Don't count me in the super PAC, it's not a big deal. Just seems the author knows whether a post is related to his last post or not. Either way, the sun will rise in the east tomorrow.

They do, but they don't care.

I know damn well I don't care. If I have the option of posting 5 posts in rapid succession by not using any effort (by NOT using the edit button and NOT editing my posts and just adding to it as I read replies in the thread), vs having to use effort to hit the edit button and add small replies as I go, I'm going to go the lazy route. It's just so much easier and you guys can read my 5 individual posts just as easy.

It's just a function for cleanliness of the forum, not to mention a practical method to prevent blatant padding in the same thread.

Can you make it a profile option that defaults to Merge. And if a poster prefers it off, they can.

I do care and I like to control what gets merged and what doesn't and not want to depend on some automatic thing based on time to decide for me.

I'm certainly in with what ever you decide and appreciate your caring enough to even discuss it :)

If you'd like to code a XenForo addon that does this, be my guest. Or find a XenForo addon that does it - I haven't found one, though.

I'm not doing it, though. I can list 30 things off the top of my head that are a higher priority than making this an option (it requires coding, it's not like I can just add an option to your preferences and it works) for the maybe 3 people who would use it (I'm being sarcastic, of course there's *probably* more than 3 people, but ONLY because this thread exists; I guarantee if it didn't then less than 3 would use it)...
