:I take back what I said in the tags of a previous…
It’s always been super easy to erase all comments on a post I dunno what you’re talking about
Well yes, you could always highlight and delete. But you could also stop at any point, deleteing some comments but not others. This update makes it harder to keep only SOME of the comments, and way easier to delete them all with literally one click. They changed it so that now when you go to reblog a post, all the reblog-comments are frozen as one big block. This prevents you from tampering with previous people’s comments, which is kinda nice. But it also has a big “x” in the top-right corner that lets you delete the entire block of comments, including the one that the original poster made, which is SHIT.
There is a workaround: you click on the name of the person whose comments you want to keep, follow the post to their blog, and reblog it from there. But people are lazy as hell and they’re not gunna think to do that. They’re just gunna reblog from the dash and hit that “X” and delete EVERYTHING. As someone who uses art and words in tandem for my posts, this pisses me off a LOT. Very few of my AU doodle posts make any goddamn sense without my sentences at the bottom expanding on them.
And what about RPers who like to keep chains of conversation all on the same post but delete comments from the top down as they go, to save space? Shit outta luck.
This update has a nice premise, but horrible execution imo.
