“Actually no he did not….. I said….
    “Might I suggest that you at least move the video box from the bottom of the front page to the first thing you see on the top left, under the menu, and above the news and forum feeds.”
    but at least now he has explained why he did not…”

    Well, au contraire. I’m not sure I understand your point but I’m just trying to say that from my perspective the video can only be watched once, and then it’s a pain. I’m no webmaster, I’m just a user here and from my perspective something that gets in the way once it’s been used isn’t extremely useful… but that’s just me… 🙂

    About the smaller video: I assumed your idea was for the site to look this way *post* log in (or all the time for that matter).
