Linked replies showing up again so you have to read them twice - can this be addressed?


I have a question about reading a thread when you expand the replies under another reply… you will still see that reply again below. I did read the thread about this, but the discussion was very technical for a new person to discourse, and it seems to have fizzled out anyway. So I’ll start it again.

I’ll also attach a screenshot. The arrows show the duplication. This is annoying and time consuming to re read replies. Maybe there could be a user set option to either present the thread in date order, or threaded, but not try to do both. People could set it to their preference.

oh well, I’m not allowed to upload images since I’m a new user… another nice “feature” I guess :smile:

here it is:

A noob question: how can I create a linked reply?

I still think that changing those buttons to filter the stream would be healthier long term

This is a duplicate of an existing topic.

This topic is now closed. Please direct your replies to the existing topic.

I thought we closed that discussion

Nope this topic is still open (the one referenced in the very first post at the top of the page) and has the pending solution. It is just very low priority as it does not come up much. Complaint-driven development.
