The Matrix website is aweful. I have tolerated it as long as I can stand, hoping they would fix it. The auto-rotating headlines/articles is STUPID. STOP IT!!! It is irritating and inconvenient and distracting.

I have tolerated other humans long enough. All of you stop it NOW.

BTW, what are you talking about??

Hi Solops,

The auto-rotating elements allow us to show much more in the same space. The feedback we've had on this overall is that it's an improvement over our old more static site. I'm sorry you are finding it so irritating. The auto-rotating elements are only on the front page though, so you can always go directly to the sub-sections if you wish.

Regards,

- Erik

What is the OP talking about that is so distracting? I don't find it bothersome in the very least. This is nothing compared to some other sites I go to.

Yes, yes it is. The scrolling headlines slightly below The Matrix Games logo(upper left corner) is what causes this problem. Matix has FAILED to protect you.

Earlier today we had a massive network outage at 122 of our stores. At first I wanted to blame someone within my company, but now I understand - it was the fault of Matrix.

Click here to learn what I heard when our network went down!!!!

The extra 0.4 mhz that the moving banner is pulling is really stressing your system.
I swear, every post from you is seemingly made up to portray yourself the most extreme type of Luddite you can think up and still maintain a presence online.

I've pointed this out before...

If you look you will notice that there is a "View All" option on the home page that will freeze up the rotating content into a traditional view that can be scrolled through.

I will admit that I'm not fond of the current design though, but that's just the Luddite in me showing LOL
