After recent redesign, the buttons in review queue [No Action Needed] and [I'm Done] look almost the same. I would start competition if you can distinguish which one is disabled on the below image (but I believe the sharp eye of reviewer can find some differences).

Can we get this improved, so the difference is obvious on the first sight?

Ubuntu buttons

For comparison example screenshot from superuser makes it much easier:

It is not problem for me, but it might be complicated for new reviewers, since they will not get visual guidance and might get frustrated with non-responsive buttons.

    Yep. In one case, where the comment text had a minimum length, and I'd typed one character too short and hadn't noticed the "1 more character required" line, I just kept clicking on the button wondering WTF is wrong with it. – muru Feb 19 '16 at 22:30

Thanks for sharing this bug. This bug affected a number of Stack Exchange communities, one of which was Ask Ubuntu. The problem arose because the disabled buttons, by default, only changes the background-color. For most community designs, this is fine because only a background color is set for buttons. However some communities, such as Ask Ubuntu, use gradients for the button background. This uses the background shorthand declaration, which always overrides the background-color.

This should be fixed now. Thanks again for reporting it as it exposed a number of communities which needed corrected.

  • And thanks for the quick fix! – muru Feb 22 '16 at 16:22
  • Thanks. Looks much better now :) I noticed there was some change on other sites, but only this one attracted my attention. – Jakuje Feb 22 '16 at 16:23
  • Not sure how to contact you better way, but there is hanging one more "design issue" on meta sec.se. Could you have a look also on that one or move it to somebody else who is responsible for the design on sec.se? – Jakuje Feb 23 '16 at 19:14
  • @Jakuje Ok. I made a comment on that thread. Thanks! – Hynes Feb 23 '16 at 19:22
