planet5D experiments

In case you haven't noticed, we're trying out a couple of new tools on planet5D.

the first is the wibiya toolbar at the bottom of the page. It is the last thing to load on the page, so it shouldn't slow your response time down. It provides some additional features that may increase your participation (Facebook and Twitter buttons), the translation tool, popular pages to see what others are reading and more.

the second is a popup that appears only if you navigate to the navigation bar in the browser. It is a little thank you note from us – with a reminder that you can support planet5D by buying thru our affiliates. It kinda bothers me that there's no way to set it to only appear every 30 days or something – and I've written to the authors to see if that is possible – but it shouldn't get in the way of your planet5D experience. If it does – please let me know!!!! I don't want to piss people off so much that they don't come back, but we are experimenting to see what works and what doesn't.

please don't be afraid to let us know what you think down in the comments! We read (and appreciate) every one of them – even the ones with constructive criticism!
