    It would be a much easier and more interactive experience if replies from hub author could be placed directly under the comment he/she is replying to. They too often seem to get lost in the shuffle and can be hard to find - and correlate.

      Threaded comments have been mentioned before.  Some like the idea, some hate it.

      If it had an option (as we have here in the forum) to switch between threaded and flat view, I'd be happy.  With no option, I prefer flat chronological.

      This is precisely what I came here to suggest but stopped to see what your thread was all about. It would indeed be so helpful if the comments were not so scattered making it harder to find a response to a comment. So some people do not like it, others do - I think it is practical especially where a hub has a lot of comments. It will reduce the time people spend giving feedback on comment or following a comment they made.

        in the 'question' forum - there is an option for threaded comments or not.. why can't each author choose their preference, altho, i don't see the appeal of having to search for a comment or a response and not being certain it is even the one you seek...but..that's just me..

          Well, I guess it depends on how you interact with other hubbers. The appeal to find a comment is created by the importance one attaches to a subject of interest or the hubber they are interacting with. That is how I see it.

      I am with you, just slightly different.

    IrmKam - I like your idea in your closed thread about getting notifications when someone replies to your comment. Just like on Facebook, when you talk to or about someone, you can make sure they are aware.  I have seen this done on other sites, and I think it would be a useful feature here as well.

      HP does send notifications about comments on hubs you commented on or are following. However, they are not specific and they summarize them daily into one email. I think one email is a great idea, but a capsule that addresses each comment separately together with the email would make things do much better and interaction so much easier.

        it is done on sites far smaller and less professional than this...

          My response is probably not clear. What I was trying to say is that replies attached to comment capsules like I saw on Myspace made it so much easier to interact on blogs (hubs). I am aware of the email HP sends but I was saying that along with the email that is sent, if we had a reply capsule attached to comments, that would be so great.

    The comments are logged based on what time they were submitted. In order to match each reciprocal comment to the original comment would mean that the timer would be off. I don't agree with that.

    There is a capsule to reply to each comment. After you approve the comment you click reply and a capsule will appear different from the main capsule.

      What timer will be out of sync, Cardisa?

        The comments are placed in the hub based on what time they were made. That simply means that they are monitored by time. If you  notice your comments you will see how many minutes or hours ago a comment was made. So if all the reciprocal comments follow the original comment it would mean that HP would have to stop moderating the comments by time.

          Such a feature as has been proposed here could easily be misused. For example, an author could wait a long time before posting a lengthy reply in a religious or political discussion on a hub. It could give a distorted view of the discussion that actually took place.

            So why not limit the number of words and quality of responses one can give? If a reply is too long, why not automatically turn it into a hub like Facebook turns long status posts to notes?

              It is just not the kind of HubPages that I would enjoy to belong to. Sorry. I find the current system with a chronological order for all comments not fancy, but reasonably straightforward.

                I agree with you WE. I also wouldn't want to limit my commentors by placing a limit on their words. And I also wouldn't want some one else creating a hub from my hub discussion.

          I do not see why not. Time is broken down in minutes, hours, days, months, years, why not proceed with that natural format? I am just trying to understand and think beyond what exists.

            Cardisaposted 6 years agoin reply to this

            That is the format that HP uses... time....the natural format that you speak of....years, months, days, minutes and seconds. That is how the comments are logged...based on the time they were placed.

    Well, now I understand why the status quo. Sometimes there is no better way of knowing how something might work except to give it a try. Trials are expensive I guess, but if this is how decisions are made, then I guess this will need to be brought up often enough!
