I’ve Decided

I’ve decided that the nested comments are more trouble than they are worth for a blog like mine. I think they would work great on a blog that only gets at most 20 comments on a post. But on the theonomy thread, I think the limitations were pretty obvious. I have therefore switched back to the older way. Currently I have it set on displaying 100 comments per page, with the last page (and therefore newest comments) being the first page you see when clicking on a post. Please let me know what you think.

    Initial reaction: Whew!

    It’s a tribute to your blog that you got mugged by success — 900+ posts on some topics.

    I think that’s a good move. Since you had the comment numbers, conversations could still proceed with relative ease.

    I’ll second that decision!

    While they have some advantages, they can seem to confuse the pattern of response and isolate discussion, but it was good to try it.

    Now, on popular threads, those who speak to be seen will have to post at least once every hundred posts. When the number of such folks exceeds 100, we have a problem. :)

    Quit being so popular, Pastor, or we’re going to start having our doubts about you. From the day’s of my youth I’ve been taught that if more than a dozen arm-folded curmudgeons like something, it’s probably wrong.

    Thanks Lane — I had to give up reading comments with the threaded responses. This way is definitely simpler.

    I’ve been walking around singing, “I have decided to follow Jesus” for the last two days; it’s been driving me bonkers! I just figured out why: it’s this stinkin’ post. Every time I’ve come to this blog, I’ve left singing that song!!

    It’s like a curse. Would you post a few more thinks so I can regain my sanity? I woke up last night at 0200 singing it!

    Okay. I’ll post on deciding for Christ.
