    Peace and Blessings Family ... Happy New Year !!! ... :love:

    I'm sure you all will see the Blinking Blue Member Names (4 of them), and i need to know how distracting it is to you.

    Blinking text on a web page, has been likened to the worst thing you can do to a page.

    It doesn't really bother me that much, so i'm wondering how you all feel about it.

    The reason the Blinking Blue Member Names exist, is because they are our 2008 Monthly Winners.

    Please let me know what you think about the blinking ... does it make you want to leave, and never return?!

    Keep the Blink or Remove it? Please vote in the poll above, and share your thoughts below.

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    Brother James ... Happy New Year !!! :love:

    Go to this page ... http://destee.com ... and you'll see Sister HopelisRomantic's name in Blinking Blue Text ... in the shout out box, as well as the who's online listing, on the left of the same page.

    Take a peek.

    Eventually, you will see Sister HopelisRomantic, Sister TrueToTheCause, Sister PLATINUMILLITY1, and Brother OldSoul's Member Name doing this, as they are all this month's winners.

    If you click on their name above, or a post by any of them, you'll see their name blinking and blue.

    It will blink and be blue for a month, until we get our next 4 winners for next month ... then they'll blink and be blue! :)

    Let me know if you see it.

    :heart:

    Blinking is not supported by Internet Explorer (because the technology was originated by Netscape, a Microsoft rival). To see blinking text you will need another browser such as Netscape Navigator (soon to be extinct) or Mozilla Firefox (which can be downloaded for free).
