cancel button in bug subscribe confirmation page is a freak

Bug #144636 reported by Martin Pool on 2007-09-25
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself
Gavin Panella

Bug Description

The "subscribe to this bug" link (eg has 'Cancel' and 'Confirm' buttons, in that order. For some reason I tend to press the Cancel button, which is on the left. I realize the placement of Cancel buttons is inconsistent between platforms, programs in Ubuntu, and Gnome releases so I won't attempt to argue that it should be on the left or right.

However, as far as I can see this is the *only* Cancel button in Launchpad: it's not on the "subscribe someone else" page or any number of other similar pages. If in every other case navigating away from the page suffices why is there a Cancel button here at all?

How about just one pushbutton "subscribe me to this bug" and people can push it or not.

Changed in launchpad:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Confirmed

I was looking at the ui guidelines the other day and this does clearly contradict them. 'medium' is fine though.

This will likely be fixed by abolishing the +subscribe page.
