commenting on the last two 



John suggested the following:
Overlay: Part of an application or content that is displayed over the top
of the main content in a secondary window, that blocks user interaction to
the parent window.



Can I change it as follows:



overlay: Part of an application or content that is displayed over the top
of the other content in a secondary window or popup, that blocks user interaction to
the parent window. Note that distractions are not essential to the users task and are not intentionally initiated by the user.



All the best

Hi Lisa,



This is pretty much where I had landed as well - slightly different language but your's is fine too. Comments in line:


moving:  Non-essential distracting content that includes movement. This includes: computer-generated moving images; content that  starts automatically or is automatically updating; and elements that change locations on the screen without user interaction.





Question: Does this also include 'autostart' videos, and animated GIFs? If yes to either, should we capture tah in the language?




messages: Communication sent to or left for the user or the interface that allows interaction of text-based messages. Messages may also be automaticaly updating. Essential system messages should not be tagged as distractions. 





I am concerned that this may be too vague. (What is "communication for the interface"?) If this is intended to cover off real-time communications (chatbots, etc.) then we should say so more explicitly. Previously, we had a value of "Chat" with the following definition: "An embedded real-time communication that may or may not be initiated by the user. This includes but is not limited to WebRTC." I think we should be focused on the "real-time" nature of the distraction more.




overlay: A part of an application or content that is non essential and displayed over the top of the main content in the same window such as a  popup or child window that blocks user interaction to the parent window





Hmmm.... Might I suggest the following: 
Overlay: Part of an application or content that is displayed over the top of the main content in a secondary window, that blocks user interaction to the parent window.



third-party: An advertisement or offer for a product, feature or service or content that is not under the authors' control, that is not essential to the user's current task.





The most discussed of the values under consideration. I am fine with this definition.

Hi Folks

here is a drfat of the new proposals for distractions. (To get the ball rolling)

John is this what you had in mind?

messages: Communication sent to or left for the user or the interface that allows interaction of text-based messages. Messages may also be automaticaly updating. Essential system messages should not be tagged as distractions.
