What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Say one were to ask a question and the answer were to spark a difference of opinion that turns into something very educational. Is there either a way to make sure that all the comments come up on load (not hidden after 3 or 4 comments) or another place to migrate the discussion in order continue it?

After further consideration, I have decided to request such a feature. Certainly one that loads pages with all comments expanded if one would so choose, and perhaps one where the OP can force a comment thread to be expanded in order to highlight which areas they find most helpful. I believe that such a feature requires a little refinement before it is properly considered

The problem is that SO is not a discussion site, so any suggestion for a feature that would encourage such discussion would be discouraged. –  Robert Harvey Jan 13 '10 at 18:38

@: Currently, I doubt so. Are you requesting this feature?

another place to migrate the discussion in order continue it?
@: I'm assuming you are refering to SO site. If the thread should be in another site e.g. meta or SU, it will be migrated. If it remains where it is, I don't see any reason to move it.

Chat sites (where this sort of thing can happen) for each site are in the process of being launched which will take the following format.

stackoverflow.com
meta.stackoverflow.com
chat.stackoverflow.com

Currently in beta.
