      I'm not quite sure why, but something about the way you worded this makes me absolutely crack up.  I suppose because I felt the surprise too.  It used to be much smaller, but it was there.  I think it's to make sure you don't overclick thinking that it's over when it's not.  That's my take.  I don't know.  I suppose perhaps standing back a little while your writing might be good.  As you can see from my one eye I have depth perception problems so it hasn't bothered me.

    Same here pest. I was writing away, and the rotating symbol fired up every few seconds.I wonder if that is why hubpages is taking so long to load. I have found hubpages pretty slow lately. Maybe teething problems with the new interface?

    It was irritating me too, what I also noticed on the last 2 articles published is that I have many readers and my scores are going down and not up, that has never happened before. Am I losing my mind?? First it goes up and then down, maybe I was up to late last night. On one of them the comments are equal to the people so I am a bit confused, maybe I pissed someone off. I have been doing that lately. sad

    That swirly thing is annoying and a little off-putting.  Thought it was subliminal advertising put in by HP

    I wasn't sure what this post was referring to until just now when I added a few capsules to a hub. It really *is* maddening, can that rotating logo possibly be removed please???

      Yes please lets go back to the old worm chasing it's tail whirly circle. Or at least have the new one not come on over the capsule we are editing. please.

    I kind of love the swirly thing - its irritating yet strangely addictive.  Since it appeared I LOVE HubPages and will do ANYTHING to serve them.  Could it be some kind of subliminal brainwashing???

    And it blocks the save button so I have to scroll up or down to avoid it.....maddening I say bwaaaaahhhhaaaaaahahahahaha

    I agree. It's a little much. I thought I was going crazy when I was editing a hub because it kept popping up. I thought something was wrong.

    The darkened backsplash with the HP symbol when saving hubs and within the forums when editing and submitting threads is irritating, as well.
