I've a Q&A (question and answer) website like SE. In my website, some of questions have a cost to see their answers, I mean they aren't free. Now I'm trying to make a different in the UI between free questions and non-free ones.
Currently they have the same UI except a blue-box under non-free questions which contains the cost of that question. Something like this:
Ok, what's the problem? That bule-box (which is the only different between them) will be hidden after marking an answer as the accepted one. I mean that blue-box goes under that answer. So the user cannot understand such a question is free or not at a glance. He needs to scroll and looks for whether is there that blue-box?
Anyway I need to make a constant different between free and non-free questions. Any suggestion?
Note: I can simply change the color of its title (and give it a tiny
text-shadow) when the question isn't free like this:
But I'm doubt it is a good idea.
