@Gargron Suggestion: with Slow mode off, also use a JS page scroll trigger to automatically show new posts hidden behind 'x new items' when you hit the top of the page
@Gargron Like, you get a "this many tweets" and then click on it, then it unfolds straight down instead of up so you have to scroll down and then slowly back up
@Gargron I'm not sure what you mean. I just want a clear way to make sure I can read *all* new toots since the last toot that I read so that I can feel the satisfaction of being "caught up".
@Gargron - Seems like the Federated Timeline only scrolls for a couple seconds now then shows "x new items" and increments "x"
Clicking on that doesn't make it live again either.
@abortretryfail Oh, I see what you mean -- the button inserts the new items but keeps you in the position below them. I see
If you scroll up a lot and keep clicking on it, you can sometimes eventually catch up, but it's a lot of scrolling and clicking. :)
Not sure how useful that really is to people. Maybe it's just a gratuitous waste of bandwidth but I kind of enjoy having a feed of random junk.
@citrustwee "When you're scrolled down, new items at the top are now hidden behind "x new items" (regardless of "slow mode" setting)."
@Gargron ok i didnt read the regardless of slow mode setting part. my bad. yeah personally i dont like it either
@elthanor On mobile you can tap the top of the screen to scroll to top. On mobile and desktop you can table the column header to scroll it to top.
@Gargron I'd consider it a nice addition since there are apps that do that, but I can see why some may not be a fan of the idea.
@Gargron it's also annoying how you sometimes have to click multiple times back-and-forth to get back to the top and have it auto-scroll again
@Gargron main thing that bugged me was clicking on the column header to scroll to top, then clicking on "x new items" caused it to keep showing "x new items" notification instead of toggling the live view
@Gargron I used it and am new to Mastadon.
It's a reasonable UI tweak, IMHO. The big thing is people can understand there are things to see, and it's not hard to see them.
