[No thanks] Lose the avatar next to quick reply

Every time I'm viewing a thread, I get to the last post and see my avatar next to the quick reply. This always confuses me because it looks like I made a post in the thread which I know I have not.

Wouldn't it be better to remove the avatar next to the quick reply?

I like it the way it is. The idea is "the next post can be yours". Also it is differentiated from a real post because your user name and user title are not present.
That's exactly why it's there and i like it. You can always remove the code from the template system.

Here is an example of how it currently looks:

And here is how it would look like if we loose the avatar:

But the second option doesn't give you the best view of what your post would look like when it gets added to the thread.
Maybe a better solution would be to not show the avatar until you click inside the Quick Reply box.

This brings up a good point ...

it would be interesting if XF had a way of providing statistics on which feature/layouts perform better and base implementation on hard statistics. :)

View before you click inside the Quick Reply box.

View after you click inside the Quick Reply box.

I like this. It gives the feeling that your reply is "live" and that it's already part of the thread. It shows consistency (to an extent, there's no username/usertitle) and I'm really getting used to it being there.

(I even like that if you click it, it brings up your member card)

I wasn't a big fan at first but now I kinda like it.

Think the turning point was when they moved the page navigation above the editbox.
That was huge improvement imho.
