I apologize if I am poorly understanding you or if I have poorly explained the function of the 'fantasy feature'
. I mentioned earlier that there
are probably uses that a feature like this could have, but I haven't thought of. There are, most definitely, features currently available that are
100% useless to some members, but one of the main features available to other members.
Unfortunately, for me, I am unable to spend any extended duration of time on ATS in a single 'session'. The result is that many of the threads I would
be interested in become huge threads in the time between my visits.
Entering one of these threads many hours after it's publication can quickly reveal the most extraordinary posts based on member feedback and the star
system. Scrolling down the first 2-3 pages reveals the comments which have garnered the most stars and, potentially, the most member replies.
I simply think it would be quite an awesome feature to be able to see all the member replies to a single, specific post. In a fast moving and large
thread, replies can be scattered over dozens of pages. This scattering makes it more difficult to find all the replies and member opinions to the
There have been times I had found myself interested in one of the first few posts in a very large thread. I've replied to those posts and realized my
comment will be on page 27. There are a lot of things that happen from page 1 to page 27 and comments to one of the first few posts can seem
completely out of place 26 pages later.
I imagine a feature like this would be very useful to some and maybe worthless to others, but that is not out of character with other ATS features;
such as the ability to see all of a specific member's in-thread posts, or all of their posts in general.
In my opinion, this feature goes hand-in-hand with the feature to see all in-thread posts by a specific member.
A feature that allows us to see all in-thread posts by a specific member should have a counterpart that does basically the opposite.
'See all replies made by this member in this thread'
'See all replies to this member's specific comment'
