When I click at the bottom of my Stack page to see the comments on the next page, it just sends me back to the main Forums page.

 

Also, I couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting emails alerting me to comments on the 3 Stacks I follow. I now see that you have to set this as a separate preference, apart from doing the same thing for new posts in Forum threads. I suggest that these should be consolidated, so that you automatically get the same treatment for both.

I can confirm that the issues seem to affect everyone - all comments past the initial page where the Stack is posted are inaccessible.

I could not fix the issue, but patched it by allowing more comments per page.

The patch has just failed; the second page of comments can't be displayed.

hm, I have extended the section again, but please don't use that space for discussions - take these into the forums. The comment section is meant for short points about the stack as a whole. 

in the future, sprawling comments and discussions will be removed.

If longer-discussions about stacks are not going to be posted in the stacks area, then I am unsure of the usefulness of having a separate stacks feature.

I agree with Mind, and am puzzled by your reaction, Caliban. There's no point having Regimens/Stacks if people can't discuss the rationale of their constituents. The feature itself is a PITA for all but the simplest of Regimens/Stacks, and the comments sections are just dysfunctional, so I'd suggest instead abandoning the whole function and returning to a Regimens category and the ability to become an editor for one's onwn Regimen thread.

Yes LongeCity is predominantly a forum, but we have other features and other ways of curating and presenting information. 

 

There is a page for:  pictures, articles, videos, links, files, and quizzes. Sure, all of of these can/could be done or discussed in the forums but we want to give people some alternative. 

 

None of them are super slick like they would be on a dedicated high-budget commercial site like instagramm or youtube but they do the trick and provide a focused accessibility for people who don't want to trawl through forum discussions. This is why we have and keep them, even though awareness of them is very low. Most have 'comments' functions but these in turn are not meant to replace the place for proper discussions, which is the forum. Who goes to youtube for having discussions in the comments?  

 

The 'regimens' feature is to give people a one-stop quick overview of regimens people use. You can browse by category, look at the ratings/popularity, and search by compound (and the search also can links you back to forum discussions). As far as I am aware, your regimen Michael, is the only one that has, from the outset, positioned itself differently, as a scientific treatise inviting-welcoming-relying on lengthy discussions. So, yes, if you want of course you can remove the stack and return to curating a moderated thread on the forum.
