    Sorry Mike, but I'm not that crazy about that new magnifying glass of yours, appearing every time I'm highlighting a word I need to copy and paste in a post.

    Can you make it harder to hit by mistake?

    Thanks :)

    It will soon be an option to turn that off in your My Account... but that will probably take another day or so to get to. :)

    The option is now enabled! Head to My Account at the top of any page, then go to Edit Options on the left. About halfway down the page, under the "Thread Display Options" category, look for "Highlight for Search." Check the box in that area to disable the feature. :)

    Can you do the same for the annoying "similar threads" thingy at the bottom? I know you can minimize it but it would be nice to have an option to make it disappear completely especially since the minimizing doesn't hold so you have to do it every time you log in. :)

    I sure can -- I mean, we've got enough other options there, what's another one? How is it annoying, though? I figured it'd be pretty far out of the way. :)

    It just creates a lot more scrolling to reach the bottom of the page and more clutter. I have to minimize it every time I log in, the same as those other anjoying things on the main category page. :D :p

    LOL... everyone's a critic!

    What is it you're scrolling to the bottom for? The "Top" link? Maybe that should be moved up to somewhere else?

    Heading out to dinner with some friends, but I'll have time tomorrow to set something up for ya! :)

    I quite like it but don't tell Karen as she might threaten to reduce my post count again :p

    Look for "Hide Similar Threads" right under "Highlight for Search" in Edit Options. :)
