Live thread question/suggestion

  1. Is there a way to get the new posts in the live threads to appear at the top of the page rather than the bottom? I have to constantly scroll down to get to the newest post. If the quick reply was at the top and the newest post would appear below that as it updated that'd be perfect. I wouldn't have to scroll down constantly.. i.e. make it like a twitter feed
     
  2. You'd have to scroll down either way, no?
     
  3. no.. on facebook, twitter, etc.. the newest post appears at the top of the page rather than the bottom.. so you wouldn't have to constantly scroll down each time a new post is made.. you could see it and reply to it without ever having to scroll
     
  4. I want this too. It takes me a whole minute to actually press the "post reply" button because every time I try to, someone posted so it makes the post reply button go down and I press something by accident half the time. I love the feature but I'd rather go back to non-auto if I have to deal with that every week.

  5. That never happened for me at all. I can ask the developer if this is possible if you want.
     
  6. I mean, to be fair, it was like 80 degrees over here on Monday and my computer was really, really hot and I couldn't do anything about it despite the fact that I also have a laptop fan (which is crap).
     
  7. i wouldn't think this would be hard to implement? A lot of forum softwares give you the option to display the newest post first instead of last which is all that is needed here.. then you could the quick reply above the posts instead of below..
     
  8. It's kind of hard to check who quoted you as well. At least it was for me.
     
  9. I think this is a great suggestion. I found it annoying too to have to keep scrolling down to finish my post.

  10. Anything else on this? I think it would make the live threads much easier to participate in..
     
  11. Not yet. I'm concentrating on bettering our status system first. Whilst it may be annoying to scroll down a bit, it's definitely an improvement on constant refreshes and having to constantly change pages, so it's not super-high on my agenda at the moment, but I will definitely contact the developer at some point to ask him about having posts at the top.

  12. I appreciate the consideration Crayo.. I know that I for one would certainly be more inclined to participate in live threads if this can be accomplished.

  16. God damnit.

    Is scrolling down such a big deal? I mean I'm one of the most active in the discussion thread(s), and I genuinely have no issues at all. Sure if I actually watch a segment throughout (rare with WWE), I have to do a scrolling frenzy to get back to the bottom, but then it's fine again. All this "it takes me like a minute to reply" stuff has to be exaggerated, lol.
     
  17. The scrolling is a bit annoying yes, but the part that makes it difficult is trying to read all the replies, watch the live action, and respond all at the same time. If I didn't read all the replies or actually watch the show I probably wouldn't be bothered.

    I just know that when I watch a show my priority is to watch the show first, read posts second, reply third.. so if I have to scroll to the bottom to reply.. 10 new posts appear in the time in which I'm posting.. I have to read them.. then scroll down to finish my reply.. and repeat.. by the time I go to reply my post is no longer relevant half the time.. but if I didn't have to scroll down i could make my reply while reading and watching without a problem.
     
  18. I don't think anyone who ever participates in discussion threads reads every post. I know I don't. You're inevitably going to miss some because of how fast it is. If posts were to appear at the top, you would still have to scroll to read the previous replies lol. The only thing that would change is the reply box wouldn't move, so you could reply faster than you could before.
