Question: What does the tick box mean on the fundraising banner?

Fae-6
Hi,

I had assumed that the box to switch off the current banner "Please
share your Wikipedia story" would switch off the banner. Though the
banner hides itself when I click the box, everytime I open a new tab
or reopen the browser it re-appears. I don't understand why the banner
has a switch-off box clearly on it if it does not work.

I don't mind reading banners when they are freshly placed, but I
thought the button existed so you could say "thanks, got the message
now". Does anyone know if this is the functionality that was required,
effectively spamming any active user (i.e. likely to create multiple
tabs and open and close their browser) throughout the fundraising
period with no option but to have the banner resurrecting itself after
you have de-selected it?

Cheers,
Fae
