Comment (by mcs):

 Replying to [comment:55 mcs]:
 > I think the only reason it works how it does right now is that we were
 trying to stay faithful to Linda's design, which tried hard to reduce the
 number of clicks needed (by removing the wizard and generally streamlining
 things). But let's require the second click. Kathy and I have two
 questions though:
 > a) What do you mean by "then showing the available bridges?" Do you mean
 offering a choice of bridge types (e.g., obfs3, obsf4) or do you mean
 showing bridges that the user has already obtained?
 > b) What text should we use for the radio button label? Introducing
 "BridgeDB" without explaining it does not seem ideal, although the current
 design is somewhat cryptic as well. And it would be nice to keep the word
 "Request" because it avoids making the user think they need some knowledge
 ahead of time to use the middle radio button. Anyway, Kathy and I will see
 what we come up with for the label.

 Assuming you didn't have anything fancy in mind for "then showing the
 available bridges", here are a couple of possibilities for the radio
 button and button labels:


 Thoughts? We are open to other ideas as well.
