    (Almost) like Terr said, get rid of the usenet posts + make it refresh more than once every 3 minutes!
    My own 0.02: Make it scroll horizontally!

    I would also really like to see USENET posts not featured in this AO ticker. I only ever read and post on AO forums, only once in a blue moon would I post in USENET in the ticker, you can't identify the difference between USENET and an AO Thread. If you aren't gonna get rid of them, it would be good if somehow you can make USENET posts stand-out, so we know that they are USENET posts - something simply like a (U) at the begining or end or something.

    I noticed in the ticker you added the username of the person who last replied to the thread. Very nice addition, makes it much easier - keep the innovations coming!

    Greetings All:

    Ok, I've filtered the usenet posts out of the ticker, and added the last user to post as well. Hope that helps!
