There is a handy moderator tool that adds a little indicator to the left margin of a post that has deleted comments or flags. This is really useful, as it pushes information to the mods instead of us having to know to go look for it. Excellent efficiency improvement!
The indicator is designed for a window that is 1250px wide, and operates in a reduced capacity down to 1070px. The monitor I'm using to ask this question is 1050px wide (it's 1050 x 1680 in portrait mode for easier document viewing). I also access SE from a tablet that I believe is 1024px wide.
This means I can never see this helpful tool on either of those devices, even if I go full-screen with the browser. It's not like I'm clinging desperately to ancient technology, refusing to give up my 13" CRT that went all the way up to, gosh, 800px wide -- I'm using reasonably modern, normal hardware here. Portrait monitors may be a little unusual (though I know lots of people who use them), but tablets smaller than 1250px (or even 1070px) are common.
I've been previously told that SE site layout is designed for 1024px wide, and that seems reasonably common "out in the wild" based on casual observation. Can we find a way to make some form of this indicator avaialble at that width? Ideally it should be availble at even narrow sizes, but at least 1024px would be consistent with other site-design constraints. Given that it goes down to 1070 now, may we please have 46 more pixels of flexibility? Or move it from out in the margin to under the voting buttons so it makes use of whitespace that's already there?
This problem can't even be circumvented with a userscript right now; people who tried to write that to help me out failed because some needed IDs are missing in the HTML. (I am not a script wizard and am repeating what I was told, but Tim Post was one of the ones who looked into this at the time.) If you can't make it work to your satisfaction at a narrower size but we can get the hooks and a userscript, I'll be happy with that.
