Expand Comment Viewing in "Latest Received" Area

Expand Comment Viewing in "Latest Received" Area

Short, concise description of the idea
Expand comment viewing in "Latest Received" display so that more than 100 comments can be viewed at a time.

Full description of the idea
Currently, in the "Latest Received" area of managing comments for communities[http://www.livejournal.com/tools/recent_comments.bml?show=100&authas=NAME_OF_COMMUNITY], the maximum display is 100 comments which appears on just one page.

My suggestion is to increase the number of comments in the display to 500 comments, for example. (Or for extremely active communities in which case, perhaps the most recent day's comments is more appropriate).

Also, instead of displaying all 500 comments (or the most recent comment activity) solely on one page, display the comments on multiple pages. For example, the most recent 500 comments would be displayed as follows: page 1 will show 50 comments, page 2 will show 50 comments, page 3 will show 50 comments, page 4 will show 50 comments, page 5 will show 50 comments, page 6 will show 50 comments, page 7 will show 50 comments, page 8 will show 50 comments, page 9 will show 50 comments, and page 10 will show 50 comments.

An ordered list of benefits
  • For communities in which trolling, promoting, spam, or off-topic remarks is discouraged, maintainers would now have the ability to pull up the page which summarizes all comments. Maintainers can delete, freeze, and ban people as necessary. They won't have to go into each post individually, expand comments, search through comments, read every comment, etc. just to track down rule breakers. Everything could be dealt with on one page. (It would also be a plus if the IP address of the commenters were displayed. Easier to spot trolls and previously banned people.)
  • More efficient and easier oversight for maintainers over comments.
  • New tool for maintainers to use in their communities (tools are currently lacking in that area).
  • You can view journal entries in greater detail (for example, using the edit entry tool to display entries in a community [http://www.livejournal.com/editjournal.bml]), so it would be good to be able to look at comments in greater detail too.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Some communities are extremely active on a daily basis so generating the "Latest Received" page be slower than others.
  • Time and effort into researching and implementing.
