I see you've put the new comments up again.

Please remind me why you had to change the formatting so completely? After being back to the old formatting for a few days, the new looks even worse than it did the first time around. I have to click into a comment to see it outlined if I want to make sure I'm separating it from other comments, and that is something that is more than slightly irksome.

    Thanks! I’m on an iPad, how can I go back to the old comments? I don’t like the new format.

    I followed a link on another help desk thread and now I’m back to the old format.

    I too found the link back to 'old comments.'

    using new comments I lose function of 'swipe back' on my trackpad.

    As siab mentioned, it’s hard to track who is commenting. Going back to the old system reaffirmed to me that it was easier on my eyes and easier to reply to the correct comment. I haven’t read a diary with many comments since the switch but if the scrolling issue is still there I won’t be around much. I seriously can’t deal with being lurched to a new location, unable to determine if I was jumped backwards or forwards.

    Shift-J doesn't work.

    Using Chrome under XP Pro.

    How do I shut off the new comment format?
