Description Warren Block 2015-07-02 03:23:24 UTC
The Severity field currently allows these values: Affects Only Me Affects Some People Affects Many People Many people will not be able to effectively answer this question. Further, the choice of "Affects Only Me" implies knowledge that it does not affect anyone else. This is effectively a multiple-choice question with overlapping choices and missing the one value that is often needed. Patrick Kelsey suggested "Unsure" as the first and default choice, and that makes a lot of sense. Kubilay Kocak suggested "Unknown" which is probably even better. Either of these would replace "Affects Only Me".
