[marinersk]: LanX, the problem is that the lack of interface visual stability is disconcerting to me. The Nodelet appearing and disappearing is distracting, and despite over a decade, still troubles me. It jangles me.
[LanX]: I see
[marinersk]: I appear to be unusually dependent on spacial stability. I have had trouble from someone moving an object a mere four inches to the left.
[Eily]: I think the solution is to write posts so brilliant that you gain XP on each refresh, no matter how often :P
[marinersk]: Eily++ and LOL
[marinersk]: I get a lighter version of this disconcertion (new word?) when the n points remaining until rank disappears.
[choroba]: :-D
[marinersk]: I've often marvelled over the past few decades at just how little it takes to mess me up with this spacial dependence thing. I wonder if I'm mildly autistic or something.
