Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Is there an easy way to hide informational banners (like SOTM announcements which are nagging me) on the main site? The main sites's source code shows several ids like banner and _osm_banner_sotmasia2017 - can they be used to hide the banners?

A Mediawiki extension for example provides the use of a cookie named dismissSiteNotice to achieve the hiding of notices.

Are you actually seeing banners more than once (or once per browser instance)?

yes - for example after a forced page refresh with CTRL+F5

For info, I'm not seeing recurring banners after ctrl-f5 in 3 browsers here (SeaMonkey, Firefox, Chrome).

Richard's answer works for my old opera 12.17 ;)

You could use a browser extension such as Stylish to insert this CSS rule on all pages at openstreetmap.org:

#banner { display: none !important; }
permanent link
