Still scrolls, at least it does for me...
Do I need to clear cache or something?
Yes try that.  My developers assure me it is locked and should not scroll.  If that doesn't fix it private email me the details of your browser etc and I'll have our guys check it out.

... My developers assure me it is locked and should not scroll...

Perhaps there is a misunderstanding of the term "scroll"?

1. Scrolls as in: title updates scroll next to the word "UPDATES" in the upper left part of the page/screen, but the UPDATES ribbon is locked to the top of the page (so when one scrolls the page down, it disappears from the screen)

2. Scrolls as in: when ones scrolls the page down, the "UPDATES" ribbon follows and always stays at the top of the screen.

It still does #1 for me (and others).

But it does not do #2 (which I believe Kevin had in mind when he said it is "locked and should not scroll"

No difference on Safari on Mac emptying the cache then quitting and restarting the app.

It's never done that for me. I can scroll down the page and the UPDATES area moves up and out of sight.

The banner will be staying.  It no longer scrolls.  Actually that was not supposed to scroll and we were fixing it anyway.  The ultimate purpose of the one line banner is to let readers know when we have NEW videos and NEW Workshops as well as articles or rantatorials as many times readers miss new things.   One quick check of the banner will let you know what's new.  If you don't like it then ignore it.  This has been a features asked for by many.
Sorry, Kevin, but it does still scroll.

I have no objection to a static banner with left and right arrows to let me manually scroll. But I agree with Dave that anything that moves without my asking it to is a distraction making it difficult to read what I want to read.

The type of scrolling that I find disturbing is Slobodan's first type. The second type doesn't bother me.

Someone needs to tell you that you guys are doing a splendid job.

The fact that so many of have kept coming back for years tells them that. But you're right, hearing it is nice, too!

Thanks Michael and Kevin and all!

Let's term it another way.  The update box should not move when you scroll down the page. The content in the update box will roll over.

Really? The space being used for the "scrolling" Updates is wasted space already...there needs to be a link somewhere to go to the LuLa Home page. It's a tiny, slim horizontal slice at the top of the page (the nasty follow along has been stopped). Is this really a deal breaker?

Jeeeesh, give me a break. Kev is trying to update the LuLa home page and forums to today's web standards...how many web sites have you visited that produce aggressive scrolling and popup ads? LuLa is pretty benign compared to most commercial web sites...

The moment they (Kev and the devs) removed the follow along scrolling (showing up always even after you scrolled down) my criticism of this new "feature" ended...

There used to be one, until the latest change.
Ironically, since disabling the new block via Adblocker, I've now got no easy link at all back to the home page.

Very few these days. Most developers seem to have understood that they're very annoying to potetial customers and don't result in increased sales.

I guess this is what Kevin meant when he asked that you privately email him or is it your need to continually hammer him publicly?

From a simplistic perspective if the vast majority don't have a problem and a user has one then logically thinking the problem lies at the users end? I don't see this problem using Firefox or IE. If I did then I would be looking at what plugins I have installed in the browsers. Blocking all adds isn't a remedy imo.

It scrolls on Firefox. I don't care one way or the other. The color is unobtrusive.

Didn't even notice it until I saw this thread.  Definitely not a bother to my eyes :)

+1.

And since I can at least scroll it off my screen, I'll "eschew perfection" and learn to live with it.  ;)
