Default Infinite Scroll, Related Threads & You

Folks,

I hate to break it to you, but we're launching Infinite Scroll today (in about 30 minutes). Personally as a Twitter masochist I'm a fan of infinite scroll, but I understand it's not for everybody.

It does make reading long threads kinda nice though, since you don't have to go to the next page.

Related threads y'all are familiar with on mobile and already hate, so I'm not even gonna bother saying anything about that.


Here are some screenshots with captions on them.




The header, obviously, disappears from view once you scroll down:



BUT FEAR NOT IT COMES BACK WHEN YOU NEED IT FOR NAVIGATION:



You can disable / enable these settings in your User CP in the Edit Options section.





Unfortunately y'all are gonna have to opted in before you can opt out, so get ready to smash that disable button in about half an hour.

(if you really hate infinite scroll)

There was a feature a few months ago when you went to a previously viewed thread you automatically get directed to the last post you viewed. Can that be brought back?

infinite scroll is horrible. I find ill scroll down and then all of a sudden im on some other thread completely and have NO idea what happened to the thread I was following.

Why cant we make this OPT IN and not some mandatory thing? This is how you kill a forum, forcing changes on users they never asked for.

I'm not sure what it was or how it happened because I didn't change any of my settings. One day I viewed a thread I frequent and it auto went to the last post I viewed. Towards the end of last year/beginning of this year it changed back.

This is ******* awful. And it adds bars at the top and bottom of the screen, reducing the size.

Top nav bar only shows up if you scroll up, so you don't have to keep scrolling to navigate out.
