I work on a site with various homepage widgets. I have been asked to provide a check box for each widget with the label "Show in mobile view" that is pre-checked.
Widgets have always been visible in mobile view and I think it would make more sense to reverse this so the text reads "Hide in mobile view" and the check box is not checked.
The reason I ask is although I think I am right, I cannot communicate the reason being as its nothing more than intuition on my part. I am a developer and have no formal training in design/user experience so was hoping to get some opinions from people here, and perhaps some phrase that can describe what I have done so I can convince others.
