How to turn off the share sidebar

    The new "share" sidebar is very annoying to me. It waits a few seconds then jumps out to make you notice it. Every. Single. Page. View.

    Is there a way to turn it off? Apparently it can be done forum-wide, but a personal setting works fine too.

    I don't know what you're talking about, because I block those things in every page via browser add-ons.

    I could recommend some browser add-ons for you, if you're interested? What browser are you using?

    I'm using Chrome.

    (Well, technically I also use Firefox but on Firefox I have noscript installed and it transparently blocks it. And if it didn't I'd use remove-it-permanently.)

    In chrome you've an add-on called "HTTP Switchboard". It's the best Ad-on I've ever used, in any browser. It's kind of like Noscript. Give it a try!! Also, for an adblocker, use ublock (microblock, mublock). Much better than* adblock plus.

    Let me know what you think.

    *Thank you Dembadon :P
