Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

As of early September, the Enter key submits comments on most sites. I know there was some grumbling about this functionality at first, which is normal for UI changes, but it seems like most people have gotten comfortable with it now. It still hasn't been carried over to Area 51, though. Is this intentional, or an oversight? I, for one, would like to be able to submit A51 comments with Enter, now that I'm used to the behavior.

@Arjan, thanks, I actually looked up that URL and forgot to put it in the post! – Pops Oct 10 '10 at 19:36
I remember having read somewhere that Area 51 is based on a frozen SE-2.0 version and does not receive the main branch updates (usually) – Tobias Kienzler Oct 11 '10 at 10:19
@Tobias, that is the reason, you're right. But I think it would be nice if they'd port this feature over. – Pops Oct 11 '10 at 13:16
@Popular Demand: apart from some bugs, yes... – Tobias Kienzler Oct 11 '10 at 13:38
@Tobias, interesting. But whether those bugs should be fixed -- they should -- is irrelevant to whether the behavior should be implemented at A51. – Pops Oct 11 '10 at 13:57
@pop true too, it would really be good if A51 received backports. Also e.g. the inbox – Tobias Kienzler Oct 12 '10 at 7:12

We pulled in the press-enter-to-submit-comment change, so the Area 51 comment form has the same behavior as the rest of the network now.

will you also backport the inbox? – Tobias Kienzler Oct 13 '10 at 7:12
