Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

Unrelated to syntax, I have to say I hate the changes that mean a marked post is the first one displayed on the page. I liked being able to mark or unmark a post without changing what I'd "read" and what I hadn't "read." Same with blocking, etc.

Did we consider "Buffistas Building a Better Board += 1"? Actually, "Buffistas Building a Better Board << 1" would have been the nerdiest.

Edited because it's hard to type <.

I would agree, except I hated much more what happened the old way. All my scrolling was undone, and I'd have to scroll back through what I'd already read, to find out where I was. If it could be leave me at the same point on the page, like a refresh does, I would like the old way better.

That's between you and your browser, mostly. I mean, we could put something in that puts the post you just marked at the top of your window (not page), but if you had marked it while it was at the bottom of your window, you're still shifted around.

Sorry, that is what I meant. But that isn't how it used to work, at least not for me. Before it was the way it is now, it would bring me back to the top of the page I had loaded, even if the post I marked wasn't anywhere near there. So if I was in natter, and loaded the page starting with post #51 to post #100, and then I read down to and marked post 72, it would bounce me back up to post 51. I hated that. Just sayin'.

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

t Stands in the old way hatin' corner with Cindy.

Also, still hatin' Verdana.

Also this? How many posts are you getting in your window at one time, because with all the headers and everything, I'm getting two, tops.

Never said it was. I said it was a potential change. Your browser bumped you to the top of the page. Mine didn't. So I was always looking at the post I marked, plus I didn't have to go read more posts to keep up with the system's "marked read."

In this thread right now, with an un-maximised browser window, four.
