Make thread reply notifications more visible #1230

We should think about a better way of presenting it, maybe have two tabs "conversations" and "threads" or just a hint that there are more notifications below.
Tabs could be a good solution. I noticed a clear pattern from all of the usability tests we've done so far: people are confused by all buttons and notifications on the header. I think we need to tackle all of these problems together, and maybe try a bigger redesign for the next release. I'll try to sketch something...
We can do some usability testing on dev before we launch anything very new to production.
