#4139 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Enhancement: web history display

Reported by: don-vip Owned by: rails-dev@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: website Version:
Keywords: history Cc:


The web history of deleted primitives could be improved by colouring the "Deleted" lines in red. Indeed, given a direct link, with all the text in black, it's not obvious the primitive has been deleted.

No. Just no.

Putting the text in red like that is just horrible - it's shouting "LOOK AT ME. I'M IMPORTANT".

If you want to know the state of the object you need to read what the page says, including the word "Deleted" which appears several times. You can't expect the entire state to be conveyed in massive neon letters so that your brain can take it in with a single nanosecond's glance.

I think you are wrong, IMO the most important information of a deleted object is

1. that it is deleted
2. who deleted it
3. where it was
4. all other info

Currently it takes effort to learn how to spot a deleted node, for ways it's easier on both the history and view pages.


I'm not saying I think the way/relation pages does a stellar job at showing the deletion status. Just that they do it in another way which is fractionally better.
