So my question was put on hold.
Call me a newbie (I still am after 5 years); fact is, I didn't read the box with the information containing the reason why my question was put on hold, until I accidentally found out, my eyes (that must have unconsciously blurred that area) accidentally stumbled upon the message.
Is it possible to make it a bit more obvious, so it doesn't look like it's an ad?
It looks like a spammy, trying-hard-to-blend-in kind of ad. Specifically, it'd look less spammy if there weren't funny hyperlinked words like
vascowhite, Rikesh, HAL9000, Ahmed Siouani, 웃웃웃웃웃 confusing those that don't understand your "thing" (being sarcastic here).
It should be definitely moved up, closer to the title, which says [ON HOLD].
The message could be appended as a modification of the question itself in the body of the question, at the beginning, with a special background colour and keep the same font formatting as the rest of the content to make it more relevant to the topic.
