Recent Discussions - forum update soon

Tonight the above has appeared on the right hand side of my desktop whilst I look at RIBnet pages.

Has anyone else got this? I'm guessing it's an upgrade?

Is there anyway of removing it as it's taking up too much space and is an unwelcome addition to my viewing pleasure?

Mine too, my wide screen has now become narrow screen with a bright white wide stripe down the right hand side, which I find annoying.. just have to wear

Looks like I posted in the wrong column

If that box for "Recent Discussions" has to make an appearance can we have a button in user CP to switch it off please?

Still a big empty box.

This is a step backwards in the site design

If you guys go to your User CP > Edit Options > and then scroll down to the bottom, you'll see that you can turn the right column off.

We're working on a new style now, that will be much cleaner with some upgrades. Sorry about the issues.

I know that an upgrade is on the way, but these changes came as a surprise to me too.

I'm waiting to find out a bit more about what's going on. Bear with us for a bit!

Doesn't look good. I thought it was just my browser doing odd things

Upgrades are not always an improvement ......just look at the various Windows versions for proof of that...

Yay back to a full screen

Encouraging that the dictatorship listens to the opinion of us mere mortals

If only the same applied to the "democracy" that is the Jersey Government

Nor am I. I get a full screen for a microsecond then it contracts again leaving the blank space.
