In the intervening months since the feature was introduced, there have always been at most 5 comments shown under a post when the page loads. However, it seems that, on Meta, that limit has been tripled.

There doesn't yet seem to be a user preference to tweak this number, so I think that this is likely a bug somewhere.

As an example, check out this post. Instead of showing 5, now 15 comments are displayed under the post, taking up significant space:

See Jeff's answer to this question.

He's just upped the displayed comments from 5 to 15.

  • Don't know how I missed that. I guess this is one of those changes you don't notice right away. Still, I think it would be best to leave this up to the user, as was originally promised. Jul 11, 2009 at 18:07

    Lame, I don't want to be forced to scroll through 15 comments on large discussion pages. Jul 11, 2009 at 18:27
