Hi Brian Mains,
I am sorry to hear you find our notifications annoying.
While we plan to improve our UI, we currently do not offer an option to disable the notifications. For the time being you can just ignore them as they fade out and disappear in about 5 seconds and are shown as frequent as once a week.

Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed?
