    What the blue bar does do is cover (and therefore render inoperable) the moderator task bar on my my mobile.

    I'm working with the product team to find a solution. There's no option to dismiss Kai currently. I'll let you all know when I get an update.

    I look at Kai the same way Daniel LaRusso looked at Cobra Kai. I wish there was a Crane Technique for CC....

    @CCadmin_Jon, There's no way for individual users to remove it or your team can't back the update out for everyone?

    I've talked with the developer team about this. We are still looking at solutions.

    What is going to revitalize CC is not bells and whistles, it is the encouragement of thoughtful and interesting discussions.

    I agree, actually. The chat bot is intended to help new users answer basic and common questions so that those aren't asked on the forums. I can see that it's a lot less useful for people who have moved past the sorts of questions a bot can answer.

    It was popping up in the middle of my phone screen when trying to scroll through to see the new threads.

    Are you talking about the "How can I help?" banner? If so, what device and browser are you using. That shouldn't be in the middle of the screen ever. (To confuse matters, there's an introductory video which can be dismissed. That banner can be in the middle of the screen.)

    As a suggestion since you have users here that care.... Have a beta group that is willing to beta new feature. Have old and new users. I am sure you would get useful feedback at the least. Due to my keyboard and positions of the blue line of help. Yes, it's in the middle of the screen. Pixal 3A newest update.

    @CCadmin_Jon - I was using an iPhone 10 with Safari. And yes, the blue "How can we help" banner moved from the bottom of my screen to the middle while I was scrolling. More than once. When I stopped scrolling it moved back. Once my phone is charged I'll see if I can get a screen shot of it if that will help.
