Merging posts?
Lurena
When I tried to post a first reply to a thread I started myself, just to separate a personal message from the neutral announcement, the message got merged into the neutral one. ( Kerr Avon thread)
That never happened in the old forum.
Did I miss something?
Will this happen all the time when one tries to post two (or more) successive separate replies ?

This is something we are currently looking into. There's no easy setting to change this and we think it is tied into the coding that enables users to edit their posts and moderators to merge posts. I'm aware that there are reasons why the "auto-merge" might sometimes be a bit of a pain, and am investigating. :)

Many thanks for looking into it for us WM
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Thank you for your quick reply Website Mutoid.

I can understand the pile of work that you still have to do. Please take your time, you (and the Horizon team) are doing a great job!
If it happens to be tied into the code, then no problem. We will get used to it then.

Just want you to know that I am a happy fan here!

Apologies Lurena, but I do think its a problem which is why I'm especially appreciative of WM making it a priority. Unlike other sites that have constant activity all day from dozens of members, Horizon relies on a minority of regular posters to keep the pages turning over and bump threads every so often to return them to people's attention. Something like the Doctor Who thread, where one person might post long reviews of a number of stories before there's a reply, will be very hard to refer back through if the software merges everything together. If it can't be fixed, it can't be fixed. But I wouldn't say that its not important.

SD, I didn't say it is not important, did I?
It bothered me when I started a thread.
I was just thinking mild and expressing my tendency to be flexible and give someone the time to figure things out.
Perhaps my writing wasn't clear, or my culture is a bit different.

Apologies again if there was any miscommunication Lurena. I have cut down the quotes above for clarity, as it was your comment that it was 'no problem' that I don't concur with. It would be a problem, and it is important to try and fix it imo. Thanks again to WM for her tireless efforts on our behalf. Agreed however that we can be flexible and work around it if we need to, but it will be better if we don't have to.

Best wishes,
SD

The auto-merge of successive posts by the same poster is now disabled in all forums. We are happy to review this on a forum-by-forum basis if necessary. The ability to go back and manually edit one's posts to add/subtract/change content is unaffected. Mods are also still able to edit users' posts if necessary.

Brilliant, thanks WM Grin
