There is a new type of notification:

Is that really necessary? I find it somewhat vexing.

Counter question … Is it really worth to make a thread about?

I actually find them useful. It helps me to have to not remember who’s new and who just hasn’t been here in a while.

If you don’t like them, I bet the notification has a unique class which you can hide using one of many browser extensions.

For me yes. It has interrupted my reading flow and makes the threads longer. But if enough people think it’s positive, I’m certainly willing to get used to it.

I’m with @Thomas_Do on this.
Fail to see the point.

I’m neither excited nor offended by these messages. As @paperdigits suggested, an indication that a user is new does provide the opportunity to welcome the user.

The messages don’t cause an interruption like a pop-up would, and don’t generate notifications, so they are just about as unobtrusive as they could be.

:slightly_smiling_face: It’s been a while since we’ve seen @elGordo’s brain…can you help him find it?

Being coherent without a brain is a marvel.

I ask that whenever I’m in Jamaica. I make it a point to never be up by 9.
