The ability to view/expand, in one's comment record page, *full* threads which one has posted on

Something which Disqus doesn't quite do - it only allows a truncated 'view context' expansion of threads

Thumb Up

Seems fine to me. The reply arrow is odd. Goes the wrong way and requires more brain cycles than the grey bar did.

I very much like the idea of long-winded replies being faded out to silence. Can we have "I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air" appended to them as well?

Long comments

Could you have the preview display all text after about 150 words struck through with a note: "You do realise no-one is going to read this?"

Or you could do all long comments in green, to reflect the madness...

My posts is screwed up. It now takes much more space and the linkback to the original comment is obeying some rule which I can't fathom regarding if it appears or not. Yuck.

Permalink is not a substitute for displaying a post via an inline anchor, by the way. How can I tell if anyone has replied to my post without going hunting through the dross?

As amusing as it is to be able to report your own posts for abuse...

...is it needed, from a "this is space that could be used for something else" perspective?

Also I posted something as a reply way back on the first page here, not sure if it's been read underneath all the other posts.

Suggestion.

Lock this "new forum wishlist", and add "new forum wishlist mkII". This one is getting a trifle unwieldy. IMO, of course. YMMV.

When reporting a comment for abuse, the ability to add a small snippet of text detailing why you felt this was abusive would be good. (Followed link; was spam. Off topic ad hom attack. Potentially libellous. Etc.)

In at least some cases it might save the mods some time. (Espessially with spam links.)

How about a date indicator in the "Your Topics" box?

It would be nice to see at a glance which topics have been updated since last I looked...
