OK, here are my thought so far:
First, note that the original UI is still in the software, and is the
default. Anyway, I don't like either of the alternates. Just having a
checkbox (which either overlaps or moves the content around oddly when
clicked isn't pretty and will go unnoticed. Thats why I add the "See the X
revision" thing next to it. Also, my variant only works on monobook.
Phillip suggested putting ratings below the categories. Expanding on that,
this seems like a good solution for the alternative UI. Doesn't get messed
up by interwikis and works with all skins. I'll probably replace
$wgSimpleFlaggedRevsUI with $wgFlaggedRevsTagsOnTop. That way, the tag would
be on bottom and the little icon would appear on top only.
As for the tabs, they can stay, as they make things more clear, at worst, I
can make a setting to disable them.

Hi Aaron and the rest,
with your changes to trunk. Well, at last before you hacked some more
;-) The other "new UI" can still be seen at
At this point there are in my view only a few questions left.
The first issue is: what is missing? In my eyes it is just getting the
new UI to work in monobook as an alternative to Aarons original UI,
which is working in every skin), making sure that the old UI is not
lost and integrating this user interface into recent changes and
watchlist, then some more testing, last bug fixes and we can turn this
on at wikipedia.
So the first question: Does everybody share this view? In particular
Aaron, do you want to do some more features? Or some other features?
The other issue is how the new UI will look like. In my view, unless
there are serious problems with the design proposed by Jörg (now seen
), we should go with
this design, which we talked about at length. So, are there problems
with this design?
If yes, it might be worthwhile discussing the pro and cons also in
regard to Aarons new UI (which is also thought out well, but has other
problems in my eyes). If not, why don't we just stick with this and do
it? We are so close! We could flag revisions live on the wikipedia
within weeks! This is what we and in particular Aaron have been
working for, right?

OK, I spend all day hacking at this again.
I've re-added some of the UI
stuff effectively based on my suggestions. However, the little box is
below the title (It's hard to get it with the
title without using nasty
hacks). It is fairly unobtrusive there.
It is only enable for monobook skins for now, and
the regular tagging

Yes, that looks like a feature to me, not a but.
