It happens a lot that when splitting topics, you more-or-less need to select all posts downstream of a certain post to get a proper split.
This is a pain in the ass in the current admin interface:
- you have to manually walk down all the posts and click them, though “select+replies” helps a bit.
- the selection UI is crazy slow for reasons I don’t fully understand. Like absurdly slow, 1 second wait after each click.
So I suggest we add an “above” and “below” button after “select” to make it easier to select all the posts above or below a certain point in the topic stream:
Warning: @eviltrout said this feature might be hard since the posts you’re selecting may not be loaded in the stream.
