I have my comments set to read from last to first. It seems easier that way to follow the natural thread. Now I am thinking though that doing it the other way around so that the most recent comments are first could encourage readers to share the hub since the share button is right above the most recent comment. What do you think about this?
I really don't like most recent comments first.
It feels unnatural and it's a pain in the botty when you are responding to a quite lengthy comment, especially if there are a fair number of comments already.
sure...last to first sounds like a plan...I think you may have listened to that unexplained sound hubb to many times LOL
I need to go figure out what I've got the settings on. I have a very weird deal right now, and I don't like it. Basically, it's a "what the heck is the system with these?" kind of thing...
OK. I went and checked. It WAS on "display most recent first". I just switched it to (essentially), "No, don't do that."
I think the most-recent-first things is particularly confusing for the person whose Hub it is. There's the thing where comments show up somewhere else, and you can approve them or not. Then there's the thing where people can comment in the feeds. Then you go to reply, and you can either post a new comment or else reply right under the person's comment (IF you've already approved it.)
I'm glad you did this thread and reminded me to go look and take care of that (because it's been driving me nuts, and I haven't "addressed the matter" because I haven't even felt like dealing with it.).
If a page has a lot of comments putting the latest first seems to work. Seeing something a day or perhaps a few hours old encourages people to get involved in a discussion.

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment....
