      Description

      Currently when you create a new forum discussion the files area doesnt clearly indicate where to drop files you want to attach. "drop files here to upload" should be visible by default. And centred to. Having it disappear once the user has uploaded a single file makes sense but having it hidden until the user drags a file into the page makes little sense. We're telling them drag and drop is available but not telling them where until they've dragged in a file.

      On a related note, the string "drag and drop available" above the file area should be removed. Telling the user that drag and drop is available somewhere on the page is unnecessarily mysterious. It would be better if the file area told the user that they could drag files there and if the area immediately above it, instead of saying "Maximum size for new files: 2MB - drag and drop available", said "Maximum size for new files: 2MB Maximum attachments: 2"
