Echo icons for thanks and talk page messages should point to the text
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In Echo there are icons for thanks and new messages on the talk page.‏ They have tips - that is, the main body of the icon, with a smiling face or with three dots, and a little callout. How is this tip supposed to look?‏ Is it supposed to point to the message's text? or the other way?‏ Currently it points the other way, but it makes more sense to me that they would point to the text, as if the text is "talking".

This is also relevant for RTL - currently in RTL the thanks icon points to the text, and there should probably be versions for both directions.

Yes, good catch! I knew this was something that I was fixing as a side effect, but I didn't realize there was a task for it already.

I've confirmed this is fixed in wmf.7 (by going to with ?uselang=he).

@Catrope Early-year cleanup… ;)
