# 1 How to disable notifications?
12-23-2010, 11:56 AM
This has been an ongoing thorn in my side for quite some time.

There's a bar which I've shifted to the upper left in an attempt to get rid of it completely.

It says things like:

You have recieved +1 Bridge Officer Skill Point.
You are only visible to friends.
<friend XYZ> has logged on/off.

How to get rid of it completely?

This information is non essential, I don't need to see this stuff.

Especially as the first message flashes every 10 seconds in battle.

That's just the chat window, no?

You can set what messages show there, to some degree anyway. Right clicking the tab should bring up options for it. The +1 skill points one, for example, should be part of Rewards. Turn that off for the main chat thing and that bit of spam should no longer bother you.

No, it's not the chat window.

That part is fully clear of unnecessary information,

Press F12 ingame and there's a long bar named Notifications.

That's where all this info is popping up,

I've pushed it as far to the side as I can, but eliminating it completely or resizing it is not possible.

As of yet, I have not been able to delete this UI element.

To get more specific, are you, the OP talking about all of those notes that flash left to right across the screen when you do things??

Pick up Anomalies, Kill Drops and such, "You have aquired So & So." Usually Yellow or Pink Messages??

Think that thing shows system messages.

Unfortunately, and inexplicably, the experience you get is a system message, rather than a minor rewards like it should be. I bugged this during beta, but it never got fixed.

Getting the devs to fix the message categories to something more logical would help to reduce the spam on that window.

I don't think it's a pink message.

No idea how I did that, but I disabled the pink text popups.

The color is always yellow and repeats the messages I cited above.
Now that I really examine it, it does give loot messages too.
You have recieved item XZY (usually anomalies, results of need or greed, loot i get from defeated enemies)

It even does the "non visible" ones over the top of the loading screen and everytime I change maps.

I'm really starting to loathe that bar now.

Ironic that you can "hide" your Rank/XP bar, but the most annoying one of all you can't hide at all!
