    Sorry, but really don’t like the slideshow method. Please just post the pictures and the text inline.

      YES! Please. At least give us the option of not doing a slideshow.

        Can I ask why you don’t like the slideshow format?

          Here is the reason I would prefer not to have the slide show:

          -It’s slow – for each slide it has to load additional links and advertising
          -It’s in a window that is too small to show all the information. There are both scroll bars for the slideshow window, THEN there are scroll bars for the page WITHIN the slideshow window. I gotta scroll every which way to see everything
          -I can’t see everything at once and if I want to go back and look at another picture, I have to click back and wait for that slide to load (with all its other links and advertising)

          Just give us the pictures and text if you can please!!

    Yes yes yes! No more slideshow format. Hate it.

    Oh, and the slideshow doesn’t play nice with mobile devices.

    Love the cold cuts skull! Here’s something else you can do this Halloween that’s very entertaining: be a Ghost Patrol agent! It’s a creepy cool mobile experience for the whole family. Play it alone in the dark if you dare. bit.ly/VW6yAn
