Question: Do you plan on improving the site to show all active threads instead a couple recent comments? –Your Father
Answer: Yes I most certainly do! Right now, users only see the most recent comments, but on a busy day a visitor may miss a thread that was recently commented on because it gets buried. I have looked at a few options that will basically list all posts with activity in a certain time frame.
In addition, I will make it easier for people to subscribe to the comments for whatever post they like. This would allow a user to see activity on all the threads that he is interested in as it occurs. The ability exists right now, but I have not really supported it… yet!
Also I just discovered a plugin that will allow users to subscribe to threads via email and have new comments emailed as they are posted. I think this is the best solution. More to come on this!
