I have no problem with Inbox notifications, but the reputation score notifications distract me a lot. (the ones that tell you: "+5" if someone thumbs up your question).

After looking through the settings, it seems there is no option to turn off these notifications, but I might be wrong and simply don't know where to look.

  1. Is there a way to turn off the reputation score notifications via the settings on the site?

  2. If not, is there some way to do it via a third party tool such as adblocker?

    Why would you turn it off – Squareoot Jan 13 '18 at 9:08
  • @Squareoot, why would you ask that question – user56834 Jan 13 '18 at 9:33
  • You could tweak this a bit: stackapps.com/questions/3105/… – rene Jan 13 '18 at 11:26

    This is desirable because I don't need to be notified every time my reputation increases. It's a distraction that encourages being addicted to gains in reputation as opposed to productivity. – Warlike Chimpanzee Feb 8 '18 at 16:05

You can use uBlock Origin (Chrome, Safari, Edge and others).

  1. Right-click on the +# green badge, then choose ‘Block element’.
  2. Click the first cosmetic filter in the list.

    If you don't currently have a badge to right-click on, you can paste this into the box.

  3. Create.
