Open, LowestPublic

How will this work on pages with a lot of threads (e.g. WP's village pump)? If it just keeps loading threads as you scroll, the page will eventually become so big it'll be impossible to navigate and it'll eat up all your RAM (especially a problem on mobile devices).

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
