Although @Silas Hundt and @Suyeon Khim , I'd kind of like to know why this accompanied a switch in voting interface. It seems too much like solutions, and the ability to downvote is gone (sometimes you need it). To be honest, I liked the old layout for that thing. But the @ is a cool addition. Something I'd do is make the "In reply to" on one line to avoid confusion between it and the actual message.

I definitely agree with Trevor in that a downvote button is needed. I think it should also be available to downvote a solution as well since many people just state the answer in their solutions and don't provide any explanation regardless of how many times you tell them not to.

I also think there should be some distinguishing feature as there was before between upvoting a solution and upvoting a comment. It is sometimes hard to distinguish the two when scrolling down the page as the only difference is the shade of grey the comment box is.

Agreed!

And the preview button doesn't work for me. All I see is a white box like this:

@Robert Fritz Sharky Kesa is not my real name, but rather a nickname or an Internet name. My real name is Sharvil. I have posted an answer to your question by the way.
