic from other puzzle sites (and vice versa), and (2) there's
still informal "chat about the puzzles" feature.

But making it so you can click it away after ~ 10 seconds (like I'm sure you get used
to with the ad box) doesn't help this.

A possible solution would be an option to move it below puzzles somewhere.

edit: I removed it for twin puzzles just now

And perhaps it would be convenient to remove it from the timed puzzles too, at least when using RDSI (low speed Internet) most times (specially in the 4x4's and 5x5's) it "freezes" the cursor for about 10 or 11 seconds while loading the ad and when you are allowed to enter numbers again the counter obviously has elapsed those 10 or 11 seconds which you have lost.

It should be gone from the timed puzzles now, let me know
(I already used my timed puzzles of today :-) )
