Thanks for the feedback.
I have been considering changing the behavior for new thread pages for a while new. It wouldn't impact too much and would indeed make it for a better experience. After reading it and talking to balrog, I decided to go through and change it. Now the user only gets a response after the new thread page has been created.
However, for new posts, I really don't think it would be a good idea to give a response after generating the page.
Small comments on some stuff there:
The "refresh every 5s on 404" is an endchan thing.
The selection thing is a front-end feature and endchan already implemented it.
The clarity of the elements at the bottom of the screen is a front-end issue. My front-end, for example, makes it clear when you have or when you don't have to use the captcha.
The feedback on deletion have been improved on 1.7, now it tells you how many threads and posts were deleted.
And some things are incorrect:
If the front-end isn't working properly and ends up making only the form button available, that is a front-end issue.
Post history is not implemented at all, even for global staff.
Infinity is not free software anymore at the moment.https://github.com/ctrlcctrlv/infinity/issues/541#issuecomment-227951724
from the horse's mouth.
You can only report multiple posts on a single action if allowed by the global settings, and that setting is off by default.
Anything I didn't comment about its because I don't intend to change for one reason or another and I am not really looking for an argument here. Your feedback was good in general, but I just don't agree with some parts.
