- Popup vs. Inline
The box that pops up when starting a new Comment Thread is in the middle of the page and it is not movable. When writing a comment, unless it is very short, I often want to be able to read the original post as I am writing the comment and sometimes cut/paste from the post into the comment, and I can't do either of those while the comment box is displayed.
Suggestion: Comment editing box inline in the post page instead of a popup.
- Edit button
The edit button is currently only available only when the full thread page is displayed. However, on that page it is displayed next to "link" in the header of each comment. Since "link" is shown in the same header when viewing the first 5 comments on the main post page, include "edit" there as well - no additional screen real estate needed, so no downside that I can think of. This is particularly for "edit" because if a user is editing their own comment then the need to jump to a separate page to see All Comments is not needed - they know what they wrote and what/why they want to change it.
Suggestion: Add "edit" next to "link"
