Can't stand them :D

But, if it's to stay, is there an option for individual members to move it to the bottom of the page or turn it off?

Oh, and can the "Save Draft" button on posts be got rid of? Who saves drafts of posts??

It's a quick reply box at the top of the forum screen where you talk about anything.

Personally I prefer to keep threads going by talking shite...

I use save draft when on my mobile/iPad, sometimes I need to go between 2 browser tabs to check something. Sometimes when you go back onto the page it refreshes and you loose all of your reply.

If it's what I'm thinking it is, a chat box, they can be good sometimes. I think if they're used for their proper purpose, talking rubbish, they're fine. It's when they get technical and detract from threads they become a pain.
Just my view.

Haha. Why the hell did I dig that up? It must have been at the top of the page, well at least it wasn't just me that didn't notice. :)
