Woooow Thirty Boxes in one page----this seems good but a little distracting too for those who have larger boxes in their discussions. Its really tiresome to locate someone's box if our discussion had five pages---ten boxes in each page as back an forth interaction results in piling of comments makes it lengthier and more readable.But now you got to just scroll down to find them in first page But 30 in one page makes things difficult It would take more time for the page to load when we refresh to keep track of some comments. What do you think about this new change---Do you think this helps us in anyway apart from a reduction in number of pages our discussions gonna have? First of all Did you witness this change?

I was a bit confused as to what you meant at first, but I have not witnessed this change. I am going to an older discussion of mine with 30 responses to see if maybe it has changed there... but if not I look forward to seeing this change, 30 may be a little too high but then again it might be easier to facilitate the CTRL F feature which is the find feature. In this feature you can simply type in the username of whom your looking for, so for instance... If you were looking for your response on another person's discussion you can type that in... and voila. Of course if you've made many comments on said page, you'll have to keep hitting next until you find the one you want... but even so! Here I blab, sorry!

Ctrl+F would help you to find the boxes atleast in this long page---then how about to keep track of those comments at different boxes----if four to five people are online at the some time and good mood too---it would more of a mess to attend their respective boxes---and refreshing each time---i hate to do it coz it takes atleast a minute or so for the entire page to be loaded

You do have a point. Even with a fast connection it'd be refreshing and refreshing such a long page. I don't think Mylot took that into consideration, or maybe they did.... I'd suggest a collapse system... Let me explain, what I mean is a way to collapse the comments down so after commenting on one set of comments, you collapse said set and then go on to the next... The problem would be that after a refresh the collapsed state would reset as well and there we are back with so many comments...

may be they must have implemented this on a experimental basis---whatever it might be this makes things worser i guess---20 in each page is good to have ---i still prefer 10 though it was convinient

wow sunnycool now I understand what was going on, I was commenting and commenting and commenting, came back after dinner and on this page I thought I had finished was a whole row of responses yet to be commented on and here I thought oh my must have goofed and mylot admins deleted them but no they made this change just while I was at dinner he he. I thought I was losing my marbles. I mean like I was working and working and there were more and more, and now I understand what happened.I have to laugh now. but whew I did finally get all thirty responses commented on. liked the old way better really.

I'm not sure I'm settled on it either. Maybe 20 would be better? After all, so many commenting back and forth goes on, so 30 responses could turn out and make the page look more like their are 50 per page... Ps. I've been meaning to compliment you on your fractals! I believe that's what the images like your leaves are called.

For a moment i was shocked to come accross one page in my friends discussion which contained 22 responses in one page later i came accross the same in my discussions. I do feel that previous format was good they can atleast reduce the boxes to 20 as Somecowgirl said---it does makes things easier compared to 30

Hahaha it's a long way back to te top of the page after reading all the responses and having to find the 'respond to this discussion' button But it is fun reading all the responses without having to change pages. Many Lotters like to be on the first page and don't respond when it's funn so maybe this will mena they will respond on more discussions? You have a new fan Sunny? I see up there that you were already suggesting that she went to bed. You don't waste time do you?

It becomes much difficult when it gets 30 responses you gotto use your flood lights then ---it would freak me out for sure coz i really hate to read on huge boxes so this might limit me from barging into your boxes Coming to New Fan--- i think bed word drove her away ---still there is a long way to go until i promote her to my fan club lol---

I did not witness this change as I do not get so many responses but what is the problem if there are 10 or 30 on one page. Yes, if there are counter comments which themselves run into pages then there is a problem but this situation is not that frequent.

