Why not use threaded comments?

in #chainbb-suggestions5 years ago

I'm really a fan of threaded comment structure. I think it is a more natural structure for a discussion, because conversations always branch out anyway. And it makes it easier read and find your way around the discussion, because you can easily skip subtopics you are not interested in.

So, I really liked that steemit displays comments in that way and I would love to see the same on chainbb. It would make this forum perfect in my opinion, because otherwise I really like where this project is going so far.

Are there any important reasons why different comment structure was chosen? If not, can I expect it to be changed? Else, please, convince me that current comment structure is better.

Sort:  

Well steemit already uses threaded comments. It definitely creates a different kind of community discussion. I do think that the current ChainBB structure is the traditional BB structure, it evens out the value of every one's comments and keeps the discussion moving more than a threaded model, which seems to have more of a time limit to a thread in how it's most often implemented.

I imagine that if chainbb development continues, it will give you different viewing options.

What do you mean by time limit to a thread?

I like the idea of different viewing options, since it seems like the matter of taste and both have their advantages.

I just meant like reddit for example, where there is a theoretical life to a thread, as the front page algorithm is very time based. Chainbb is taking the traditional BB approach where posts that have most recently been posted on jump to the top.

Yeah, this kind of ordering of threads should be kept like in BB forums. Threaded model could just be adopted for comments inside a thread.
