Does anyone else find that floating menu annoying?
Really, I dislike those floating menu things immensely. OK, have a menu, but a static one, especially for minor things like booking test drives, getting brochures, looking up dealers ... etc .....

Mischievous marketing mayhem in my opinion.
But then that's possibly just my opinion.

Probably not used on the mobile site. But on the desktop version it is a pain in the a**. It's broken or seriously dumb.

It's driving me insane, for example it sits on the right of the screen as a menu bar which follows you as you page downwards then as soon as your cursor moves into the forum window it opens.
Now, the forum has a lovely feature where you can go to the last unread post by clicking on the far right symbol .... yes, you know what's coming ..... not any more as the now opened menu covers it.

This morning I see a new post has been made in the Megane RS thread so I'd like to go straight to that post ..... nope, not possible, I now have to go into the forum and then into the discussion.

Please get rid of that annoying bloody menu, or make it static at the top or bottom of the site.

Edit: I can't even proof read this post fully as it now blocks the right hand quarter of my post. In fact I can't even see what I'm typing right now as it covers what I am typing.

I concur and would like to confirm that this UX is utterly annoying and totally useless.

Do a RS Owner really need constant reminder of:

1. Test Drive (Owning one isn't enough?)

2. Brochures (Just in case it didn't come with the car?)

3. Find a dealer (New to area and can't be bothered to Google?)

4. Part Exchange (Useful, but does it need to be there as a constant reminder?)

5. Latest Offers (As above, but better off sending as email or by post may be?)

Thanks,
Tanim

LOL. First World problems. I don’t see what the issue is. It’s there but simple to ignore.

perhaps the most annoying thing going around now is the infuriating 'floating' renault ad on autocar and pistonheads mobile sites. cant see anyway of getting rid of it. that is going to turn more people off renault than attract for sure.

whoever runs marketing campaigns like that want firing.

AdBlocks get rid of them. Cool

A big thank you from me as this morning I find it's no longer there :-)

So much more peaceful and no longer annoying.

OK, you've brought it back just to annoy me and you're succeeding.
A real PITA.

It wasn't there this morning, now after lunch it is.

I was just starting to enjoy the forum again, sadly not any more.
