Sticking on some CCs.

Seems like there's some more that might(?) need tooltips. How about these?

needs moar 'this thread' clearly

Is anybody going to respond?

As I recall, the actions are all using icons in the LiquidThreads user interface.

If that's the case, yes, all of them should have localizable tooltips. As far as I'm concerned, this is a law of the Web. :-)

Hmmm, no, LiquidThreads is no longer using icons (at least not on MediaWiki.org).

So the tooltips aren't strictly necessary. These links feel comparable with action tabs for a page, which all have tooltips. But... unlike action tabs (which appear once on a page), these links show up a lot on a single page. So the extra HTML weight may not be worth it here to add a tooltip that reads (for example) "Delete this thread" for the "Delete" link. It's already pretty straightforward. Hmmm.

(oops, messed with keywords on the wrong bug.)

Krenair: You assigned this issue to yourself 12 months ago.
Do you still work (or plan to work) on this? Only in case you do not plan to work on this issue anymore, should the assignee be set back to default and the bug status changed from ASSIGNED to NEW/UNCONFIRMED? Thanks.

Andre: Please read the above comments.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
