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

After some rep threshold on SO, I noticed that the bubble tips were gone, that remind one to accept upvoted answers or upvote accepted answers.

However, when I switch to SU, SF or meta, where I didn't reach the threshold so far, the balloon tips are back again, but this time, they're really annoying, because they don't add any value for an experienced user.

Therefore I suggest, if a user has coupled her accounts, that she isn't provided the balloon tips, if her rep threshold is high enough on any of the sites.

Yes!!! I just wanted to ask for the same, but found this existing question. Imagine Jon Skeet coming to Bicycles SE and asking a question. Then he upvotes an answer and sees a hint about accepting it. "Well, thank you, Cap" - he will think. Any user with high enough rep already knows how to play this game, hints are useless and only distracting to them. – sharptooth Oct 27 '10 at 7:06
