Hey guys, you may notice a rather intrusive new feature we added recently. We call it Broadcast Notifications, the orange bar just below the menu.

We needed a way to get important community messages out to everyone, and since so many viewers do not log in, mass PM or email doesn't work so well. (Tho we do have plans for a newsletter!)

The bar works pretty simple, when we add a message it will show up at the top of most pages on the site. If you have read it and want to get rid of it simply click the X button on the right. The bar will disappear until a new message shows up. This bar is not for advertising, and is meant as community notification system only. We hope you agree the use is worth the minor inconvenience of having it appear at the top of every page.

As always, please let us know your thoughts about this

I think it's pretty nice since you can easily click the x button and it goes away immediately.

After dealing with other sites that have put up annoying ads at the top bar the fact I can make it go away is a lot better than most sites would give me!

Also I wanted to add that we plan on not using this feature too often, so it's not like there's going to be a different message every day.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

I just don't like the color. It seems out of place really (which I guess is the point), but I would prefer it kept with the blue / black we have already.

I think it's fine in orange, you want it to be seen.

It was annoying until I realised I could close it. For people who are new, or returning to MobaFire, it's a great feature to detail what's important for us to know.
