Topic: Kongregate / A new way of managing comments?

I guess the only thing that is any sort of issue to me is finding mine when there are like 10 – 20 pages before it. I know the link to see all of only your own comments and what games and dates they were posted, and you can delete it if you want; clicking on the game’s name will of course bring you to the game. If I could really put one thing more, it would be to have a way to jump right to the one you posted so you can get to yours without having to click “next page” in the comments section what feels like a million times. I mentioned comments getting deleted because there are sometimes 10 – 20 pages worth of 2 or less rated comments and 98% of them get about 0, 1 maybe 2 points improvement over 1 or 2 years. I guess being deleted is a bit steep, but it would be cool to have that “jump to mine” click. Actually, that would be the one perfect addition that I think I was trying to embody with my whole first post.

Topic: Kongregate / A new way of managing comments?

I have had other random people I chat with agree that it can be an irritation to find your comment when there are 30 – 50 pages. Some also wonder “is that much necessary?” Who’s going to want to sit and look through 40 pages of comments anyway, ya know? I would see that a good idea if they were all high rated enough but we’re talking about like 1,000 – 4,000 comments on many games; also, many are around 1 – 2 or more years old. This just a suggestion to reduce the amount of pages of comments and keep the ones people found interesting of helpful. A comment is deleted by Kongregate staff if: 1- its rating isn’t at least 4 by its posted date 4 months later; I think 4 months is enough to determine if anyone gives a rip about a comment~~~ 2- its rating isn’t at least 6 by its posted date 8 months later~~~ 3- its rating isn’t at least 8 by its posted date 1 year later. Any comment with a rating 8 or higher gets to stay indefinitely. Lastly, instead of an “underrated threshold” of -3 being hidden, when it reaches -7 it will be flagged for deletion. What do you think? Might it be worth trying? Maybe with some tweaks to it?
