Remove "Notice anything new" notification
Watched a new user create an account and log in today and saw that she encountered the "notice anything new" alert that we instituted a while back when we first changed the group menu navigation to include files and docs. I think it's time to remove the notification, especially for new users who haven't seen it any other way.
Also notable: I've seen multiple users have this alert on their group home screens and not realize that they can dismiss it. This makes me think that the more subtle alerts you've advocated for in the past may have an unwelcome effect, in that people may not realize they can dismiss them (indeed, I'm not even sure they see them -- most people don't even read the alert). In any case, I still think we should be very careful about thrusting alerts and pop-ups before our members, but I did want to note this for discussion.

I've removed the box, in https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/a19737bb67f4e615616066a7ad16beab1634b76f.
I've made a note to go through and delete the (now extraneous) user meta corresponding to "I have dismissed the message" after release. Before I do, I will take note of how many people actually dismissed the box, as a data point for future reference.
