In our continuing effort to maintain the illusion of user-friendliness here at EricDSnider.com, we’ve added a new feature relating to the comments. And it comes as the direct result of readers like YOU making the request! And also because I thought of it myself anyway and had Jeff implement it!
On the front page of the site, over at the bottom of the right-hand column, you can now see at a glance which articles have the most comments, and which articles have most recently been commented upon.
This is useful because with something like 3,000 articles on the site (that’s movie reviews, “Snide Remarks,” plus all the old stuff), someone might post a particularly witty or insightful comment on some obscure article and you’d NEVER KNOW!
For example, did someone recently post a comment on my review of “From Justin to Kelly” saying “i thought the movie FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY was the most funniest,brightest,creative movie i’ve seen in years”? Yes, yes someone did. But since you have no reason to be looking at the review of “From Justin to Kelly,” you would never see that comment on your own. Thank goodness for a feature that alerts you to such things!
