Adding horn to help pop ups

I think one of the problems that people are having is that they don't think the pop ups they get that will clearly explain mechanics is important. I think you need to add some sort of loud blast that will both blow out their speakers and grab their attention.

What if I made the help bars like those old-school pop-ups on websites where if you click the X in the top right it bounces around until you get it like 5-7 times. That way its more effort to stay ignorant to mechanics than it is to actually scroll down and read them?

When a new help box pops up they will all pop up in any available space on the screen.

also noticed if u do stuff fast enough in the tutorial being a elder the tribesman still speaks the old text and the new one, so if u finish 3 within no time he soeaks a older message, a old one and the new one spamming 3 at the same time in voice.

I think a simple dialog box when closing the pop-up would suffice.

"Did you actually read this ****?"

and swap the Yes / No to be No / Yes, usually gets people. Potentially add a timer after hitting Yes, potentially add another box afterwards confirming that they read the pop-up...

This is a feature, cloning the funny tutorial man is an option to the fast folk among us. My only regret is that we can't have five or six instances of him talking at once.
