I wish that when you hit the reply button under a comment, that the reply would show underneath that comment, instead of at the bottom of the page. If you have a lot of comments at once, sometimes it's hard to keep track of which ones you've replied to. Also that would make it easier for others, who are reading the comments, if they could see the comment and reply together.
Good point Sherry! That's happened to me a few times when I've had a lot of comments. It would make things a little easier.
Here I thought I was managing my replies to comments incorrectly somehow. Great point. Thank you!
I agree with this. It would tie the reply with the comment, and make it more personal.
On a different site, comments would also have hashtags or other indication so that the person who was addressed would get a notification that they were being addressed. I think that would also help since no one has the time to go back to hubs they have already read, and may miss a reply in the homefeed.

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

Hello, I know I suggest too many new features, but I noticed that it is very easy to respond to comments on the HubPages iPhone app. I have the comment right in front of me and have three choices underneath,...
