As of late 2018, all logged in users have been able to edit their comments for a short period after posting by selecting the pen icon in the top right-hand corner of the comment.
While editing a live comment, a countdown timer will display indicating how much time there is left to edit the comment before it will be closed from editing.
This feature will allow you to make any edits, fix typos, or even delete the content of a comment. Just keep in mind that any comment that has been edited after posting will display a notice to all users that the comment has been edited or its contents removed.
Ever read a comment on The Roar that summed it up perfectly and needed nothing else added? You can now acknowledge any comment you like with a single click on the ‘thumbs up’ icon in the bottom left-hand corner of every comment.
So please, get liking! The person whose comment you ‘like’ will be notified about it!
Filter comments by ‘Best’
In addition to liking comments, we have added a new way to filter comments, based on the number of likes the comments within a thread have received.
You can access this filter in the dropdown ‘Sort by’ menu at the top of the comments section.
To help you get your message across, some basic formatting tools have been returned to the comment section.
As always, we would love to hear any and all feedback you have for the improvements we’re adding. Please share any thoughts in the comments below or send us an email.
