    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    If you're asking about recommending comments, then yes, there is a time window during which they can be recommended (or flagged). For Tip Jars only, that's seven days. For all other comments, that's 24 hours.

    We impose a limit in part because the site velocity is fast, and the likelihood of people returning to engage with a comment for a prolonged period after it's posted is low. If interaction is desired, however, the reply window is open much longer -- until the comments are closed on the story, which occurs nine days after its publication.

    If you're asking about recommending posts, there is no time limit.
