This effect may be justified.

Where I work people walk by a sign that says, "Cafe" to enter the building. They then walk by an open double glass door with people standing at a bar ordering food, sitting at tables eating and with the clank of silverware while passing under a sign that says, "Cafe."
They then pass a large window with a chef behind it making baked goods.
They proceed another 50 feet before approaching me at my desk and asking, "Where is the Cafe?"

I am under the impression that when they see someone at my desk they just turn their brains off knowing I will handle the thinking for them, they only need to ask.
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

We have a horizontal line moving vertically upwards through a console, some of them have a gear wheel symbol. Now if all that isn't enough to attract attention to the available consoles they all have glowing spikes of stuff coming from them, it looks freaking terrible, who the hell thought this up? Remove it please, everyone in the fleet commented on how stupid it looks and how unnecessary they are. What's next, the console jumping up and down doing a dance and shouting out "Over here, I'm the freaking console you need"?

Yeah the spikes are annoying I much preferred the cog wheel but don;t expect anything to be done about it after all what the PWE overlords say Cryptic does

Agreed. It almost seems as though they thought this was a fantasy MMO where this would fit in perfectly.

They listen to our feedback... and do the exact oppersite of what we say we like.

Agreed. At least the old method looked "tech". The new one just looks like the console is on fire. It really takes away from the atmosphere of the game.

Couldn't agree more. Saw my patcher working today, thought "Hey, maybe they realized they made a mistake and fixed it!", and ran into my ready room as soon as it loaded.

Nope, my table and closet are -still- on fire, and no one from Engineering has put it out yet!

Seriously, who thought this was a good idea? And who didn't think making the interact flash an option toggle would have been a better one? I get really miffed every time I look at my crew and see they all have cellphone attention icons bouncing over their heads, but having things flash like they are irradiated and now spew never-ending flames is really pushing me to avoid my ship interior! Makes me think I'm in a tv advertisement.

Wait, am I??
