Introducing Infinite Scroll

Introducing a new, simpler way to read The Mustang Source: Infinite Scroll! Now, instead of needing to click "Next" in a thread to keep reading additional posts, you will see a layout that automatically loads the next page of a thread as you scroll. We've also updated a few other parts of the layout so they remain easily accessible while you read, including access to thread search, a button to jump to the first unread post, and a Quick Reply box that lets you type a reply while scrolling through the thread content.

In tandem with Infinite Scroll, we also rolled out a revised post editor that lets you see your post formatting changes in real time. For example, if you choose to bold your text, the text will appear in bold right in the editor - no need to submit or preview the post to see the change. Keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl + B for bolding are now supported, too. Additionally, the revised editor includes a combined photo and attachment uploader. The forum will know to embed image uploads into your post, and place all non-image files (PDFs, Word docs, etc.) as attachments at the bottom. You can even upload multiple file types at once and the forum will sort them on the fly.

We're happy to answer any questions you may have about the new functionality right here in this thread. If you would like to keep the standard thread view with separate pages, or remove the related threads that appear at a thread's end, head to your User CP's Edit Options page and simply disable “Infinite Scroll” or “Related Threads." Please note that these options only apply to the desktop version of The Mustang Source.

Every new change is making me want to come back less.

This forum is getting worse and worse in member participation, you guys are not helping things one bit.
More ads than ever, slower loading, harder to navigate, harder to upload pictures, slower to use.

It's really too aggravating to use to keep coming back.

Fire whoever keeps coming up with, and whoever keeps approving these changes.

We appreciate the feedback, Gabe. Please note that infinite scroll in particular is entirely optional. You can disable it by going to your User CP's Edit Options page and selecting the "Disable Infinite Scroll" option towards the bottom of the page. The site will then switch back to the old paginated view it's always been.

In terms of the other issues you raised, we're working to ensure everything works as smoothly as possible. Our image uploader has admittedly had technical issues as of late, but our tech team is actively pushing out fixes to improve that experience. You should be able to upload and insert images into your posts more reliably now, but if not, please let me know what device/browser you're using and I'll bring it to the team to troubleshoot further.

For ads, our team is always in constant communication with our partners to keep load times as fast as possible. We also display significantly fewer ones to logged in members, so I encourage you to browse the site logged in whenever visiting.
