Sove Talk to Me! — "I dunno. I can't... just look inside. But I figure... If there is something in there - inside us - then we'd feel it, wouldn't we?"

"No one would miss me." — 14:16, 4 August 2011 (EDT)

Let's just make it straight, I'm absolutely fed up with these images that follow your screen on talk pages, especially when they are placed on the lower-right corner of the screen, they easily prevent you to read a part of the last messages because you can't usually scroll the text to be visible due to the page ending, like you can do when the image is elsewhere on the right side of the screen. One example is Gr8champ's talk page. That wayfinder keeps blocking the text when you scroll the screen, you can read the blocked text by scrolling, but look at the last message. You need to play around with the scrolling bar to be able to see that one word it blocks (but it looks like there is more text than only one word), it's incredibly annoying when I have to use more effort to read the last message from the talk page.

I talked about this on the irc as well and some others considered this image stuff to be annoying as well, so what should we do, restrict the image stuff and make the reading much more enjoyable, or let those image-monsters make readers pissed off? I think the wiki should aim for the option one. And even if those didn't block parts of the text, they are still annoying, I can see the goddamn picture when I open the talkpage, I don't need it to follow my screen to know that I have seen it.

My suggestion are:

- Images may not follow the screen if they exceed a certain size (30x30px should be sufficient so they won't block parts of the text)

- No such images on the left side at all, not only because they can block parts of the text, but also because they look extremely annoying there, and many times they go on top the navbar

My text is quite confusing but I hope you see my meaning.

Objection and more suggestions are of course welcome.

OBJECTION!

I Object the idea of objecting this idea. Yeah, I agree with Sove those images can get annoying.

If a don't get me, the 2 objections basically cancel each other out. I am against the objection to this idea. Get it now? :P

TALK -
Instead of banning them completely, how about just asking people not to use them on talk pages, which are, after all, an inbox, not a decoration page.

I only meant this for the talk pages. As Kryten said, they're not a decoration page, userpage is a different thing, they can be customized to the user's liking anyway.

How do you feel about my talk page, which includes a floating navigation bar at the bottom? --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 22:59, 4 August 2011 (EDT)

It should be fine. If you hit end (at least in Vector), the bar is far below the bottom of the page content. KRCCFNF is tired of being STEPPED ON. 23:19, 4 August 2011 (EDT)

Vsymbol.png Completely in favor. Images that follow you down the screen are as much distracting as they are irritating, especially when trying to give out important messages. We don't really encourage talk-page chat, and this sort of flair could potentially draw people to it. Perhaps we should have a limited talk-page flair policy, not just a "no irritating scrolling images" guideline.

TALK - "I'm sorry that I cooked your dog."
We could make something very close to our Signature Policy, in which talk page scrolling images can't exceed a certain size.

Well, as long as the 30X30 doesn't block the text I'm fine with it.

@Neumannz - It's not blocking any of the text, which is a good thing. Maybe I should do that...iffen you don't mind.

OPXion4EverIcon.png Although I do find them annoying, I know a lot of people here use them on both userpages/talkpages. Is there any way we can make the coding to where the sticker be placed only on the left side, or at the top? If not, I'm up for getting rid of them.

Vsymbol.png It's still annoying, and always will be, but I can't really say it's a pressing issue...
