  •  Agree + new bug! (none)
    I agree completely re the need for a new search function, so much that I gave this comment a four!  Then noticed that we seem to have instant updates implemented.  That's terrific!  Should really help the site traffic to avoid reloading entire pages when someone just wants to rate a comment.

    But.

    After I rated, all the child comments disappeared.

    :-O

    I had to open the comment in a new tab to make them come back.  

    I will link to this comment in a bug report.

    That is all.

    •  sometimes child comments disappear (none)
      when you do anything to the parent comment.  Totally wierd.

    •  You must be using Dynamic Threaded (none)
      The DT view is aaaaallll kinds of fucked up since the transition to dKos 3.0.

      Let's see if I can round up the current brokenness with Dynamic Threaded:

      • Rating a parent comment causes all comments attached to it to disappear when the comment auto-reloads to reflect the rating.  This is really fucking annoying.  I have probably not given out as many 4's to parent comments as I should recently, simply because of this defect.

      • Clicking on a linked comment in, for example, your 'My Comments' list takes you to a page where you can view the original comment -- but you can't expand the attached responses!  Argh!

      • Voting on a poll takes you to a page view where you can't expand any non-parent comments -- clicking on the expand button does nothing.  You have to hit 'back' to get to a working page -- which reloads the comments pane and wipes out any [new] indicators.

      • Regardless of the faults with the DT view, it continues to annoy me that you're forced into the Nested view when the number of comments is >= 200.

      •  You are correct, AG (none)
        I'd come across some of these but not all - switching from safari to Firefox seems to have made more of them more obvious to me (hard to say worse).  I think I'd just internalized the problems in Safari and was working around them.  The over 200 switch to Nested is a long time annoyance, right?

        Swapping a functional comment ui for a facelift doesn't seem like such a good deal right at the moment.  Oh well.

        •  Yeah (none)
          The over 200 switch to Nested is a long time annoyance, right?

          Yeah.  Newer main-line releases of Scoop have fairly sophisticated user preferences for setting the number of comments at which one view switches over to another.  Register a user account at BooManTribune and look at the comment preferences page if you're interested in seeing the difference.

          The older, heavily-customized version of Scoop running dKos has one, non-user-modifiable comment-preferences setting for the entire site.

          As long as we're completely off topic, I should mention that dKos probably looks a lot better for me than it does for you.  Here's why.

        •  thanks (none)
          I somehow thought greasemonkey was pc only - that's interesting.  So many different views of Daily Kos now.

          So does anyone have a family tree for scoop variants yet?  Does kuro5hin supply the one true Scoop?
