Well, maybe something like that is possible...but on the other side, we are more than buisy enough with the game itself.
Like I said, the reactions on the site are 90% very positive, and I think navigating is not hard at all either. We are proud to have such a professional looking website, and I believe a "flashy" website suits our attempt of doing a professional quality game well. Of course we cannot make everyone happy.
After all, the news are on the first page and can be accessed without having to deal with the floating menues. Just click on them and hold your mouse still, and it won´t move one bit. The same goes for the menues as well; hold your mouse on a menue-point and it will stay still.
I also suggest you put the forums directly to your favourites, since they will probably be the most important part.
