Description Adam Wight 2013-04-29 05:54:30 UTC
Component: UI

The speech bubble icon and "Leave feedback" link in Visual Editor look like they apply to the page being edited.  I was expecting a Talk: tool.

It would be more clear if the text were "Report bug in Visual Editor", but that's annoyingly verbose.  Which is sort of the intention here, I assume ;)  Normally, this link would get buried in a dropdown menu or something, IMO.

The problem is exacerbated if you are sort of blind and zoom in your browser a lot, because the VE feedback link becomes very prominent once the toolbar is wrapped.

The feedback link isn't a VisualEditor item but part of MediaWiki core. Moving bug appropriately.

Adding many blockers of bug 38638 to the list of "easy" bugs, to mark them as candidates for [[mw:Google Code-in]] tasks (gci2013). If you think this bug is not suitable, remove the keyword.
