I don't know what it is about Mastodon, but I every day I use it, I make some kind of mistake with the UI that sends out toots to people I didn't mean to, or gets dropped from a thread, or mentions people I didn't want to, or something like that.
I don't even know what's wrong with it. I can't criticize it because I don't know what about it is causing me to make these mistakes.
@neauoire I don't think it's the keyboard shortcuts. They all seem fine. It's something about how it displays the state of where your message is going... I don't know what it is.
@cancel haha, well if you do, let me know, maybe I can highlight some part of the interface or something. ^^
@neauoire ok I figured it out just now
@cancel Oh! if you remove the mention it disconnects the thread! I.. never actually did that I guess.
@neauoire the weird part is that it still shows it like I'm replying, even though it's not gonna make it a reply.
@cancel yeah it should check for the mention and update the UI. I'll open an issue on the repo.
@neauoire I saw your issue and saw that it was closed. It makes sense internally that it's still considered a reply. But there's no indicator in the regular "Home" timeline that it's a reply... it looks just like a bare toot. So maybe *that's* the bug? I mean, I thought all of those mistaken toots were actually not replies, and I deleted them whenever they happened.
@cancel I did some test and I noticed that the toot wrapper had the reply class, I think we just need to use it on this instance to make it clear that it's a reply, I'll try something out today.
