Endless Scrolling
Some people seem to really like this, so I figured that I should give it a try.

Main development on this plugin will commence after the AJAX page loading feature is complete on AtomBB (this shouldn't really take long, it should be finished somewhat quickly after I deal with the more important matters) as it relies on that feature.
The AJAX page loading feature has been implemented, as you can see although, it hasn't fully
stabilised yet. Main development on this plugin may be delayed until, more AJAX infrastructure is
built up.

Warning: The Endless Scrolling plugin would bypass the guest topic cache, so guests may suffer a
massive performance hit, if you have it enabled.
Bleh, endless scrolling is just a fad.

Meh, some communities seem to like the feature alot although, there are some big problems which I
find with endless scrolling in general. It's not too hard to implement and people seem to
like this feature, so why not?
endless scrolling is gud
it saves having to keep finding the page thingy and clicking it

Well yes, but it causes problems like losing your place on the page, in Discourse's case.. breaking
some of the browser hotkeys and it messes with the scrollbar depending on the implementation.
Scrollbar issue isn't a problem with the Read More implementation, but you would still need to be
clicking something to get more content in that specific case.
