Attempting to restore an answer deleted by a moderator gives no visible feedback
After a moderator has deleted an answer, it looks like this to the poster of the answer:
If the poster of the answer clicks on "Restore", the action is prevented, and a message is shown at the top of the page:
However, this message is not visible to the user as the page is scrolled to the deleted answer, and the message is displayed above the question. Unless the user scrolls all the way to the top of the page they will not see that they have a message, so it just looks like the "Restore" button does nothing with no feedback.
Can this be improved so that the user can easily see the message? Ideally by displaying the message as close to the "Restore" button as possible (no further away than the top of the answer, but even that will be off screen for long answers so this would require the distraction of automatically scrolling to the top of the answer).
Even better would be if the grey notice on the answer made clear that the user does not have access to restore, and the restore button was disabled.
