Help link has disappeared
6 points by lojic 4345 days ago | 7 comments
There used to be a "help" link next to text areas that linked to a page with some helpful formatting tips. I still see it on my profile page, but nowhere else.

I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.12 on Ubuntu Linux.

Are other people still seeing the link? If so, maybe you can post your browser/platform to help debug the problem if it wasn't intentional to remove it.

BTW the help link linked to the following:

It's here on Safari 3/Mac.

I can't think of a good reason why it should vanish in any browser. Check to see that the text itself is actually gone and not just the same color as the background?

The only vanishing bugs I could imagine are either having it get shoved behind the textarea or being the same color as the background.

I see the help link on the edit page (I didn't check it before because I didn't have anything I could edit).

But wouldn't it make sense to have the help link on the submit and reply pages as well?

I see it when editing comments, but not on new submissions.
