2 Days to go!! Plus comments question

2 Days to go till TANGLE OF NEED releases!

"That'll rot your teeth," Evie said, crunching on a potato chip, the lustrous ebony of her hair curling over the shoulders of her white cashmere cardigan.

"Pot. Kettle. Black."

"God I love salt." Another crunch. "Since I have no shame, I'm going to ask you what it's like being mated."

Question: What do you all think of shifting to threaded comments on the blog? Yes, no, ambivalent?

I don't know what threaded comments are, sorry. So... ambivalent!

Threaded comments? Can you explain in further detail?

Also, love the quote! I'd guess Evie and Sienna.

Yep,I like it, it's great for swapping opinions back and forth

Stephanie said...

Now is that Evie and Sienna or Indigo?

Threaded comments are discussions by topic, which eould mean we could have a 'kaleb' thread or a 'pairings' thread without the conversations getting all tangled up with each other.
I think it's a great idea!

The problem with threading is that they have a limit--so after a fixed number (most seem to be 4 levels) you end up having to jump god only knows how many comments down, to continue the conversation.

Personally, I prefer something like Dear Author's way, where you can have 'reply' link to whatever/whomever you are responding to. That also means that you don't loose replies or new comments in the maze of the different threads.

Snippet: need. book. now....

*sigh*

REALLY hoping this is Sienna/Evie conversation cause that would be AWESOME!!!

Waiting is aweful:( Want... Book... Now......

Not sure about thread issue - so guess I'm ambivalent.

Ohhhhh! Thank goodness that it's almost Tuesday!

I like threaded comments better - it's a lot easier to follow who said what and what the other comments/answers are

If you use intensedatabase or disqus then I'm all for the threaded comments, but Blogspot's threaded-comments support is just lacking.

Also: Awesome quote.

(And soon, soon, I'll get to read TON! <3)

Yes please! For those that dont' know, threaded comments are where you can reply to a specific comment and your reply will post under that comment instead of just at the bottom of the page. It's much easier to have a conversation because you can see who is responding to who.

Please Nalini!! Bring on the threaded comments!! :)
