Request: Autoload replies or set Replies Per Page pref

1,123 502 November 21, 2019 at 03:24 PM
It would be very helpful for threads to autoscroll into view the next page of replies once scrolling to the end of the current set of replies has been reached, instead of needing to click on the next page number.

Alternatively, it would be helpful to be able to set the number of replies per page to something like 200, just as the number of posts per page can be set.

As a result of the current behavior, some of the best/most popular deals are the most difficult and time consuming to read replies from because of how dislocated it is to read through entire conversations. As a result, people get confused about what has been discussed/answered already, questions get repeated or previous answers missed, and good or relevant information to the reader can be overlooked. So aside from the inconvenience for the one reading through all the pages of replies, the quality or continuity of the conversation tends to degrade as the conversation continues.

Hi. While it doesn't quite go that high, you can adjust the amount of replies per page on in your settings, which can be found here.
In redesign, it's the third item (Number of Posts to Show Per Page) and in classic it's sort of in the middle under Thread Display Options.

Do you mean where it can be set to 45 posts per page?
