Entry points for moving and hiding discussions

Related to Hide - updated version spec. I would like to not expose people to the buttons such as "hide" or "delete" before they click "edit". I would personally also not expose "move", since -- unlike articles -- the topic title has an "edit" button.

So there would be two things people can do, "edit" or "reply". That would make sense to me personally for the sake of simplicity.

I agree. Guarding all transformation actions behind the "edit" mode makes the whole interaction compatible with the expected behavior for articles (either with the visual or classic editors), and provides a simple entry point with just two possibilities, with all the extended options revealed through progressive disclosure.

  1. I still see "hide" and "lock" and "summarize" in the current revision. They should both be inside of "edit".
  2. Menus are old fashion.
  3. In my view it is much better to have "edit", "permalink", and "history" as separate icons with clear colorful (ok if small) icons, and show the other pretty buttons when people choose to edit.

Any progress, please? Thanks.

(Delay is due to allhands meeting last week, and developer summit this week. More/real reply, later in the week.)
