Nagging invites[edit]

it's more a nagging pop-up/layer, than an invitation. Read, there's an article for this behavior.
So please name the used layers/divs, that one could hide it out via Greasemonkey. Brilliant, Let them have cake greasemonkey tutorials! ;-( as in the annoying discontinued Article Feedback Tool.

Wikipedia says: "Nagware (also known as begware, annoyware or a nagscreen) is a type of shareware that reminds (or nags) the user to register it by paying a fee". That doesn't sound like this at all. In any case, you can find the names of the divs by right clicking and then inspecting the element in pretty much any browser. Steven Walling (WMF) • talk 07:02, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
84.*, terminological quarrels aside, it seems that it's intentional for this piece of software to get in the way of editors: «places the call to action between a user and their goal -- to make an edit to a page». --Nemo 06:23, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
