"Popular on SAU" popup - how to disable

Recommended Posts

Recently I have started getting a very annoying popup in the bottom LH corner of my screen labelled "Popular on SAU" with a preview of a post and post heading - I can't find a way to disable it nd it's giveng me the sh***s. How do I get rid of it?

Fwiw this has been in the bottom right corner for many years now. It's not new.

Yeah, but it comes and it goes. Some days I see it, others not. This has been going on for a long time, so it's not related to the recent software update.

I use NoScript to kill most site automations on most sites (and block SuckFace and other trackers) so I'm always willing to credit odd behaviour of this sort of shit to my own hamfisted actions to cripple other stuff. But even if I permit everything to run on SAU I still get uneven behaviour on that stuff. That "popular on SAU" thing annoyed me every time it appeared on the lower RHS also. Mainly because it would hover over something else that I might want to click and I'd have to scroll. Trivial stuff, I know.

No, not trivial at all. If I don't hear from people on issues that affect them then I can't make things better. I'm trying to promote content to encourage clicks but I need to balance that with usability and experience. If I'm reducing people's positive experience by trying to get clicks, then its not worth keeping it.

It's hard to keep making the ends meet these days.

I'm happy to disable or try to show it to guests only.

I actually quite like this feature (mostly).

Sometimes, older topics have come that contain DIYs that I know I will need soon but haven't started searching for yet.

In some cases, it does obscure the very bottom of the screen.

What about it gives you the shits? Does it get in the way? You using desktop or mobile?

As per GTSBoy, it seems to always be in the way of something I'm reading or want to click on. I'm on a PC, and until a couple of days ago had never seen this popup. I thought it was something new.

    • Hmm, your car is approx 30 years old. Just put a recond distributor in and move on. It wil last 15 Years easily. Spending money on an ecu and tune {3 grand) to get rid of a distributor isn't smart   Plenty of quick rb30s still using a distributor, and no way will rb25 spitfires fit mate, should be fairly obvious comparing the 2 heads.
    • Hi every one ,if i buy an RB25DET neo +motor harness + ECU ,compatible on a r33 gts-t without modification,thanks 🙂  
    • You’ll need an aftermarket ecu to do any of what you asked about.    platinum racing products makes a crank trigger setup for the single cam rb30 engine.    LS coils would br a good choice as they’re cheap and plentiful, then run leads from them to the spark plugs 
    • Hey Guys thank you for the replies, very much appreciated
    • Hey All,  Hope everyone is well. Long story short, Bought a 2001 Mazda 121 Metro (Small Size Little Japanese Demon) with the most underpowered motor and feel, but still at a minimum a fun car, which makes a 60 zone feel like a space shuttle launch. The few questions I have are, one, got two oil leaks. One is coming from the sump plug (probably incorrect terminology), and another further behind. I was wondering since it is FWD if this could be trans or something else but got no clue, been underneath but a new oil leak started today but could be aircon or something i don't understand. I know one is defo engine oil, but the other, i didn't have time to check. If anyone is from Perth and has some time or interested (which i doubt anyone is) I'd owe them a life debt to look at the nugget. Two, I am deciding if I am going to be a dickhead as per usual and cut the exhaust just before the muffler on the final 90 degree bend and stick it under the car and point it towards the underside of the side-skirt. The internal questions inside this are, one, if the pipe doesn't stick down or though the side skirt will it cause exhaust gases to pool underneath the car (close to fuel tank) and do i keep the muffler to f**k the cops off or do i just send it? Three, my final stupid question. Now i know all of you hate pod filters and they are useless, but the pod filter i've added is definitely better than the stock 30mm pipe of airflow that the air-box was connected to. I have absolutely sketched the daylights out of this by finding out that adding a pod involves attaching pod to maf, and then i discovered an air temp sensor which i may or may not have drilled into my stock intake pipe and just plugged and walked away (yes i know it is bad and it is my first car sooo, sketchy is all i've got). To resolve this, I have got 3 inch tubing which will connect all fine (i've tested it) and made sure it plugs all together with the OEM parts, instead of the 2 inch tube. This new tubing is mainly stainless steel with silicon joining pieces and a somehow very well non-sketchy hole with a rubber seal for the air temp sensor ( i know, how advanced!). Anyway, back to the problem, the connection pipe i have made doesn't fit in the car.. , so does anyone have any ideas about how to go about keeping the pod, with new piping? Anyway sorry for the headache that is this nugget, but, have to learn on a trash car to do something bigger... Thanks all Billy
