This just happened to me when going to OpenStreetmap.org on a new browser:
![capture du 2016-09-14 15-45-58](https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/925062/18514678/cc84e7ea-7a92-11e6-80c2-cebc5963a3d3.png)
… the usual – maybe helpful but I click them away. ;)

Refresh / close the tab and later open OSM again:

Conference season I guess … clicking X.

Later, refresh / close again:
![capture du 2016-09-14 15-46-39](https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/925062/18514737/08de37b4-7a93-11e6-986b-f7f948459ed7.png)
I especially like the design here :) But again I’m elsewhere, closing.

Refreshing again:

Not kidding – this has got to be a bug.

X-ing it and refreshing one last time:

_Now_ I can go ahead and use OSM in peace. ;)

Some takeaways:
- [ ] maybe just have _one_ banner for all the state of the maps. It could even be customized based on the person’s language/location
- [ ] never have multiple banners where after clicking all of them away, after refresh there’s more coming ;)
- [ ] a nice image like for the SotM banners might be nice for the default intro banner. Or maybe icons for the buttons. Like an info »i« for the »Learn more« and a map for the »start mapping«
- [ ] I’d cut the »Welcome to OpenStreetMap« to instead make the very good short description below more present

(And as always, thank you for the awesome work! :) Hope my feedback helps.)
