Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This thing is just a nuisance, I've been contemplating installing adblock so I can just remove it every time.

Can we get rid of this box, or at the least, design it in a way that does not cover the top menu bar? Or perhaps make the dismissal target area larger?

enter image description here

That is all.

I can't up-vote because of the lack of freehand circles. – Octavian Damiean Jan 31 '12 at 14:33
"Click here to remove the notification bar" - seems pretty self explanatory =) Also, this doesn't show every time you enter the chat page, does it? – jadarnel27 Jan 31 '12 at 14:47
@jadarnel27 It seems to at least show when it's unnecessary (like, when you're already logged in, and have more than 20 rep, and have been to chat before...) – Tim Stone Jan 31 '12 at 14:50
@jadarnel27 Yes. Every time I log into the network I see the bar on each of the chat sites. If I dismiss the bar it is removed until I log out and back in again. – Incognito Jan 31 '12 at 14:50
@TimStone That makes sense. It does seem a little odd (especially the 20 rep part). – jadarnel27 Jan 31 '12 at 15:07
@jadarnel27 It appears to be related to the domain. For instance: I have to dismiss after login for chat.stackexchange, chat.stackoverflow, and chat.meta.stackoverflow. – Incognito Jan 31 '12 at 15:10
@TheUnicornWhisperer Hope the new screenshot clears up any confusion. – Incognito Jan 31 '12 at 15:18
That is not really a freehand circle but I approve of this because of the nice unobtrusive arrows. – Octavian Damiean Jan 31 '12 at 15:20
Any reason this hasn't been fixed? As a >20 rep user, it's pretty annoying to still get this notification. – Trojan Jan 13 '14 at 5:42
