Hi Codecademy, I think you’ve made an amazing site here, and as a first time coder I really appreciate the exercises you’ve set out here. The progression of learning is an amazing motivator!
A far less amazing motivator, however, are the near constant pop-ups in the bottom right hand corner. They happen so frequently I’m starting to dread completing any sort of project because I’ll see YET ANOTHER pop up congratulating me for spelling my name right or tying my shoes in a really expert manner.
While I think you were going for being encouraging, the pop-ups have the opposite effect: since they don’t seem to disappear on their own, I have to stop thinking about what I just learned and click them away. I even took a break from learning to come and complain about them.
I can see I’m not the first to poo poo your pop ups, and I doubt I’ll be the last, so can we please get some sort of indication of whether or not adding the option to hide automated praise is on the cards?
