Do you read the 'What's New on Garden Web' banner?

I know a lot of members didn't like it always opening with each page so GW made it collapsible.

So....did you read the Red alert about posting being down sometime this afternoon?...(tbd- times to be determined yet).

If there are problems with GW do you think to check the What's New for info? I don't collapse it, as it has never bothered me, since I have 'sort of' high speed.

Hey Sue,

Welcome back to posting again, we've missed you.

Do I read the "what's new on Garden Web banner?

Yup, always do. have learned from experience that is where we are alerted to problems going on and info that we should be aware of. Like the one that is posted right now.

Very cute wording to it too, I might add.

"UPDATE: Wednesday, 12:00 ET: Who let the garden gnomes out? The partying got out of hand last night and they managed to bring down one of our servers. The Gnome Hunters have been deployed, but will need to turn off all posting for a few hours this afternoon (time tbd). Ouch -- that hurts, we know! Stay tuned for further updates. Same Bat Time, same Bat Channel!"

RE: Do you read the 'What's New on Garden Web' banner?

no, (almost ) never. the first thing i do is collapse it, although the red writing made it impossible for me not to read it today.

RE: Do you read the 'What's New on Garden Web' banner?

I do.

I read a post the other day and couldn't help but laugh. I apologize if it was someone here. They were complaining about the back button not working and was asking if anyone else was having the same problem. Right above their post was the 'What's New on Garden Web' banner explaining there was a problem with the back button.
