Parent Comment Link in Inbox
Short, concise description of the idea
Add a link to the parent comment in the Livejournal Inbox, for notifications in a comment thread.
Full description of the idea
If you subscribe to the comments of an entry and they show up in your Livejournal inbox, you get a reply link and a link to the comment itself. But if this comment is a reply to another comment-- say, if you're tracking a specific thread-- then sometimes it's hard to remember what was said before. Often I end up going to the thread and clicking "Parent" so I can know what this comment was in reply to. I think it would be nice to have a link to the Parent comment right there in the inbox.
- comment thread clarification
- less clicking necessary
- expands inbox usage/usability
- coding time
- some people might find it confusing
- not useful if you only subscribe to newly-posted entries and not comment threads
