I don't think that the option shouldn't appear again. We want the user
to be able to change their setting, since they could have marked the
bug mistakenly, or it could happen that the bug stopped affecting them
for whatever reason.

right, thought as well hence the big list of questions, it would be interesting to hear people's views on the same.

Isn't that a pretty far out corner case? Shouldn't LP be designed to
work the way majority of its users are going to be working?

Clean interface, efficient design are everything...

At the very least, it should be moved to a screen that is accessible but
not righ ton top, I think. But that is kind of moot, since it would
require a lot of redesign of LP. The last facelift that LP got was
great, but it needs to have an interface that, IMHO, is exclusively
AJAX-driven. There is far, far too much overhead in the page reload
round trips for, say, 70% of what LP does.

I wouldn't be sure about that... I think even I've mis-clicked a
few times while working with bugs. Being able to reverse something like
that would be important.

Then again, perhaps a "works for me" button would be in order too.

Tom landed fix which addresses all these problems, and lets you
revert, landed a few minutes ago, and should bubble up to the surface
in the following days.

I'm looking forward to your comments!

Default Once bug affects you has been chosen it shouldn't appear again

Hi all,
Somehow the single toggle button for affects me and doesn't affect
me doesn't gel. It doesn't tell me that what my current status is.

The possibility to confuse users is still there. It should be much
more identifiable. A much better solution perhaps to have some sort of
colour change or something which tells the user at a glance which bugs
are affecting him, both at the bug page itself as well as overall look
within his bug page as well.

What do you guys think of this idea?

Yes it does. When the bug is marked as affecting you, it says "This
bug affects me too" and when it's marked as not affecting you it says
"This bug doesn't affect me". It also displays an icon when the bug is
marked as affecting you.

Bear in mind that it's always difficult to display many different
functions on a single page and have them all stand out. The bug page
is quite full.

I'm not a huge fan of using colour coding to represent states. I
almost always find it confusing, rather than helpful, since it makes
me remember the arbitrary colour mapping for every bit of information.
I am also not sure that it's very important to display to the user
which bugs affect them (other than for the purpose of allowing them to
change their selection). Can you imagine a use case for looking for
bugs which you have already marked as affecting you? Maybe we should
make it possible to search for such bugs, in case you want to review
them. For the bug listing, I much rather save the space for displaying
information about what bugs are affecting other users.
