Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
The approach I have used for years won't solve your immediate problem, but will permit you to avoid it in the future.
Before the start of each event I seed the random number generator with the event number. This means I can always re-run any given event without any information other than the event number (assuming no changes to the simulation). It also makes it trivial to manage multiple jobs to combine their outputs -- I just need to ensure they have disjoint sets of event numbers.
The default random number generator is documented to ensure independent streams of random numbers for seeds from 0 to 900,000,000.
