 > Alternatively, let's introduce a new filter that does what [9160] does.

 tl;dr - This is what I would go with as well.


 I think the filter we are most concerned about is the one in bp-legacy
 since that relies on AJAX / JS being enabled and is the one that is going
 to be used most of the time.

 The filter in `bp_activity_action_post_update()` only fires / occurs if JS
 is disabled.  I think we can leave that filter alone since that is rarely
 going to be used.

 @MrMaz - Doing a `list()` check would be applicable if you wanted to
 support older versions of BuddyPress <= 2.1, or the bp-default theme
 which doesn't include] r9160), or if you were posting custom activity
 updates without JS.

 r9160 was introduced since v2.2 so if we move back to 3 arguments, this
 will just cause more issues for devs.

 I see the following options:
 1. Rename the filter in bp-legacy.  Problem with this is devs would need
 to add another filter just for bp-legacy.  Only advanced plugins like
 MrMaz's and imath's that are re-using the "What's New" activity form would
 need to use this filter.  To me, this is quite rare.
 2. Rename the filter in `bp_activity_action_post_update()` to something
 else.  Problem with this is bp-default still uses the same filter name
 with different arguments.
 3. Do not alter any code, but add in-depth phpDoc to the filter in bp-
 legacy.  This could just confuse devs even more.

 Option 1 is probably the easiest, but plugins would need to update their
 code to use the new bp-legacy filter.

 Would be particularly interested in MrMaz and imath's feedback here.
