Hey guys, Thanks for the suggestion! We’ve made a note of it. Sounds like the simplest solution would be to move “Report” to the far right side next to “Permalink” so it’s totally removed from the proximity to “Reply with Quote”. Maybe even some additional styling if need be. Either way, we’ll submit it to the devs and try and get it in the queue of maintenance updates, thanks again. :)

Fail. I just reported an item comment instead of replying. Even with the button over the side. Late night in a hurry. Red flashing animated gifs with warning messages please. lol

Thanks Scott. But in my opinion the most important thing is related with the item comments. Not so important (but useful, anyway) here on forums.

I’m not sure “Report” is such a problem on item comments. If you look at the image below, you will see that we previously tweaked it where “Reply” is not only away from “Report”, it’s the last item in the row AND it’s separated by an icon for extra distinction and clarity:

Not saying that it’s perfect UI and it can always be improved of course, but if users are clicking “Report” instead of “Reply” in item comments, that’s generally the fault of the user, not necessarily the UI in this particular instance. Personally, I would therefore deem the forum tweak more critical than in item comments.

Don’t forget, we (regular user) only see “Report” and “Reply” links…

But you (Mod&Staff) can see “Report”, “Edit”, “Delete”, and “Reply” links… ;)

^ That’s exactly the reason for issue on item comments. REPORT – REPLY both having almost equal width, first 3 characters are same and just separated by an icon which seems like different purpose button.

Requires unnecessary attention while replying, like RED pill – BLUE pill :D

(Again, it is about item comment – Not forum)

Why just a confirmation with something like

“you’re gonna report this as inappropriate, are you sure?”

This is what i see:

Makes non sense that on answers the only available button is “report” and that any user can click on it, and it takes action without any further alert notice (as Revaxarts points out). I think any user tends to follow the conversation by clicking on reply on each answer, an then reporting the messages by error. Also, notice that the comment icon is placed between both labels, but is hard to link it directly with any of them.

Not asking for a perfect UI, just for a correct and logical buttons placement. ;)
