In my humble opinion, the public comments feature is great. I'd like to have it on for every story I'm going to post, but as far as I can see, it is always off by default and I have to wait until first publishing is through to activate public comments specifically for that story, right?
So I would like a general option for authors to toggle the default for public comments on new stories.
Not that I would ever forget to activate public comments after having waited for endless minutes until my story is through, no, no, not me, at least not again. Or not often.
Anyway, would anyone else like such a feature, and valuable developer's time of SOL spent on it?
