I like it! I'm on Dial-Up and hate waiting for the entire page to load when someone posts after themselves. And I will forget stuff that pops into mind as soon as I hit the button to finalise my post. Now if you could only add an automatic spelling fixer...

I think it's pretty good.

But hopefully we can get some sort of timer on it, like I just posted something about the Dodgers, then heard a breaking report and came back 15 minutes later to announce that the Seligs are selling the Brewers.

2 totally different remarks seperated by a good length of time, and should get their own seperate message for people to respond to.

That's awesome - I guess you found one of those temperature thingy's.

I suppose a 60F difference is pretty significant!

Your sig line probably slows things up as much as any double post would

Problem is it'll still be 60 degrees higher in August.

I like making successive posts - what's wrong with that

another question is what happens if youre tryin to quote someone.
sometimes ill post 3 or 4 in a row in a thread with all posts responses to quotes from others. will those still be separate?
thanks,

jake



no response to you gus, just trying to answer my own question.

see how disjointed this is getting.

i dont know taco.

no offense but i dont like it at all.

its nice to be able to quote DIFFERENT people and have different posts to differentiate.
i think this will actaully cause confusion.

jake

Maybe someone already brought this up but there used to be a feature you could check a box in each post to quote multiple posts in a single reply. It doesn't seem to be there anymore though and if Taco re-implemented this it would help that little problem of yours Jake.

Personally. I cant keep a train of thought long enough to quote several people at once.

I do like the idea of the merging though. this keeps Chef Boy in Texas from knokcing off 8 posts in a row of complete garbage and having half a screen of "This person is on your ignore list" . When there is only one post by an ignored user I rarely even notice it is there.

Your browser should just show an image placeholder (if anything at all) while it loads the rest of the page first. This at least allows you to scroll down and read everyone's remarks before the page loads. The board only loads one separate post at a time while images finish up later, so multiple consecutive posts actually slow things down much more than my sig line ever would.

Good points Alec

...now let's see how this new feature works

I will say this though....This might further encourage page spamming by someone who's interested in just inflating their post counts and/or just want to ramble a bit. Where they might have just been content to sticking to a single thread for the the wee hours now I'm afraid they'll just churn over more pages of threads and creating new ones like rabbits.

The 'subscription' feature has really kept my interest here again. In years past i'd come in here and you'd lose a thread from the day before from rabbit postings.

I still don't like this feature much - there are times when a totally unrelated thought needs it's own post and there are times when a related comment needs to show as an after though and the second post does that.

I bet Mock hates this as well (shoulda been a second post)

I'm looking into the modification ideas I've heard to see their feasibility...

This still isn't a permanent feature, but to be honest, so far I like it...

Me too TJ. Seriously cuts down on the repetitiveness of some of the poster's one line posts.

Who's crying, he asked for opinions they are being given.
