Since the last facelift of the OTN welcome page, I keep getting the "Take the tour" screen.

Before I can start using OTN, I have to do the following every time when I log in:


  1. Reset the automatic zoom in of the browser window to access the x button in the top right hand corner.
  2. Click the x.
  3. Click on OK close this.
  4. Set zoom back to my preferred settings.


I understand that some people need instructions, but I don't see why I have to deal with the inconvenience. My browser is configured to delete cookies and caches upon quitting the application, which seems to contribute to the problem, however, I consider this a must have requirement, as well as other measures that aim to protect my privacy. So far I have no problems with this kind of strategy with web sites other than OTN.


I suggest to remove "Take the tour" from the login screen. Maybe display it once a week only, or put it onto the user registration screen or Getting Started forum.


At least put the x to close the window on the left.
