XF 1.5 Conversation issues

So another member and I were going back and forth in a conversation today, and after just a few passes of conversation we were having to scroll down a bunch to reply, the other option seems to be to only allow a few replies per page but this still seems unnecessary.

Is there a way to get past this annoying feature?
Like flipping it upside down where the post box is up top right above the last message sent?

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> conversation_view

Remove the red pieces near the top:

Rich (BB code):
<xen:title>{$conversation.title}{xen:helper pagenumber, $page}</xen:title>

<xen:if is="{$xenOptions.selectQuotable}">
	<xen:container var="$bodyClasses">SelectQuotable</xen:container>

<xen:require css="conversation.css" />

		<xen:if is="{$canReplyConversation}">
			<a href="{xen:link 'conversations/reply', $conversation}" class="callToAction"><span>{xen:phrase reply_to_conversation}</span></a>

<div class="pageNavLinkGroup">
	<div class="linkGroup">

That will give you a convenient reply button at the top:

But it still forces you to scroll down to see what the message was, so that code offers a quick way to reply up top but it doesnt seem to alleviate the scrolling down issue :/
