I don't know if you intended to do this or just screwed up in formatting, but you can now see who posted your comments.

Just so you know.

edit: oh and btw I'm not for or against post comments.

Hopefully this isn't taken away if it was a formatting error, it was certainly good going through the post comments and seeing who left them, lol. But really, when you have the like system and you can see who liked your post, there's no point taking away the option of seeing who left you a post comment because... you know what I'm trying to say here??? We've already taken the step towards visibility???

I think it's a staff thing because only after yesterday was I able to view who made them.

You can see the your post comments in the user control panel. It used to be that you couldn't see who left them unless you were on staff.

To be honest I totally forgot that members aren't meant to see it, so when I was editing the templates that display them, I didn't add in the check to see if they're supposed to show up or not.

I personally like it better this way, but if I remember right most of HQ wanted it to be hidden. I'll double check and see if we can keep it this way--after all, it IS a completely different HQ from back in the day.

It's been a while, but wasn't it said that post comments were going to remain private because of VM's?

If we are going to be able to know who sent the post comment, then we might as well just remove it all together since its just going to function like a stripped down version of the VM and PM systems. Given the amount of server problems we have, it's pointless to waste resources on a stripped down varient of a current system.

Ugh, please either make this anonymous again or clear all post comments before mAking them visible. I see literally no outcome from this other than drama.

Alternatively remove them totally. They seem pointless alongside VMs and Likes if they're public.

If Post Comments are that bad now, just give the option to have the user delete any Post Comment they may get if not report them should they get out of hand.

They are pointless and we did remove them, until a bunch of people complained. :P

Ah, well I'm glad this happened. It eased my mind about something. lol

Doesn't really matter to me if they're visible or not anymore.

I second this SO much. The only reason someone would want them to remain anonymous is because they're probably the type of person who leaves rude comments thinking their opinion matters on any scale.

Let us know people for who they are, having looked at the comments I've received, I can fairly say that two people I thought were respectable turned out to be otherwise.

I wouldn't worry about drama though, I now know these people but it's not like I'm gonna confront them and be all like: "ey guy y u say dis crap to me asdfjklol;,?/".

>_>

The prime reason they complained was because they wanted a anonymous way to comment on a person's post, which is what the post comments let them do.

I used to use post comments to give anonymous feedback about the first posts in clubs or competitions and such, just as a general how it's going/what could improve/what's awesome kind of thing, but I guess it's not the end of the world if they're no longer anonymous. It does seem like there's not much point keeping them though if they aren't anonymous as like many people have said before, it's effectively just a stripped down version of VMs/PMs. I personally haven't experienced all this "rude comments" side of post comments so I don't know exactly how bad that problem is when they are set to anonymous, but it seems to have worked well so far so I'd be in favour of either making them anonymous again or removing them all together.

I think we have a right to know who made comments on our posts, either remove the feature entirely or keep it so everyone can see the comments, it shouldn't be a staff only thing, we should all be able to see. People are much less likely to make snide remarks about posts when they know people can see them, so I don't see much of a negative to this.

Sure it might "cause drama" but if what someone thinks of your post on a Pokémon Forum is so important to you then really. Perhaps they are "pointless" but they're still a used feature, so I'm against taking them away, but we definitely should take it away if you're not going to let us see who is making the comments on the things we post, because that's not fair at all. Another alternative would be to make everyone unable to see who made a comment, either everyone should have it or no one should have it, in my opinion.

You know what happens when you assume.

I'm not a "everything has to be 100% fair because sunshine and rainbows" type of person but I do think they should stay visible, at least the ones after now visible because the ones given before were given under the assumption of anonymity.

We already have something in place for a person to comment about another persons post, and for the person to know who the comment was from. It's the PM system.

I'd support this if all the previous post comments were to be deleted just to keep them anonomous. (Hell, they should have already been deleted since a lot of them were left-overs from the rep system.)

There are different connotations to post comments vs. VMs vs. PMs. One could argue that in that case VMs are pointless and shouldn't exist because PMs exist.

It's been switched back to anonymous (for everyone, including staff) until a final decision is made in HQ.
