New Streetsblog Feature: Comments Archive

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’ve been making a few changes around here. Today we are introducing the Comments Archive. You can find a permanent link to the Comments Archive over in the sidebar at the bottom of both Hot Topics and Recent Comments.

We think that those who enjoy reading and participating in conversations on Streetsblog will find the Comments Archive to be another useful way to track ongoing discussions across the site. For now, the functionality is pretty simple — it is basically just a running list of reader comments in chronological order. We’ll probably be fancying things up a bit in the near future, adding searching and sorting.

As always, chime in if you have any suggestions about this or anything else…
