Bland version.

I don't know if "Take Action" is too un-serious? Or how much flavor I can get into "Submit"?

(Maybe leaving "Add Comment" as the header is fine? But if we're changing the button it seems like we should change the header, too, since it suffers from the same technical accuracy issue.)

you're just making a case for clowncopterize

Are these over-ridable by the app (Weigh In), etc?

Yeah, these are the generic defaults.

We'll still get "Weigh In" / "Leap Into Action" / "Eat Paste" stuff in the headers for non-serious installs, and EditEngines can override getCommentViewButtonText() to provide a non-serious action (but none of the current ones actually do -- I could add that).

Yeah we need some flavor. If for no reason other than for people to complain on Twitter.

Yeah, agreed. This isn't reducing silliness, just making the serious options MORE SUPER SERIOUS.

  • Make specifying default (non-serious) text easier.
  • Specify default text for Paste and Maniphest.
  • Put some silly text on a button that's sure to ruffle a few feathers.
