We currently have plans to add a close button on the messages so you can be rid of them faster.
Be aware communicating with players is paramount for us and it's difficult. We need to let players know about:
1. Pending downtime.
2. New events we decided to add.
3. Exciting things going on players may not otherwise see.
We want this communication to be noticed, but we don't want to be pests during your play. Do you have ideas to help us accomplish this?
