Description OverlordQ 2009-08-10 00:02:39 UTC
While yes I can hide it with user CSS, I shouldn't have to. I don't want to try the beta, you're very welcome, please stop cluttering my portlets.
Comment 1 Andrew Garrett 2009-08-10 00:04:33 UTC
Nonsense, the hide link would be bigger and more obnoxious than the 'try beta' yourself.

If it were a site notice, I'd understand. It's a tiny word in the corner of the screen. If you're that concerned that a tiny word in the corner of the screen bothers you, you can hide it in your CSS.

What hide link? Make it a function of clicking No on Special:UsabilityInitiativeOptIn
Comment 3 MZMcBride 2009-08-10 00:23:34 UTC
Seems like a decent solution would be to implement global preferences / gadgets (bug 20153).
Comment 4 Trevor Parscal 2009-09-03 18:26:53 UTC
What if you click no, but later want in? Is this really that big of a deal for you? Maybe you could add some user css to hide it yourself...

I will warn you though, #pt-acaibeta will be changing to #optin-try in the next few days... but to be safe...

Add the following line to User:[Your Username]/Monobook.css

#optin-try, #pt-acaibeta { display: none; }
