that a "splash" screen would reach more users.By splash, I mean a
full screen popup with, let's say a 10 second timeout. This would
be prior to TB start. If this is too invasive to workflow, we
could have a "Do not show this screen again" button. That way it
would be a one time annoyance.
Even with a checkbox to disable it happening again, I am strongly
against having a splash screen. Anything that has a negative impact
on the user's workflow is something we shouldn't do. We are a free,
open source, no-ads product, but this kind of popup screams
advertisement (Even if it isn't in reality). We want this to be
visible, yes, but not get in the way.<br>

BTW the start page only appears in the messagepane, I personnaly
have had that disabled for years.
Yes, we need metrics on that, but I have a feeling most people
haven't tampered with that setting.<br>
