The pop-up balloon boxes are making me crazy.
Is there any way to disable them, perhaps on a individual user basis?

Balloons? I'm still wondering why things are laid out like a two-inch-wide book that's three feet tall.

Dude omg how did you make that happen? What is wrong with you???

Since I only get one pop up at at time....like normal people, I enjoy being able to see a preview of what I'm getting myself into.

I'm on a PC, but I like the way I can preview an OP by hovering my mouse over the title.

Holy Crap!! I just figured it out. I can read the post without clicking on the link... but the problem is that I still have to read it. Now, if the site would allow me to post without clicking on anything, I will be ecstatic.

When asked to describe the overhaul these past few weeks I've used the analogy of a nice restaurant being converted overnight into a Chuck-E-Cheese.

And now we actually have balloons? It looks like the description was more apt than I knew... 🐭

The world will end with the last human standing atop a miles-high pile of rubble with thousands of corpse arms still clutching an iPhone sticking out of it like sea urchin spines... and taking a selfie

I can not re-create the multiple balloons Dan shows. Tried all manner of combo clicks, but get only one at a time when I hover over an active title.

Setting on the computer??

This reminds me of one of my favorite "legacy" games.

Anyone active during the infancy of the online experience will recall similar real life experiences.

I like having a preview of the post before deciding to open and read it. I only get one preview at a time and as soon as I leave the title/text it disappears.
