Is there a way to enable a nested viewing of posts instead of pushing responses down to the bottom of the post? I find nested forums much easier to navigate because its easier to see who you are responding to. See pic for an example of what I mean. Responses to posts are nested and offset below the original post so that it is easy to see the chain of progression on the responses.

Nested always looked ugly to me. I prefer this too.

(I’m trying to encourage our SynoMan. He was about to commit seppuku last night because of the widget thingy, we don’t want a repeat of that incident. Especially that we kicked out the robot and everything fell on Rusty’s and his hands).

I don't like nested too, but ok, I'm used of this platform. However, when I look at the platform like Reddit, it's really not for me. I'm always confused there, but that's just a matter of taste.

I think if you use that platform enough you get totally used of it.

I never liked nested threads either. Nested replies would imply that the thread is diverging and would probably be better to start a new thread. It also breaks up the flow of the conversation.

With enough categories there is already a subject root for a thread.

But still, it's always better to post a new thread then adding too much information to existing thread, because we can quickly get out of topic.
