Append new articles to end of list

Is it possible through plugin or core to append new unread articles to the end at all times instead of when there's more than 10-20 articles left?

Also could new articles show when on the 'no new unread articles found to display' page so a refresh to view them isn't required?

This is a popular request of some other readers but it's never been implemented afaik. There is an auto refresh userscript for another reader that's really annoying because it refreshes in the middle of reading.

This is a terrible idea because it breaks article sorting.

I wonder why.

Ya it would wreck sorting by newest and title but with sorting oldest it's already appending (and sorts fine) until you get down to a low number or time of unread articles. Would there be any problems allowing articles to append all the time when sorting by oldest?

It would need adding a special case and additional complexity which just doesn't sound worth it for this one mode. Especially since people would start asking why it works like this in this case and different in another.

Okay, I wrongly assumed there was code instructing to append or not that could be tweaked/removed. How is it determined? Is there a set amount of unread or time?

Each article has an ID. When loading more stuff, sql query with limit x skip y is performed.

Is it currently possible for a plugin to do this?
