I'm not too fond of the new appearance of the reporting link. In my humble view it is a bit too present.

IMO ...The old font and colour are better than this.

I do not agree I think this smaller and darker font (in my browser) is better than the previous one for the "report to moderator" link and will lead to less wrong click on it instead of "Reply" button.
The new style better emphasizes the body of the messages and put the user information on the background.

Regards
Michel

Not sure which one you were referring to, Michel, but the way it is now (link back to the right-hand side, instead of left-hand) is nice, I think!

Doesn't this mean it is now too present comparing to the previous version?
If this is the case, I think it this "report to the moderator" (as I interpreted "reporting link") is now better; if you think it is nice, you are completly agree. Wink

Correct. When I posted my initial remark/complaint, the font, colour and location of the link was different than it is now.
The current appearance is quite nice, I think.

As it is now (blue "Report message to a moderator" and, apparently, restored font and its color), I think that I preferred the previous version (those "gray" shades). "Report message" link should be moved elsewhere (it was OK as it was yesterday) because - not that many messages are reported to moderators, and if this link is so obvious, people might click (un)intentionally & too frequently.

[EDIT] For example, check this Frank's message. He posted a link to "Simple" (in search for a "simple DBA" term) and - right beneath it - there's the "Report message" link. Confused me at first sight, as I thought that he actually posted 2 links (until I actually read what's been written).

[EDIT #2] Eh? Much better now, versions are changing as we speak Razz But, what happened to an image I inserted? Is there a problem with images being attached to a message?

Hm, there seem to be some confusion..
What you are describing is exactly what I saw yesterday!
The smaller gray link is what I see today

In that case, check the image in my previous post (it seems that Preview didn't display it so - disregard the second edit).

When you look at the source of the page, you see that the color is "#202020" which is a dark grey and font definition is "FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana,Geneva,Lucida,'Lucida Grande',Arial,Helvetica,Sans-serif" but maybe you, Littlefoot, have some browser configuration parameters that force the color and font of link (<A HREF...>) text.

Actually, this is done by CSS classing (as it should be). This means that the (nesting of the) class of the link should be interpreted correctly before its format can be determined.
Try to reload everything in your browser (shift-F5 or ctrl-F5, cannot remember which), bypassing any cached resources.
