If it makes money for the website to operate and the users can hide it or remove it, i guess its ok. But most users here would never use it.

It hasn`t slowed me down (go Mac!) but it is annoying when the ad pops up. I did like it when the Levis add said something about my "ass" being unique. Or something. But it said ass and I smiled.

Thanks for the feedback all. Hopefully fancy will be able to demonstrate to the powers that be that this crap is definitely not wanted as is likely to drive dedicated users away. Thus lowering revenue, which unfortunately is all those jackasses care about.

As for those wanting an edit post button, it`s deliberate that there isn`t one there. If a user has posted something which is against the (very few) site rules, and we give them a warning for using the certain language etc, that user could simply go back and edit their posts in retrospect. Ditto for debates between users: "What? I said no such thing, how dare you imply that I did" etc etc.

There IS however a [Delete Post] button under every post you make (beneath your post count and avatar pic). Many users haven`t even noticed it. If you make a typo or whatever and only catch it after you post the comment, simply copy-pasta, fix the comment, and delete the old one.

I hate those things - they are just a nuisance. I close them immediately, but the fact they pop up every single time a person visits is major annoying.

IAB is already pretty slow waiting for ads from meebo to show up, sometimes it takes a really long time for actual content to arrive.

More ads, more wasted time, make it faster and maybe ignoring it would work out enough for me, but for now, it`s something to blame for my frustration.

Thanks for making this thread, I was considering saying fkit and using a different portal, there`s tons.

While I can see where Fancy is attempting to spruce up the site, I don`t think that a pesky toolbar is gonna be the answer.

I HAVE wondered however, why there isn`t a forum of some kind.

Dont see the point of it specially after seeing that everybody rather dislike it and keep it hidden.

It also looks ugly because its color scheme is different from the rest of the website theme.

Always hated content providers who use popups that overlap their content page. It is in the same category as: fly-out ads, ads that unfurl and roll back up on a time delay (either stay big or stay small - don`t make me scroll 2 and 12 seconds into my reading *grrrr*), and those stupid "we invite you to survey our site" popups. However, its not my site, but if it was my choice I`d get rid of it.

I do not like it pleas loose it.

It`s small, but not inconspicuous. Totally useless; contrary to popular belief, not everyone `tweets` (and the general consensus here at IAB appears to be that Tweeter is f`ing lame), and there`s already a tiny, wee little link to share things on Facebook (however, not every-goddamn-thing needs to be shared on FB anyhow).

IAB, please get rid of this useless toolbar at the bottom. Or at least make it optional. It`s nice that I can hide it, but I don`t want to have to constantly be hiding the bar.

I don`t mind it. Take note though, Firefox`s 4.0 browser has a little "loading" bar that sits over top of your bar, through most of the page load (in my theme anyway), so I had no idea it was under there until I waited for the "loading from..." bar to close.

I hate everything i don`t choose my self. Especially toolbars - these are the ones i hate the most. I accidently got the toolbar from Google once - it was like a fuc*ing genital wart. I almost had to burn my computer to get rid of it.

I love i-a-b.com. But i hate the toolbars. Well, thats like my opinion, dude...

As if my screen wasn`t cluttered enough, now I have a toolbar which I have to hide every time I come to IAB. Dear IAB, the toolbar is not original and in my eyes is pointless to probably(hopefully) most of your visitors.
In case my post wasn`t clear, I despise it.
Oh and next time make sure all the buttons work, because the "Sign in" is connected to nothing.
Have a good day IAB-ers

The absolute worst thing about the site is that the "Add to Favorites" button is directly under the link. I can`t count the number of times I slightly misclick a link, and add something I`ve never seen before to my favorites.

As to the question at hand, it`s fine. I never use it to be honest, but the design and utility of it has no problems.
