[SOLVED] Feature request: Links to specific comments in the "Comments" menu

Hello!

On the "Comments" tab on our profiles we have a list of all the comments we have made: For each entry there's a header that links to the forum (or song/translation/collection page) it was posted in/on, and if the comment was longer than one and a half line or so, we also get a link titled "more".

What I see as a problem though, is that clicking on that link leads us to the first entry of that particular forum (just like clicking the header would) and not to our comment, which, for a thread with many posts (like "Reporting mistakes [Lyrics/title/song/album/etc.]") will mean that we have to click and scroll through page after page and post after post in search of our comment, in order to be able to read the rest of it. I wish there would instead be a link directly to the comment in question, like we already have in the "Notifications" menu with the "new comment" links. And I wish for that when it comes to short, one line comments as well; perhaps the header could take us there? (In which case we wouldn't need the "more" link, which already is redundant, come to think of it...) If we wish to go to the first post, that would be easily done once we're in the right thread anyway.

I hope this makes sense to you.

Thanks in advance! Regular smile

Hi. Thanks for suggestion! I think it's a good idea. I've forwarded it to the admins.

This bug is probalbly the oldest of the site, but fixing it would sure be a godsend Regular smile

The same problem occurs when comments span more than one page (which can happen frequently when natives try to help me with Russian!). That makes following the discussions quite difficult, since the "new answer" indicators are cleared when you navigate manually to the page containing the new comments.

Well, even the oldest bugs are fixed, eventually. Thanks for heads up!
