    It's because his posts are usually very colorful and it's treated as art.

    I'm going to guess that it's probably just a setting on the plugin and he has coincidentally avoided all the windows, or he's exempt (or a bug). lol

    It could be the app. Whatever it is, we need it fixed so we can recognize benzr's posts from the others

    I have noticed that when posting from the desktop computer, it seems to depend on if you click on the "Reply" button at the bottom of a post or use the quick reply box at the bottom of the page.
    Cant remember which one merges and which doesn't. Test that out sometime.

    Personally, I think it should be time dependent, I've seen posts merged easily with days gone by!

    Yeah I'd say 1 full day has to pass, that way people can bump threads if necessary to get a response but if they remember something later, like me, and add it, it's not constantly bumping multiple times a day.

    If something is added more that a few hours apart, it should bump, as it is new content, but I'd like to see it separate from the original content. I recently ran into a post where I originally liked the first (?) post, but the follow up posts (multiple merged) did not merit a like as I couldnt figure out what in that post I liked...

    I understand that users that post with the apps cant add or edit to their post, so the merge may make sense at some point, but for pc users, the merge is just overkill

    Did I say overkill?

    There is an edit button in the RDF app (click on post, click on edit "pencil" icon in top right).

    I'm looking at getting a different double post addon. We've gone through two of them which have conflicts with more important addons we use.

    Seems to be an issue with posts from the Tapatalk app not being merged. Not a big deal, I just couldn't figure out what was different about those posts at first.

    Tapatalk will never be merged, iirc, just the way the thing works.

    It’s funny how lazy you get about going back and editing posts when you can just make another reply for something you forgot to mention, thinking it’ll get merged for you. We get used to conveniences so quickly!

    I'm keeping an eye on it, if it gets to be a problem we will reactivate it but there is a function of being able to post posts in succession.

    Heh, that’s not feedback or complaining, just marveling at how quickly we take conveniences for granted.

    I rarely find merging ever helpful.

    If I want to edit an original post, I edit it. If I want a new post I reply.
