Description Amir E. Aharoni 2014-06-27 11:05:54 UTC
The message Flow-preview-warning currently says:
You are seeing a preview. Submit the form to finish posting this, or click "Keep editing" to continue writing.

This is a bit too technical. Flow is supposed to make things very user-friendly, so it shouldn't talk about "submitting a form", which sounds very HTTP/HTML-based.

It should probably mention the button name and say something like "Click "Submit" to post", or better yet - say nothing at all and make the interface clear without the need for an explanation.
Comment 1 Amir E. Aharoni 2014-06-27 11:15:29 UTC
The qqq for this message should be updated as well.
Comment 2 Danny Horn 2014-06-27 23:34:17 UTC
Amir -- that's a good point, thanks for pointing that out. We'll take a look!
Comment 3 Bartosz Dziewoński 2014-06-27 23:46:02 UTC
Why is Flow hiding the text area when you're previewing a comment, and replacing it with a huge green message bubble? That's confusing. Please just do the normal MediaWiki thing for this and no complicated explanations will be necessary.
