I received an agree and when I was going to thank the agree-er, I almost hid my question because the 'Hide this answer' button is right below the 'Thank' button and they look very similar. It would be a good idea to move the 'Hide this answer' away from the Thanks button, just in case.

Thanks,

Claudia

Good idea Aug 21, 2008

I'm all for it. I have never hidden an answer so far, but I reckon once you have hidden an answer, you can't unhide it unless you submit a support request, which can take longer than a normal KudoZ cycle. It would be nice to prevent stuff like that from happening.

Actually Aug 21, 2008

I think I didn't make myself clear. I meant that the 'Hide this answer' button is in place where it could be mistaken for the 'Post and send response(s)' button. Early today, after writing my response, my hand automatically moved the pointer to the 'Hide this answer' button because it is on the right side. I guess it's a subconscious thing.

I support this suggestion Aug 21, 2008

I pushed the "hide answer" by mistake more than one time Now, I always double check before I push "Post". Sometimes the two buttons are one bellow the other and it can be confusing.

Useful suggestion! Aug 22, 2008

Dear all,

I have copied and pasted your comments regarding the proximity of both 'Post and send response(s)' and 'Hide answer' buttons and the setback this represents in our todo list for further implementation.

Thanks for bringing this into our attention!

Regards,

Lucia

Thanks for your feedback! Aug 26, 2008

Two actions were taken in response to this useful suggestion:

In the answerer's view of the answer box the "Post and send response(s)" button was moved to the right of the peer comments box.

Extra space was introduced between the last peer comment and the "hide answer" button.

Regards,
Enrique
