Hubpage needs to use a tool that when hubbers answer or moderate comments that the commenter's response block shows up instead of having to scroll past comments that have already been answered. Digg.com uses the method of having to scroll past other articles to submit your article in the hopes of you finding an interesting article to read during your scroll. However, Hubpages needs to cut to the chase and let the commenter box be available without having to scroll past comments that have been answered.
Perhaps they could insert a top of page or bottom of page button, or even a "jump to last comment" one....
Never really was a problem to me - but at that I probably just don't receive enough comments
You can edit the Comments Capsule so the most recent comment appears first...
But that still means the Comments box is at the bottom, right?
I use this feature on my hubs that have over 100 comments, but I still don't like it 100% because it leaves most recent at the top, so to comment you have to scroll to the bottom past the rest of the older comments. Then if you think you've missed something you wanted to respond to, you have to scroll back up.
I end up posting a few words, then editing the comment. This way when you post the few words it goes to the top next to the one you're trying to respond to. I edit and answer everything that needs to be answered. It's just a pain, but it's loads too slow to leave all of the comments up.
This is another reason I use the show most recent # comments feature, but they user still has to scroll/page down/end to the very bottom to leave their own comment, which is fine if the comments box is the last thing on the page, but some people put pictures and other capsules under that, which means you still have to scroll back up to find the box. Most unregistered users don't want to have to read through all the comments because they like asking the same questions as everyone else, and if they read they'd know the answer, but they're situation is always different...
I think this is a good point. Personally - I would like to see an "answer this comment" option in the comment moderation page. I often have multiple comments to answer and it would be far faster than going to each hub and scrolling down.
I'd love to be able to respond to individual comments on the moderation page too instead of having to go to each hub to do so.
Great suggestion, Mark.
Would it be at all possible to have each comment with its own thread but still appear on the same page as the original hub.
something like a 'more' button so that you can follow a specific comment thread. ? Then the comments line would not be so long !
folk can be put off at having to scroll down through a long list of comments to get to the end -- I was for a while, when I joined
scrolling through the comments and reading what they add to the discussion, I now realize, is part of the fun of reading a really good hub.

There are two issues that have led me to make this suggestion. One is that I recently received an email from a person who claimed he couldn't find the comment box on one of my hubs. The other issue is that some claim...

Last night I couldn't answer somebody's comment on one of my hubs. I tried a few times, and my answer kept disappearing. This morning I added a new comments capsule, and deleted the old one, but now I lost several...

Every time I try to post a comment, the page flips up to the top and, when I scroll back down, the comment is still there, unposted. I've cleaned my cache, tried a different browser but no luck.

I have been trying to leave comments on several articles that I have read this morning and somehow it bounces without being able to post. Is anyone experiencing this problem?

This is a suggestion for an additional feature to the option to order comments by either oldest or most recent as first-appearing.The current tool is useful for hubs with many comments, as I means people do not have to...

There seems to be a new bug the last couple of days where I can't add a comment to a Q&A answer. Does anyone else have this problem? The comment field is there after each answer. But when I enter text...
