Does anyone actually know what it means when someone’s profile photo appears with “replying” next to it for a long time? At first I thought it meant someone was replying to something I said, so I would wait a while, but then no reply would ever show up. Sometimes I would then see that the person just made a comment on another thread to someone else, so obviously they weren’t replying to me. So does it just mean that the person is reading the particular topic, replying to something I wrote but it could be on any thread, or it isn’t personal at all and just means that the person is on the forum somewhere doing something?
if they open topics in different windows/tabs, and had chosen reply in one of the windows but didn’t finish replying, then it would appear that they are still typing a reply when in fact they have moved on to reading other topics in other tabs. I occsionally find tabs open with the reply box started, but I had decided not to write the reply. If I close the tab, then open that topic at some later stage, the reply box is still active! I imagine what you are noticing is one or other, or possibly a combination, of these two situations
Thank you for explaining.
