That’s weird. On some PT threads I’m getting a comment box, but on others, people are commenting, yet I’m not getting the box.

For instance here I see the box, but on “How can you tell it isn’t science?” I don’t.

Any one else getting this?

The comments box is appearing just after the article for me. Here and on other posts.

We’re changing to format of these pages. The new format will appear when pages are rebuilt.

Pardon me for expressing taste, but putting the comment box at the TOP of an extremely long discussion when one is responding to things at the bottom is counter-intuitive and feels “just wrong”.

Not mentioning that with very long threads, the presence of comment box was always evidence to me that, yes, the page did really load completely. Now I can’t be sure.

How about putting two comment boxes, one at the beginning, and one at the end?

Re “putting the comment box at the TOP of an extremely long discussion when one is responding to things at the bottom is counter-intuitive”

I’ll second that!

Re “ the presence of comment box was always evidence to me that, yes, the page did really load completely.

I’ll second that too!

Another thought - having the post-comment box at the bottom lets one immediately see if comments are still allowed on that thread, just by hitting the “end” key.

Still another thought - why put the “Commenters are responsible […]” box on threads that don’t allow comments? ;)

Otoh, the new format makes it easier to go straight to the latest post in the thread, just by hitting the “end” button.
