The current discussions format makes it so that only 10 replies can be seen at any given time, and you have to click on "view older replies" in order to get an additional 10 replies on the screen. There are a lot of discussions that have hundreds of replies on them on the wiki's that I edit on, and having to click "view older replies" again and again just to get to the beginning is annoying.
There also plenty of bugs that come with clicking "view older replies" multiple times. Sometimes it will get to a point where the page will refuse to load any more replies, and I have to refresh the page and start again. Or, if I click on "view older replies" too quickly, it will load multiple copies of the same reply and break the discussions thread, and I once again have to reload the page and start again. This is a massive headache that was not an issue on the previous forums.
I feel like there should be an option to load all of the replies on the page instead of forcing people to click "view older replies" again and again and hope the page can handle those inputs. If not, the bugs with loading older replies should at least be addressed.
