I was looking at the new layout on a hub and it made me think that the
'go to last comment' does not really show up as much as it might.
I sometimes get comments from people who are not regular HubPage visitors and they might not notice this wording or know where to leave a comment,now.
Would it be possible for the words to be a bit bolder or larger. To have words added that say something like - and to leave your own comment or to leave a comment here, would encourage comments.
Not easy to come up with the right words for it but I guess you will know what I mean. Thank you.
2uesday, thanks for the suggestion. In our user testing on the new Hub design, we never encountered folks have problems with finding where to leave comments. Plus, Comments and how to leave them is a pretty standard web convention with which users are accustomed.
Making the link more prominent does present problems as the more things you ask a user to click, the less likely they are to click on anything. So you want to be very careful with how that link compete with clicks to ads, related hubs, the follow button, etc. Given that users can find the comment box in our testing without trouble, it's unlikely that we will make the change you suggest. Just being honest.
