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 love that I can check the answer I want to close that someone else found. But can you move the preview below the radiobuttons and shrink it a little bit?

The reason for moving the preview below the radio buttons, is so the users don't have to chase the interface when it pushes the buttons below the preview.

Check out the UI on this question.

can we have, like, a grace period of say .. at least .. 15 minutes .. between the time we deploy an improvement, and the time the complaints begin? – Jeff Atwood Jun 2 '10 at 23:27
No, you may not. The Viking has spoken! – Ólafur Waage Jun 2 '10 at 23:29
BTW took a while to find a question with duplicate close and points to two questions and it works great. I actually like this way of voting to close Jeff my good buddy ol pal. – Ólafur Waage Jun 2 '10 at 23:36
@Just testing the UI on your question ... was curious to see how it works – waffles Jun 2 '10 at 23:38
@waffles no prob. – Ólafur Waage Jun 2 '10 at 23:39
Added another one, so you can see with two questions. – Ólafur Waage Jun 2 '10 at 23:39

Since we are criticizing (with viking sanction), can you skip the extra click on "vote to close" when we close as duplicate?

I understand it's necessary for other reasons where you have no confirmation, but it's useless on voting to close (because there's another "screen" where you can click cancel), and I'm trying to cut down on clicks.

Juan -- we need to make sure you've READ the duplicate. Clicking != reading. Clicking, seeing the post load, then reading it and clicking vote to close, is what is desired here. – Jeff Atwood Jun 3 '10 at 0:30
No no @jeff, I meant the first click, the one when you click the radio button "exact duplicate" and then click vote to close (this one is useless), not the one where the duplicate loads – juan Jun 3 '10 at 0:47
ah, I see, that makes more sense. I'll try to get that in.. – Jeff Atwood Jun 3 '10 at 2:20
This has been implemented now. No official announcement, but I noticed it this morning. – Grace Note Jun 11 '10 at 12:16
