    This is a simple suggestion. When users post within a specified time limit right after each other, we can have their posts merged together automatically.

    Example

    I'm not sure if I'm spoiled from my website or now, but this feature and not being able to use the "tab key" on my keyboard would be a nice addition tbh.

    A lot of forums have this feature. Automatically merging posts if you were the last person to post and you decide to post again without editing the previous one. Very handy. Please re-add it ;-;

    Even I, a masterrace global moderator with the knowledge of 10,000 suns cant comprehend how much work it would take to upgrade all of our stuff site wide. TJ knows though, and hes our hero.

    I can potentially get you some help if you would like. The Xenforo website I moderate just recently updated last week :)

    I'm assuming the unupdated xenforo would explain the "non tab" feature as well haha

    It's 2015, I don't understand why most forums behave like they did in the early 2000's. Merging should be fixed and enabled by default across all board software.
