What feature should be changed? Please provide the URL of the feature if possible.
==================================================================================
The "get involved" banner on the side of the landing page, just below the fold looks like an ad. It should be removed.

What problems would this solve?
===============================
decultters the page

Who would use this?
===================
everyone

What would users see?
=====================
one less image

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
===================================================
It prevents the user's subconscious ad filter from triggering.

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================

This image, specifically.
Thanks for sharing your feedback, Chris. Many people have been requesting this, so there will is going to be some hesitation to removing it. But you raise a good point. We should take another look at how this is perceived by our users.

Now that Australis is out the door, I'm open to doing a round 2 of MDN homepage design edits. I have thoughts. Should we perhaps look into doing a small design audit based on feedback since launch?

I agree, for what it's worth. We should do a few tweaks; we've had lots of time to judge what works, what doesn't work, and what could use a nudge.

We'll come around to another homepage revision later... this particular nit isn't going anywhere until then.
