Infinite Scrolling Wins, Users DiePosted: February 10, 2012 Hey Matt says about infinite scrolling here
Howdy guys, thanks for the feedback.
The initial usage stats from infinite scroll look really good — people are reading more posts which means they’re spending more time on your site. As you might guess, people are way more likely to just scroll down than they were to click the “next page” button — it’s faster and better. It’s the future of all web pages with more than one page of content.
We’re still working out some bugs, and as some of you noted your footer widgets are temporarily inaccessible, and figuring out the best way to deal with that and other edge cases.
A few people have asked if “everyone” is against this why we’re just not turning it off. Well, there’s a thread like this which seems overly negative for pretty much everything we launch. People don’t come to the forums to say they like something they usually come when they have a problem. That’s why we ask for feedback on the forums, to find the problems, not to gauge popularity. For that we’ve learned to look at stats, what people do versus what they say. This is better because it allows us to get feedback from millions of people in addition to the few thousand who frequent the forums. Both voices are important.
Thanks for your patience, and as we fix these issues up we’ll continue rolling out infinite scrolling to the rest of the themes that work with it. Also thank you to the people on the thread who provided calm, rational feedback without attacks or hyperbole. The team is always here for you.
We are protesting against it
We can not bear these changes at all. Imagine the time when all of themes are affected from this. Imagine a visitor comes to your site an it takes half an hour to load. He has to scroll for an hour to see what’s there in the footer after 2500 posts. Imagine there are 100 youtube videos on a single page loading at the same time. How good will this be? How can you say that this will be convenient to the visitors?
