Comment RSS

Comment RSS

Short, concise description of the idea
Viewing the most recent comments to your LJ or your post as an RSS feed.

Full description of the idea
This will allow anyone to view or subscribe to the most recent comments made to a LiveJournal or to a single LJ post as an RSS or Atom feed. It is based off of the "comment feed" feature for both WordPress and Drupal, and it has been implemented as a hack for MySpace blog comments.

An ordered list of benefits
  • It will be very useful for high-membership LiveJournals or communities, as comments are likely to be made very frequently to posts. It will allow one to keep up with discussions without the need of an e-mail subscription.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Comment RSS may not provide the best context for a member to reply to a comment, as it will only provide either the subject or the first few words of the beginning sentence.
