page breaks are not that big a deal
« on: 10 Sep 2009, 07:31 »

Edit:  Woo... page break.  This is awkward.

Hey everyone, can we call a moratorium on commenting on the awkwardness of your page break?  I am not singling you out wet helmet, really, everyone does this.

When the page breaks and you weren't expecting it, simply ignore it or if you really think the previous message's context is important than just edit your post to quote the last post.  You're gonna edit your message anyway, so edit it to something useful rather than mildly whiny!

\o

Seriously though, I've always been inwardly proud of my ability to actually change my habits through conscious will. Still can't change every habit fast enough for my fiancee though.  :-(

I've never really got the page break fetish this forum has. The joke is fun (and it's an in-joke, so hey!), but who doesn't expect something weird at the top of the page if they skip a few pages?

Oh man, I wasn't expecting a new post here. This is so awkward.

(Seriously, the new page thing is weird, do what Joe says.)

Obviously we need to continue until we hit the page break than make no mention of it at all

No way, I'm hoping to get the page break post, so I can discuss how weird it is to be making the page break post.

I agree for the most part.  Sometimes it really is just too amusing as it was originally done to go back and put it in context, and so some mention of the page break might be useful to remind people who are quite dense (me) that there was a context.  Most of the time, though, it's not that awkward or funny.  That said, I have avoided posting something because I didn't want it to be on the page break.

Yeah, counting is by far the least efficient way of figuring it out.  I just payed attention to when the page breaks happened, and the number of replies that thread had.

Holy crap, that wasn't up there when I posted, and it didn't give me a message saying you had posted.

edit: So how much of a time window is there so that it receives your message but hasn't processed it completely enough to tell me that you posted something? That has to be close.
