Urgs. I always edit in classic skin, there you are save from a lot of
this ;-) Well, there are two solutions, either display the new icons
directly right of the lemma, display the new icons directly right of
the buttons or discus the current situation with the people involved
and change it, for example move the coordinates. Actually, I have no
real idea what they are doing there so prominently.
Ok let's have a look at one example:
There you can see (in standard Monobook skin) both the coordinates and the
featured article icon in the upper right corner (by the way a bit misaligned
in Konqueror, I like those errorprone CSS skin hacks positioning content
outside the content frame). It is not exactly aligned to the title line but
is placed in the "site notice field."
IMHO the Coordinate is way better placed below the title line in the upper
The featured article icon and the approved version icon could be placed next
to each other (the approved icon in the right and the featured article icon
would be placed a bit left from it) directly above the title line (and not in
the site notice).
Of course this would involve some small changes to some templates in Wikipedia
but eveyone should be aware that such hacks are not supported by MediaWiki
and that they can break anytime and of course everytime you have a longer
site notice such hacks cause a problem with text overlays (or small screen
resolution with a medium site notice).
So we could take this as an opportunity to get rid of these problems with a
very good point. ;-)
if you would click on the icon, a box would unfold:
May we could add a
cross in the right upper corner wich gets you back
to the originally state upon clicking?
Hm ok this would probably do it. Either a small cross or a small ^ for
retracting the small info box. The close icon should be placed in the right
corner of the box, cause the mouse is pointing there after clicking on the
approved icon. So that you can close it fast and comfortable again.