Bro, I think this change might be good for those with a slower internet connection, but for those with a super fast one, will find this a bit of a waste of time.. I still have to see how things go first before deciding it's good or bad. It might help for those I've mentioned..
@sunnycool (12737)

you really mean that----the present change make things worser for those who have slow internet speeds---infact its a complete converse of what you have mentioned in your response

Hi Sunny, I noticed it, and said to myself wow! That is great. Most of the friends I respond to come within those numbers. Likewise, I dont get many people who go to third, leave alone fourth page in my discussion. (Thankfully, I dont come up with interesting discussions like you, Lamb, or Diana :)). So it is good for me, and many others who get only limited number of people visiting their discussions. :)

hi there sunny cool, just found out about it when you post this discussion, I see there is no next page anymore and will stock up to 30 boxes in a page, hmmm anyhow I am comfortable. I did not notice the change because I am reading the responses and I am still on the 9th box This is much better one 30 box in a page...The challenge could be that you will find hard time to check the response again, because before we used to check what page and can easily scroll down and find the response.. have a great day and happy mylotting.. see you around mylot

hi dorothy,this one create less hassles if our discussion has less responses else it would be more a investigating task as who made the comment and which box was chosen among the 30 boxes---and loading of pages can slow down coz of having 30 boxes in a single page.great day.

hi there sunnycool, oh now I felt what you are trying to explain, As I was looking to my post I had a hard time looking where is your response, anyhow with the help of admins here mylot will improve more and better,, Just a suggestion can they make a feature wherein we can hide boxes or some responses, just like in emails..

hi there sunny cool, looking at your response I experience what you are trying to say, agree for those who have few response it will be an advantage, but for those who has a lot of response like you discussin now will not an advantage, It takes time looking for your reponse really.. Just an advice, mylot might want to have a feature to hide responses like what in emails do. have a great day to you..

I too noticed the change... My schedule was just to hectic I was not able to rush my response... And I like this... why? Because it would usually load once if your responses were 1-30, then twice if 30-above... easy to locate even I have to scroll a long way down/way up... LOL

yeah and i was wondering why was the 31st response in the second page! and i went back to the first page to see it was quite long, it could make things a little inconvenient for me or for some of us too i don't know but i was better off the more number of pages coz it was easier to interact, it was like more space for responses but now i have to concentrate a little more and it makes it look a little crowded too. Alice?
@voldrox (7205)

yeah but one good thing i could see, no need to browse to a different page to see some of the responses, this page may take longer time to load but yeah we could attend to more responses hmm anyways altogether it could be good, i guess..

hi voldrox,i think it would be more of a inconvinience to have all thirty in one page it might look as if comments are piling up on each other---may be more of a never ending story lol rather i prefer having those nicely spaced boxes which are short and easy to move on and to locate some ones box.great day.

Yes, was a bit surprise to see my responses go beyond the normal 10 for the first page. But I like the new changes as it saves time hopping from one page to the other and it won't pile up to many pages of responses in our discussion box. We got to see more of other responses in one page.

I think they put it back the way they was because of the problems people were having with seeing their responses. Maybe we'll see it again when the bug is fixed.

Hi Sunny, I checked it before responding on here and to my surprise YES...30 in a box even if it has lots of exchanges in responses and lengthy discssions it's 30. i am amazed. no need for me to check on the next page if the discussions has lots of responses...yes. i love it!

yes i witnessed this new feature here. but i am surprised that it went back to its original style of 10 boxes per page. so you need to browse responses by tens again.

Hello, Sunny. No I didn't notice the change, but it solves a mystery for me. I noticed on Saturday that I couldn't link through to the discussions from my inbox - I had to find them through the 'friends started' tab, which was a bit time consuming, as very often several people drop by my box. It should make things easier, I would think, and may encourage more responses if people haven't got to wade through several pages. More people should read the responses as well.

It might make things easier for the responders but it would be a tough job to locate people who keep on barging and jumping from one box to another Imagine their facial expressions----when they open a discussion to find thirty boxes in a single page ---they would be lost in the mess ---i think they would just make a response and make their way out.

before i could see this discussion of yours, though i have already have this in my email notification, i have noticed this new change in the pages. i usually response from email, response and comments, so before i reached the email that tells me about this discussion of yours, i already posted my own discussion about this. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/2264790.aspx and GoAskAlice lead me to this topic, so i am here.

I wasn't aware of any changes at all and that's because I wasn't around when it happened I don't know if it's a good thing though, me adding into the confusion would definitely make it more confusing I'm glad taht things are normal again so I didn't have to be a total stranger the day I got back
