I have a huge black pop-up ad across the bottom 1/3 of my browser window when I go to drupal.org. I'm wondering if this is just on my machine or if everyone is seeing it?

Everywhere, I would call it a promotion.

Looking for something like this for D7. Is this a module?

According to innam , you mentioned that you have a huge back pop up.

Well. Nevets says it promotion. Actually what is promotion and why people do like promotion?

Still i won't see any pop up add. This is happen may be i am new in drupal.

But' after all, motivational promotion is not bad when it has something learning and amazing profitable outcome.

You probably have an adblocker (I do and it doesn't show for me either).

The Drupal organization has shut down discussion on improvement of the forums: https://www.drupal.org/node/2536122

It's time to start a new forum somewhere else. The Drupal organization does not care about the forums.

Yes, you are right Jaypan

I have an add blocker add on.

Ok, I see I'm not alone with wanting the ad to go away and I agree with the goal: I want my internet usage to be private and I want control over who stores my data where. We have absolutely none of that and I doubt we are going to get it. However, it is a key issue of our time and I'll sign/write/email my elected representatives.

But the add is from cloudfront.net and the daywefightback.org. I don't know who they are so I'm just happier emailing/writing rather than giving my email to more folks I don't know.

So now that I am inspired to write, how to I make the annoying ad go away and prevent future ads?

I completely agree-- and worse than just not wanting to share my info with yet another unknown entity, I found the box frequently taking over my page on every dang page load and causing ipad chrome to lock up and require a restart. It ended up making drupal.org wholly unusable for me today until I added the following css:

#tdwfb-container, #tdwfb-spacer {
   display: none;
}

I still can't use it on my ipad, but I'll deal now that my laptop is free. Good idea-- but horrible execution.

I just clicked on the "X" and it is now a much small black bar at the bottom.

The first 20 times i did that-- it gets old fast. And it would open up again, full size, on every page load-- which made doing anything serious with drupal.org impossible until i could finally get to a laptop and figure out how to get rid of it permanently.
