Page Wrap

I have noticed over the years that in threads where a discussion is occurring, quite often people will make a significant post, only to have it be the final post on a page, and have it, for the most part, overlooked. Would anyone else favor the idea of having a page wrap, where either the final one, or two posts of a page would wrap on to the next page as well? That way, people would not easily miss them. Just an idea I had, and I thought I would throw it out there to see what people thought of it. [Edited on 12.23.2012 1:09 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] The Yeti [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Bungie Sam If we used a Post Buoyancy system properly the significant posts would 'rise' to the first page.[/quote] All of my plsno. It would just end up being a buch of 'funny' irrelevant at the top, and all the relevant posts would be ignored at the bottom.[/quote]Which is why I included the word 'properly'. That system would never work.

  • I think I was deciding between writing "need the ability" and "need to have the ability" and then merged the two without looking.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] spawn031 The 24th post in a thread is the heel in a loaf of bread, no one wants it![/quote]Like I said, the final post would not be removed from the page, and a new page still would not be created until a new post is made following a full page of 25 new posts.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Aang the Avatar Then the third to last post on a page will be overlooked. [/quote]I think you misunderstood. The final post would not be removed from the page, it would merely show up on the next page as well. The reason that the final post gets overlooked is because quite often people will tab to the last page in a thread, and respond to the most recent posts visible on that page. As the final post only is seen on that final page until someone makes one more single post. It does not have much chance to be seen and responded to. The posts preceding the last have a longer time to be seen and responded to by more people. Therefore the "third to last post" would not be affected in any way by this change.
