Warn if adding repost button on friends-only entry

Warn if adding repost button on friends-only entry

Short, concise description of the idea
We should be warned if we're about to add a repost button to a friends-only entry.

Full description of the idea
I've been retroactively adding repost buttons to all of my public entries with captions relating to the post (for instance, "It's-a me, the repost button!" for a Mario-related entry) - sometimes even just for the sake of having an at-least-halfway-creative repost button for each one, because sometimes my posts are really generic and probably wouldn't actually be reposted. (Yeah, I'm weird like that.) Anyway, since I have a lot more public entries than friends-only entries, and since coming up with the captions is so fun, it's way too easy for me to forget to check for the lock icon and put a repost button on a friends-only entry by accident. I'd like to be warned when I do that.

An ordered list of benefits
  • - You can add repost buttons to entries without risking having friends-only content reposted publicly
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • - I have a habit of not explaining things very well
