For longer threads

January 20th, 2013 at 6:50 pm by David Farrar

Note that there is a new feature which may be useful on threads with lots of comments.

At the bottom of each main post is text which says “You can skip to the end and leave a response”.

If you click on this it will take you to the bottom of the comments for that thread.

    Perhaps we could also have text that says “you can skip to the gym and get a life” for some of these really long threads!

    You do have to be kidding. Do you know the percentage of ACC claims from people who hurt themselves exercising, compared to those hurt whilst using a computer? (Note ACC does not pay for RSI).

    Sorry, but the facts prove there is more chance of hurting myself at the gym. I’m staying safe.

    (The writer accepts there are arguments regarding the health benefits of exercise, but for the purpose of her message, chooses to ignore it). ;-)

    a.k.a the “who gives a damn what anyone else thinks” function :-)

    Some might suggest that the slow load time is a ‘market force’ creating an incentive for the commenters to desist

    (and wait for the next exciting episode in the “Did he, or didn’t he, kill them/get compensation” saga. Same Bain time, same Bain channel.)

    A great feature for those without a life and obsessed with a murderer and his family.

    I made this suggestion to DPF on a recent thread. I’m really pleased to see this new feature, but not sure if it’s being implemented in response to my suggestion.

    For people like me, who occasionally reads Kiwiblog on my mobile, like I’m doing now, this is great.

    The one thing DPF can’t control is the obsession some people have with gay marriage/climate change :)

    I’d really like to see threads where you can reply to a specific comment like they have at The Standard. Makes it easier to keep track of a conversation and look for responses to a specific post as opposed to having to scroll the whole page.

    Just sayin’…

    Yeah, but if you skip reading a long list of comments before adding your own, chances are someone had already made your scintilating, break-through point.

    Incidentally, I don’t know why i’m bothering to post. My observation/experience is that once a subject herein has had an early blast of attention and comment, it then goes moribund and is read only by the sad creatures who comb the lists in the absence of any more profitable or worthwhile activity.

    Like i have just done!!

    (Ergo: Chances of anyone reading this are low to non-existent IMHO)

    Awesome! It will make it much easier to read long threads when using a phone.

    Mikenmild, there’s no CTRL-END on the iPhone, don’t know about other devices. Generally, to update a long thread I have had to go back up to the top of the thread to hit the refresh icon (easy, you just touch the top of the screen and it takes you straight there), and then scroll like mad to get back down to the bottom where new comments might have appeared.
