that is an example of how ridiculous it can get.... (without code collapsing..)
Is it a feature that will be brought back in the near future??

Who should do this? Polyethen? It seems, he is no longer interested in our forum. And I'm afraid, he didn't give anybody else the permission to do anything at the forum-software. Maybe he thinks, buing a SW and paying for it is enough. But: nobody asked him to do that.
It would be okay, If he also would be online here and solve all the problems we have now, which we didn't have in the past. And to test all changes bevor activating them. And to ask the useres instead of doing things by himself, nobody wants and nobody needs.
I really don't know, what's going on with him. He had such a high reputation here in the past. But what's now left? He does everything to ruin it.
Poly, where are you?
I made a lil sample site which re-adds this functionality back to the forum, additionally it adds copy to clipboard, and direct download of a code-box. it may be reviewed under
Allthough it has been tested and should work out of the box, some users of older IE versions might expirience problems, since my downloaded version of a forum site doesnt have all neccessary dependencies and thus it may result in errors which MSIE doesnt handle nicely.
Additionally some users (seen on Opera 9.8) might expirience a security warning which happens because the downloader triiggers a hidden form in an iframe for a nice integrated ajax download.
At present the Copy to Clipboard doesnt produce neither a highlight of the text nor a change of the cursor, which i haven't been able to track down yet.
Integrate it. Now
Btw, nice to see you back dR with that much typing everywhere!
My attempt utilizes jQuery, and ZeroClipboard - whereas the forum's html is mainly utilizes CKEDIT, LightBox and ProtoType. Additionally - as for coding - the internal structure of the documents may undergo a optimization - implementing some (all) nice techniques from h5bp.com
A simple, yet drastic method may be to simply switch off the animation or have it obey to some user settings individually. The 1st simply removes eyecandy, while second requires lot more coding
When we can build up a list with which browsers lagging (high load) occures i can simply have 'em excluded. - This requires only little coding, but a huge testing scenario where many users (>= 50) report their expiriences.
