"This site was just updated" popups are annoying

Right, but why agonize over users who are intent on shooting themselves in the foot? As long as they have the notice, we could say “well, we did warn you”… I support de-modal-izing this:

We could add some words to encourage users to update, e.g.

:arrows_clockwise: We’ve updated this site. Please update, or things might get weird :alien:

Not that exact language, but you see what I mean :wink:

I would like us to improve this for the current release, how much work is this in your estimation @sam… I think the old school way

leaves a lot to be desired and I much prefer @awesomerobot mockup. Not proposing a huge change to behavior, just get rid of the jarring big ol’ giant OK/CANCEL dialog?

Probably not too much work to add this in, @martin can take it next week.

This change has been merged:

Now the popup shows at the top of the page and is much less in-your-face than a modal :slight_smile:
