I totally agree with this about the UI and wasted space and distractions. > Now this could be minor and the advantages for the newcomers could be more > important than the > small downside for returning users. Well newcomers just need to learn about the functions of the buttons by using them once or twice. Whereas the rest of us have to deal with the wasted space and distraction forever more :) Also, can't the concern about newcomers (and the introduction to the purpose of the buttons) be addressed with the tour application that now runs for new users? Honestly I don't think everyone is going to agree on this. Whatever the XWiki team chooses, will probably be fine. People will complain for a bit and just move on with life. So I think the team should just take the result from the poll and implement that as I think the topic could continue indefinitely :-) Kind regards, Mahomed Hussein Custodian Data Centre Email: maho...@custodiandc.com http://www.CustodianDC.com -----Original Message----- From: users [mailto:users-boun...@xwiki.org] On Behalf Of Vincent Massol Sent: 28 April 2017 09:02 To: XWiki Users <email@example.com> Subject: Re: [xwiki-users] [Proposal][UX] Feedback for Explicit Content Actions > On 28 Apr 2017, at 09:57, Ecaterina Moraru (Valica) <vali...@gmail.com> wrote: > > On Fri, Apr 28, 2017 at 10:47 AM, Clément Aubin > <clement.au...@xwiki.com> > wrote: > >> Hi, >> >> On 04/27/2017 11:58 AM, Ecaterina Moraru (Valica) wrote: >>> Some summary until now: >>> P2: Craig, Olivier >>> P4: Mahomed, Steffen, Jesse, Miroslav >> >> As a «fresh» user, I would prefer P2, mostly because I don’t think >> that every newcomer will have the intuition to look at the top-right >> corner of the page for its options.

I agree for new users but not for advanced. Users who’ve used those button just once know about them and don’t need the labels. I’d go as far as saying that the labels could actually be distracting by taking more visual space and catching your eyes when you look at the UI as a whole and want to focus on the content. Now this could be minor and the advantages for the newcomers could be more important than the small downside for returning users.
