When I read reviews in the gallery, I can see the number of comments, but can't see the comments themselves. Help please! Thanks.

This just happened to me too. Bleah! Now you have to click on the orange number of comments in order to see them. I'm afraid that I don't find this an improvement for the site.

And now I find that it won't post my comment -- or maybe it will be posted thrice. Is there a reason for this change? Also, adding the avatars, just stretches out the page and, IMHO, doesn't add value to the comments.

I couldn't get a comment to post either....(I use a Mac - wonder if that makes a difference)...don't know what the Avatar change is (or addition?)...

I've tried clicking on the orange comments button, but nothing happens. So no comments.

I can no longer see the comments. When I click on the number of comments, nothing happens. I also cannot post a comment. This is not an improvement! Please go back to the way it was. Thank you!

If it's anything like what happened to me, it got posted thrice. I thought my comment didn't get posted either. It certainly didn't appear anywhere when I clicked the Save button, but then somewhere, somehow it suddenly appeared three times while I was scratching my head.

At the moment I'm finding the change to the comments section disconcerting. I think it still has a few bugs to be worked out so I'll reserve my judgement for now, but I actually prefer it the old way. I really liked reading everyone's comments underneath, especially as sometimes more information was added by the reviewer in response to questions asked in the comments. But who asked me.

Please bring the comments back. They're an important part of the pattern reviews and should be displayed as they were before. Thank you.

Ok I've been experimenting a little.

First to see the comments, scroll to the end of the review and where it says "5 Comments" (just as an example) click on the number 5. You need to click on the number to see the comments. Wait a second or two, then scroll to the bottom of the page again and you should see the comments. They pop up where they can't be seen initially.

To leave a comment type in the little box and hit the Save button. At this point absolutely nothing will happen, but the comment has been saved!!

The only way to see your comment is to exit the review entirely, open the review again, and go through what I wrote in the first paragraph. Refreshing for me only posts the comment twice, although again I couldn't see this until I exited and re-entered the review. There is definitely a bug here that needs to be sorted out.

thank you for the suggestion - I went back and clicked and waited, and waited...nothing....then I refreshed...still nothing...BUT THEN I opened the "read review" again and clicked the "7" (or whatever) and it only took about 2 seconds for the comments to show. I didn't have to scroll either.....someone must have worked a little magic today. Thank you.
