When one clicks on ‘replies’ to expand the responses to a post, they then appear duplicated further down the page.
And am I the only one who this annoys? Does anyone else find that this makes following the conversation frustrating and sometimes confusing? Is it a bug or a feature?
@jsick as the Discourse guy, and @mjuric as the self-professed chief nitpicker
I never expected clicking on Replies to magically remove them from further down in the page.
I guess I didn’t expect them to be removed, I just didn’t think they would exist there in the first place.
On Facebook (or just about any other threaded commenting environment I can think of), when you reply directly to something it spawns its own sub-thread, and doesn’t also appear as its own post on the parent thread. Am I losing my mind here?
Ah, thank you, I see that I am not alone here, and that Robert’s topic is in fact identical. Glad I’m not going crazy, and just seems I will have to live with it. Thanks!
@merlin, I’ve explained Discourse’s threading design in Understanding and Using Discourse’s Flat Threading I hope that will help you.
I read it and I am actually sold on the idea now! It’s a very informative post which I’d encourage everyone to read, and actually totally changed my mind on the matter.
It’ll take some getting used to, but I now agree that this is probably the way to go!
