Threaded comments

2009-06-06

in Daily updates, Internet matters

WordPress now supports the option of threaded comments, where people can respond to a specific comment in a sub-thread, rather than just adding to the bottom of a single list.

Do people think incorporating this feature would improve this site, or make it less functional?

I would have no objections to giving it a whirl if doing so was easily reversible, but it seems certain that any switch back to linear comments would turn threaded conversations into confusing messes. As such, I would have to be pretty certain the shift would be beneficial in order to make it.

I wouldn’t risk messing things up.

The current system is fine.
