Ask HN: Can you fix the page expired nuisance

Yeah, can you fix that. I love browsing, but it is frustrating when I go back to HN after reading a nice article and hitting the next page and seeing the page expired page.

Save the clicks!

But then how would you know you have been reading Hacker News for too long?

This has been a known issue for a long time. See PG's responses in this thread:


Additional threads about the same topic:



I was well aware that there have been other threads, but if we bug them enough they might change it. =)

Knowing why it happens (and as a person who posted in some of those previous years-old threads, I'm familiar with the issue) doesn't make it any less annoying when it does.

It is embarrassing that a site visited primarily by technologists has such an amateur bug.

It's not amateur, it's over-engineered.

UX > Code-fu, PG.

The chrome extension is pretty useful, the auto page scroll reduces the annoyance.
