Can't open long threads

Lately I have noticed that once a thread gets a lot of replies I can't open them anymore. What is that about?

  1. They take alot longer than usual to open. If you get impatient and keep clicking, it takes even longer.

    1. And when the long threads do eventually open, all the replies are collapsed and the new posts are hidden rather than open and easy to pick out. That's been a known problem when reply count gets too high.

        . . . and one they still haven't fixed!

      2. Thanks, this is definitely on the list to improve when we're able.

        Generally, threads with more 100 replies start to slow, and those with 300+ can be frustrating. The primary reason for this is that keeping track of which posts users have read is quite taxing as the post gets longer.
