Second test of threading

February 16th, 2015

OK, threading still doesn’t seem to work. See what you think of the other tweak (100 comments, first page shwon first)

    It’s supposed indent when you reply to a comment, isn’t it? If so, it doesn;t seem to be wroking yet.

    @Tim Macknay

    Should be indented from Tim Macknay?

    I’ve lost it (the thread, I mean).

    Um, JQ’s already said that threading didn’t work, so he’s trying two other tweaks: 100 comments maximum and showing the first (not last) page first. I’ve already said that I like the second and a quick and unscientific review of threads over 100 comments seems to show that by that stage comments are well and truly off-topic and/or reflect commentators’ known and fixed positions.

    Go for both, I say.

    I find it easier to keep in my mind who said what when under the old system. For people my age, the old system provides good memory training and training for pattern recognition.

    I like the old way, but that is not to say that I wouldn’t cope with change; it is good for old people to have to do this, they say.

    The way the site currently works, I can scan the whole thread and pick out the bits that seem appropriate for me to comment on from my “known and fixed position(s)”; but I’m never sure if I am ‘appropriate’ or ‘on topic’.

    This should be a reply to the first comment. OK?

    Off-topic request to JQ:
    Sydney University has sort-of joined the fossil divestment movement by committing to reduce the carbon footprint of its investment portfolio by 20%. Greenwashing? Slippery slope to virtue? Complete waste of time as somebody else will hold the shares?

    So we still have the giant list of links to the right that’s always longer than the comment thread, making scrolling a bit annoying.

    Nope, it’s still just a list of comments. I think other people have pointed that out.

    No, too, so threading not really working yet.
