Make new close reasons dialog experience-sensitive.

I used to click "close" to vote to close things. I would get a tooltip with the reasons for closing, and I'd pick one and press enter, and then I'd be done.

Now I click "close" to vote to close things, and I get a ginourmous tooltip with the reasons for closing and paragraphs explaining each one in detail, and I have to scroll to pick the reason I want half the time.

I think the expanded tooltip is a great idea, but perhaps it should revert back to the original, shorter version for users over a certain reputation threshold, or who have cast a certain number of close votes, or are otherwise experienced enough that we can trust them to understand the close reasons.

  • But I can't find it, and it's bedtime. Pretty recent, though. Lots of people complained about it. – Pollyanna Feb 11 '10 at 7:31

    I'm sure the new close box is truly awesome on a netbook. – Greg Hewgill Feb 11 '10 at 7:34

    @Greg: Yes, it takes up more than my screen height, even on Chrome with bookmarks gone. – Jon Skeet Feb 11 '10 at 7:36
  • I haven't gone to bed yet. Silly me. Here's the dupe, in case you don't want to click "close" and find out yourself: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/38680/… – Pollyanna Feb 11 '10 at 7:44

    @Pollyanna iPhone + SO = a world of hurt. – alex Feb 11 '10 at 8:11
  • @alex no, because we disable WMD when iPhone user agents are detected. And are you REALLY closing items on an iPhone? – Jeff Atwood Feb 11 '10 at 9:53
