lud,

I don't mean that teafor2 adds to his OP via editing, but rather as replies to his own OP in that one thread. Thus every time he adds a new reply the thread floats back up to the top.

Re the number 50, I never brought it up, you did (quoting AGH). Some people set their preferences to 10 or 25 instead of 50 to avoid scrolling overly much. Set to 10, one board I view has its first page totally taken up by teafor2 posts. The point is that he posts in batches a lot which makes large blocks of his posts taking up screen space.

So with new replies in one thread, which floats the thread to the top each time he posts, do you have an objection, or think he would have a reasonable objection, to just putting all those posts in one thread moving forward (and forgetting merging previous posts)?

Also to me, X number of posts in a Smith surname board with links to Smith grave data on the teafor2 site is the same topic. Any reason each link needs its own separate thread?
