I read the Welcome message but I can't find "Extend" in the support forums, so I wasn't sure where to post this. I hope this is the right place. If not, I hope someone can direct me to the right place.
I have not had the snow problem on my wp.com blog (though have had it on blogs I visit/subscribe to), but I have a paid w.org site I'm building, and it's my understanding that next year, come December, it will start snowing until I opt out.
I read this thread about disabling it: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/let-it-snow-widget-removal?replies=3
And others of its ilk.
However, when I look at Settings, I don't see anything about "Let It Snow," so I'm wondering if it only shows up in December? I would really like to be able to prevent this on my own blog and also tell other people how to opt out on their blogs. I wrote this post about why it's so important to me:http://aftergadget.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/waspish-wednesday-how-autoplays-let-it-snow-disable-visitors-to-your-website/
Thanks for any help!
