locked Re: Message threads versus topics


 

Chris,

It may be worth checking out how Discourse handles replies.
Interesting. I was thinking of something like that too.

Another visual way to accomplish that is to have the "In-Reply-To" link collapse the intervening messages to a horizontal rule that allows one to re-expand them. Likewise the "Replies" button, leaving only the direct replies expanded below the message.

Not sure what to do if one happens to have the date sort reversed. But maybe exactly the same thing, just that the In-Reply-To would be below and the direct replies above.
