Re: Wire 1.2
Groups are different, they show the activity for a group. If I post a message in the group it’s activity for that group, so it shows on the group activity stream. That’s why there is a box to post.
If there was a post box on every user’s page, where does that post go? It can’t go on that user’s activity stream because that stream is the activity for that user. If I post, that’s my activity, not theirs. That would be totally confusing.
The activity stream is not the wire. It’s an activity stream, it shows activity for a specific object (user/group). If you want the free-for-all wire functionality then you’ll need to install the back compat plugin, or see if someone is interested in remaking it as a plugin for 1.2.
