Not public reshare
I would like to suggest to add the possibility to reshare something without posting it as public.
According to me the fact to add the possibility to choose the aspect used with the reshare can add a very big value to D*.
From my user experience : there is a lot of thing that I am not resharing because I don't want to set it public : it is a little bit annoying.

reshare reach control Closed Fri 31 Jul 2015
This thread sadly seems to be dead, but there is demand for an implementation of "reshare privacy" as you can see here as well as on github and in the d* community outside these forums.
Therefore I propose that the confirmation window asking whether one actually wants to reshare the selected post be modified to show a dropdown menu, just like the one you use to modify your original posts' reach. This menu would contain all your aspects, "public" being the default option.
I believe this would enhace d*'s user-friendliness without being an overly extensive change.

For this feature to be complete, I think one should also be able to add a message with it (see this thread: https://www.loomio.org/d/cX7rqFSw/adding-text-mention-on-top-of-a-reshared-post )

While it's not a bad idea, I feel like there's too much potential to change the permissions settings of a post's reshare. Can we assure that private posts would never be affected by this kind of functionality?
