…seems like a stupid question, but –
how should I post things!?
Like, longer, multi-part posts? (Like I just did?)
I clearly wrote this post with the old Sliver boards in the back of my mind, without thinking too much about how it would look on a modern board. We can either:
- Put multi-part posts all as replies to one thing. This causes a giant wall of text. (This is what I did). The post I put up was only about 6k words, which isn’t all that long, but it already feels kinda strange to read it as an endless scroll.
- Put each part of a post as its own topic. This feels so…AOL 1995? But may work better, it avoids the wall of text, it lets people mark their progress in reading (“oh, I’ve only read to part 4 of this post before I had to take a break”).
…I’m not really sure which works better. Any thoughts?
