I noticed on a few hubs of people that have been here over a few years that their comments capsules get s t r e t c h e d out with 200 some odd comments. While its nice to have that many comments , does anyone else think it makes the article seem drawn- and- qaurtered ?
I'm suggesting a new scrolling comment capsule that might hold all comments but show possibly , five to ten comments , with the ability to scroll-through the rest while staying anchored.
Photo capsules give the option of having thumbnails view or slideshow, border or no border, so i thought maybe there could be a CLASSIC style comment box or SCROLL-THROUGH comment box. Choice would be on the Hubber. sub-options could be show 5, 10, 20 comments on the scroll at a time and also the option of showing most recent/ or latest comments first versus oldest comments first ( last options already available )
This would also let the ads and links that are underneath the comments be seen quicker instead of being so far down the page and keep the hub anchored in the window which would make it look better ,IMO.
I would rather see new features that can be directly used on hubs than new forum features, myself.
Any thoughts? and be honest ...I'm just throwing this out there to get feedback. Good idea or Bad idea !!!
Personally, I think it is a great idea. Hope it can be implemented.
I'm not positive, but I think the hub author can adjust how many comments are shown at a time (to a certain extent) by editing the comment capsule on the hub.
Valid point, ill have to check that out, although i don't think the rest of the other comments would be scrollable to the user
Thanks for that info. Clears that up I guess! except for the scrollable part which would keep the hub anchored while reading comments!

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 that scrolling all the way down the page to the comment box at the bottom might...

We have the option of placing the last comment first so we don't have to scroll down to the bottom to view new comments. But when replying to said comments we still need to scroll all the way down to reply. I am thinking that for people with lots of comments it makes no difference if the capsule is...

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...

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 scroll through 50 or more comments to read the most recent.However, it would be...

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