Some forums have bots that parse messages to prevent the Founder & CEO from having to jump in to point people towards stickies, wonder if something could be applied in this case?

That is a good point, but if they have an issue with their eyesight and use a screen reader that may not help. I would say that could be a reason they did not select to contact the broadcaster or report a problem issue using the image links on the feed pages. If an alt tag is not enabled with the image/button, I doubt a screen reader is unable to parse and read it aloud. I do not see an alt tag in the HTML for those image button links for the feeds.

It is rather difficult to miss those buttons if one's eyesight is 20/20 or corrected by some means.

I totally agree on every point, but I assume The Great Blantoni's time is valuable, and if a bot could have done what he did...he could have done...something else. :ROFLMAO:

He's only "great" on his days off like the rest of us. ;) Anyways, it's probably just an edit on two files or a stylesheet to add the appropriate alt tag for those images. Oh, I forgot about Dashboard. Perhaps a few more edits to add on the list of things to do that never ends.
