Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Only the text and the radio button of closing reasons are clickable. However, a full-width clickable area would be easier to hit and less frustrating. IIRC, this was also possible in the past.

+1: I don't really care, but you can have my support anyway because it makes sense. – Lightness Races in Orbit Jul 4 '13 at 14:20
I agree this would be an improvement, but feel compelled to mock your ability to use a mouse. It's ok people, I can say that, I have the misfortune of knowing him – thecoshman Jul 4 '13 at 14:20
@thecoshman: +1 for "misfortune" – Lightness Races in Orbit Jul 4 '13 at 14:21
Thank you, @thecoshman. You've never been so kind. – rightfold Jul 4 '13 at 14:21
@thecoshman I suck at precise clicking (I’m horrible at first-person shooters). This is definitely an issue for me. – Konrad Rudolph Jul 4 '13 at 14:23
Why not include the area around the radio as well? That is probably the most common area to click, so that would help too – Cody Guldner Jul 4 '13 at 14:26
sometimes I'm so frustrated because I click right near the radio button instead of right ON the radio button. >.< – Kees Sonnema Jul 4 '13 at 14:29
At the same time, the links in the close reasons should be made inactive. It's rather annoying to hit them when you want to select a reason. – Mad Scientist Jul 4 '13 at 14:35
Please do this on all dialogs, including the ones we see in the moderator queue. It would make it a lot easier to use a touch-screen device. – Bill the Lizard Jul 4 '13 at 15:09
Like @LightnessRacesinOrbit, I've never had a problem with this, but I'll gladly upvote it for you and your fellow mouseically challenged SE users. – raven Jul 4 '13 at 22:02
Seven hours and nobody has complained about the lack of free-hand circles. What's wrong today? – rightfold Jul 4 '13 at 22:08
@rightfold: I just assumed you'd drawn them in white because well, like thecoshman I know you. – Lightness Races in Orbit Jul 4 '13 at 22:13
I've nearly always accidentally click on the area between the title and the description (which is not clickable). – Uwe Keim Mar 16 '14 at 15:50

This seems to have been implemented and it's currently live. Not sure when it was enacted, though (it's not in Recent feature changes to Stack Exchange as far as I can tell), so maybe a team member can include it in its proper spot there?

I don't think it's major enough to be worth including there, it's just a minor design change. (Useful, but still minor.) – Shadow Wizard May 24 at 11:59
