New Thingy At Top Of Front Page

Whatever that new gizmo at the top of the front page is called...pretty snazzy!

Nice one, Arn.

I asked about that in the back room to one of the admins and I had the same name for it too! "Thingy" LOL.

I like it too.

Gizmo... Thingy.... Always with the hyper-technical jargon! You gotta remember some of us aren't advanced enough to understand whatchamacallits or thingamajigs. Speak English!

It is quite nice, whatever it's called! I'm gonna guess "carousel"

Nice one, Doctor Q!

I wish you newbies would try to keep up with the current nomenclature!

It wasn't Doctor Q...our quiet behind-the-scenes developers worked with arn to get it done.

And if you haven't noticed, it's collapsible down to just the headlines for those who want to reduce the vertical space it takes up.

Definitely helpful! I've noticed it doesn't show at all on the iPhone.

Touchι!

As far as tightening my bolts...that train has left the station.

OK, one more try!!!

Nice job...whoever did the new thingy!!

(I'm safe going generic, I hope!)

Hmm. I don't have much else to ask. Does it work on other browsers? I'm on 10.8 / Safari 6.0.2 / Latest version, and it works for me.

Any extensions? Anyone else with this problem?

Works on Chrome, but not Safari, which is why it baffles me. 10.8.2 and Safari is Version 6.0.2 (8536.26.17)

Extensions, just two and they are not even related to ads. One is for a site called Cuevana and the other is for Weather.com

The arrow does not change its orientation when you collapse/expand the section. If you care, it's slightly annoying. (Yea, I'm weird)

What is the criteria for a "Top Post"?

Odd problem some of you are experiencing. I use Chrome primarily and it works. I just tried Safari with no extensions and it also worked for me.

I'm not seeing a Thingy thing? I'm using Chrome. Can someone post a screenshot so I know what I'm supposed to see?
