Put me down for officially disliking the new custom comment pages. So far. They're incredibly confusing -- not because they're different from the standard LJ comment page, but because they're laid out like a regular journal page, which gives one the impression that one's accidentally clicked the link to visit the other person's full journal, instead of having hit the comments link. Plus the actual comment link *on* the comments page is worded the same as the standard journal link (i.e. instead of "Leave a comment" mine would say "Glurble at me") and that's.... disconcerting -- it's hard enough to explain to newbies how to figure out the difference between "reply to original post" and "reply to an individual comment" without there being a clear "reply to original post" link there.

I'm not sure how customizeable they are, though -- to use one, I'd have to dump my custom LJ style. Wouldn't lose it permanently, I know, but but I'd have to go to one of the S2 defaults, while I was playing with the S2 comments style, yes?

Oh Christ, is THAT what the hell has been going on???

I'm an asshat. I kept thinking I clicked into someone's journal by accident.

Nah, that's what I thought the first couple of times too -- then it clicked in my head that no, I was pressingt eh right button - so the new customizeable comments pages must be out.

your icon made me sniffle. It's like a little visual drabble of pain.

poisoninjest made them. The whole set is... like a very long, Te-written novel of pain. ;-)

Um... huh? I think I must be missing something. We can customise comments pages now? *goes off to investigate*

Well, I've been seeing a few here and there, on friends lj's, and it was promised withthe new Style system, so I'm assuming that's what this is -- the beta version, undoubtedly.

*nodnod* That makes sense, from what I've seen too. I did try using the S2 style system, but it doesn't seen to let me use my custom styles so I gave up on it and went back to S1. Ho hum.
