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 tend to hate checkboxes without any <label>. Because basically that means that you have to click a 20×20 px² area to hit the checkbox. Making the texts "Notify" and "daily of any new answers" a <label> for the checkbox would allow you to click the text as well and not only on the tiny checkbox.

Good call, from a usability point of view... – Rowland Shaw Jul 16 '09 at 16:26
This should be default behavior for every website. Just as long as the label isn't abnormally large with no indication of click area. Should be tight around the text. – Wesley Murch Apr 23 '11 at 22:09
Just for the record, Joey, I'd say @Cawas' edit was just fine and actually helpful. What made you write that revision comment? – Arjan Apr 24 '11 at 10:15
Arjas: I value proper spelling. Hence my edit to their edit. – Joey Apr 24 '11 at 10:25
Joey what @Arjan meant was how you implied my edit was not useful on your comment. I'm fine with your edit as well. It improved over mine. And sorry for the bad spelling. I have a thing against uppercasing and sometimes I forget to proper do it in places where it's required. ;) – cregox Apr 25 '11 at 17:50
Indeed, somehow I erroneously interpreted that edit comment as implying that @Cawas' edit was no good at all. But that's not what you wrote, my bad. (Will be cleaning up these comments, some day.) – Arjan Apr 25 '11 at 17:53
Definitely a good idea; both for accessibility and the increasing number of touch-devices. – Phil Lello May 7 '11 at 17:39

Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Which is a perfect fit for me!
