'new' tag for ha.ckers comments

Well it's a self explanatory thread title.. but some way to track new comments that people make to your blog posts would be nice. Obviously this could prove a pain to program, so maybe on a day you're really in a scripting mood.

If you do, the 'new' image on the main page, next to the comments link, is a given.. but also, a comments.php page which lists all blog posts (including old posts) on a single line each, with the 'new' ones marked can save alot of clicks, and server load, for checking if old posts were recently commented on. <--wow thats a long sentence

However, this has a complication of wut to do initially.. remark all 250 posts' comments as new? i'm a bit lazy to go load each archived post to clear the 'new' >.>

Anywayz, it's sounding like a glad-im-just-suggesting-and-not-coding-this idea ^^; but i think it'll help encourage feedback on the blog posts, even the older interesting ones.. who doesn't love discussion.

Interesting... I've seen plugins of that sort before... is the RSS system for comments not enough? http://ha.ckers.org/blog/comments/feed/

ah, i never noticed the rss feed for comments ^^; .. that should work fine enough for me then, dunno what others think of it

i really should use a different rss reader though, than the built-in firefox one. correct me if i'm wrong but i dont think it supports any auto-reload -.-

which rss reader is the nicest?

Since you are using Firefox, I suggest you look for the extension "Sage".

( On a side note, first post! )
