  • Hi,

    If you don't get a reply from one of the admins here, you can try sending an email to fissues (at) microsoft [dot] com with a link to the thread and an explanation if what you're looking to do.

  • I think the web interface should split a long thread automatically, only show the first 30 or 50 replies, and provide a "Show more replies" button.

    I am looking forward to it. I may just try to close that thread before success at splitting, but that has some disadvantages. If the rectifying can't happen, that will be the best available option I think.

    Thanks. I feel better that it is not just me. Identifying and getting rid of that script seems like a solution.

  • That's a really long thread! It kept loading for me before it even got to the script error, and I gave up and closed it. I think you have the right idea for the workaround until the bug can be permanently fixed... start a new thread, link to it from the old thread, and lock the old thread.

  • Thanks Ed. I am still hoping  Jah OSullivan has some success with it.

    It would be nice if that thread accidentally serves as an instance that a developer could use to identify a fix that would help forum performance for all.

    Closing the thread is an option, (presuming that works). However there is enough really useful info on the thread that I wish I could split it.

  • We've got it earmarked for addressing in a few weeks Cal. I'll keep this thread updated when the issue is resolved. Not a scenario we want to keep in this state for too long. Thanks for bringing it to our attention

  • Thanks. I went ahead and locked the thread. I have hope that I could later unlock it, and split it up. I had to use a non-IE browser to do the locking.

  • That's pretty good feedback Cal. Thanks a lot for your help. I'll update this thread when the issue is resolved.
