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

If you flag a comment for a post with score of at least −3, for example this one (the links is for Stack Overflow's 10k users), the dialog box will appear as in the following screenshot.

It would be preferable not to change the transparency of the dialog box, as it doesn't have any purpose. I don't need to be reminded I am flagging a comment for a post with a low score; that is already evident by looking at the post itself.

The screenshot has been taken on Safari 5.1.7, but I get a similar effect on Google Chrome 20.0.1132.57, and Firefox 14. (I know, Firefox 14 is a beta version.)

As side note, the editor buttons cover the dialog box, in the last two screenshots.

The flag pop up on heavily downvoted answers has grey text says status-completed – slhck Jul 23 '12 at 11:16
This is not about grey text; it's about the transparency of the dialog box. Looking at the screenshot shown in the other question, it doesn't seen the dialog box's transparency is altered. – kiamlaluno Jul 23 '12 at 11:20
Out of curiosity: what would you have flagged this as? – Pëkka Jul 23 '12 at 11:42
@Pekka I was flagging a comment, and the first one is a reply to a comment that doesn't exist anymore. – kiamlaluno Jul 23 '12 at 11:48

Opacity for the comment flagging dialog will be fixed in the next build.
