I've noticed that 'action' links (i.e. hyperlinks that allow you to do something, rather that go somewhere e.g. I just clicked on "Add a new discussion topic...") are sometimes followed by three dots, or ellipsis, in Moodle.
I have a few questions about these:
are they used consistently throughout Moodle? And if they are, what is the rule for when to use them and when to not use them?
Why are the ellipsis sometimes hyperlinked, and sometimes unclickable text that follows the link?
would anyone mind if they were removed completely? They strike me as more a desktop user interface metaphor, and I can't recall seeing them used in any web applications.
If they are removed it might be worth revisiting the wording of the links to make their action nature more obvious e.g.
"All courses" -> "Show all courses" "New event" -> "Create new event" or just "Add event"
