Since we have direct links to comments now, IMHO it would only be fair for comment links in the chat to be treated on the same level as question and answer links.

(This question feels kinda empty, and I don't even have a pony picture handy to pad it...)

    I think that pony has a jgs stuck in its hair.

  • Dammit, what did I get wrong! Goes back to the IDE... Mar 30 '12 at 20:43
  • @MarcGravell They both seem fine, although the format is kind of strange (I would think putting the comment's score and "C: Post Title" for the title would be more consistent) Mar 30 '12 at 20:44
  • @MarcGravell - it just worked for me on both questions and answers.

  • The onebox of the comment displays the questions / answers votes instead of the comment's vote itself. I believe this is a bug..

  • @jokerdino actually it was intentional, to use a consistent format and not be confusing what the number was, since it is adjacent to the post title. We could additionally add the comment score, maybe? Mar 31 '12 at 7:12
  • I think adding both the posts and comments' score would be information overload. I can live with how it currently is.

  • The chat formatting faq still says that just "Stack Exchange questions, answers, and users" can be oneboxed

  • @AakashM true - in addition to comments, we also don't call out "sites". Will review. Jun 21 '12 at 16:21
