We want immutable threads, please.

We want immutable threads, please.

No, not in a coding sense, but in a topic sense in the community posts. I’ve gotten a few sighs that people are getting spammed from threads they have participated in, but that have spun off in a direction that doesn’t interest them.

Although you can mute threads, you may want to get notified for the on-topic comments, and you may prefer not to block or silence individual users.

My suggestions

– If you want to change the topic of a thread – create a new thread

– If you want to change the angle of the topic, reshare the old post, perhaps with a quote of the comment you want to address, and then add your new angle.

Yeah, I’ll try to do the same 😛

May the topics stay focused.
