well for me it's positively linked to youtube.

If I have a youtube page open it comes up. Restart firefox with no youttube - no login box.

Any thoughts on the subject welcome.

From the forum owners homepage
the Graduate projects section:

Inhabited Web
I had this idea about a collaborative web application for many years. In short - the system embeds a small, simple visualization into web pages, next to the browser's scroll bar. Triangles are used to represent single users and their position on the current page (scroll position). Collectively, this allows you to see where people are congregating on a web page - perhaps next to a great deal, interesting news story, or funny video.

I believe this is something Chris runs from time to time to gather data for his studies.
http://slinging.org/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1257109223/1#1

I'm guessing some action we perform prompts his application to ask for a login.

yep we'd pretty much come to that conclusion - question what else is it reacting with.
it's the little arrows bobbing up and down on the right side of the page.

If I ever figure out how to remove it I will.

But I think it's embedded at the server level and not as part of the forum controls.
Chris did say he was going to remove it, but so far it's still there.

I think - personally - it's reacting to something google adds does. But I do only ever get it if I have a youtube window open as well as slinging.org - so who knows.

AGH. i just had it so-SHOOT- bad that i had to close and reopen the window. everytime i close it it reopens. it happens maybe once or twice every page usually though. I'm using firefox, which is worse than chrome for this problem, however, chrome is glitching on my computer.

it does but only once in a while. maybe it's affected because you log out/into some different account somewhere else, and then this account goes screwy?

I've had a good look at the forum controls and unfortunately I can't remove the arrow thingy.

Looks like it's installed on the server directly and only chris has access to that - and it looks like he's either on some project somewhere or on holiday (not sure there's a difference with chris - there's a man who enjoys his work Smiley

But it is definitely reacting with software on people's computers.
If I had access to a couple that did it regularly I could track it down, but only one of the 4 computers I use regularly has ever shown it and that is directly linked to having youtube open at the same time.

Sorry guys I am trying.

He was just in Atlanta, Georgia giving a presentation on a new static display technology. Pretty cool stuff, actually.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

I've removed inhabited web code from slinging, so we're now clean.
