The reply button is on right side. Should it not be the first button on the left side?

It feels unnatural that it is not the first button. I also just noticed today that there is a reply icon in the time-line. Did not know. Maybe a more obvious way to know this? Because I would use this instead of scrolling all the way down to the reply button.

Edit: I might look strange because it is left oriented and the reply button is somewhere in the middle.

Edit: I made a printscreen with the reply button on the left:

Thanks for the heads up. I hadn’t spotted that. I’ll start using it now.

If anyone wants a CSS tweak to make it more noticeable:

.timeline-footer-controls .fa-reply::after {
	content: " Reply";

Personally I find it easier to hit as it is, since my mouse cursor tends to spend most of the forum browsing time on the right side of the screen anyways. This is the side scroll bars typically reside too, after all.

It being on the right is more consistent with the ‘in post’ reply buttons. I prefer to keep it as is.
