This is about where you would like to have the commit feed, the part that scrolls  at the top of the site, relocated to. It can't be in the navbar because it looks horrible, please vote an option above, or else suggest your own.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

the options are on there twice... we could easily move them up to that spot, and have the feed not trashin up the navbar, not one other open source site does that, it could just as easily go in the footer, regular users dont care about that crap

I would remove it completely. I can't think of a situation in which someone is all like "oh, man, I REALLY have to know what the last commit to enigma-dev is, oh, wait, there it is just scrolling around, nevermind."
But if it HAS to be around somewhere, I think it's fine where it is.

The purpose of the ticker is to show that something has changed. In a version control system, change implies progress. Progress implies better features. Better features imply better reason to stick around. It's more so users can see something has changed than so they know exactly what the latest commit is.

I am not suggesting removing it, only making it less obtrusive to the navigation bar, thus why I do not have the option to remove it completely or leave it where it is, so to discuss alternative ways of it being integrated into the site design.

edit: Again, all of this should be changed only with the site as a whole.

I see. I say just leave it there then. It's not obtrusive. It's in an otherwise empty spot.

I just believe it is part of what is making people complain that our site looks trashy, because it does look trashy how it is right on the navbar, I mean give it a second bar below the navbar and switch it with the forum nav links, but for god sakes it looks hideous there.  :(

It's still there, even with the latest CSS.
