I go to a proposal, select the off-topic tab, then visit a different proposal and the off-topic tab is still selected.
I can imagine that this was a decision rather than a mistake, but it seems unintuitive to me.
Anyone else agree?
This is the [by-design] behaviour across all of the sites. When you select a tab, you are selecting a preference for that to be your default tab. I admit that it is not as intuitive on area51 as it is on all the other sites, but I feel it is still a reasonable assumption. Especially for users who are familiar with the other sites.
