Hi there @Oakmasta
This has nothing to do with advertisement, it's a notification feature inside Kick 2. The display message will change over time and it's a feature to let users know about news, updates & release of new presets packs ( that you probably saw for the current notification & assimilate to only advertisement ).
Once you set the notification message as "READ" within this pop-up window area, the red dot shouldn't blink anymore & you should not be bother with the same notification again unless a new one comes in.
I don't know if there's a way to disable this, honestly I don't find it that much intrusive & I do think it's a very common feature implemented into plugins & software by now, even payed ones, for example when you fire up Presonus Studio One Pro, the full right hand side of the welcome GUI is just links about news & products.
Anyway, perhaps this might fit into feature request to have a "enable/disable" notifications in the settings ( unless it's already there & I missed it ) @bryan_spence ??
