Okay, I was going through one of Forever's tl;dr(Too Long, Don't Read)'s, taking up like most of scroll bar space, and with other posts, made it small so I missed most of what she was saying.

And suddenly I realized: wouldn't it be easier to give some posts a scroll bar? So that it saves up space?

Well this proposal, not demanding.

So what do you think?

You can just change themes, y'know. That thing made me not use the Gen. V themes. I hope it gets removed. If not, oh well I can manage.

The only possible problem I can see is that when you're using the mouse to scroll down the page, instead of going down the page you'll be stuck in the same spot scrolling through one person's post. Of course you can get around this by just scrolling with a mouse outside the posting area but yeah I remember somebody saying something about this once (not sure if it was this forum) and the idea was rejected because of that. But yeah, I don't mind whether it happens or not.

I think it would be more annoying than helpful. Besides; I think that's only in Gen. 5.

Yeah if it's a problem with a certain style, they should add scrollbars to that one style :/ Why change the whole carton for one bad egg if you can just change out the one bad egg?

That really shouldn't be a problem at all lol. That's just nit picking, not doing it because of the effort it might take is more of a reason than that. ):

If I recall, some styles actually work like this, so if you want that functionality, just switch over to a style that does.

Personally, I would rather not have a scroll bar in long posts.

Actually, there is a way for an individual to do this. It by using CSS in a post. Just like this. vv
[css-div="height: 50px; width: 100%; overflow: auto; border: 1px dashed black;"]This is an example. This is an example. This is an example. This is an example. This is an example. This is an example.
