RZK: When you post a reply, it shows up right at the top when you hit post. After refreshing the page it will be at the bottom where it belongs. In other words, you are the only person that will see your post at the top and it will only be immediately after you hit post, everyone else will see at the bottom from the first time they load the thread.
And yes, I am very much not digging that the reply box is at the top. It doesn't promote 'discussion' at all. Just an OP with random replies and no actual conversation. Now obviously we still have conversational threads here, but thats because thats how we operate. I would think many/most new people will see the OP, then see the reply box and go ahead and reply, regardless of what 4 other pages of replies might say. That shit, will get real fuckin old.
Not to mention its just annoying as fuck having to scroll back to the top of the page to post my reply.
How about at least a compromise where you have one at the top and one at the bottom?
