One thing that I’ve never understood about Discourse is that it both nests replies and also shows them linearly at the top level, at the same time. So you can easily end up seeing two copies of a single message (see screenshot). Does anyone think that this is a Good Thing? It makes no sense to me, and makes it difficult to follow the message hierarchy.
Yes, we’ve been talking about that in Test help code doesn’t compile. I will be monkeying around with the settings to see if we can alleviate how awkward this is. But I don’t think it’s a deal-breaker.
@inder: Thanks for finding that, but I think we’re going to change elm-discuss to read-only and start fresh here. We’d have to categorize every single post ever over there. It’ll be available as long as Google still hosts groups so that discussions don’t get lost.
We’re going to proceed with this migration by making Elm Discuss on Google Groups read-only on January 1, 2018. Most discussion has already migrated over to Discourse. We will be repointing links as we find them, please help out by moving any you control and letting me know about any we miss.
