Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working on a few tweaks to the All Comments page (first introduced back in January). The most visible change is that users can now create new discussion threads, making it behave a bit more like a normal forum – simply click the “Post a new Topic” link on the All Comments page.

At present, you have to be registered and logged-in before you can start a new discussion – which was done partly because it was easier, and partly to prevent it from becoming a gateway for spam (there have been close to 36,000 spam comments posted here, although filters have caught most of them). Replies can still be posted without logging-in, however.

Discussions / threads created by users are shown on the All Comments page, with a slightly different colour to distinguish them from comments on frontpage posts. I’ve put together a short introductory post with a few more details. If you have any feedback, suggestions, or if you spot any bugs (highly likely), please let me know in the comments.
