Ah. OK. Thanks for the info, Sheldon. I got rid of looking at the Share icons, I just have a little "Share" showing there. Until it gets disabled or I can do something to make it work differently here, I'll just delete the extraneous stuff. No biggie.

I watched the first of the new videos, great of course. It felt like visiting with a friend who is showing me how to do something. I'll get to the others soon. I want to have seen that to which I refer others.

Sue, maybe I shouldn't have said I did it, is this a bannable offense????? I blocked the images. They bugged me a lot and I don't do social-share stuff.

Certainly not a ban-able offense We do hope that people don't block ads on KH, as that is our primary means of supporting this website and our work. We try to keep the ads as non-annoying as possible. But if people do block them, so be it. Above all, we want people to enjoy and use KH.

I have set it so the share icons vanish if you resize the browser window to the point where the red background disappears. At least that works for me in Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

A lot of folks are using the share icons to pin things on Pinterest and Facebook. I put these up as a test and it ended up being used so much that I decided to leave them in place. I have noticed some really great older posts getting shared from our forum. After nearly 9 years of being online, this forum is a treasure trove of knowledge so it's nice that folks can dig up some great posts and share them with others.

No I just find them slightly annoying. I tried what Sheldon said and made the browser window smaller, but I prefer full screen. i don't do most of the social network sites, just FB, so won't utilize them much. I'm glad they're able to bring more people to the site though, I'm still learning stuff from it myself.

I agree, Sue, I'm glad they're there...for other people. Pinterest and stuff is a mystery to me, I don't want anything I do connected directly to FB or anything google (I'm always signing out of google search, youtube, google voice) but that's my preference. I hesitate to ask about things because I'm concerned they'll be taken as complaints when they're not. I'm still getting used to how things are here and you can ask about something and that's OK, nobody seems to be offended or taking it the wrong way. That's why I love this site, people can (within reason) do what they want and learn and share and just have a good time.

Whenever I go to Knit Picks to order, I always go through the ad here. The ads that really annoy me are on yahoo and interfere with my email.
