    Default How to you like the auto-combine feature?

    I thought nobody liked it, but Hicks says some do. So I thought I'd get some numbers to see if I'm way off base.

    By the way, this is an auto-combined post.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I really like it. It really helps when you want to respond to several posts. Also, I always feel kind of bad when I double post. Finally, it just looks a lot better. Love it. Keep it going, admins.

    I don't use it as much so I don't really hate it.

    It can be good and bad.

    It can cut back on spamming, but at times it can also be anoying if you are trying to make a seperate point and want a whole post dedicated to that point.

    I'm a fan. The 'edited....' part at the bottom is great. It'd be confusing otherwise.

    If you reply to a couple of posts, especially where there are several points and lots of quoted text, it can make for a long single post. I realize technically it is no different that 2-3 shorter posts but 1 long monster post seems more overwhelming.

    Also, in a busy thread a person might miss your reply to them because when you first posted you didn't answer them... then in further posting you answer them BUT they've already read the post before it included your reply to their initial post.

    If there was an option between "Hated" and "lukewarm" I would've chosen that. But I more 'hate' it than am 'lukewarm' to it so I chose "hate".

    Hate it. I prefer separate posts for separate points.

    Actually I don't quite love it, but I'm more than lukewarm about it.

    I find myself agreeing with Kegboy a lot recently... This is no exception.
