Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

I understand that comments are intended for brief queries about the post content, but in the Meta sites I sometimes find it useful to be able to quote part of a post in a comment. Block quotes already work in comment threads, so I can enter the following:

> Excerpt from an answer

Query about that specific part

and see this:

Excerpt from an answer

Query about that specific part

However, I can't use lists to give several points/queries. Entering the following:

> - Excerpt from an answer

1. Query about that specific part

gives this:

Excerpt from an answer

Query about that specific part

rather than this:

  • Excerpt from an answer
  1. Query about that specific part

I don't see this as an essential feature (I was surprised and delighted to find that block quotes are supported in comment threads) so I've tagged this as a feature request rather than a bug.

I'm interested to know whether this was a deliberate decision to keep comments simple, or something that you'd be open to adding at some point.

Why does this post require moderator attention?
You might want to add some details to your flag.
Why should this post be closed?

Pretty sure it's the latter. (1 comment)
