    I've always had a hard time designing a subject/description combination where they're unified, but the description is still optional.

    Came up with this idea of using a note card concept, and playing around with it to make the form fields a little less standard and dry.

    The exact details of the notecard will probably need some work, but I like where this could go. Thoughts?

    I'm a big fan of subtle use of realistic elements. Love the idea of a notecard.

    I love the experiment and the notecard looks great, but I think I'd get distracted by the visual noise when trying to read the bug description. I love these sorts of visual plays elsewhere, but when it comes to big swathes of text, I tend to want the simplest view possible.

    Just my $.02. This is definitely an interesting piece for comment.

    Tim - It certainly makes issue management feel more pleasant. I think "subtle" is the keyword, and as Rich so astutely pointed out, it may need to be just a hair more subtle.

    Rich - The visual noise is the main thing that scares me about this approach. I probably should have clarified that this idea is for the form input rather than the display on the issue detail page. So it's less about reading and more about inputting.

    That's part of the reason I'm not too hot on it, though. It feels awkward to me if it's used on the issue creation page but then not used on the issue detail page.

    I think that making the lines a bit more subtle could help the visual noise problem, but then they might be too subtle. The other possibility that I plan on playing with is increasing the font-size a bit on the description so that the lines are less significant (and hopefully less distracting) in the big picture.

    Exactly the kind of feedback I was hoping for! Thanks.

  5. Updated the subheading so that it wasn't quite so dominant and also reduced the blue lines from 2 pixels tall down to one in order to reduce any potential visual noise.
