The red bar at iRV2 was dismissible (there was an x in the corner) and my guess is that you no longer see it after clicking the x. It reappears every 7 days or so and you can click the x again if you don't want to see it. Alternatively you can logout and you will see the bar or you can open the site in a private window and log in again.
We may need to make some adjustments if this is a usability issue for folks, regardless, this is entirely optional and the test results help others.
We have been slowly collecting connectivity info at Campground Reviews (sister site) for several years as reviewers have submitted tests and thought that expanding this to the forums might speed up the process.
Connectivity on the road is a BIG deal for many, especially in remote areas.
As an example, here in the PNW there was still vast areas with no cell coverage. I can't camp on the WA or Oregon coast at a state park with a reliable connection unless I tote along a starlink dish. Good to know in advance.
We have also found that some parks aren't entirely forthcoming about exactly how speedy their wifi is. You may have noticed this as well? Websites often say they have wifi but upon arrival it turns out to be very slow or restricted. We're finally taking matters into our own hands and crowdsourcing the info so that RVers everywhere can make park choices based on good info.
