Don't press the back button - share your approach!

I recently started looking at the "Who's online" page to see who might already be replying to the thread.

Question to the administrators: Is it possible to show a "someone's working on this thread" message if you open an edit screen?

Is that to be different from the message "Replying to ...", like:
Replying to Thread

Best wishes ... cheers, drl

Hi RudiC & drl,
You might see something like "Replying to Thread ..." if you are looking at the "Current activity" section close to the top of a member's home page, but we don't see anything like that when composing a response to a post in a thread nor when looking at the "Home" page nor "New Topics" page. (Or is there some other spot that contains this information that I haven't noticed yet?)

Before posting a response, I usually hit the "Go Advanced" button and I hit "Preview Post" before submitting a response and then I check to see if any new replies have appeared in the "Topic Review" section just before I hit the "Submit Reply" button. Even doing that, it sometimes happens that I submit a reply seconds before or after someone else (most frequently Chubler_XL, bakunin, RavinderSingh13, RudiC, Scrutinizer, or jim mcnamara).

But, since I often start responding to a post and get distracted by a phone call, a meeting, or a meal; I don't want the fact that I have started drafting a response to a post to keep anyone else from trying to help that thread's submitter before I get back to that issue.

I was thinking of just a tiny informative/warning message line with the same contents you can see in the "Who's online" screen (so the info is available, as drl pointed out):
Replying to Thread
 Congrats to RudiC - 3000 Thanks!
It's just to make it a bit more comfortable - everybody can have this info, but in another screen. And, it doesn't mean a new post is going to come in the next few minutes or at all; the replyer can quit any time without posting anything.

Thanks for your valuable idea using the "Topic Review" list for recent updates - I've seen that before but never thought of using it this way other than by coincidence.

It goes to show that some statistics are useful, meaningful and important. Well done on the 3,000 (and counting) Smiliethanks.

It makes my paltry 500~ish somewhat embarrassing. Smilie

Kind regards,
