This is a screenshot of part of the Discourse settings. This determines what shows up below a post by default and what’s behind the “…”.
The second setting is colored yellow because it’s changed from the default. (@ankursinha, you added “share” to that a couple of years ago — do you remember why?)
The current setup is pretty minimal without expanding. (We’re only not hiding “like” and “reply”.) That’s definitely got its virtues. (The result is just: for reactions, the ☐ Solution box, and a pencil for edit for your own posts.)
On the other hand, enabling other things like “share”, “bookmark”, “flag” might encourage more engagement with those features. (I personally find bookmark incredibly useful, because it can set a reminder to look at something in the future.)
- like (currently the only one)
(Note that things like “admin” or “edit” only show to the people who can do those things, so having “admin” there might be handy for faster administrative access. Also, I didn’t put “reply” on the list because I’m taking that for granted.)
Like all of these polls, this is just a straw-poll to get an idea of what people think is most useful!
