Yes, maybe I was thinking of KDE's "don't skip this step" and
mis-remembering the details of how it looks.

How it looks doesn't really matter, I just think the current notice at
the top of the Enter Bug page is almost invisible and should be more
prominent.  Another option would be to add some of the first few
sentences from

"Before you report a bug, please check the list of well-known bugs
and, if possible, try a current release or development snapshot.

Before reporting that GCC compiles your code incorrectly, compile it
with gcc -Wall -Wextra and see whether this shows anything wrong with
your code. Similarly, if compiling with -fno-strict-aliasing -fwrapv
makes a difference, your code probably is not correct.

See for the full bug writing guidelines"

I'll prepare some mockups for people to look at and see if they like it.
