    That however will not fix the fundimental issues of having comments within a thread. Purely as the scenario above would be fine provided there has only been comments to one post since your last visited. The second you get a comment to post 1 and post 26 and post 30 etc you are taken to post 1 (since this is the first commented) and you are then left again trawling through the post to find comments, or you miss them completely.

    IMO the comments system could actually make a forum look extremely quiet due to less content being posted at the end of a thread, and therefore making it look as if it has not been replied to. Dont get me wrong I can see situations where it "could" be useful, however only with granular control over it. Without full usergroup and forum permissions for who can use it the comment system is pointless IMO.

    What if there is a new comment, and then further down, perhaps on another page, a new reply? Where would the New/Unread link then bring me?

    That only happens when you follow a link to show only that post and its comments. It is very annoying but not as high priority issue wise as other things.

    (So image uploading is horrible as well. It refused to resize my image and made me resize it manually before uploading but then the embedded version is tiny, even when clicked)

    I disagree completely.

    They are useless even in that thread since you have to trawl backwards to find answers to questions you have already read.

    It doesn't remove them. If you turn off commenting, it leaves the existing ones but just doesn't allow you to comment any more.

    I agree. The comment system is making it difficult to browse threads and takes much more time. It is very frustrating at times.

    Completely agree with this. Post commenting is very useless imho.

    Sounds good to me, I've read it all multiple times anyway.

    Useful in what way? It is actually possible to have a workable comment system, other forum platforms have it and it works but here it's just a waste of everybody's time unless you particularly enjoy re-reading old content time and time again in order to try and find the new stuff.
    That makes it more fun dont you think? Like an easter egg hunt!
