I freakin' love the "reply" feature! Every detail of it. The live preview is amazing! The placement of the reply and indention make a lot of sense, in my opinion. More specifically:
- I'm used to the German Wikipedia convention of
:::::indention, which is what the tool did in my test edits on beta.
- I can see two possible placements for a reply: Directly under the post I replied to, or at the end of the thread, which is what the feature does right now. I feel the later indeed does make more sense, even if it's different from the convention on German Wikipedia talk pages.
Unfortunately, I experienced a major issue: I tried to mess with the page in another tab, intentionally creating an edit conflict. When I replied in the original tab, my previous edit got reverted without any notice! That should definitely not happen. A reply should never touch anything else on the page, but only insert the reply. If this is not possible, an edit conflict should be triggered.
