While I'm sure Proz is duly proud to have reached 2 million questions, I do NOT see why that should screw up our ability to view the ANSWERS to those 2 million questions, due to the dozens of psychedelic balloons that are currently obscuring all of the Proz windows that I happen to have open!

How do I block them?

Very annoying.

( sorry for being a wet-blanket spoil-sport, but I'm trying to work here, and the balloons are getting in my way.... )

SIMPLE SOLUTION Sep 3, 2008

There are several solutions:

1) Prick them using a virtual needle.

2) Ask the site administrator to turn off the animation.

Adblock Sep 3, 2008

If you're using Firefox with Adblock extension, just add a filter to block http://www.proz.com/js/balloons.js - that's what I did and the site is back to normal for me now.

I'll have one of the developers whip one up presently...

Seriously, the balloons will disappear in a bit!

AAhhhhhhhhh!!!

That's MUCH better!

Thanks Henry! Your "virtual needle" worked like a charm! Please thank the devs for their great needle-work skills.

All they need to do now is come up with a virtual broom to virtually sweep up the thousands of bits of virtual rubber scraps that are lying all over the desk under my monitor!

Should be gone Sep 3, 2008

Hello all,

Your browsers should be balloon-free by now. Please let me know if you happen to spot a stray one somewhere. Thanks!

Best regards,

Jared

Can you try F5? Sep 3, 2008

Thanks Howard and Matthias. Can you try hitting F5, to see if this removes the balloons from your cache?
