Let the opening mesagess to stay longer, or allow people to go back to read them. The screen changes way too fast
Do you find the opening messages valuable? e.g. would you be sad if there were none?
I think that the problem is that if you have them, then make sure that they stay long enough so that people can read them. These can be interesting and a nice way to start entering data. However, if you cant leve them longer then take them away. I find anoying the fact that they come so fast that I cannot read them and there is no way to go back to them.
Hope this helps.
