I've now noticed when clicking the flagging dialog for comments that a new animated popup appears now. Is this going to change in the future for the other flagging dialogs such as questions/answers? I don't see a changelog anywhere.
Yes it did. I did it.
When the Code of Conduct ships, we're replacing "rude or abusive" with two new categories which you could describe as "rude" and "abusive". As part of that change, we also:
- Updated the dialog to use our new "Stacks" design system.
- Restructured the language so it's answering a question rather than completing a sentence.
- Added a "Thank you" message when you flag.
I don't believe there are plans for the other dialogs at this point, there's nothing on the August plan, but I would love to see the other dialogs use Stacks.
The new flagging dialog has a vastly reduced clickable area
and, not to put too fine a point on it, that sucks.
In most other similar prompts on the site (e.g. the previous flagging prompt, if I remember correctly, or the vote-to-close prompt) the text below the headers is clickable, i.e. the area in blue:
Not so in this incarnation as currently implemented (where only the headers are clickable), turning flagging into a precision-pointing job that it absolutely does not need to be.
I'm also rather miffed by the move of the
flag button from the right to the left, which is inconsistent with the action buttons on other prompts (again, the vote-to-close prompt). If there is an upcoming overhaul of all action prompts to move action buttons to the left then I guess that could make sense, but honestly... why? Actions move from left to right, and this prompt is backwards.
And I'm also not a huge fan of "Not relevant" versus the previous "No longer needed", which I feel was a bit better, but that was also a weird compromise to begin with, so hey, why not.
It did change, as already noted.
One request: can we make the font used for the explanations a little bigger? We have room, and this is hard to see (for some people on some devices, at least):
We've got plenty of width, and enough spare height that bumping that up a couple points won't overflow anything. Can we make it bigger?
Or, at least, black? I can't tell, but this kind of looks like that gray-on-white trend that's lately been popular among designers with good vision. Could you help the less-fortunate a bit?
The (current) corresponding text on post flags is easier to read.
Flagging box appears off-center
Free hand circle over the flag that I clicked on with indicated bounds of the center content div.
Screen resolution: 1600x900.
This is so far off-center I feel like I have to turn my head in order to engage with the dialog box. I can understand not wanting it to appear on top of the comment being flagged, but this is...excessive.
