    Can we do away with the mouseover to see submenus? So damn annoying.

    Because of accidental hovering?

    I'd like to second this suggestion.

    It is right in the middle of the page, so if you use the mouse to close a page and then move down to select the next topic you want to read you run right over it. I curse it regularly.

    Same issue here. Such a huge menu when it pops up.

    The problem is the roundups menu is right above the forum spy link. People move the mouse over the spy link and often the roundups menu drops down.

    Did this change just happen today after the bad guys visited ?

    The forum spy link is now moved to the right.

    Thanks to whoever did it.

    The Roundups menu is extremely annoying on the iPad. When I'm composing a post on the iPad, tapping in many areas of the composition window will trigger the menu, even if the "Roundups" item is off-screen. For example, I tapped where indicated by the arrow and the menu pops up, interfering with my ability to edit the post.

    Can we please correct this behavior?

    Roundups menu

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but is there any chance the 'Roundups' item could be a button, rather than a pop-up menu when the cursor passes over it. It really gets in the way. I'm sure it's intended that way to draw attention to the delights within, but to be honest it just really gets in the way...

    Well, talking about the Roundups section, (I know this is nitpicky!) the iPad mini photo within the article shows a non-retina iPad mini, when it should show a retina iPad mini. I can tell because the retina models have the second microphone on the rear, and in the pic they do not. Before anyone says "but it shows a space gray model," yes, I know, but Apple has released the first generation iPad mini in Space Gray, which is what is shown in the picture.

    The forum Roundup menu item should be better.

    It's not perfect, but it's better.

    I'm not hitting it as much as I used to, but that's probably because my " aim" has improved :)

    Postscript - I have noticed that the round up menu pops up still when you are on the front page however, it behaves nicely though when you are in the forums section.
