A story I published last Sunday 25 Nov at 4pm is still open for comments. I thought it was a week (I used to think it was 10 days and IDK if it changed or if I got hold of a wrong idea). https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/11/24/1901529/-KosAbility-Medical-gaslighting-when-the-doctor-prescribes-self-doubt#comment_75625598

Weird thing with that story is dozens or more people began commenting telling their horror stories sometime late last week, many days after publication. I discovered this accidentally. The poll in the story had a bit over 1000 responses mid-week and now has over 2,000 so that's a lot of new readers.

Not urgent. I;m just curious.

    Hello, Besame, and thanks for asking.

    The basic time period during which stories are open to comments is nine days post-publication. Interestingly enough, however, that clock is restarted if a story is 1) edited and then the changed version is published and 2) republished to another blog.

    For the most part, stories that meet either one of these conditions usually go stale and pass unnoticed anyway. Apparently yours struck a nerve and prompted commentary far longer than many posts do.

    Thanks. Follow up question - that clock is *restarted* *if* a story is 1)
    edited and then the changed version is published *and* 2) republished to
    another blog. If/and meaning both criteria must be met?
