Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I tend to use the "Was this post useful to you?" option of giving feedback a lot when I'm on a computer I don't normally use. I think its a great way to give feedback in such a case where logging in on a different computer would just be too much effort than I want to make at the time (so sue me, I'm a user - we tend to be lazy).

What my issue is that the "Was this post useful to you?" message pops up below all the comments. If an answer has 5 comments showing (especially if they're longer comments) I may not even see the "Was this post useful to you?" message on the screen. It just seems out of place and I always forget that its all the way down there.

The comments are good, but if I'm too lazy to log in, I'm too lazy to read through the comments, and may not make it all the way to the bottom before realizing I can answer the "Was this post useful to you?" message.

Perhaps moving it to the top of the comments, but below the post would be more ideal. What does everyone else think?

Maybe they don't want to collect data from lazy people... – Wesley Murch Oct 17 '11 at 17:52
@TimStone Thanks for the link, I didn't see a post with a similar title so assumed it hadn't been brought up before. – Anthony Oct 18 '11 at 13:20
@WesleyMurch The whole concept of getting this feedback is geared to getting signal from the 90% of lazy people who visit the site and don't register (or are simply not logged in). Obviously, they want this feedback. – Anthony Oct 18 '11 at 13:22
