💩 New contributor ( install ) ( GitHub )

Once a stack exchange user makes their first contribution, their user card displays a label to indicate that they're a new contributor for a period of one week. This script changes the icon shown next to the "New contributor" banner from a U+1F44B WAVING HAND SIGN into a U+1F4A9 PILE OF POO.

The hover text reminding you to be nice and inviting you to review the Code of Conduct is unchanged.


New contributor before


New contributor after

I just want to hide the banners completely

See WELZ's Tampermonkey script to hide New Contributor Indicator for that.

On second thought, I don't want to see questions from new contributors in the first place

See Aran-Fey's StackExchange hide new user's questions for that.

I really don't mind the banners, but the popover is a bit much...

Samuel Liew's Reduce Clutter kills the animation.

    Welcome to Stack Apps! I see you're a new contributor here, does that mean you consider this very post a 💩?

    Yes, for a limited time only, you can test out the script on this very question! You should always tread carefully around new contributors (remember to "be nice" and checkout the CoC 💩)
