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

When a question / answer on SO has more than 5 comments, the additional comments are hidden on page load. One has to click on the "add / show X more comments" link to display them.

Since I have a very high screen height (1200px), I would like it more if all the comments were visible from the beginning. I don't mind scrolling that much.

Is there something that can be done to make the comments visible from the beginning? Otherwise, this is a feature request.

What I find annoying is the that it doesn't show the first 5, it shows some,which I assume are in order, read them (sometimes they don't make sense) and then expand and re-read – Trufa Jan 24 '11 at 19:43
@Trufa It shows the first five by default unless there are upvoted comments. At which point, it prioritizes by the top 5 rated comments, ordered by their chronological sorting. – Grace Note Jan 24 '11 at 19:47
@Grace Note, Thank you! I had never understood what was it doing, I still find this annoying :) but at least it makes a little more sense. – Trufa Jan 24 '11 at 19:55
For a single, specific answer: Auto expand comments of specific answer when browsing directly to that answer. (Yes, please!) – Arjan Jan 24 '11 at 20:11
