Link to Starting Comment

Link to Starting Comment

Short, concise description of the idea
A link to a reply to an entry when viewing a thread starting from a specific comment.

Full description of the idea
This is for the default LJ page. I would like to see a link that leads to the parent comment on a "View the thread starting from this comment" page.

Say Jane replied to Lia's entry, Bob replied to Jane's comment, Matt replied to Bob's comment, and Nancy replied to Matt's comment.

Lia's entry
--Jane's comment
----Bob's comment
-------Matt's comment
---------Nancy's comment

If I was viewing Matt's comment, I can only see Matt and Nancy's comment. I could click "parent", but that would only lead me to Bob's comment. I would like a link that will go from Matt's comment to Jane's comment without having to click the parent link multiple times or look through all of the comments made on Lia's entry.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Able to see the entire thread
  • Won't have to click parent multiple times to find the first comment.
  • Won't have to scroll past all of the comments made on the entry
  • Find original start of the thread easier
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Not sure what that would do with screened comments
