The current issue is that we want to avoid line overflow for longer languages. Do you think that icons + tooltips are readable? Or should we change to text-only?
@alxd As those icons are used throughout the UI, it should be fine. 👍
Currently they are used in two meanings – as buttons to do something – favourite, boost, follow... – and, in the case of favs and boosts as indicators how many favs or boost a toot has and as links to a detail view who liked or boosted.
This feature will add a third meaning to the icons = more cognitive load for the users.
Bur thanks to the position directly below the notification header it should be clear in this case (if properly labelled for screen readers).
If you have any other ideas, please let us know! I think using the text would be the best option - if not for longer languages. In those cases something shorter would be needed.
So it's either icons or cutting out one of the categories (which I wouldn't like myself).
