Discussion on: What would your opinion be of a "reading position" indicator on DEV?

Really distracting and that is part due the horizontal vertical disjointed feeling.

Alternative idea: liquid tags that 'chapterize' a post, an author could decide to tag significant parts of the post to relay progress. Kinda like waypoints, then something in the UI could change. To relay that importantness.

Something like:

{% progres(0) #intro %}
This is a really long article on tabs vs spaces ...

{% progress(45) #chapter 56 %}
... And that is why it's really important. 

{% progress(100) #conclusion %}
... so please use tabs okay.
