Should I put a discreet audio notification when a private message arrives?
Just the first time , not for every refresh...

My Avatar looks Great. Got Google & SevenForums also.

Are you going to add CHAT like in the previous version?

Probably, but in the previous version it was a link to a web page for testing purposes.
It should be embedded in the gadget, but that's a long way from now...

Some people might like that. I'm just not one of them. Could it be turned on or off somehow.

First close the gadget...and:

1. Open shell:gadgets
2. Open the gadget folder and edit the file sevenforums.html
3. There are 3 instances in this file where the height is changeable.
on top, where it says:

Code:
 
  body {
   width:389;
   height:690;
   padding:0;
   margin:0;
   background:#388ec1;
  }
change height from 690 to say...800 or 900, depending on your screen resolution.

4. Also, find this line :

<g:background src=undockedx.png style="position:absolute; left: 0px; top: 0px; width:389px; height:690px; z-index:-999;" />

and change the height here too, from 690 to the same you used above.

Finally, there's also this line:

..... marginwidth="1" marginheight="0" height="660" border="0" scrolling=no frameborder="0" width="360"

now here you must use a height of -30 of the one you used above.
e.g. if you used 800, you should set this to 770.

Save the file, re-open the gadget to test.

Cheers
