I have seen many people share links which go directly to a specific comment. I wanted to do this too today but I couldn't figure out how. I had to search here on Meta to find this Q&A:
It turns out that the timestamp beside each comment is actually a link to that comment.
I have a few problems with the way this works currently:
- This was not intuitive to me
- The timestamp is not formatted like a link, infact it is often greyed-out or otherwise unemphatic
- The text of this link is contextual ("yesterday" vs. "19 hours ago" vs. "Dec 19 '11 at 17:48") which makes me have to think about where to look for the link
Can we somehow improve the UI of comments so that the perma-link is more intuitive to find?
