How can we improve our V5 options?

Forum Thread - reword top "reply" button

When you're in forums, in an actual thread, at the top right corner of the first post are two buttons, one above the other, both saying "reply" with a drop down option, and both defaulting to "reply".

I believe the top of the two (which relates to the full thread and not the first post) should say "topic" and default to "watch" .. it seems redundant to have that top button to also default to "reply" (and also looks a bit weird).

    Actually .. what might be a better idea, is to move that button that is within the forum post box, to the bottom right of the box instead (under the signature area, perhaps). Since we've moved to V5 one of the things that I keep EXPECTING to be able to do, but cannot do, is click on "reply" at the bottom of a post (especially when we don't use the quick reply box). It's not so bad when the post is fairly short, but I do tend to waffle on a lot (and have a few guildees that do the same), and it just doesn't feel right to read a long post, and then have to scroll back to the top of it to hit "reply".

    The other option, of course, is that if you don't have the quick reply box there, you have a button to click for "reply" in it's place (ie, bottom left underneath the last post). You would then still have to have a button in each post though, in order to access the "quote" options, etc.
