Comments on Hubs

    Some hubs have thousands of comments which make them very difficult to read, would it be possible to have a comments archive added to those hubs, for example they could show the ten latest comments and a link to more comments for this page, it would help keep the pages to be more readable and easier to manage.....jimmy

    I was just thinking that recently as I had to scroll a loooong way down on one of my hubs to get to the most recent so I could approve it.

    Awsome idea, Jimmy! Maybe the "Hub Gods" will get this started for us! That would be nice!

    I am for it if it is the last 10 most relevant comments that will be displayed. If a reader wants to read all the comments before posting his/her own, there should be an option for it too smile

    Just a thought on the downside of this.  Much of the link love your profile page gets on Hubpages is from comments, which all link back to your profile.  If a comment archive page is created, it will put those comments on those pages in link oblivion, passing very little page rank.

      True, I did not think about this...

        Wouldn't the links still exist, just on another page?

          This page will have much lower page rank than the original hub page, so links will be lower quality.

    Great Idea.
    I do not have to worry too much. Never had 1,000's of comments.

    I so asked about this several months ago and no one like the idea. :-( Maybe I conveyed the idea differently.

    I think showing the latest 10-15 comments would be much better. There could be a link for next 16-30 comments or a "see all comments" button.

    Limiting the number of comments displayed seems like a good option to add to the comments capsule.  We'll see what we can do.

    I like the idea, especially if the page author could have a 'sticky' feature to select favourite comments for display, not just latest comments.

      That seems like a good upgrade to Mischa's idea.

    I did, to my mind a great hub and it managed 8 comments.another one which has been held up for review is still going strong and keeps managing to climb to the top every other week.
    No telling other people's tastes.

    Great idea!!
    There are some hubs that will just about open up because of the large amount of comments!!

    A very good suggestion and the hub owner would have more pages for adsense impressions. And still on the same note,  I have a feeling many hubbers and visitors would be interested in a counter that shows the number of visitors online at any one moment?

    Comment section should remain as it is. There are only a few hubs having so many comments. most of the hubs have only few. New suggession will create a humble-jumble.

    There are actually a number of hubs with tons of comments. It will help loading and make the page easier to scroll.
