Quick Look: Improved UI for Exiled Users
2021 Week 8

Starting in 2021 Week 8 (Late February), "exiled" users who are related to an object (for example, as a subscriber or reviewer) but do not have permission to see that object are shown more clearly in more places in the UI. In particular:

  • Username mentions (@username in text) identify the user's status more consistently and more clearly, and hovercards have contextual hints.

  • The "Subscribers" curtain panel shows the status of these users more clearly.

These changes aren't exhaustive, and are just intended to cover the most common cases. See T13602 for more context and future plans.
