I have to agree, it's a pain in the butt. I'm used to doing things a certain way after all these years and suddenly having to do the opposite is a nuisance. I don't understand why this was needed. It wasn't broken.

And yes, I read the blasted patch notes. It's muscle memory. <.<

The only thing that was fine was adding more spacing between the buttons. Other then that the swap was the only part not needed.

Agreed - I was hoping they would add some space between the delete and get attachments buttons so I am happy about this.

But the swap is really dangerous because people are used to the old layout. I don't undestand why they had to do this. Just adding the space would have been great.

<cynical mode>

Because of all the complaints, and the fact that changes must not ever be undone, in three patches from now we'll get a big purple circle around the delete button, covering the claim button so it can no longer be used.

Four patches later they will reduce the size of the circle so we'll be able to claim items again, while the dangerous delete button is sufficiently marked to protect us poor, confused gamers.

And I think I will leave cynical mode active for a while. It seems appropriate around here.

This is quoted directly from the launcher. "Updated the mailbox user interface button layout. "Get all attachments" is now next to "select all". Additionally, there is now more space between the "get all attachments" and "delete all" buttons".

From this, we can see they were trying to make it easier for us, by putting the "get all attachments" and "select all" beside one another, probably they thought so we had a shorter distance to tick both boxes. Or, it's like what Cyrus said, and they were getting complaints.

I almost deleted 8 million today, luckily I caught it by the popup.

If I were tired or something in the middle of the night I would probably have deleted it.

Change this please!

They can't change it, because people that might have already gotten use to the change will bring us right back here.

I read the patchnotes and still almost accidentally deleted my mail. As others have said, muscle memory. I also really see no purpose for switching those particular two buttons around... spreading them further apart sure, but swapping them? Oh well.

I read the patch notes & new about the change. As many have pointed out this is about muscle memory & habit. Over the six years I have played this game, I have probably click the attachment & delete buttons thousand if not tens of thousands of times. Swapping the buttons position was not needed and a stupid decision.

I'm not arguing this it's a cruddy decision, it sucks, I agree, but there's nothing that can be done. Like you said, this is about habit, a "bad habit" I we (myself included) have gotten into with clicking the buttons without reading what they say. If we took our time, read the buttons, this probably would have been avoided.
