Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

A small usability thingy is bugging me having filed over 140 bug entries: When creating or editing a bug entry I need to scroll quite a bit to hit the save button beause of the extensive help text. Noboy is reading the help text after editing bug topics for the third time. It would be helpful to reduce the help text, it is just perceived as noise. Possibly with twisty? Or minimal help text with links to more details?

When Dakar gets released we will see bug reports from users we have not heard from before. And those bug web newbies will need some help text in the form. A twistie solution would be nice if possible. But I find the help text very useful as a newbie and even as a regular user.

The definitions are important, and need to be in-your-face. People often forget the precise definitions, and it needs to be easy for them to get the reminder. Scrolling past it is not a big burden.
