The current bonfire version we are running here looks quite clean and polished. Kudos to the developers!

At present, our discussion page lacks any statistical data about the thread, a feature that is pretty common in most of social networks or forums. These platforms typically display a total count of replies, boosts, likes, and participants.

Take Discourse as an example, a platform with a great UX for productive conversations. Discourse displays the list of links shared in a post and provides a statistical box that details thread engagement. This includes also an approximation of the time required to read through the entire thread, if significant.

What are some meaningful statistics we must/should incorporate for the Bonfire 1.0 release? We are seeking to find statistics that can effectively foster engagement in discussions without solely promoting addictive behaviors. Any thoughts or suggestions ? #bonifre_feedback

No doubt Discourse's stats are awesome!
I would say it would be nice to have those avatars at the bottom of people who have engaged in the conversation - showing first the people you follow or you mostly engage with and an option to expand to get the whole list of people who interacted with the post. Maybe -this could be controversial- an AI-derived icon next to people's avatars in the list indicating if they agree or disagree with the original post.

I am using Firefox and after posting and trying to close the Compose prompt, there is a message indicating the content will be lost.
