I feel like the answers should be organised like they are in YouTube . When scrolling threw a thread you always miss the context when just seeing the answer/response,
yes, I follow what you mean…you can lose context because of the linear style the forum posts are listed.
On the risk of reviving very old and solved things,
the way Discourse (this forum software) works, replies to the thread or the ones directly above it do not get shown to be connected. If there is however an “unrelated” post between them, a “reply” button appears.
Clicking that reveals the reply chain.
