Feature Request: General Public Comments Option for Authors

Hopeless Writer

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?

I think it would be nice for the authors to be able to set the default status for their stories as on or off, as they wish so that a new story will start with their preferred default status in much the same way as they can set some other options as being default on or off.

Some time ago I requested such a facility via the Submission Wizard. I guess it's not a priority.

I guess if only one or a few authors ask for the feature, it is not that likely to become a priority. But if now more authors see this proposal and declare they would like this feature, too, this might change.

So, authors, beat the drum, sound the fanfare, rally the troops, let us group together ...!

Um, or, you know, just reply to this topic?

If readers want to comment on stories, let them post something on the Forum, so I can see it and make a pun.

Just make it better than the poor puny puns you usually utter.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Especially since I always forget how to turn Comments on!

I agree. I'd love that feature, plus those who dislike activating comments across the board wouldn't object to it either.
