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've seen a couple people complain that it's not easily visible when authoring a new question. Your eyes naturally wonder down the left-side of the page and miss the checkbox on the right that washes right into the background of the site.

Could this be moved down near the Ask Your Question button instead, and maybe be given slightly more contrast to make it pop off of the background a bit?

It is in its current location by design and very VERY much intentionally.

(also note that this checkbox is not shown at all to brand new users, because we don't expect them to understand what it is, etc. If you want to see that, log out, then go to the /ask page)

I would almost rather see the checkbox moved to the top rather than further to the bottom. That way it would definitely catch my attention more.

I think it could be more useful if it could be a user setting and not for each question.

I agree with TheTXI on this one. – Sampson Jul 16 '09 at 11:44
I think this is a decision that needs to be made for each question asked. – Bill the Lizard Jul 16 '09 at 11:59
