I like it in theory, but I also think the replies button is kind of OK where it is now.
I agree that conceptually…
It shows you info at the right time of action (I’m about to reply! Someone hold me back!)
Hey before you reply did you know TWO people ALREADY replied to this? Maybe you should READ THOSE REPLIES before you reply?
It groups related things together
Hey, you’re gonna reply? Cool. Two replies already. This will make three.
Which I like, but on the other hand… well, see my first sentence.
I am far less bothered by the reply than the like situation at this point, since I am beginning to agree that having one extra line under every liked post does get monotonous over time, and the “like it too” isn’t necessarily needed.
Anyway we would not do any of this for 1.3.
