[BP 1.2] Replying and commenting: A minor matter of terminology
I’d like to hear what people think about using “Reply” as the default terminology for the buttons in the Activity stream on BP1.2+.
It strikes me that people, when hitting ‘Reply’ to a Forum post that appears in the Activity stream, are going to assume that they’re actually replying inline in the forum thread in question, but this is, of course, not the case. It’s just adding a comment to an activity ‘item’.
I wonder if it might make more sense to have the buttons in the Activity stream read “Comment” instead, reserving “Reply” for forums and private messages and stuff.
Another solution would be to keep the “Reply” terminology, but to have the button link to the post box in the forum thread in question, rather than opening up an AJAXy inline div for comment input.
What do people think?
(BTW if there’s an easier-to-figure-out way to customize this than using ‘translation’ .mo/.po files and stuff, I’d love to know!)
