On math.SE, when I go to add a picture to a post, the link to the Creative Commons license overlaps the "add picture" button:

Checking a few other sites:

I'm not sure what makes some SE sites have this problem and others not, but a fix would be very much appreciated.

By the way, looking at all of these boxes, something greatly disturbs me:

Why is the title of the box "Add Image" but the button text "Add picture"?

Unless there's a reason for this inconsistency, I'd suggest choosing one term or the other.

  • Real and very annoying problem; affects Stack Overflow too. But, I don't agree with the need for "foolish consistency" regarding "image" and "picture". Using two different terms, in this case, can be useful in conveying what is being done. Both terms are very overloaded in English, using them together removes some ambiguity.

    @Ben "planned" as in "it's currently in review and will be fixed shortly", or as in "6-8 weeks"? Sorry to nag but the second usually means.. never.. from long experience here. (three years are pretty much eternity in web terms) – Shadow 10 Years Wizard May 31 '13 at 22:20
  • @Sha, it will be fixed soon as in days, not weeks or years. – Ben Collins Jun 1 '13 at 13:14
  • @Ben cheers, love the new generation of devs here! :-) – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Jun 1 '13 at 19:08
  • @Ben: It seems like this has been fixed, at least as far as I see. Would you like to post an answer announcing this, which I will accept? – Zev Chonoles Jun 22 '13 at 4:38

Like Jamiec said, this was a layout problem. Fortunately I didn't have to fix it dozens of times :-)

I would say "it'll be in the next build", but it has been deployed for a while now.

There has been a recent change to add that licensing text to the add image (picture?) dialog.

Stylesheets are maintained on a per-site basis, so unless the maintainer of the site-specific stylesheet has updated it, there appears to be a layout problem.

Sklivvz recently flagged this up on skeptics
