I just noticed today at the bottom of threads there is a box called "Threads you might like"

I'm curious to know - does this recommend threads from the same category only?  Is it going to be on all threads?  Is it permanent?

It's new as of this evening!

does this recommend threads from the same category only? 

Right now, yes, but eventually we hope to have them pull based on tags, first, if the thread is tagged.

Is it going to be on all threads?

Yes.

Is it permanent?

Unless there ends up being major reason not to, yes.

Can there be a user option to turn it off? 

It's kind of cool, but I don't like the extra block to scroll though between thread and quick reply. 
Plus it's kind of distracting when you are trying to keep your thoughts about the topic in line for a reply.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

DO NOT WANT.

I don't like it at all. I find it distracting and in the way. Please allow us the ability to turn this off.

Totally agree with everything that's been said so far. I don't like it. It gets in the way. I would like to be able to turn it off! Even if it's just an FOC (or even FFOC) can turn it off kind of thing, like the ads, that's cool too because I'm FFOC.

I find it helpful so far.  Smiley When cruising threads I find it informative, in that it leads to related posts. If I am looking for something specific it helps me stay on that vein of craft or idea. Smiley

I love it so far.  I've already been exploring projects I wouldn't have found otherwise.

So far I find it fun, and it brings craftster's design more inline with other current websites.

But... I don't like other websites. I like C-ster. I can see how it would be nice, but maybe if the Quick Reply was above it? It just makes it more cluttered. I know we're all crafty ladies and we all have tons of clutter (supplies hoarding anyone?) but our online haven shouldn't be cluttered, too, right?
