I ran into an issue. It’s replicable. When I try to bookmark a post, it also tries to mute the person who posted the thing I was trying to bookmark.
Chrome, Version 60.0.3112.113 (Official Build) (64-bit), on Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29). (Running in Incognito with no plugins enabled for Incognito mode so it should be just about pristine in terms of browser environment.)
It’s not a deal breaker for me but it’s a bit irritating.
ETA: Apologies if this isn’t the best thread to report issues in. I saw the other thread but it seemed to be more philosophical discussion about muting than a good place for a bug report.
Samsung Galaxy S4 phone, with Android Lollipop 5.0.1 and stock browser… I haven’t seen the microphone/mute icon in a couple of days, at least. Of course, I’ve got a recurring caching issue that doesn’t keep track of Read posts/topics properly, so you might take any issues I report with a grain or two of salt.
Fixed. Added check for mobile devices. Mobile device now runs on a timer, executing every three seconds or so. I know there’s a jQuery .on() method I could use instead, but for now, it gets the job done.
On Earthtones, I’m currently testing moving the mute to the header, beside the date information. It doesn’t have any funky interactions there, but it is easy to overlook. (And maybe, that’s the way it should be - present and usable if needed but not in the way of conversation).
Couldn’t find a way to add it to the show-more button; there’s so much jquery abuse going on that I wasn’t able to find where in the Discourse code the show-more contents are generated.
Rolled out a new solution, that fires on the addition of new posts (or loading thereof).
I can report no bug. Pure feature. A great intermeidate step between muting a whole thread and muting a user in the preferences. Sometimes folks you like just fine have a thread where you don’t appreciate their contributions, and this button turns out to be a solid software backup to a wetware solution. Surely a nicer solution than telling someone they are unwelcome in a whole thread (a really controlling thing to say in a shared space), when one can just make that someone else unwelcome in ones own browser window (a really appropriate way to shut someone else up is to stop listening), for a whole thread. Genius!
