So I noticed there is the link to share a post/reply as a linked topic, and in messages its possible to share a message as a message and maybe change the recipients. I was wondering if it would be useful to do other combinations like:
share a post as a reply in another thread (instead of starting a new thread) (I guess you would just link it into the body of your reply though?)
share a post as a private message
share a private message as a thread (probably not, it is not necessarily fair to allow one party to invalidate the secrecy of both parties, ethical issue)
Ah thanks for that I understand now! I’m in the dark theme at the moment, and I didn’t notice the icon was a button. Also, I generated the feedback when I was in the share button just looking around. Probably a user who wanted to reply in a message would hit reply instead of share.
What if you wanted to forward the post to someone as a message? Would people do that rather than invite someone to the topic?
Maybe keeping the distinction between off-site and on-site interactions is useful?
