    How exactly is it less intrusive? Smaller text? :lol:

    Honestly, it doesn't bother me so much now that I'm used to it. But I would like the option to turn off notification every time someone likes my post.

    The indicator in the top right corner of the thread telling how many posts in the thread have been liked is much smaller and it has a transparent background.

    100% agreed--I like it much more now that it is out of the way.

    But now (at least for me) it's covering up the page navigation part of the thread. I can't use the top part to go from page to page so I have to scroll down to the bottom.

    Just logged into Firefox and yep, I'm seeing it now. Surprisingly no problems in IE, though.

    I'll let Alex know.

    Wenge or GTFO.

    It actually ships with an i7 but the motherboard is built for AMD 990X. And no, they don't take returns.

    The main problem, I think, is the gray bar that crosses the entire post; the font size wasn't the biggest issue. It would flow much better if the box was right-aligned(remember the uproar over left-aligned sigs?) unless you clicked on it, then it would expand across the post to show everyone's name who "liked" it.

    I have that problem as well, but only after I've activated then hidden the popup that comes up to list the thanks. The popup auto-hides but you can no longer click any of the nav items that were covered when it was visible.

    That's in Safari Version 5.0.3 (6533.19.4)

    Like system is pretty solid now, and functions well on my system. Nice work Alex.

    WIn 7 x64, Mozilla 3 I think.

    This is also happening for me. On osx and linux for the following browsers -
    * Firefox 3.6.14 (osx and linux)
    * Safari 5.0.3 (osx)
    * Chrome 9.0.597 (osx)
    * Chomium 11.0.688 (linux)

    But, unlike techno, I don't even have to click on the (currently blocked by css rule) like drop down.

    Ok yeah, it's not happening whether I've displayed the dropdown or not

    Mesh: the drop down of thanks hides when you take your mouse off it
