Should the shortcuts at the top scroll down as you do?

  1. I don't know about everyone else out there, but I find it particularly annoying that when I scroll down through a thread, in order to check my alerts or go to my profile page, I have to scroll all the way back up. A good idea (I'm no website programmer, but it doesn't seem very hard as I've seen it in other places) would be to make that top navigations bar stay at the top of the screen as one scrolls down. Opinions?

  2. Awesome idea
  3. The only problem I have with that is the menu bar is quite large and would fill a fair part of my screen and when I'm on my phone it would be even worse :/

  4. Hmm. Maybe we could have a mobile EMC app?
  5. As far as I know, browsing the web on a phone is a pain in the @** anyways...

  6. A mobile EMC app would be awesome! Would make skiving off work a lot easier for me :p

  7. Mobile apps for Apple devices are programmed in some kind of funky AppleScript or something, I don't know if Justin or any of the staff can program in this language - I certainly can't! ROFL
  8. This. It is very easy now to keep a div fixed absolutely to the top while having another div scrollable. It will even make mobile navigation slicker as you can make the scrolling div scroll like native apps, with touch and momentum. An ad that scrolls with you is probably the most annoying thing possible, but a div that stays fixed with an ad is much nicer.

  9. Not on an Ipad :/

    But I keep clicking the adverts on it :(
  10. I voted no, 'cause I really hate these moving navigationbars. I find them really irritating^^ But I'd appreciate it, as long as it's an optional feature I can disable :)
  11. I believe that it is a great idea and would put an end to the constant strain I put on my middle mouse wheel trying to scroll up all the time.

  12. That would be kinda hard to program that to be able to disable that... I'm no expert on HTML, but that sounds like a whole lotta code.
  13. Thats why I voted "no" ^^
  14. That bar is big :/

  15. Just to clear up things, my original intention was that the word 'bar' apply to just the dark one at the top with your name, inbox, alerts, etc. I didn't originally mean the one with the forums, empire guide, etc, but that doesn't mean that that one isn't open for discussion.
  16. or maybe have a small notification bar on the bottom with your alerts and a top of page button
  17. I could work on making one and yes I know how to make applications. Anyone else want to help?
  18. I understand that, but thanks for clarifying.
  19. Maybe a mobile xenforo style? that would be easier and better to fit our needs and fit Justin's agenda :)
